11th of June was the date when I landed in Hyderabad to kick start this new journey I was about to embark on. Till then it hadn’t dawned upon me about how big this change was going to be : It was only when the cab zoomed through the gates that read – Institute of Management Technology, Hyderabad, that I realized the gravity of this paradigm shift.
With that being said, this situation might resonate with all of you who are here to experience the hostel life for the first time. We all came here with a set of predefined notions about the life in a hostel, didn’t we? I, for one, was totally enticed by the concept of living with friends in a hostel all thanks to Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots.
To say that my expectations were high would be an understatement. I was that stoked to experience hostel life, and it showed.
