Well, so this is the concluding post. Let's recapture the key events of the first day of Tara in her college. She is feeling as if she has entered in a huge sea all of a sudden and this is a major change in her life. Till her school it was just like a small pond with everything so rigid and fixed.

It was an open atmosphere in the canteen. The get together was till the lunch time after which first two classes of the session were there. There was enough time for that. The stage was open for anybody and everybody. Snacks and drinks were going on. For Tara it was a good opportunity to get acquainted with her classmates, professors, and seniors. It was quite a congenial environment. While she was talking to Dr. Saraswati she found that the professor is as passionate about music and books as Tara. That created a strong bonding between the two. And then all of a sudden Professor pushed her gently towards the stage - "Let's sing, come." "Sure, mam but which song?", Tara asked her. "Oh, come on, any classical will do. We can decide on the stage itself." 
We both were there on the stage. "Roshan, please come to the stage immediately with your keyboard and my tabla set. Your services are required SOS." Roshan was there within a few seconds. For the first 5 minutes, Dr. Saraswati and Roshan had a jugalbandi session. That created a heavenly atmosphere in the canteen. Every moment was as if had frozen for a while except the music that was floating in the air moving from ears to ears binding heart to heart. After that magical spell, Dr. Saraswati told Roshan to set his keyboard for - Piya Tose Naina Laage Re. She confirmed from me if I was comfortable singing that with her. I was. We started. Our vocals gelled quite well. On top of that tabla and keyboard made it excellent.

It was a standing ovation from all around in the canteen. The lunch was about to start. Dr. Saraswati introduced me with Roshan before she left us to join her colleagues. About Roshan, I got to know he was in second year of Biotechnology. He had an aim of going for some medical research later. His father was working with Indian Navy as a very high rank. He was a marine engineer. His mother was a surgeon with Indian Army. Roshan was the only child of his parents. 
Gradually, we developed a great friendship during college days. Participating in college festivals was regular for both of us and we won many awards in music. After college, we both joined our respective streams in different colleges at different locations. Finally, we got married.
