So we are through with our first year at College of EME NUST. Most students who came here were pretty much unaware of the army code of conduct and the dreaded treatment that is given to freshmen.
Although most were prepared to deal with the ragging they had heard about from students of other universities, a senior shouting “chin up” an inch from your ear as if u were hearing impaired, or asking u to “get down on your hands and give me 50” as if it were an army boot camp was not what most De 31 students were expecting. Shifting from “bhai” to “Sir” took some effort and a few high pitched shouts from seniors. It wasn’t long before most of us realized that seniors get priority in most affairs.
And now that our first year is over, it is finally time for us to assume the role of a senior… a “sir”, those mean people at school who make sure that your life is hell. Like most of my degree mates, I can’t wait to welcome the new degree …. as a senior.
