A night-walk in Rome!

I have been told many a times – ‘Once a Stephanian is always a Stephanian. The word Ex-Stephanian does not exist.’ Waiting in Roma Railway Station for Raghav and Jayant (my Stephanian classmates who are studying Nanoscience in Paris) and Rajarshi (another batchmate of ours from Maths department), I had my chance to experience for myself how much alive the Stephanian Spirit and Bonding is within us.

I still remember the train entering the station and the feel of spotting the smiling familiar faces among those numerous strangers. It was as if everything has always been the same, we had Phookun’s class yesterday and this is just another day-out we are having – the one year gap vanished in seconds! We roamed together, enjoyed Italian Gelato, walked through the historic streets of a lovely Rome, hogged on typical Indian food in a Restaurant with old bollywood songs being played in the TV, shared our exotic experiences laughing at the weirdest cultural shocks, got mesmerised by the beauty of the Colosseum, had the SRK-BigB debate in the Spanish Steps, made wishes in the Fontana di Trevi and fondly remembered those days in Stephen’s!!

The best part of the whole tour for me was the night walk that we had in the deserted streets of Rome – this place somehow gets even prettier at night – the perfect beauty!! Here are few pictures clicked on that day –

In front of Fontana Di Trevi - Evening!

Perfect Beauty - my favorite place in Rome!!

On the River Tiber

In front of Colosseum - midnight!

Undoubtedly, this Stephanian Reunion is one of the best memories I have carried from the Roman Chapter of my life. πŸ™‚
