WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! (FOR THE TIME BEING AT LEAST!)

Ahhhhhhhh!

I'm soooooo victory-drunk at the moment,I can't tell you how good it feels!

So.
We have made it through!!
You can't believe it?
WE WON THE SEMI FINAL AGAINST B.B.A TEAM!!!!!!!!
The topic was "Commercialisation of Cultural Arts"
And we were in favour.
Which means we are in the finals pitted against Physics.
Us ( the Arts ) Vs. Them ( the Science ).

We won against all odds.
First of all, not much support from the department.
Just 2 of our tutors, excellent ladies, were helping us with moral courage.
And the Business Administration department had the whole of their dept backing them.
The audience comprised 98% of their supporters.
And our supporters?
Some of our class mates,some of the staff.That was all.
And them?
Their teachers and friends were helping them in all manners.
I repeat, in all manners.
I really feel like bitching about that to the whole world.
But then,what would be the difference btw them and us??

We were completely on our own.
Which makes a world of difference.
We stood alone,fended all arguments,and here we stand-winners! (Until the finals)

I mean, we couldn't believe we won!
we won!
Vinaya had scribbled out the words as the debate dragged on.."we have lost the debate"
And passed it to all of us.She was that much sure we had lost it all.

But the other team, were hanging on to just one point,about how values are lost and only that.
We,on the other hand,had lots of points.

So when the judge panel declared us the clear winners( sans any kind of suspense.Thank you,sir for that.)
We still weren't sure.We thought,ok-now he will say_"but......"

BUT-NOOOOOOOO!
WE ACTUALLY WON IT OUT-AND-OUT!!

HURRAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!

Everything got so emotional.
We were hugging.
And I was blubbing.
Tears of happiness.
Sheesh,I embarrass myself!

So.
Its PARTY TIME GIRLS!!!!!!

WE,THE FEMALE GUNS,HAVE DONE IT!
WE HAVE MADE IT TO THE FINALS!!

Ok,party was low-key, in big-style!
We order teas.
Clink the glasses together,shout cheers,and drink!
( If it hadn't been for the victory,I really really hate tea. But for now,anything will do!)

Next debate?
Bring it on!

Music for the moment-
We are the champions,my friends.
And we'll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions,
No time for losers,
"Cos we are the champions
For the moment!!!!!!!!
-forgive me if the lyrics are wrong,
but frankly my dear,I don't give a damn!

The other song is hindi.I'll give the english translation too!
आज मैं ऊपर
today I'm above
आसमान नीचे
the sky is beneath.
आज मैं आगे
today I'm in front.
ज़माना हैं पीछे!
the world is behind me!!!!!!!
