AN EARLY DEPARTURE NOTE

I don’t like to read other people’s letters, but some how I could not raise my eyes from the beautiful lines that my neighbor in the strategy class was writing. It was a colorful departure note she was writing for one of her friends who will leaving to Haas for her exchange studies. Such exchange studies last for quite some time and by the time the students return to ISB, the regular batch must have left the campus long back.

I could feel a kind of mixed feeling….happy because I will back to work life again…and will out of the MBA grilling….but then a moment later…I could realize how much life will change after we get out of ISB….just two more terms….and we will be out to face the real life…dispersed in different places…away from all the familiar faces.

Sorry S… for reading what you wrote…

Meeting...making friends....departing....thats the way of life...And the fact that you miss these familiar faces is the reason you would have so many beautiful memories to cherish in future....
As you prod along the path to your destiny, you meet different people from different walks of life...and you make newer friends at each junction..and then when you leave them you miss them terribly..only to remember them as fond memories years later...
Id say its better to meet and miss than never having met and never having felt sad on departing at all..
