Sneaking under the desk only to have that one bite to buffer down the hunger pangs, those promises of never leaving your friends no matter what, standing beside your buddy in every mischievous act, bunking classes or getting them cancelled, wanting to be either the favorite student or a cool kid, focusing on resume building before you enter the corporate world, rekindling with all those breakups and patch-ups, and lastly learning the most important life lessons, we all grew up. The college days might not be lived again but their memories still bring a smile when you travel back to the memory lane. At times tears roll down, making you miss every moment you spent with your college buddies!
Before you miss them more and cry out loud and these tears of happiness turn into tears of sorrow, how about planning a college reunion? How about recreating those crazy moments? How about unwinding the old days at an entirely new place? Sounds exciting?
Riding on the roads covered with palms on both sides, filling the air with your touches of laughter, posing crazily at different forts and beaches, night parties and luck games in casinos; this reunion will be a blockbuster!
Bursting off the office chaos, who don’t wish to get high on life? Spending time with your college friends in the warmth of mountains, waking up to panoramic views of hills, drunken dance around bonfires, trekking through the mountain trails, witnessing the local life of nearby villages like Malana and Kalga, your trip to Kasol has to be a memorable one. No one would deny when I say mountains have this special power of soothing our souls. Being surrounded by the fresh air is a detox from your daily mundane schedules which helps you say bye to the over-thinker within you.
Amidst the magnificent hills of Karnataka and it’s perpetuating landscapes is Coorg, yet another addition to your reunion trip ideas. It is a pleasant place for nature lovers.

Going back to the days when completing assignments was a headache and flattering professors was our only job brings peace to our minds. We’ve been so busy in our professional lives that we’ve forgotten to take care of our relationships. It’s time to bless ourselves with those joyful moments and relations leaving behind our professional front and becoming an open book in front of our college buddies again!
