You decide to look her up as she is turning 25 to renew the bond to dwell on those old memories you turn the same old bend on the road (check post) and you gasp. She is fashionable ,she has a new dress(The Beautiful Verdant campus).Her familiar majestic face smiles on you fondly(Robert Koch Bhavan).Her body(John McCormack Centre) seems to have put on some weight (Alfonsa ,Goretti and Gonsla Garcia blocks).She has a new hairstyle( The new C Block).She is more knowledgeable l(Zablocki Learning centre ) and has a new taste for food(new canteen) You catch her eye and you heave a sigh of relief—she remembers you..You engage her in conversation and realise like you have grown over the years she has too grown in her own way. She has a couple of grey hairs which she laughs off (old temporal lobe problems ) She is really busy these days (OPD,casualty wards etc).As you stroll along you meet personalities from the past people who have walked the same path as you have, but who have come back to be with her on her winding journey. She has sights set on lofty heights however winding or arduous the way may be.
It is time and you leave with a small prayer for her on her lips. May no challenge be unsurpassable for her may she succeed in her every Endeavour.
A vision appears your prayers answered. You see her at 50 a maiden in full bloom. You see the crystallization of her noble ideals in the multitude that flock to her for comfort and healing. And ministering to those multitudes you see faces from the past changed with time but still faces you know. Gradually a realization sets in that whatever you are, be in the greatest of cities in the centre of the most advanced technology or the remotest village, she will always be a part of you and you whisper silently “Johns I love you”
