I miss racing down from Science block to girls' hostel in the pouring rain and going back again with more umbrellas for the guys! I miss mass-bunking english class and frying fish in the canteen. I miss gossiping about the latest couples in college post college week. I miss Chapel every morning and evening. I miss the loathsome food in the refectory! I miss the ghost stories at night, when the lights would go off and even a trip to the loo would become a nightmare! I miss laughing till my eyes watered at some silly joke inside class. I miss conspiring against the wardens and planning all kinds of catastrophies on them. I miss the green lawns where we would sit all day watching the beautiful blue sky. I miss the trips to the ladies store where everything would be priced at Re. 1 more than the MRP. I miss climbing those 199 steps to high hall to see UCC bathed in silver moonlight.
I miss college week, when football field would become accessible to the girls too! I miss Ashim running around trying to get everyone to the grounds in the mornings so we could at least participate. I miss Bah Vid pulling his very short shorts still shorter while playing badminton and Peggy screaming "Sexy!!" I miss Diamond and Basuk wearing jeans for the first time in college because "It's college week man!" I miss those motivational speeches to Pegasus, because we would lose all the time! I miss all our seniors who would protect us and who ultimately became such good friends.
I miss falling in love at UCC. I miss those stolen moments beside the lake, away from prying eyes...
I miss the memories created in an era so different and distant now.
I miss UCC.
