To Freshies #Freshmen Night’14

Let us begin. This semester the crowd was really down, nothing was happening, the tempo was miserable and just Yawn.

Bang! The freshmen Gala and Sportfest awakened all. Starting with commending the TISF and Sportex who did a really good job in organizing it all. Nothing was left to be desired. The auditorium was lit with disco lights, the basketball court with great lightening and audio system, hostel accommodations and food was given.

The Freshmen Say…

As the most amazing weeks to admire the beauty of TIP came to an end at the campus this semester, the university has become quite serious in terms of studies as the way I see it. The freshmen got along quite well with the campus and some may have got quite far with the others up till now.

In terms of happenings, so far only one cricket tournament has happened. Apart from that, meetings of independent societies like TiES and some other societies like Dramatics Society was held. Only one concern which is that apart from appreciating another society going independent, I would like to correct the newly formed respective president of the society that KINDLY provide valid information to the juniors rather than announcing that TISF (which is unfortunately no more) will have its student body elections soon.

On the good part, the freshmen have been quite supportive (surprisingly) to contribute their views for Quack Online! So far let’s hear what the students has to say:

“Well, here in TIP nothing happened as such so far.
What can I say about this institution? It’s truly beautiful and full of nature which adds more to life. The second amazing part is the faculty which is so cooperative which makes this institute one of the best!
Moving on, I would like to share about the seniors. Seniors are full of life, they guided us from the very first day till now but they don’t know how to RAG. Yeah I know it’s unofficial, but still they did ragging but it was not a big deal. However, it was fun though I did not like it every time.
I would like to add that though it has been too soon to start criticizing on some issues, but the cafeteria needs a lot of work. It is not as good as it could be or maybe not maintained well as I see it.
Hope to enjoy the most of the coming years.”

“My opinion about the first day at TIP was a little boring and quite tiring. Everybody has a boring first day I guess.
What I did the first day was got ragged 100 times gave my intro about thousand times to every seniors I met.  Seniors are quite fun loving and good. We started with our classes the first day that was not really fair …
But in the end had a good experience with all our seniors and the teachers. Hope we have a really good time in the future semester.”

DC fails to establish order…

Not DC, they have failed years ago. I am talking about the Discipline Committee at Textile Institute of Pakistan, which is about to fail. The committee formed on the basis of the same ideology that of Pakistan’s army, when involved in internal affairs, suppress every voice when you have the power whether its right or wrong. I am very grateful to Dr. Zubair Bandukda, former president of Textile Institute of Paksitan, he left a year later I joined TIP. I still remember at our orientation when a student asked him about ragging, he said, “It’s banned here at TIP but we faced it and you have to face it. If it goes beyond the limit you have your choice to make”.

Few days back I heard that a complaint was logged against students and faculty members of the design department that senior students ragged them in presence of faculty and the faculty members were called by the academic coordinator that they fed the freshmen to the seniors to rag them. Where in fact senior students were ragged by the faculty members in front of the first year, that I would say was rather disrespecting them in front of the crowd gathered.

The Super Thug

By Saad Saleem, TS1

Every campus has to have one of these. Raised in Jersey City, Edison or any Indian populated city in America, these guys do their best to replicate the style of a black man. Don’t get me wrong, every brown man wishes he had certain characteristics of a black man. OK that’s a wrong statement. Every brown man wishes he had one characteristic – a black man’s certain possession; everything else regarding a black man he doesn’t give a shit about. For black men, life is a big trade off. You’re blessed with big things but you also got the po-po’s on your bum. Getting back to our point, there are way too many desi guys acting like thugs.

It’s simple to identify super thugs: Continue reading “The Super Thug”

My Views on Ragging

By Waqas Bin Azhar, TMM 2

Ragging is a very old university culture, and it is still swinging with high pace. Most of us have very strange concepts about ragging that it is the interaction among the freshmen with the seniors. This so-called culture is sometimes a lot of fun, but when it goes in extreme, it turns into a HEART-QUAKE for the juniors. As for me Continue reading “My Views on Ragging”
