club and It would be honor and pleasure to be associated with it.
5.What are 3 most important issues that you would like to cover first after your
selection and why? [for Journalist] [200 words]
a) The issue of fraud in academics as it affects us all and is probably the one
thing in IIT that sickens me the most. If a student isn’t honest in his academic
life,how can a potential recruiter expect him to be honest about anything
b) The issue of politics in elections. Although the administration has taken
measures to reduce it’s role,it’s still the elephant in the room when it comes
to life in IIT
c) A comprehensive report about various events being conducted in IIT(house
days,BHM et al)
