I was having this candid discussion with Sarim the other day about TIP, its Alumni and state of affairs of student body at TIP in general. Both of us had a same opinion about the way the matters of TISF to be left in the hands of students rather than in the hands of the various so called guardians of this forum. I have written on this earlier and i would reiterate the fact that although TIP collects and also contributes(i don’t know if they still do!) the funding for the TISF, but to make it a vibrant and active representation of student body the guardians should leave the affairs in the hands of office bearers. Anyways to come back to the good news that i wanted to share with all readers of Quack is performance of TIP’s team at LUMS YLES. I don’t know if this effort was solely on students own part or TIP also in someway helped them (apart from giving them the right to call themselves a representation from TIP).

I request someone from TIP’s team to share their experience and post the ad which won them this accolade at LUMS YLES.

For the time being, you can read the full story at

Congratulations and keep this spirit alive!

Yank of Elements in Life

Man has always been drawn to the sea but its a unnatural setting for us, A place of great danger.Tides, Currents, Waves, Winds each presenting their own hazards none of which can be ignored, The slightest lapse of judgment can be a mistake you might never recover from but a good sailor doesn’t fight against these elements. A good Sailor works with them using them to its advantage, while others less fortunate might be forever cast a drift often and several pieces. He always comes home safely.

Am I talking to the Wall???

Sarim self taking says: (* looks around and finds it safe*) It’s 5 pm , still got an hour till my office is off.

Shoot, the boss comes out of no where and glares at the Quack online dashboard and then with a “what the hell are you doing” expression asks “ UMmnn …good, is it the most popular Blog of the industry you were telling me about when you joined us, The one where you write and get a lot of response?.

Sarim wet pants says: umm bbaba yeah yeah…exactly…

Boss: Ok… let me have a look..( * sarim stands to give boss his seat and steps on his foot to make it worse*)

Boss grinning: huh…looks like its been ages since anyone has ever bothered to read it, forget the comments…khair….here is a tip… U know we really appreciate our managers to look around and Blog…we love it in fact…but I would prefer if you don’t waste your time on stupid Blogs like these…where no one evens comments…

Sarim Sucks says: Ok Sir…don’t you worry…

You must be thinking how unprincipled I am, Writing on quack in my working hours.

But Wait…

I know I can’t justify this, as another business development project of my company, but you can think of it as a “Corporate Social Responsibility” thing.

Its because I love TIP and I believe Quack Online was the best thing that ever happened to the TIP student body and we lost it…

Its just like you are taking to a Wall!
