From The Editor's desk
Sheer passion .. . layers of st.eely fiery. Wrapped under threads
undying flair, flair to persIst, flaIr to fight, flaIr to WID, flaIr to dIe. Sweat dnppmg down the forehead of
the rugged chin, kissing the bosom. Every known boundary of human strength stands infringed ' past
limit of human knowledge challenged, every realm ofthe soul transgressed. The gladiator stands afievery
battle, the arrogant sun rays glistening offhis unnerved face. The arena bursts into a hideous apPlaus:.

Swamim hai ye bhav hamara
Sarvottam Azad hamara
As the sun on glorious chapter of Azad, we our indomitable
perfonnance ID the SOCial and Cultural GC and the pre-emmence and unflmchmg authonty displayed'
the Sports GC all humility. We face little disappointments in the Tech .GC though, being
defending champIOns and as the seOlor year stalwarts graduate, we need to dig deep and galvanise
ourselves for the roadblocks ahead. The fact that we have the second VP, TSG in a span on years speaks
volumes of the position of Azad Hall in the institute. Overall, this year we have set standards for us to
match and build upon and I am certain that in the coming year, our Hall will blossom in the reflection of its
new found potential. That apart, it is heart rendering indeed to see such fervour in the eyes of the new
generation and an intense desire to succeed in whatever sphere it comes across and the reader can be rest
assured that the future of Azad is in safe hands.

Azadian 2009

FROM THE WARDEN'S DESK
As the warden, I am indeed proud of the Azad Hall of Residence for its glorious heritage, its
achievements and the diversified events it is a host to. The boarders have shown true spirit in both
academic and extra-academic activities, as was amply displayed this year, to bring immense repute to this
hall.
The management skills of the hall council members are laudable from the point of view of discipline,
maintenance, mess bill and security. Also having two Gymkhana Vice-Presidents elected within a mere
span on years is very commendable and I hope the glorious past of the hall will be further built upon in the
future and the excellent treads that have been set will be maintained.
I wish the entire outgoing batch a very prosperous and bright career ahead and I welcome the newcomers
with a desire that their stay here will be full of achievements, vigour and vitality.

FROM THE HALL PRESIDENT'S DE
Fellow Azadians,
nother year has passed and now it is time to reflect on the past year, the time that we have sp
. . . d . h) h . ent on
various endeavors - tndlvldually and together, the days (an mg ts we ave spent trymg to ach'
. . leVe
success in the various GCs, the hours of hard work we put m to make our hall proud. And the results h
aVe
been tremendous. It was hard luck on our part that the GCs were scrapped and so they won't be in our h U
they were ours for the taking. We are easily the uncrowned champions of the insti - we were leading
Soc-n-Cult "AND" Sports GCs with a comfortable margin. No other hall dared challenge the winru e
spirit and detennination shown by us. We also proved our mettle in the Gymkhana elections - getting
post ofVP back in Azad for the second time in three years.
The past ear has been a very eventful year even at the institUte level. Although none of us would have
hoped that such unfortunate incidents would come to pass at our beloved institute.
There were a series of chaoses since the beginning of the semester. Starting with 11 pm ban on students
going outside the campus, which was further exteljded to restriction on the movements even outside the
halls . ith a series of meetings and negotiations we were able to get the inside ban lifted and outside ban
relaxed. econdly there was a steep increase in the insti fees .Sweeping contract was another area with
series of loopholes in it specially the charges per student which was just a magic number to us with no
e planation .Finally we were able to draft proper conditions and guidelines for the sweeping contract
tender and hope in future the students will get proper service and value for their fee.
KHOr08 was a grand success with all clues cracked and no unfortunate incidents by its closure· a
remarkable impro ernent over the yesteryears.
Illumination was brought to a halt th is year, mainly as a fonn of protest against the 11 P.M. ban on students.
As a result, Diwali celebrations this year were more fun-fined and less labor intensive. A symbolic IlIu,
o e er as organized on the day of the Alumni Meet to pass on the funda to the freshers' batch. Even if
the mu tradition is continued this year we shall still be the flag-bearers since most of the fourth-year junta
ho ha e funda regarding IIIu will still be here.
Comin to ( e GCs, we led the Soc-n-Cult and Sports GCs throughout the year. Although, the fall in our
in from champions in the Tech GC was discomforting. The Dramatics team deserves kudos for their
in perfonnance inviting insti-wide applause in Hindi Drams and Choreo. This went a long way
the tempo of everyone in the hall, especially freshers. Perfonnances in the Ent and Lit cup
ed ub ntially. The hard work of the Farts team also brought expected results. In sports th.e
e t am perfonned e cellently with the Volley team continuously impro iog their
innm itv r th is year which made a significant contribution to our kitty of medals. We

Being n AZ
The year of drama, chaoses & most importantly the year of is still on but what's common i ever
dying passion for AZAD in the hearts of each and every Azadlan.
Th II m ban and the chapter of innumerable DC's and consequently boycott of illumination& the open
h e the charts of So-Cult and sports GC, the tragic event of death of Rohit due to lack of
o:s'l facilities consequent changes in the administration and formation of student welfare committee
:d perfect end with a vice president of gymkhana from AZAD . This year had it all spices pos ib e.
The 11 pm ban was something which certainly one of the most enjoyable thing in this lIT campus
i.e. freedom of an individual. D.Bhattacharya, thiS name was even more popular and figure at t e
than anyone else in the adm inistration: A number DC called for students on arbitrary grounds. The
matter of relief was that very few azadlans where mvolved ill It .
On the grounds of this ban and innumerable number of DC , community really to
had a talk to administration but no one was ready to entertam. Then came the Idea of boycottmg
illumination as and idea to raise your voice and ensure that it is being heard by the deaf administration.
Finally a weak before the illumination when the institute thought that the student where serious with their
idea ad the pressure from the alumni mounted raising the question about illumination, the administration
was ready to have a "formal" talk with student But that was too much "formal" for some good results to
come out of it and it was decided that the tradition started by AZAD since 1989 would be boycotted this
year and it will b done in a bit different style. This was the frrst time in this year that student where facing
the administration one on one.
The passion of each and every participant for gold brought laurels for the haH at the Inter hall events and
results came accordingly. This was the most satisfying thing that happened this as our efforts where seen to
get the aspired results and after so many years we went to lead both the GC's .In tech GC we cud not repeat
the last year performances but in that too we were among the top three position holder. We could seeAzad
as a much better coordinated team on stage and off stage in events .The commitment of the captains and
their "pali" with each other is worth mentioning in this regard.
The political drama and the GC fever was on the top, suddenly something came out very tragic. The death
of one the 3 nI year student ofLLR hall due to lack of medical facilities and attention by the BC Roy hospital
gave student another point to raise their voice against the administration .This time the protest had taken
an another direction and such incidents happen that could be found in the history of any of the lIT's. The
rampage of students at the Director's Bungalow and the forceful resignation of the director of the institute
.Each and every student in lIT Campus outraged with anger and frustration over the facilities availed by
the student here. Even the Chairman of BC Roy and Dean of student affairs (DOSA) had to resign. The
matter is being investigated by the external enquiry committee set up and a student welfare committee has
been formed to a track over the development of facilities at lIT Kgp paqicularly on the medical lines.
The role of Azadlans was prominent the protest and the student welfare committee that was setup.
The "poltu" scene for gymkhana election was even much more eventful. The Vice President OfgyrnKtl8Wl\
was elected with a minimum margin of 19 votes that ever happened in the history of institute and it was
AZAD which performed such wonders.
Shubham Mata!t the new VP is representing the whole student community now and it feels great
efforts of Azadlans for the entire academic season produced favorable results. Well I am proud to stat,tb
factthatAzad has produced 2 VP in 3 years.
In spite of going through such an eventful year what strikes me first is the way each and every sn.aellt
the hall up for the name" Azad "whatever be the occasion. Well the scene looks promising
next academIC season too and I wish to say all the best to everyone for it. Finally as a SSM nf"tllwP'fl
year student and above all being anAzadian I wish we will continue to prove that
We are united, We are the best ,& We are -AZAD

unforgettable. Baba and 'KK'(Kunal Kashyap)embracing the trophy and thetola! galosh in the hall ,w.,.
the unforgettable moments. So was the night long photo session ....
The day is still vivid in the memories of all azadians as well as the whole ofinsti.
Well that was Tech GC 2007·08 and then came the responsibility to cany on the legacy for 2008-091Dd
get back the tech GC to where it belongs. The overall scenario ofTech GC 2008-09 was not that culturod
with many frustrating subcoms and a few chaoses from the usually chaotic hall(s), not to mention.
Th.e journey began with the chern innovation wherein our team with night long effort got a bronze, gold
beong shared by ms and RK. Ours was the team to get the best presentation point for the event
and thalloo we lost gold by cliche 0.5 marks. :.(
The next event that came rolling was Product design wherein few judges fililed to understand ourproduot
(high end computer with many facilities like 3d projection, multipointer etc). No wODdertbey w ... from
chemical and biotechnology since they considered it too filrfetched. However this same idea
appears in ted talks and digit magazine Feb. edition 2009, 3 months after the event So it seems lllIdions
always think a step ahead then the rest.
Next came the case study. With too many judges contacted and finally settling for XLRI maoag<ment
scbooljudge. This event saw a drastic change compared to last yr. since last yr the q-paper was 4 pages it
turned to be 24 pages this time. Though we got highest in the report part and the presentation was also
good we managed to get a bronze here. However RP and LLR met \vith chaoses . Since RP made. cd
submission which could not be read and LLR exceeded the presentation time by 5 sees. RP escaped by
recovering the data from cd using some blah blah software however LLR \.:" penalized.
Then carne ad design wherein compared to last time this time q·paper was of2lines. :haha though RPnied
many efforts about winning the event by giving pamphlets and wearing t·shirts during presentation .W.
josh mein aake hosh kho gaye ... :P I mean they got penalized for overruling 8 rule. and azad 1aodedwi1b
silver here with a simple attractive design campaign. Yo "Linire" (the product name).
The Maths Olympiad team was good and so was the preparation The funny part being the ...., ...
undecided till 1 minute before the event since all the 5 team members were equal1y good . Yo team ... and
wegotasilverin the event.
However the unfortunate demise of Late Mr. Rohit Kumar due to lack of medical facilities left
Cients outraged. Lets hope that authority takes constructive steps to improve medical facilities III
campus.
Th the overall scene of Tech GC this yr was good, and let the spirit be held up high.
'If better to die fighting for Azad thlin to live 8 lowly life.'

Moving on fi'om this abstract world I would like to cite an instance while I was this position of

intact was his love for mess even after 15 years that he presented a pair of pants and shirts to each of1ll.
mess and office staff. One thing worth mentioning, he liked the mess food very much. :)
A few super hit items on which everyone could reach a common consensus were: Gazar ka Halwa, Maal

Lassi.
Looking at the standings in Soc'oCult and Sports GC, I would congratulate all the .capta.i ns and 1IIe

what keeps you happy. Looking around, the only people who are carefree, who truly are happy are nehlis.
They are satisfied, I am not. Secondly, because my parents deserve belterthan to see their son going down

Taking a cue from my favourite movie, I would like to extrapolate the idea that for a 'man' to achieve his
destiny. it is necessary that he should be aptly confronted with sufficient motivation and inspiration which
a female kiss can adequately infuse. But taking into consideration the skewed up and the horrendously
lIonaIdous sex ratio in our institute, are all KGPians lost? No, for Providence foresaw such a problem
wbic:h future engineers might face because of the heartlessness of the MHRD to introduce all kinds af

two concepts-hall tempo and a female kiss, are mutually exclusive and exhaustive and if an individual
wboalso happens to be a hapless male is deprived of both, then word has it that he is to be incarcerated

NATURAL WONDERS
As I lay beneath a tree in the countryside out yonder
One amongst the many that served as my glorious mansion
My mind's eye began to drift and wander
Only to stop when it gazed upon the formidable ocean
It then struck its contemplative chord
And my heart obligingly picked up the chorus
I pondered upon the moment when the almighty lord
Took it upon himself to paint this breathtaking colossus
It was so rich, so pure, with its heavenly blues
Even time lay still admiring its raw power
While a rainbow guarded it with its various hues
And the fatherly sun above it seemed to tower
My thoughts took on a different tum
I was enamuored by this giant expanse of water
Nature could teach so much if only one was willing to learn
It could prevent this madness, this unnecessary slaughter
Where human stamped on human in the name of Darwin
Where beauty is sacrificed in the name of progress
Surely there must be some way in which everybody could win
A way that nature itself had adopted with great success
With that my mind steered yet another course
As if unwilling to dwell upon this for long
As if wishing to take some recourse
For of COUBe, it was a part of this song
I began contemplatmg the wonder we call hfe
Wasn't it just like this serene
So vast, so beautiful, so full of stnfe .
So enigmatic, so simple, so full of emotion
Storms come and then just as
The ocean bears it with unwavenng equanlJDlty
then do we falter at every blow
y don't we laugh at fate's comicality
erbaps the reason why we satisfied
The cause of our endless
Can in one simple line be clanfied
We j st could not emulate the ocean

Kunda. Kumar l:undan.iirkgp@gmail.com: In BiharlWo achievements are highly
revered: I) You are an IInan 2) You e",ck upse. Already an nnan Kundan is on
the road to become one g..,at and honest lAS in near future, whose market value in
matrimonial secto, may thus, be a 8 to 9 digit ligure. Kundan(the true muscle-man
of our wing) is a very different per.;on of our batch. Many may call his usual
manners a bit unusual. but we prefer to describe him iconoclastic. Contrary to our
usual perception of our mess food, you will fmd him religiously treading its path all
the 4 meals any given day. During holidays, he finds Gokhale Mess more preferable
to any other restaurant in and around nT. A great connoisseur of Hindi films and
songs, he has seen a great many old hindi movies (although he takes no more than 15
minutes in completing a given movie). Kundan has 8 class of his own.
