A farewell party invitation!

This was written during my M.A. I found it in my archives yesterday and thought it would be nice to stick it in the cyberspace.

It was a farewell invitation for the senior batch of M.A. Political Science in my university, JNU.

This day had to come
Because all good things must pass!

So, we the second semester class of CPS
Invite the fourth semester class:
To let their hair down
To hang loose
To forget the rest of the world —
Forget Plato, forget Mill
Forget Rousseau, who is Tocqueville?
Forget Valerian, forget Hasan
Forget Shefali, who is Mahajan?!
What’s an A+, what’s a presentation?!
Forget the tension, the tribulation.

And after such brainwash
Come en masse
To the gathering this evening
To enjoy, indulge, dance and sing
To add to life that extra zing!
Come, unwind today…
O scholars of political science!
Elsewhere too lie goldmines.
Studies and exams are all fine
But tonight let’s enjoy, dance and dine.

So, at the farewell tonight
Let us party, make moments light
Let us enjoy, let us unite.

(And may you achieve what you want in life:
a bright career, success, your man or your wife!)
