You KnoW YOU Are In XAVIERS if....  
YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN ST. XAVIER'S COLLEGE IF...

...your favourite hangout is, strangely enough, some place called a 'foyer'!!!!!!!!!!!

...you have your own 'woods'!!! which actually consists of 3 and ½ trees. And the only animal to be found there is a tabby cat.

...no one mouths the initials of your college for fear of being labelled a downmarket roadside Romeo.(SX)

….when you first joined college you heard a strange rumor that wearing red was banned.

...the coffeeguy actually knows what you will have before you ask him for it.

...The two counters that make most profit are the Coffee and Xerox center.

...India Today was your fave mag last year, but is now an establishment rag???.

...your heartbeat in the months of July and August sounds something like 'Mal-har, Mal-har'!!! (French version reveals that it is Malheure- an established season of heartaches and heartbreaks.)

...you're reading Nietsczhe and 'Archie and Jughead Doubles Digest'---simultaneously.

...the sandwich-guy near the gate keeps you waiting ten minutes for a cheese toast because he's on his mobile phone.???

...your grandparents go misty-eyed at the mention of your college.

...but your parents search your bag every night for any loose pot/tobacco.

...you stay in contact with your teachers with regular emails (if u do) !!!!

...your college friends give you a peace symbol for your birthday.

...but your non-Xavierite friends will substitute your (perfectly valid)
excuse for not attending last night's 'The Bold and the Beautiful' theme party with "Oh well, you're a XAVIERITE"

...you don't catch a movie at any of the six theatres around you because you're too busy having fun in Lit. class, the Mmr ,Scavi.....

...Honours leaves you with very little time for a social-life, except if ur life begins and ends with Xaviers.

...exactly half your seniors are abroad on scholarships/exchange programmes, and the other half are working at the Times of India.!!!

....Ex-Xavierites take ur college magazine and never return it, same goes for departmental journals.

...the person you fear the most is the lady behind the desk at the railway concession office!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Xavier’s, you gave me roots and wings - Lyrics
Hi,
I guess it has been a long time, this comment was made. But do you still have the lyrics and is it possible you can send it to crazy.abt.muzk@gmail.com. It will be so so great if you have the mp3.
Thanks in advance.

Re: lyrics

Re: lyrics
wonder i never imagined people with roots but rather the whole college as a tree.

Re: lyrics
You Gave Me Wings

When I was just out of school
I did believe I had grown up
College Life was so Cool
The World was all mine
Now was the time
Could I learn to fly ?

Reach for the Sky
Let your Light Shine
Like an Eagle,
Let our soul soar high
Now I believe
I can fly if I want to
St. Xavier's - You gave me wings !!!

Things got a little rough
Adolescence had it's problems
But that's was made us tough
Our Lives had begun
Our days in the sun
We had learnt to fly

Well the song was taught by Verona Ma'am to us.. and she has a very beautiful voice,,,, i was in FYJC,, must hav been 7 yrs back then,..
And the bottle breaking thing was too good,.,, everyone in the foyer wud start the claps.. the woods were actually woods back then.. when there was green grass with many trees... and canteen was on the other side with anna's mess on the 1st floor in hostel.. back then his meals costed some 13 Rs that too no limit defined,, i dont think his meals wil be the same now. It was fun when our group of 13- 15 guys used to hit annas mess n mess it up,, miss those times
