KOCHI: After two days of closure, following the gruesome incident that cost the life of twenty-year-old Abhimanyu, a second-year BSc student, classes began at Maharajas College from Wednesday onwards.

The college council also held a condolence meet in the campus remembering him, teachers and students burst out in emotions.

The campus lacked the enthusiasm and excitement that it always stood for. One will be able to see sad looming faces in the campus corners. "We cannot even believe that we will not be able to see him around in the campus anymore. He always had a helpful mind and always enquired about seeing a sad face in the class," said Arun C, a student at Maharajas College.

Pointing towards the College Union Office, Arun said that, "his whole house is a bit larger than the room of this office. Most of the days he used to stay with us in the hostel, he did not want to trouble his family with more expense. The fate that he underwent is not at all fair, he always hid his inner sorrows and cared for others."

Abhimanyu was a service-oriented person and as the volunteer secretary of the National Service Scheme (NSS), the 'We lost a real service minded person' said Julia Chandra, a lecturer at Maharajas college. Abhimanyu took the initiative to participate in all the social activities, and he put his whole heart in providing them to the society.

"The whole college is shocked by the incident, the campus has become dull lacking the enthusiasm and excitement that it normally has. His classmates were not present for the meet, they are all heartbroken and in severe pain," Julia Chandra said.

Meanwhile, the teachers will organise counseling sessions for his friends and classmates in the Department of Chemistry, who have not recovered from the incident. " His friends and fellow classmates have not yet returned from their homes and they are in severe shock. We have called the former principal and teachers who taught them to talk with the students and help them cope with the situation.

Their practical examinations are going to start from Monday onwards. They may require counseling sessions to help them recover from the pain," Chandra added.
