My first day at college – a memory

I was still wearing plaits and carrying a school bag when I entered the portals of the college where I knew there would be strangers. The moment I entered the gate there were a bunch of girls obviously seniors who started ragging me. They asked me if there was any mail for them looking at my school bag.

I got home and the first thing I did was that I discarded that bag changed my hair style  and started carrying books in my hand although it was not easy as I had to travel by bus to get to my college.

The ragging went on for a few days. There was a day kept for newcomers to introduce themselves and we had to perform too. 4 of us got together and sang a song immediately there was a chorus from the seniors ‘Oh my what a silly song…………..’

But when it was my turn to be a senior I realised how fun filled it was to rag others!! Ragging is now banned as the modern generation does not know to what limits it can go.

  1. I heard some ragging stories in local universities, but I have not encounter any as I went to private college. I did enjoy my college days and made good friends there as well. I always think I am fortunate to meet good friends everywhere I went. 🙂

  2. I did not immediately go to college after graduating from high school because I need to work. So, when I entered college, I am a couple of years older than my classmates. Besides, I entered a Catholic School so I did not experience being ragged.

  3. I have never ragged anybody. Maybr in primary school during my last year. I was a bit naughty until my name was entered in a black book. The effects of peer pressure.
    I’m usually against that at where I am teaching. Whenever a new student joins where I teach, I tell the whole class to introduce their names and where they come from.
