The lane down my college was a carpet of rainbow,
The girls were exulting, raving and running,
Bemused I stood in the mods of the rendezvous,
The searing joy was exulting and stunning.
The charm broke my lips into a smile,
As I noticed our ‘ladies’ checking tipsy guys getting cunning,
It was then I realized the reason for this euphoria,
For I joined the Rendezvous to call out “HOLD ON GUYS, TARANG IS COMING”
