Should Senior Speak Up? [Part 1]

The clock of my notebook is telling me that its 5:12 A.M. and I should take a nap if I intend to attend the Friday Prayers and the Startup Insider Session today at LUMS. It has been a night full of questions and random thoughts. Questions and issues that are perhaps not so complex but they are critical ones for which my soul needs immediate solution.

Since yesterday, most of the stuff on the TV, Radio & Web has been "valentined up". I also saw the video of Fuzon's song "Khamaj" tonight and loved the "seniorism" shown by Shaan. So, the upcoming valentine day initiated this thought process.

We the 3 Musketeers, Rafaeel, Basim and Salman were once like inseparable friends who lived by the motto "one for all, all for one" as Salman & Basim didn't have all these girls roaming around them like 2 years back.

I clearly remember that it was 27th December 2006, when I entered the university campus to give my final exam of "Probability & Random Processes". I already wasn't feeling well in that winter morning and then suddenly I got the news that I have scored an "F" grade in Electronics-2 exam. I sat down on the university's pathway in disappointment. Now the question was that should I give the final paper with this state of mind? If I would have done that, I am sure there would have been another "F" on my transcript. The 2 musketeers jumped in to say that they are planning to skip the final as they couldn't prepare. Thus that day, I paved the way for my only retake exam in my whole undergraduate life. Unluckily for the first time, the retakes were intentionally delayed by the administration and thus were scheduled for mid February in between the Spring 2007 Semester.

It was Monday, February 12, 2007 when I noticed this beauty for the first time. I entered the Seminar Hall at 4:50 p.m. and she was standing there in front of the front sofas with her friend, waiting to be seated for the retake of her final exam. Since I respect her privacy, I wouldn't mention the retake subject and the batch. Luckily, she was allotted seat right in front of me (at 45 degree angle). Though the allotted time for the paper was until 8:00 p.m., I did my max effort till 6:45 p.m. Salman and Basim were already out before 7:00 p.m. considering that only 3 of us were appearing for Prob & Random Processes’ retake ;) . During the whole examination period, this magnetic beauty didn't let me concentrate on the paper. I made myself sit there till 8:00 p.m. and finally handed over the paper to Mr. Aftab Khadim. When I came outside, Basim was already on his way home whereas Salman was standing on the highway cursing me that what the hell I was doing in the paper. As we were moving towards the university gate, I noticed a Black Corolla (not sure) right outside the gate and someone who apparently was father of some student standing at the gate. Then suddenly this angel appeared from the side, talked to that person and sat in the car. As the car was plying away, I was still wondering who this lovely angel was.
