On 24th of august, it was firmly established why Rendezvous IIT D is the biggest cultural fest in North India.
It was the third time that KK performed at IIT D and the audience loved, nah adored and lapped up his performance.
For me, the songs just took me a walk down the memory lane. "Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai" when sung by him kind of replayed my engineering days. The nothingness that used to fill my days, the passion with which we ranked the girls in our class, our senior batch, and our junior batch seemed like the most important task. We use to discuss almost everything under the sun except of course studies which was a taboo. Those were the days!!
The songs kept getting better and better. "Tadap tadap ke unplugged" unlocked the door of emotions which I have kept hidden and forgotten all about. This was the song which I use to sing when my girl friend at school left me. I remember singing this song a couple of times later in my life and after some time I just got used to heart break. Standing there however reminded me all about the dark days when I thought living is such a waste.
The night kept getting better and better. "Khuda Jaane from Bachna Ae Haseeno" had all the boys singing in their respective throaty voice for their current lovers, their imaginary lovers and for some to the unrequited love we are so familiar with.
The finest however was "Kal rahe na rahe yaad aayenge yeh pal" a line that aptly captures the emotion. A night of music before we get back to the world of classes, assignments, deadlines, placements. This is one night that I will remember long after it is gone.
For once IIT roared louder than the airplanes flying above us and who knows the loud screams were signs of the time to come. A loud impact that we all endeavor to make once we are out of IIT D campus.
