Yaa while pursuing my Engineering i used to stay in a hostel. Its really feel great when some one stay in hostel. You can learn how to deal with the society. Because at home we have our parents and they are always there with us when ever we are in trouble. But I think if some one have to survive in this hostile world then he or she must have to stay in the hostel once in their life so that they can learn how to deal with problems, different type of people as well as face the challenges.
When you stay in hostel now its all your responsibilities to decide which path is good for you and which one is bad for your future aspects which in my opinion is really matter in one's life.
