Was 19.5.15 the Black Day for TIP? #TISFconfessions #wisevoters #wowicouldntbeliveit

This article is a submission by Omer Khan of 1st year. His views about elections. 

I witnessed my first elections at TIP. It was no doubt a thrilling experience.
I would surely congratulate the current panel. But the panel that I supported was ASL.

For me ASL was a complete package, Arsalan Alam has management skills yet experience, Shehryar Shareef, well this guy deserved to win. Not even being a part of TISF he was already working to revive TIAF. He would have surely done it if he would have been given a chance to be a part of TISF. Umer Lodhi, who doesn’t know him for his intelligence in other words he is renowned only for his intelligence. He would have been perfect for the post of FS.

That Moment #TISFelections #aaminahwon

Thie article is written and submitted by Areeba Haroon of TDT 3.
Hearty Congratulations to Aaminah Shahzad for winning TISF elections. 

“Aaminah Shahzad is the new President of TISF!’’ The feeling is beyond explanation and cannot be put into words. Not even having to wait for another moment but to hear just what our ears were dying to. Her victory is not just her’s. It’s a collective victory. And we cannot rejoice it enough. This is History. First time a Girl wins a seat for the TISF Elections and that too of a President. This itself says it all. The change is here. It is surely a proud moment for all of us.  And there is no more need of being afraid, very afraid.

What Happened to Us?

 

TIP offers the same thing 10 other blokes do in the city. We, even within our own skin are not inventive, we have same courses as AIFD or Indus, combined with the fact that we are 50 kilometers away from city doesn’t help at all.

Any student’s wet dream is Indus, at least in the market we are trying to capture. After that we are left with AIFD. Convenient, Affordable, Solid.

But after 4 years…what’s next?!

Soon after graduating, Hafsa Azhar (TMM), pours out her built up nostalgia and also takes out time to prepare the current students for what they could be facing after getting employed.
Enjoy!

 

In my four years of life at TIP and being a so-called an active member of Talking Texture’ 2011, writing for QUACK! hadn’t been in my list of THINGS TO DO. But today, it just clicked to me that why not write something and make myself feel that I still haven’t lost my connection and can be a part of TIP through this approach.

Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?

‘Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?’, Kazim Alam explores this thought on Express Tribune Business Pages by building up on the results of a recent survey highlighting management students’ aversion from venturing into the entrepreneurial realm.

KARACHI: During an interactive session held in connection with the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011, the moderator asked a sizeable group of management students present in the audience if they wanted to be entrepreneurs after graduation.

Hardly 20% replied affirmatively. The rest of them said they would rather get a secure job, preferably at a multinational, which promised a steady income and growth.

Are our business schools turning out good employees while killing the entrepreneurial spirit of potential business leaders of tomorrow?

According to Haris Hamdani – who graduated from a private university in 2009 and now runs a clothing brand for men namely Red Tree – career counselling at the undergraduate level was more about getting a stable job instead of entrepreneurship.

“As such, there was no encouragement to be an entrepreneur. There was not even an entrepreneurs’ society at my university. I’ve heard now they’ve established one,” said Hamdani, who set up his first retail outlet at Dolmen Mall on Tariq Road in July 2010 in partnership with three of his classmates.

This is not the End, it’s only the Beginning

On 29th January, 2012, Textile Institute of Pakistan [TIP] said farewell to yet another vibrant and extremely competent batch of students. It was the Convocation 2012, probably the last time the entire batch crowded the fields on TIP collectively as a single cohesive unit.

The basketball court was utilized to host this grand event, just like it had been so the previous year. A dairy white marquee, a bright glistening sun and a pleasant breeze set the perfect tone for the occasion. The proceedings began, the event being hosted by me, Asad Jafri of AMM2 and Komal Mustafa of TDT2. In synchronization with a classical Sitar tune being played through the speakers, the procession led by the Academic Coordinator Mr. Umair Saeed entered the arena, followed by the graduating students, faculty members, Board of Governors, President TIP Dr. Zubair Bandukda, Chancellor TIP Mr. Arif Hasan and the keynote speaker for the day, Mrs. Noorjehan Bilgirami.
