Well it’s been almost a month and a half since I heard these views about TIP, and I was shocked to hear them by people who didn’t know the reality. But then I tried to find out whether the views shared by people in general about TIP were true or not. I heard people saying that our university provided the best opportunities for individuals to show off the animal within them, and get involved in all kinds of cheap and vulgar activities.
These opinions made me sad and I was embarassed to know that the reality wasn’t that different from the words used by people to describe TIPians at large. Institutions and universities are there to make people realize their potential. Doubtless I can say that TIP students are brilliant when it comes to confidence. But what importance does such confidence have when we people cannot unite under one banner of being students of TIP, rather than discriminating against each other on the basis of being in Textile Science, Management or Design. We need to realize that education is not only what we learn from books, rather it is also in the way we carry ourselves.
