The last wish

What do you do when you are leaving your organization? Get your financial details updated, serve the notice period, give KT, write the customary goodbye mail to all colleagues.

But there are some great souls there who regard colleagues as friends and go beyond the goodbye mail and write masterpieces. One of my friends, Surender alias Pinku wrote this gem of a mail when he was leaving Satyam.

Title: The last wish

Two years ago we joined a new college.

To earn a few penny and gain some knowledge.

Far from home in the cold chilly weather

At heaven of STC we all got together.

The morning rush with the roommate

Racing with others for not getting late

The torture started at the strike of Seven

We survived by keeping messenger online

The afternoon session was really overkill

Since Cafeteria food was indeed a sleeping pill

Submitting the assignments n projects was a total waste

As we followed the magic trick of copy-paste.

The junk forwards continued to flow

We waited whole week for the new movie show

Along with friends when everything was quiet

We roamed around the campus till the late night.

The modules and compre didn’t let us sleep

Some cleared away while others had to weep

Results came out, no more hosting

We had to leave, as per the posting.

Battle for Projects then began soon

Mailboxes spammed by every goon

Giving last look to the gratifying paradise

The Satyamites(ELTP) left with the watery eyes.

We all settled down in the different places

Though memories of Hyderabad left in the traces.

New friends and colleagues now we have made

The old intimacy is slowly going fade

2 years gone by since we had a start

Moments of past is stirring my heart

In the noisy world today am losing my mind

The last wish I make, if time could rewind……….
