Soon the last year of post-graduation will commence or should I say last year of education which will mark the end of college life as well! 🙁 This sure means a beginning of New phase of life but it does saddens the heart that these fun days won’t come back. As the last year starts, it will launch the series of moments and events that will be tagged with the prefix-last: the last semester,last exam, last bunk, last birthday celebration at hostel, last movie together, last Maggi and the list in unending as these last moments will be made special to be etched into our memories forever.
Let these moments not steal the glory due to Mr M today. Today is his day. I had bid him goodbye already but this farewell was long due. It was officially my last mathematics exam in the semester that went by, that means I would never see Mr Mathematics ever again. Yes, Mr Mathematics is my Mr M.
I was first introduced to Mr M when my mom decided that I was big enough to learn the numbers. Official introduction came much later when I joined school and ever since then I have been friends with him. i know most of you might be shaking your heads in denial but it was when Mr M seemed as a monster to most of the children, I was already friends with him. He was my most reliable refuge especially when I was upset or angry. Solving Mr M’s problems I would forget my own and hence my mood would brighten up.
In later schooling days, he became my first love undoubtedly. When most of the girls disliked (even hated) him for his complex and hard to understand nature, I was always seen spending time with him in my spare moments. As said, he was my first love therefore I was blindly loyal to him helping him to find his treasured “x”! Usually people said that Mr M was mainly popular among boys, but being an exception to every rule since childhood I decided to prove them wrong and made him my best buddy.
Before I left school and entered graduation I had already met the family of Mr M. I never knew Mr M had such a large family: Mr Statistics, Mr Probability, Ms Algebra, Mr Calculus, just to name a few. As I slowly came to know them I found them equally interesting. Her sister, Ms Algebra was always my favorite. Mr Calculus seemed to be tough at first but life became easy once I knew him well. Mr Probability always confused me and situation was quite the same with Mrs Trigonometry. But on the whole, Mr M and family was a complete package.
As you know teenage love doesn’t always survive for long, same happened with Mr M. Mr M lost his charm before I knew it and the love of Arts, crafts and writing took over. But as I finally bid an official goodbye to Mr M, I realized how fond I was of Mr M. I know that he will find ways to keep in touch with me over and over again throughout my life. But the thought of having him or his family no more by my side as always it used to be, surely gives me heartache. Looking back I realize how empty my life would have been without him.
Bid Adieu, My beloved Mr M. You will be always missed.
