I love you TIP…..!!

There are certain experiences in life which you can never forget and my stay at Textile Institute of Pakistan was one of them. As I recall my memory, I can still remember my first day at TIP which was 28th August 2006 and now I have been through my last day at TIP as well which was 26th May 2010. A journey of four years. Four years of learning. Four years of exciting experiences. Four years of being with my friends. Four years of all the great incidents and event of which we were a part of. Four years of studies. Four years of this nostalgic campus. These four years are not just memorable, these years have made me a real person. A more mature and open person. Yes, I can feel the change in my self. I was a kid and Textile Institute of Pakistan has grown me up. I was nowhere and TIP gave me the direction. I openly confess here that I really appreciate and love this place which we all know with the name of TIP.

I would like to briefly cover each and every thing which will always keep reminding me about my association with TIP and which a part of this great learning environment is. Continue reading “I love you TIP…..!!”

Josh Sahab kay Mehmaan-A Review

15th April 2009 was witnessed as a day when TISF slot turned into an entertaining session. “Josh Sahab kay Mehmaan” was a joint project of Literary society and Drama society. The whole project and idea was proposed and headed by Syed Qamar Zaidi where the costumes were arranged by members from dramatics society. Original theme was that “Josh Maleeh Abadi” (renowned Urdu poet) invites various prominent poets of their times including Mirza Ghalib, Allama Iqbal, Bahadur Shah Zafar and Zia-ul-Haq Qasmi in an informal gathering. All of these characters were performed by students of TIP except that of Josh which was performed by Qamar Zaidi.

The first episode of the project started with the entrance of “Josh Sahab” (who was the mezbaan) followed by the entries of Zia-ul-Haq Qasmi, Allama Iqbal, Ghalib and Bahadur Shah Zafar. Casual gathering started when all of the poets started chatting; not in normal sentences but in poetic verses. The verses selected were actually parodies of the respective poets written by Sarfraz Shahid, Zia-ul-Haq Qasmi and Qamar Zaidi himself. The most entertaining part of the session was when Mirza Ghalib started putting taunts on his fellow poets where Zia-ul-Haq Qasmi followed him. Continue reading “Josh Sahab kay Mehmaan-A Review”
