We were back after two decades in those familiar surroundings
Much had changed, yet nobody felt out of place
Such was the charisma of ‘College Reunion’ that nobody was too busy to miss.
The once loved faces and figures were transformed by wrinkles and pot bellies
Yet, no one felt the need to hide or a reason to point.
The evening that had started with an awkward ‘hello’, soon gave way
to loud laughs, nostalgic memories, back-slaps and continuous chatter
The college queen of yester-years was today a chic kitty party diva
The secret crushes of yesterday, shared a hearty laugh and swapped family mantra
The first benchers seemed disenchanted in their secure governement jobs
The smart ones shared their corporate growth with anyone who cared
And it was the back-benchers who spoke about investment, entrepreneurship and profits.
The bitter foes of past had patched up and once passionate lovers were amicable strangers today
Yes, much had changed, yet today was special.
Coz, the unforgettable past and the beautiful future converged on the borders of today as we took a trip down the memory lane

That’s such an evocative piece. Takes me back to my school/college reunions. More power to your pen!
Thank you for reading and liking
That’s a beautiful piece for sure. 🙂 I’m in touch with many of my old batchmates, but I’m not sure we’ll have a reunion anytime soon. I’ve been back to the alma mater, and yes, there was a flood of memories! So I can relate to that part! Thankyou.
Such a lovely piece, Neha. Transported me to my school reunion. Loved it.
Old pals are treasured n the relationships are just like wine, that gets better with age. Loved reading the post, it reminded me of all the frolic.
What a lovely piece, Neha. Your words created such a vivid imagery and made me travel back in time too.
Loved your piece about reunions . Reunions indeed are magical unless one has not undergone some misfortune !
You have written it so beautifully….loved each word and line…I keep meeting my old friends from school and college and can relate so well !
School friends always stay in our hearts and your piece did full justice to this quote. Enjoyed reading it and thought back to my friends who catch up from where we left off years back!
School days, childhood friends, care-free talks always remain close to our hearts. Things change, places change but memories don’t.
I felt so nostalgic reading this , missed those lovely days and more so missing a reunion badly. It’s fun to catch up with the ones who’ve been actually close to us while growing up.
Reunions are Fun aren’t they. School and college friends are special indeed. Lovely post .Enjoyed reading it a lot.

Reunions are always so much fun! There is so much to reminisce and laugh about
This stirs up all the school and college memories. Reunions are exactly this and the moments shared are priceless.
Welcome back after that long gap. We all did miss you. I am sure we will have many posts coming our very soon.. 🙂
Reminiscing about my 1st meetup and how I wanted to set an impression
And once we met, all the bravoda melted and it was all me. So it was picking up from where we literally left our lives behind.
Such a beautifully crafted thought…got ke back to my college memories and my alumini days …miss my college and school.days
