It is said that "east or west home is the best". This is true proverb but we cannot deny the importance of a hostel as well. Hostel is a place where the students from outside the city can stay. Usually the boys or the girls that stay in the hostel for studying purpose. They do not stay their for pleasure. There they get proper atmosphere to study. My younger brother Jamil also lives in a hostel.
Jamil came home during the autumn break for about a week and met his friends whom he had not been able to meet during the last 2-3 months as now he was staying in a hostel. He was daily surrounded by the as they were also equally keen to learn from them about his new experiences at the college as well as the pay field.
One day one of his friends expressed a wish to be in a hostel. Whereupon Jamil had to remark that he was not right in wishing for the Hostel life and that their home life was far better than the hostel life of big cities. He had various points in support of his belief. These are some of the important arguments put forward by him.
Early in the morning when one gets up from the bed one finds either father or mother or some brother sister or other near and dear one in a home. While in the hostel it is the same room mate or a bearer carrying a tray with cups full of cold tea being served while on is in bed. You feel like greeting your parents or others while in a hostel you are terribly annoyed with the servants disturbing your sleep so early.
There either for cleaning sweeping or for your meals you have to struggle a lot as no one appears to be the least bothered about you or your other friends. There every thing is so stereo typed.
In the evening also you generally do not get your hot cup of milk coffee or tea or you have to remind the servant day in and day out for your share of meals.
One misses the home life most in a hostel especially on the eve of festivals like Eid-Milad-ul-Nabi and Shab-i-Barat as it is not always possible to go home during every vacation big or small. The friends and relatives are in the hostel life missed the most.
Whether it is meals or sleep games or study cleanliness or comfort home life is better than hostel life.
