Canteen Mein Bahot Kuch Pakta Hai!




“Uncle, 4 cutting chai aur 3 vada pav dena!”, “Aur kitna time lagega?”, “paise kal deta hoon, abhi likh lo”, “pehle kha le, fir assignment kar!”
Everyone is familiar with all these dialogues! They all remind us of a time, a place, an aura, a bucket of memories and a safe haven all through our college life; the canteen!

CANTEEN; where every corner has things to sell and every table has a story to tell! It is the only place where gatherings of friends and teachers are found simultaneously, both in their most chilled out phase, not worrying about each other. In fact, it is a place with many memories, talks and nostalgia associated with it that reminds everyone of their canteen days. If we recall the perfect canteen atmosphere at any given time, we’ll see a place:
  • Which is the “KATTA” for all
  • Where everyone is always busy
  • Where all meetings are held
  • Where candid moments are captured
  • Where new friends are made
  • Where life is always awesome
  • Where memories are made

In entire college life canteen is always the best part! That cutting chai with the aroma of ginger, the famous poha, idli chutney, spicy masala pav and tangy noodles determines our everyday cuisines!

Place Matters:
After a strange observation, we found out that canteen is a place that has lot of corners and strategically placed tables which can be chosen to either hide or be directly visible!  At one corner there are some gossiping guys whereas at another there is a group finishing their assignment at eleventh hour.

Canteen is not just a place where you go, eat and leave. It possesses the energy to lift up your mood every time you enter. In fact, it is a place where the ‘chai wale uncle’ and the ‘serving guy’, all become buddies and know each other by names. It is a place where you have smile-buddies who just smile and you revert the gesture without knowing each other.
It is, in fact, a different world altogether which is to be cherished, loved and experienced!

So, when are you visiting your COLLEGE CANTEEN next?

Hostel - Ek Aashiana



Dharma productions beautifully planted the idea of college even before we knew it. Admit it, we all have been dreaming about our college since we first saw ‘Kuch Kuch Hota hai.’
And finally the spring came.

Remember that day when everybody at your home was teary eyed realising their little one isn’t little anymore and terribly anxious thinking about things like:
  • Your food
  • Your life
  • Your studies
  • and of course, your friends at the hostel

Whereas at the same time you were occupied packing hefty suitcases, all prepared to leave the comfortable nest and step into a new yet amusing phase of college- Hostel!
Little did you know that you shall crown the hostel as your second home.


Hostel, what might resemble an alien world as you open the door in the beginning turns out to be the best thing that can ever happen to you.

Hostel life is a very sincere teacher
It teaches you how to be independent and self sufficient. It teaches you, “sharing is caring” as you learn to take care and be there for fellow friends, who too are away from home. Remember, those days when one’s toothpaste was everybody’s toothpaste and it didn’t matter if you actually were wearing your t-shirt. It teaches you that life at times can be difficult but you can make through.
It teaches the significance of family, the value of 50 rs. meal and above all, the joys in little-little things.
And, oh well, the people, you develop the bond for a lifetime with them.
From being there through thick and thin, the late night conversations, those times of helping each other with studies and learning, those pizza sessions and the constant rector’s fear, you have seen it all with them.

While you pack your college post 4 years in few carton boxes and a million memories, you thank yourself for coming a long way, for blooming through it all.

Nostalgic much?

We can’t wait to hear about your hostel experiences. Tell us about your hostel life, your favorite memories or your most fond person during your hostel life in the comments section below. Let them know you are thinking of them too.
