MAKING A DIFFERENCE :
Its just about two weeks since we saw sparkle in the eyes of a young MADster. A young NCC cadet who had taken part in this year’s republic day parade marching past the President of India. He was excited about repeating it again next year and said he may become the first person to do it twice. There was so much passion in him, but what was more evident was his humbleness. We felt very happy at that moment to just have met a gem like him.
Mubin is no longer with us in this world. He breathed his last trying to save his drowning friend in the waters of Srisailam. He will not be marching past the President of India the next republic day. He will not be in MAD classes. But, we believe that he was the MADdest of us all. A true champion. That is why he was taken away by God to make a bigger difference elsewhere. Good luck mate. We’ll miss you, but we are even more proud of you.
BLINK OF AN EYE :
Recruitment flashes : Without a doubt, he was one of the sure shots of the walk-in not more than 4 weeks ago. We still remember him & Kola marching up & down the hall while portraying his NCC talents as one of his ‘tasks’. We must say we were impressed.
Process Training flashes: Midway through Glo’s never ending presentation during process training, run in this chap (evidently late) & trying to be as inconspicuous about it as possible.
Teacher training flashes: One of the enthu-cutlets we couldn’t have done without during training, he was strong competition for Zo in being the naughtiest kid in class during micro-teaching. We still remember his super loud voice and sharp looks when it was his turn to teach — forcing everyone to listen to him (whether they liked it or not)
The first three things that pop up when we think about him… the spark in his eyes, the open smile & naughtiness lining his every action!
He was truly ONE of KIND! Proud to have known you Mubin!!!
A FINAL SALUTE :
As we see the gulls passing by,
We always forget to say hi.
As each death hits us hard in life,
Do remember to help others in strife.
He may have been with us only for a short while, Mubin.
But for sure, I can say, happy those training days had been.
He brought a spark to our team that weekend,
Always smiling and laughing, indeed a Godsend.
May you rest in peace, wherever you are;
we,mad hyd will always cherish u, be with u
wishing u well, and holding your hand.
