This Post wont take much of your time so do read it full..I was doing watching this sitcom on TV that was based on the idea of Hostel Life and how things are back In University Life.That brought out some really funny memories,one of them so strong that I had to get here to write that.
That was my first year of LLB In Punjab University,Lahore.We had just arrived in Hostels and after those hectic initial days of how you get to know people there,try to talk to them,choose your friends,go to the class for the first time,make a list of books and notes and then go to markets.New Place,new rules,new everything and there I found myself standing in between all this, A girl from far off Area,A girl who dint know anything about big places,Who could not speak English,Who did not know how to put Lipstick on.Who did not even do her Eye-brows and whose dressing sense was enough to tell where she came from.
I still remember the first day in Hostel.My father and Mother drove me to Lahore all the way from The Lower Punjab.That was some 12 hours Driving.I had fallen seriously sick a few days back and I still was not feeling well.My parents were worried like hell about me.My Father did the Documentation and all and they stayed with me all day long.Then the moment came when they had to leave.I can still remember the moment and it send a shiver down my spines every time.My throat was blocked,I could hardly speak.I stood there with tears in my eyes watching my parents going away,Then i looked around and I felt like running behind them.Faces and Faces every where and not a single face that was familiar to me.I sat in a corner,kept sitting there unless somebody came and asked me to go for my dinner.I can never forget the feeling,I wanted to talk to the people around me and i was too scared to do that and the worst part was when Any of them tried to talk to me, I couldn't speak back.I had a Blocked throat remember!
Khair That time passed soon,I made some great friends.College was started.It was Ramadan just after a week that we started going to College and it felt horrible.No Mom-Made sehri and No Yummy Atari.That Ramadan had no taste.No time for Ibadit.We hardly managed our Prayers and felt so bad about it.
So it was Friday that day,We got back from College as tired as we used to be everyday and were about to crash on our beds when somebody knocked on our doors.it was some senior girl from the other wing and she told us that they had arranged Salwat ul Tasbeeh (A special kind of prayers that is offered in general too but In Particular in Ramadan) Now all my Room-Mates had crashed already and refused to go while I,still standing in the door, told her I will come.Now it was not a good idea I knew even then.As I was tired and sleepy but then I thought I will be fine when I will wash my face off.
I went downstairs in the prayer room and after the Zuhar Prayers,Salwat ul Tasbeeh was started.The prayer room was full.I was focusing on the prayer and I thought I did well until something happened.In salwat ul tasbeeh you stand and you bent and you go in Sajdah for long periods of time then usual..what I remember was that I went for first sajdah just fine but it was second Sajdah that changed my whole prayers.I put my head in Sajdah,was saying my prayers and then all of a sudden everything went blank.I have no idea for how long that blankness Prevailed,all I know is I just opened my eyes and I was in Sajdah..I tried to think where I was and then I tried to see my surrounding without changing my position and I found myself alone there..I mean no one was there..Then I focused hard and I saw people standing.and i was like SHOOT ME!! .ummm yes Ladies and gentlemen, I had Dozed off right in middle of those Prayers and God knows for how long! the rest of the prayer room was standing in Qiyyam while I was the only one In sajdah! I stayed there for like a bit while thinking WHAT TO DO..WHAT TO DO..WHAT TO DO..!Then I told meself..Bhag Lay baita nai tou bohat buri honi hai!;p I stood up slowly and walked out of the room before the crowd is done with their prayers and want to know who that Sleeping Girl was!
I got back in room,landed on my bed,slept for like 3 hours.We all woke up in the evening and I just wanted to forget the incident,had no plans to tell that to anyone.But Guess what ! My roomies heard somebody in the mess talking about HOW A GIRL DOZED OFF IN SAJADAH IN PRAYER ROOM today and they came to me laughing their heads off and said WE KNOW IT WAS YOU! Yeah LOL..FRIENDS!!!
