What Makes your Institute specialAugust 1, 2018
I entered a course I was not aware of, my family’s situation was not so charming either and worst of all I was forced to move out of the Gulf after 19 long yrs. The part that hit me the most was that I would never go back to those facilities again. Then I entered Manipal and realized that maybe life had different but interesting plans. The beautiful infrastructure, my beloved cricket grounds, weirdly the anti-ragging squad… of course the freedom of being in a student’s city was something unique to this campus. Coming from an all-boys school and walking into a lecture hall with 80% girls was not the most comfortable start. Being in such a humbling environment, you tend to move ahead and think otherwise.
So what makes your institute special? … I’m not really sure.. From walking down the Endpoint road to witness the sunrise or to lay back on the sand with friends and watch the calming sunset from the beach, makes you appreciate time and the beauty of nature. From running around with a lab coat under the hot sun to wishing for a raincoat in the pouring cats and dogs makes you understand the nature of unpredictability. From self-studying in a palace for a library to late night group studies in a hostel shows you the vastness and desperation for knowledge. From running around the sports fields to being still at a position to treat a patient in a group, it teaches you teamwork and active understanding.
Be it making a boring lecture fun to watching Infinity War in Inox, you realize how friends become family. From witnessing the great extent to which the staff would go to impart their knowledge to witnessing the great extent to which the Rickshaws would go to loot you, it teaches you the reality of humanity. From eating lavishly in Eott to ending up in a mess to save cash, it makes you understand responsibility. From creative writing in a hopeless exam to exposing your creativity and talents on stage, it makes you realize that sometimes you need to come out of the box. From being a part of college student groups to being a part of clubs all over the campus makes you ironically realize the unity in diversity among different courses and highlights the fact that you are the future. And finally from living and working in this top-notch institution to voluntarily providing service for the poor and needy makes you realize how ungrateful you are in life. So coming back to the question… What makes your institute special? I think it gives you the experience of a lifetime and makes you understand the values of life.
