Hi everyone! Good morning and welcome to all who have gathered here today! I’ll try my best to avoid the “Papa Kehte speeches of koi manager ka kaam karega, business mein koi apna naam karega” Its kind of funny that we have got to bid farewell to this college today only to come back in a few days to give our 4th sem exams. But then I guess we have to make do with what we have, and I’m happy that I got a chance to speak to all my friends from college on this occasion. I think that a farewell speech is probably the ONLY speech where students actually listen to the speaker (well I am hoping at least that is the case right now!) Now that I have your undivided attention, let me share a few experiences I had during the past 2 years of my life in SGI. It was a scary feeling when all of us got in this college through the admission rounds at SGI. When I came out of the inner hall with the confirmation slip in my hand I hardly knew anything about the college. And what a decision it was – in return for an MBA seat in an unknown college I got back innumerable friends and loads of good times. First Year Engineering must be THE most memorable year for any of the students out here.
I love the simple word hello
It always rings a joyful bell
But one of the saddest words i know
Is the oft times tearful word farewell.
Some of the jokes are occupational (i.e., only people working with me will understand)…so ignore it and move on. I will really miss this place. You probably think how can somebody miss Tidel Park…it is such a big building and can be seen by the naked eye. But I am honest. I promise. By the way, this farewell speech of mine is available on Bazee.com for Rs 50. Sify Rocks!!
Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you
Until we meet again!
