â€œYaar! Is baaar ki TISF nay to kuch bhi nahin kyaâ€¦..bas aik do events karayen haiâ€
The current government was elected in a hope that this time students will have some good events. TISF 2007-08 actually came up with very few events as compared to the last one, while students keep blaming and criticizing TISF for not arranging large number of events. However, if we look at the broader picture, TISF has done little but has done it with absolute quality â€“ evident in the shape of Freshman Gala, Carnival, and Bake Sale.
TISF is primarily a student body, hence its work not only includes events but it should also provide and invest in various student facilities as well. This time, we have seen a lot of things like that also which no doubt are acts to be applauded.
Music is often called â€˜food for the soulâ€™, and TIPians, being one of the youngstersâ€™ groups, love dancing to the beat and tempo.TIPâ€™s official underground band â€˜Hijabâ€™ had given so much to TIP Music Society â€“ by performing at different inter university forums. Sadly, after the disintegration of â€˜Hijabâ€™ , it was looking as if no one could actually take over that society. But you never know! A group of new music freaks stepped in and started supporting the Music Society. Some of those popular names include Waqas Aman, Sarim Mehmood, Sajjad, Babar and Haziq. TISF on its part, helped the society in forming the first ever proper music room, equipped with all the necessary instruments. Moreover, free of cost music classes were arranged for the very first time and all that could never have been possible without the moral and financial support of the studentsâ€™ forum.
Apart from music, upcoming mill managers, designers, buying house owners need a healthy life and for that they need a proper gym in their university as well. TISF â€“ again playing the critical role â€“ invested to maintain a proper exercise gym, equipped with the latest machinery.
This step is surely a point to applause and support the TISF for its keen interest in these issues as well.
Having played its own part, TISF has supported individual groups for their respective events. How can we forget the series of events organized by the fourth year students, supported by TISF though they were only assignments.Moreover, students with their own events were encouraged and funded by TISF, some them being Tambola, Mushairah, and Beach Picnic.
While the ruling party is preparing to throw out some final events and depart, students are waiting for the upcoming election to again select another pure democratic government. TISF 2007-08 – led by the President Haris Amin, General Secretary Mohammed Arsalan, and Finance Secretary Waqas Aman â€“ had done less but what has been done is with pure quality and according to the interests of the students. I would like to congratulate the whole TISF body and its coordinator Mr. Ali Hafeez for their excellent performance and I hope, that the upcoming TISF 2008-2009 will continue with the same tradition.
