Finally, we are done with getting our college magazine designed and printed.. Before i even started, it all looked so easy, but as they say not everything that looks easy, really is… This journey of around 1 month from collecting articles and rest of the matter was not as easy as i thought it to be.. Who knew, the most difficult part was yet to come..
This journey of getting our magazines published is indeed a very special one.. Let me tell you i have learnt a lot from this journey of mine with the other committee members.. It would never have been possible without them.. Being one of the seniors i learnt how to command and still never make it look like they are my subordinates.. Respected all the other work they had to give their time to, while still getting things done from them…
[(magazine committee.. Though 3 members are still missing..) Our Principal right in the centre and left backing our committee Dr. Seemi.. We worked as a team and all the credit to how good the magazine looks goes to the whole team..]
At the start i was quite pissed of how things were still pending and some people not working at all.. After all i was never used to working in a team.. It was my very first time. But the best part was to learn to manage still without panicking.. Seeing my juniors work hard made me feel proud.. Them saying, Ayushee let me know if there is any work, was even more pleasant to hear.. Let me tell you how happy i used to get just hearing to all of this.
Every time i used to get tensed about things not working as they were supposed to be, i had them saying, Ayushee chill, we know you’re working too hard, everything will be fine… Days passed and soon came the day of real play.. It was time, to put it all together.. 4 days were left and we had to buck up.. They say, you can never expect growth if its all to easy right.? So i guess we needed to pass the test… So here is how hard this journey was for us.
We reached the place to meet the magazine designer to find out that we had lost all the files from our pendrives .. Out of the four days, we lost one day panicking about what to do next.. Next day we start from scratch trying to retrieve all the data we had, to get things started.. We spent around 3 whole days designing our magazine with a growling stomach and a stressed bladder… Let me tell you controlling our hunger pangs and the natures call for a day was the hardest thing to do sitting in an air conditioned room and still using our brains to decide what goes where..
After around 3 whole days we finally got done with it and the smiles on our faces depicted how destressed we finally were… When we were done the owner of the printing shop stated a statement that caught my attention, he said make sure you do not make any mistakes because people will always be ready to point out at the smallest of mistakes no matter how well you get the other things done.. Though he said that in reference to the magazine content, that statement was a lesson to remember for life..
Il be honest there was a time when i kept saying why did i even choose to be in the team.. I just couldn’t take it.. But the day we finally got done with it, i realised i had finally grown up into a new being.. It was a moment of pride to complete what i had taken responsibility for.. With my other colleagues i learnt how to take decisions and keep myself calm, even when things went haywire.. I learnt to take responsibility of all the mistakes even if it was someone else’s fault in our team.. We worked as a team, caring for each other asking each other, should i get anything for you to eat while coming? to saying, you can stay at my place if its gets too late..
For me i have never ever been out of my house this late, never ever skipped my lunch.. And here we spent around 11-12 hrs from 10am to 10pm for three days designing the magazine skipping our meals returning home to our moms scolding us for the same.. This journey made me do everything i never ever did.. This was indeed an experience for a lifetime i must say..
IT MADE ME GROW AND GET THE BEST OUT OF ME.. Today, I’M PROUD OF MYSELF.. I have finally grown in to a new me.. And once again
Thank you Sancheti Institute College of Physiotherapy, you got out the Leader in me..
