Abstract: This is an auto-ethnography of the time that I spent at three of the most renowned universities of India and my experiences thereof. Coming from a relatively decayed and deadened atmosphere of my college to a centre for excellence in higher learning filled me with my own set of anxieties and curiosities regarding my future and career path on which I was to embark. The story deals with my personal angst of the alienation that I felt while at DSE despite my best efforts to ‘keep up’ with the ambience that contrasted with my exuberant and carefree topography of JNU where one could be just like the other without putting on a mask. However, this place too was marked with its own coda and which bore a mark till one was associated with campus life. Now that I am no more actively associated with campus life, there are still times when I end up shadow boxing with questions about life and learning.
