পৃথিবীতে সবটাই আপেক্ষিক,সবই মায়ার খেলা;আর প্রতিটা মানুষই সম্পর্কের এই মায়াবী জালে আবদ্ধ|তবুও মাঝে মাঝে কোনো এক সত্ত্বা এই সমস্ত জাল ছিন্ন করে মুক্তির বাতাসের সন্ধান করে|তবে এই কী সেই 'আমি'?প্রশ্নটা বারবার বিড়ম্বিত করে তোলে আমাকে|কিন্তু যে চিরস্থায়ীত্বের সংজ্ঞা এই 'আমি' এর সাথে জড়িত,তার বাস্তবতা তবে কোথায় ? আপেক্ষিকতাবাদ আর স্থায়ীত্বের মিলন কী আদেও সম্ভব!!
Chapter 46: 'The PPT - Pre Placement Talk'
Packing the bags was a bit easy rather than packing the emotions.
The only thing that was same, when we took first step towards the college and we took our last step outside the College was "The Tears in Eyes".
When we were enrolled in college in first year, we had tears as we were departed from our house for the very first time, and that day I saw tears in senior's eyes as they were departed again from their home, their 4 year old family.
We too reached station but we were silent as we knew that we too have to face it after an year.
I was a bit more worried because of fear of loosing Saanjh.
The days passed and the time came when we had to return back.
Three years passed but Saanjh yet unable to take a stand against her parent's decision, she too was worried about our relationship.
But wait, really she was worried?
We reached our new home again and were busy in Class, Assignments, Presentations, Project Reports and Placement preparations.
A month or two passed in all those and one day it was announced in classes that Dean & Director wanted to meet us there in main auditorium for something called as PPT.
We were familiar with the term PPT as .ppt extension of PowerPoint slide presentation but that one was different as we were told about, its Pre-Placement Talk, for which they wanted to clear our doubts.
It was raining that day, we read the notice about PPT and were sitting in class, day scholars were absent so only Hostellers were present, no faculty member.
All of sudden, don't know what happened.
Saanjh, who was sitting beside me, kissed me.
"Hey, Everyone is present n here", Said while slightly pushing her.
But she hold my hand and from the other hand she pulled my head leaning a bit towards her and she leaned too.
She kissed for atleast 5-6 minutes. It felt good but the sudden reason was unknown.
Next day, we were ready in our college dress, well maintained, tie knots were at apt position unlike other days, shirts were in, and we moved to auditorium to hear the final words before our placement.
They want to tell us about the preparations, about the etiquettes, about the dressing sense, about the exam pattern, about the interview, in total they want to describe the Placement Procedures.
We grabbed our seats, the Dean welcomed us with a light welcome speech.
Then our director took the charge and he started with rhe placement procedures and exams.
He tried to clear every possible doubt a student have then asked if we yet had any confusion or question regarding placement.
They demonstrated us the behaviour and etiquettes one should have inside the interview room.
When everything was over, the Dean again was the centre of attraction and his words shocked us.
He told us that because of Recession, most of the companies would not recruiting that year and instead of selecting candidates, companies were laying off their employees and after listening all those words a ruck of tension was seen on our faces.
He continued and gave us sigh of relief that some how college management managed to invite 2-3 companies there in our campus,"So my childs, I want to see each and everyone of you placed before your final exams.
It's the time to come out of your comfort zone, its the fight of Survival of the fittest, one who survive through all the rounds will be selected.
So press the accelerator at its max, shift the gear to last, increase the speed, finish line is there in front of you, thus try to cross the line before everyone.
It's upto you, whether take a slow walk or run along with the time, but as I know its time to give your full, to play your final manoeuvre and I wish to see placement letter in everyone's hand.
You guys have one month left, let's start the game".
We were overwhelmed by his words and after that day everyone was busy in preparing and clearing doubts regarding written exam.
