Issues, resolving issues and the issues with resolving issues…

The management is making an effort to improve things. Notice that the course outlines are a lot more detailed and students have atleast been given an overview of the course content if not actually handed the course outlines. The computer lab is organized and fully functional for a change.

To improve things, the management needs cooperation from faculty, staff as well as the students. Each of us needs to do our share.

And more issues

There still are still problems though, the hostel issue being one of them. The president has assured that Karachi residents will be allowed to stay once maintenance is complete. How long that will take is uncertain.

I accepted admission at TIP after confirming if accommodation would be available and have been living on campus since the second week of joining TIP in September 2003. Prohibiting us from moving in for any reason is morally unjust. Any maintenance issues should have been sorted out during the three months that the hostels were empty and rooms provided as they have been for the past three years; more, rather.

It is interesting to note that the statements from the warden and administration seem to be evolving. From, there’s no accommodation available for “CITY WALAY,” to there’s no accommodation available at the moment. And then, “There’s no accommodation available at the moment, Zubair Saab will probably allow you people to stay after a month,” as stated by the warden on August 30, ’06.

A MONTH!!! That’s one quarter of a semester. I can’t possibly keep up with all this traveling for that long. I have to walk to Kheban-e-Ittehad from Sunset club and back everyday. Not to mention all my books are packed in the dorms, I stacked them up neatly and packed them in a plastic bag which was provided by the warden and safely put them in the store so that I could come and retrieve them today. I can go on state a thousand more reasons.

For me the hostel is not a makeshift shelter. It has been my home for the past three years. Please don’t keep me out of my home.

  1. i agree with Aasim. I have also been in the hostel since first semester and suddenly evicting us like this without even givin us a reason is unfair. When i was informed that my room had been given to a freshman, i actually felt outrage. That room has been my home for the past three years All my stuff is still there even my paints and other materials. I dont even like the idea of having another person sleeping in my bed. I thought it would be hard when i would have to leave what was like a home for 4 years at the end of this year but to be thrown out uncereminously like this in our last year is just not right.

  2. The computer lab is organized and fully functional for a change.

    Is it? 😀
    Not mentioning which computer lab in Karachi is organized and fully functional was a wise thing, aasim! 😛
