Hostel life is a free and sacred life. It is very conducive to living. The atmosphere is quite congenial for studies and suitable for the qualities of domestic life like co-operation, fellow-feeling and self-managing affairs. If a student takes it seriously, he can develop all qualities of a good citizen.
A student who lives in a hostel is free from ordinary anxieties and cares. He can concentrate his mind fully on his studies. Besides, he can take part in social activities and can learn many virtues from his senior students.
He can also increase his knowledge and remove his weaknesses. Thus, he becomes mannerly, polished and cultured. Shyness fades always lie learns to speak fluently and express his ideas. It is because he mixes up with different types of students. He learns how to behave in society. He acquires good manners and in future becomes a disciplined man and good citizen.
Life in a hostel is full of responsibilities. You are free from the sharp eye of your parents and elders but here you are to use your own intellect. You can fall an easy prey to evil ways, bad company, drugs, smoking, wastage of time and what not. This the real test of your true self. You can make or mar your career. A hostel accommodates both the good and bad students. It gives an opportunity to a good student to take the benefit of everything, all facilities at hand, good teachers, good library, laboratory. You have not to worry about my thing except your studies. If you are able to make a good image of yourself, the evil will itself fly from you. You can shine like a diamond. But if you show yourself down, give way to evil ways, they will go on closing their grip on you and ultimately it will be difficult for you to get freed.
Hostel life is a memorable period of one’s whole life. It gives us lifelong friends and memories. It makes you self confident and responsible. It takes you out of your parental care and shows you the reality of life you tend to learn by your own mistakes. Your seniors are your best guides. You learn to respect them and try to go on their footsteps.
