A Year of Change

It started in utter disaster, the end of a kingdom, the destruction of a year's work. The branch change felt like a nail in the coffin, a bottomless pit from which there would be no return.

And then began the revival, the reconstruction. Some losses are irreparable, but not irreplaceable. So while much was lost, a great deal was also regained. At the end, it was a huge race together, as Civil Second Year tried to finish its most difficult semester ever without ending in catastrophe.

But even apart from academics, a lot of gains were met. Some of the nicest people I have ever met came to my help and I met seniors with whom I share a strong bond. The Roorkee Campus now feels like home and cycling back from JB to RKB via EC Circle seems normal, even if it is at 1:00 AM!

It was the worst of years, it was the best of years. And it was different for everyone. Now, as I enjoy a well-deserved break of two months, it's time to look back at the year that was. OTFS presents its second End-Year Review, through this summer.
