Farewell 2012 – This Is It

Posted: February 5, 2012 by Nitesh in Nitesh

This really was it, the end, the infinite imortalis, the end of it it all.

We 11thies did our best to put up a great show for you guys, and I hope it went to your satisfaction. I don’t know about you guys, but some of us got pretty senti thinking about our own farewell next year. We understand now how much this school means to anyone, and how we’re going to miss everything that comes our way in some form or the other within the campus of GBS, Saket.

In the end, I believe our hard-work paid off. First of all, major kudos to the backdrop guys. In my opinion, this was the best backdrop GBS has ever seen, and certainly one of the most technical ones. I know how much the guys of SS1-B worked on it, and it all ended off with Saurav Roy lying across 4 art room tables placed together painting the Scooby-Doo gang.

Now that this has all finished, I think that I can share some details that people have been demanding from the 11thies. I do think that we deserve some applause for managing to keep our mouths shut, and so keep the sanctity of the farewell. Today, we all are so bloody exhausted, bodies ache, minds off the radar, no level of concentration, and yeah, no god-damn sense of time. Thank God it’s a Sunday, and a good long sleep was needed, and received. But nah, I won’t really share details. Let’s just keep the farewell shrouded in as much mystery as possible 😉

I hope the soon-to-be alumni appreciated our efforts to put on a great show for them, and enjoyed their last day in the school. All of them looked great, and special congrats to Abhishek and Malini, our Mr. and Ms. GBS. Everyone looked glamorous in their suits and saris, and we were in awe for having seen the transformation. It was your day guys, and I hope you enjoyed it.

We did our best with the dances and all, and it all came back to us when the 12th ka boys gang stood up and started dancing along with us. The Bhangra boys did their bit, and it was a great sight to see them dancing in their suits. Even the teachers smiled at them and their new-found sense of freedom, and it was all we could do to not join in with them. We did our bit at the end of the play, storming onto the stage, reminding them what they’re going to miss at the end of the day, and inversely, how much we’re going to miss them. It’s the dawn of a new day at GBS, and it will be a sad day without you guys there all the time.
