As you step through the wooden doors to the second floor, you feel the music flow through your veins, the rhythm gently coaxing your legs to fasten your pace toward the source. The corridor buzzes with the animated chatter of the students, their worrisome creases on their foreheads now barely visible. Students scurrying around in their colorful attires, their chiming laughs filling the atmosphere, abating the usual tensed environment. This is Batch VI. This is us.
We commenced our university days precisely 2.5 years ago, and we’re thrilled to say that we have made it halfway in one piece. This called for a celebration, and if anyone knows how to party, it’s us.
A fusion of Eid Milan and Half Grad, this celebration took place on the 17th of July, 2018. The students pitched in money for the ornaments and cuisine. An hour before the party, we took the liberty to embellish the place, covering the lights with colored cellophane paper, blowing up what seemed like an infinite amount of blue, black, and white balloons, and adorning the walls with vivid hanging décor. We put up all kinds of decorations to give the place an uplifting look, instead of a bland lecture hall.
A few students managed to give an outstanding dance performance after merely two hours of practice, while the rest hollered and clapped till their hands ached. A game of mimicry kept everyone entertained.
The day ended with students sitting together in a mass, eating heartily while simultaneously, cracking jokes and chuckling jovially, and afterward, a batch picture that signified unity, harmony, and sheer bliss.
A huge shout out to the lads of DPT Batch VI, for arranging and managing an unforgettable event with such grace and character.
DPT Batch VI.
