As you all must have read my earlier post, just hours before the Big Reunion day of SJS 1992 batch, (incase you missed the earlier post then here it is Part 1. ) I am pretty charged up; the excitement, the hangover, all in all the ‘masti’; and wanted to pen down my feelings as soon as the party was over, but being an organizer I reached home late, music still playing in my mind :).
As i sit down to write I am unable to describe the joy I experienced and hence maybe would not be able to duplicate the same.
In our first meeting of “Organizers of SJS reunion” we hit upon the theme for the party “Filmfare Award Nite”. So from here we started our planning for the party. We decided to call the party nite as “Grand Masti Nite” and decided to hold an award ceremony which we said “Grand Nautanki Awards”. We created an online survey and sent it across to everyone to fill it. The questions were based on the daily conversations we used to have on whatsapp. Accordingly we organized the gifts for the winners.
So with everything in place; venue, DJ, food, awards and all of us, the D day finally arrived. The excitement of meeting everyone in me was so high that yesterday I did not feel like having my lunch nor my weekend afternoon siesta, I was just counting the hours left for the party.
The organizers reached earlier to check whether everything was in place and we planned out on how & where we would be presenting the awards. I appreciate all friends arrived on time, fighting all odds of traffic jam which is always the reason of reaching late and in about an half hour we had a full house.
We started with the Welcome speech followed by the awards. All this we had wanted done within 45 mins and yes we managed to do it within time. The closing note was very short and sweet and it was time to hit the dance floor. Lights went off and the DJ got the party started. Disco lights all around us we danced with our whole heartedly to the beats of the DJ. The new dance numbers along with the remix of late 80’s made our feet move & body swing and we were all dancing with each other. Even the spouses enjoyed a lot and all of them were a great support in making this night successful!
How can I forget, the booze on the rocks which helped us keep our energy level high and danced continuously till the DJ got tired. For almost 3 hours we had some awesome remixes played and we all danced like Sashi, Rishi, Mithun, Amitabh … to Salman and Shahrukh too.
All in all I had a great reunion with old friends(some forgotten due to my dying old brain cells and some with whom I had lost touch in the last couple decades). It was real fun meeting old buddies from School and that too after so many years. I am sure this reunion memory will always stay in my mind and I will cherish it forever.
