past while waiting for our future. That is nostalgia.
“We all grow up and want to go to future but there is
always an urge to return to the good old days. As a
student, one dream about being a professional sooner and
again when he becomes a professional, misses being a
student. Knowing and understanding this feeling, we
initiated to organize the event”. The event ended over a
