Hostel life @ Jaipuria – My Second Home
“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.” Hi, I am Aman, a proud Jaipurian, a hosteller, here to tell you about Hostel life at Jaipuria Lucknow – one of the best B-schools in India.
A college hostel is a place where strangers become friends and friends become family. Away from home, away from our family, we support each other in all the ups and down.
As Anubhav Singh Bassi (comedian) rightly said, “everyone should experience hostel life at least once in their life.” he said this because every day in our hostel is not less than a carnival not only because we all behave like clowns but also because whatever we do, we do together and that’s how we turn even the regular things into a full-fledged party. The dinner table becomes a laughter challenge, the bathrooms become a water park, and on cricket day our hall turns into a cricket stadium.
If you are missing your father then just wait till your birthday comes. Birthday bombs of your friends will make you remember “Papa ki maar”. Birthdays in the hostel are very special and almost all the hostel will come to your room to sing happy birthday to you. Obviously, they want a treat after that so keeping your pockets full is highly advisable. Lol!!!
A day in the hostel of one of the top MBA colleges is a mix of many things. You will find every kind of personality here. There are people who are complete introverts and you will find some who will not stop talking. There will be people who are creative and some who are crazy, But one thing is common among all the people everyone has a good heart and everyone will support you in every possible way. These are some of the brightest minds, budding managers, and leaders in the making and the amazing experience of diversity at the hostel makes me believe that indeed Jaipuria Institute of Management is one of the best MBA colleges in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.
Although you will be allotted a separate room for yourself trust me your room is never only your room people are going to come to your name at any time no matter if it’s midnight or 4 am in the morning. And don’t get surprised if you become a guest in your own room.
Sometimes you will feel like Bear Grylls sneaking into someone else’s room in the search of “Ghar ka khana” which is the biggest luxury you can have in a hostel. Haha, something almost every hosteller can relate to and must have experienced in their hostel life.
And if you really want to experience the wilderness then just wait for Holi to come and you will see everyone’s inner beast coming out.
The most fun part is when the exams come around. At-home exams are a tragedy but, in a hostel, this tragedy will become comedy in no time. You all will gather for group study and when did that group study will become a jamming session you will not able to understand.
Overall, it is going to be a roller coaster ride where you will laugh, you will cry, will learn, and ultimately evolve with the bright minds around you. There are going to be good days there are going to be bad days. Many ups and downs will come you will go through a lot but one thing is sure whatever you will face you will not face it alone and the hostel days and memories you will create here to cherish for your entire life and the friends you will make here are going to be with you for the rest of your life.
