It was a bright Monday morning. The college campus welcomed her. Nandini stared at the beautiful college building towering against the calm and cool blue sky. But fear and anxiety gripped her mind when she stepped into the campus. Coming from a small village, she was nervous. She belonged to a middle-class family. The sad demise of her father when she was studying in 9th std made her depressed. Her father always wanted her to be an achiever. Her willpower and determination to succeed made her a rank holder getting admission to this prestigious college in the city. Many girls wearing modern dresses walked past her. They were speaking fluently in English. Some of them looked at her and smirked. Nandini was wearing simple clothes and looked tense walking slowly with anxiety. She was under stress and started thinking about her decision of joining this women’s college run by a convent. ‘Will I be a misfit in this famous institution?


I can’t even speak English well. So how could I adjust to this atmosphere? Will I be able to get along with these rich and modern girls in my class?’ She was depressed. It was her first day in college. Then a girl smiled at her. She was a gentle girl wearing simple clothes. She extended her hand and told, “Hi…I am Subhadra”. When Nandini spoke to her, they felt as if they were friends for a long time. Both of them were genuine and like-minded girls. Subhadra and Nandini walked into the classroom hand in hand. They were confident that they will study well and complete the course successfully. After all, it is the talent that matters in success, not the external appearances. So that was a new beginning with new hopes, dreams and aspirations for them.
