Back to the campus this semester, the students noticed Eqbal Ahmed and his remarkable campus that he started a bit clearer than before. A moderate buzz seemed to spread around as to notice the reason of such open and free view of the brown textured walls of the campus especially outside the student center that weren’t quite visible before. It wasn’t hard to mark the differences as some of the Trees went missing.
TIP witnessed a great day of this leap year on a date we wait for four years to come. Apart from its importance, one of the most successful sessions of TIP Talk were held and organized by team TIES which had a turnout of about 150 students along with some dispersed faculty in the lecture theatre to control the discipline. Obviously, many didn’t know about the speaker they were about to listen and be surprised and inspired from.
Another session of TIP Talk was held in the past week which was much more humor oriented for the students rather than informative. A group of people representing the firm GIA, roamed around the auditorium and spoke on various topics in which their firm holds excellence. Not much of us knew about them and the contribution they did for our Apparel and Fashion Department when it was being set up.

Another step towards the betterment of the students, another day at the auditorium in the presence of a multi-talented, diverse and inspiring speaker who on one hand is well renowned for his vocals in the classical genre and on the other hand, a marketing executive and the founder of a remarkable marketing firm.
The recognized ghazal singer Salman Alvi visited TIP and shared with us his diverse experience and knowledge regarding the pursuit of happiness that everybody seem to be participating in, especially in professional life. Along with some conventional inspiring content shown in his signature way, he also shared with us his passion of music and its importance along with some real life chemistry that relates to music being a remedy to a mature mind.
Following a brief introduction given by his former MBA classmate Mr. Fariq Mukhtar, Mr. Alvi was handed over the rostrum to continue with the session. He presented his mind provoking series of questions regarding the barriers of change and innovation referred by him as “E-Novation” followed by some relevant poetic phrases regarding the subject. This was succeeded by the urge of change with respect to the current time and the incoming future. Continue reading “Salman Alvi visits TIP”
