Have never stayed in a hostel ever, nor in college as well,..
did my studies all through, as a day scholar, from home itself..!!
But used to listen, still now hear, lots of hostel experiences,..
from friends and acquaintances, about their life in their hostels..!!
How they enjoyed their daily life, away from family, along with friends,..
how they learnt, how to deal, alone in life, from hostel life..!!
Everytime I listen to them, I miss, I dream, of enjoying life, staying in a hostel,..
but as of now, there’s no scope left, other than an old age home, for my wish fulfillment..!!
So, acquiring the courage, one day, very earnestly, I pleaded my son,..
that, once I’m old, not to worry, but to drop me in a good old age home..!!
Neither with any bitter feelings, nor any grudges or complaints within, did I request,..
to let me, enjoy my life, my way, for the first time in life, guardian less..!!
Chatting, all of us, with bifocals, with various types of people, mostly with dentures,..
some with hearing aids, some with walking sticks or with pace makers..!!
Where, our problems, same, complaints, the same, sharing the same doctors,..
to feel young, free and active, whilst feeling each other’s pain, quite a bit better..!!
Staying within a family of young people around, may make one feel more sick and old,..
but staying among the same age group, may make one feel, quite a bit bold..!!
This, being the crazy way to stay less lonely, in a crowd of same frame of people,..
at least, won’t stay deprived anymore, of fulfilling my dream of living in a hostel..!!
