Lab Rats

As freshers, We entered office, scared and new.
Sir took us to his window and showed us the view.
.
“You’ve signed up for this.” He said with pride.
Handing us over, to be tested and tried.
.
‘Lab rats’ we were, the first batch of TOSA.
Spent three semesters trying to take part in NASA.
.
Together with juniors, a havoc we created.
Breaking dress codes, timings and everything related.
.
“We won’t wear Kurtas, we won’t wear shoes.
We aren’t engineers, we draft till we snooze.”
.
“We won’t get permission, let’s surprise them instead.”
Building a brick wall in the middle of our class, we said.
.
“We went to take prints and got stuck at Silk board.”
We pleaded on reaching class after doors were closed.
.
The excuses we made up, sound silly today.
Dear juniors, you have it now, the easier way.
.
But we must say, we’re grateful for the many faculty.
Who’ve contributed to building this TOSA family.
.
