Today, its exactly 63 days till I graduate. On May the 16th at 5:00 pm, I will finish my last exam. After that, it will be a different life. I will leave the North-East for ever and head to the south of India. The transition is of mammoth proportions. Starting from the culture to the physical appearance, everything is different. I am thrilled as well as nervous. I am not sure whether I will be able to tolerate this overdose of culture shock.
Recently I visited Tezpur in Assam. This is the place where I grew up. I did my schooling from the local Kendriya Vidyalaya here. So, the memories associated with this place are the most cherished. Tezpur is surrounded by Army barracks on three sides and by the mighty Brhamputra on the other. Spread among these are an array of tea gardens. Tea is the prime export of Assam and one of the largest source of revenue for the state government.
