Mister Ragging, Rest in peace

Finally, we all heard the strict orders from the Big B; “RAGGING IS OFFICIALLY BANNED IN TIP(full stop)”. The very similar decision was also made last year but ragging was allowed in case if any of the freshmen themselves wanted to be ragged. Thanks to our beloved President, and Academic coordinator for implicating such an ‘Important’ rule and for keeping the honor, respect and confidence of newcomers in a safe place.

When I was a newcomer, I used to be filled with joy, excitement, confidence and was motivated enough to perform well both in my studies and extra curricular activities. The day I joined TIP Continue reading “Mister Ragging, Rest in peace”

TIP Drama Club

Drama Festival

A recent workshop conducted by the School of Dramatic Arts of the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology underlined the need for student dramatics. TIP does have a Drama Club (Society?) that was largely established on student initiative and has had a number of successes. These include winning a Dramatics Competition at IBA in 2004, performing the original “70s Ka Hit Formula” at the LUMS Olympiad in 2006, and even organizes regular Drama Festivals. The Drama Club could do a lot better with increased support from the administration, and possibly a supervisory structure. Continue reading “TIP Drama Club”

Frustrated Society

I often call our society a frustrated society. From a poor rickshaw driver to a middle-class bank worker, everyone seems to be frustrated here. By considering few examples, let me define it to you more clearly. A university student is scheduled to appear in his semester’s final exams next week and his locality has been without electricity for three days. Can he/she perform well in the exams? A young graduate has recently got his job in a multi-national company. His home has been without electricity the whole night and he/she is due to start work for the first time, the very next morning. Can he/she perform well at his/her job? A father is unable to afford the huge fees of a private university. Would his son/daughter be able to become an engineer? Continue reading “Frustrated Society”
