Hello, beautiful people! So this is it, the last edition that I get to work on. This is the last time I will be writing for the college magazine that I have come to dearly love. So, let’s take a quick recap.
It feels like only yesterday that I sat with a small group of people from all years, in the first two rows of our auditorium. We met the creators of the magazine and were being introduced to the team. I knew then, that I’d get to meet some really cool people and have a great time at college.
It was the magazine’s first-anniversary edition (Issue 9) that I had a privilege to make my first contribution to. Over the course of the next 4 years and 30 editions, kMITRA would evolve to be bigger than ever. We have celebrated our 4th anniversary last October, and I’m grateful to have had a chance to be a part of the team for so long. As of today, we are a team of 40 with the entrance of 14 new members from the first year. All very interesting, creative and capable people who I’m sure will take the magazine to new heights.
“Think. Integrate. Evolve” is the motto at kMITRA. Who said that? I remember Shriram Pydimarri telling me about it. He said the magazine was a place where I would get to meet like-minded people, have thought-provoking discussions and benefit from each other. Rightfully so, over the course of time, I have met some very talented, intelligent and passionate people and made amazing friends at kMITRA. We would spend hours together at frequent meetings, have very interesting and engaging conversations after going off our meeting’s agenda. I’ve had so much to learn from the team about kindness, talent, patience, and enthusiasm. The magazine has come to be the best thing that has happened to me in my entire time at KMIT.
I was sceptical at first about college life in Hyderabad, I had different plans and saw them as the only way I could have the time of my life. Four years later, it’s safe to say that I was so wrong. I met some lovely people, learned cool stuff, organized a couple of events and made fond memories here, and if given a chance would go back and relive it all.
It doesn’t feel like it’s been long since we’ve bid farewell to our seniors, and yet here we are, my juniors bidding farewell to us. Funny how time flies when you’re having fun. I will miss all the fun I’ve had here, all those fun meetings and witty conversations. I will miss planning for just another edition and another team lunch. I will miss all of you people. Thanks for the lovely time, team. You have given me a lifetime worth of memories to cherish. All the best for the years to come, I’d love to keep seeing all the exciting stuff that you people do. xo
