Memoirs of Shaastra2008

October 12, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments
  • Post Shaastra, my room could have easily been mistaken as the biggest dustbin of IITM. After all, where do you find dried liquid stains all over the floor, and the floor itself covered with a layer of ash? Where do you find 7-8 bottles, some half empty, some half filled, some sealed, lying in every corner possible? All this, thanks to a certain group of 17 individuals who decided to meet in my room every now and then for reasons unknown!
  • It took me to a t-shirt factory! For the first time I saw the printing techniques, the way screens are made, those colourful CMYK bottles… Nice experience, given the fact that I wanted to visit such a factory since long.
  • How many times have you sat in a T-72 battle tank and looked through the telescope there? I have, once.
  • Wearing a 32.5kg bomb diffusion armour, which took two men about 20 minutes to put on me was some experience!. It was really heavy and I found moving around in it extremely difficult.Β  When they finally removed the helmet, I was sweating profusely and gasping for breath, even though the suit was well ventilated from inside. Hats off to the men who use it regularly on dangerous missions.
  • Measuring the KV ground! It was 10 in the night. Neta and me, assisted by a volunteer, measured the entire KV gound using some ropes. It took us about an hour and every minute was highly enjoyable.
  • It cost all the core members in my wing their computers. Doodh’s hard disk got corrupted, Neta’s drives got corrupted, Chola’s comp refused to switch on (turning off the moment someone opened a PDF), mine too refused to open (fortunately the data was preserved).
  • Laser Show! No words to describe this extravaganza! Next day’s newsletter praised it, the only thing in entire Shaastra. Kudos to Neta, the copywriters and the music composers for pulling off the great show.
  • In the closing ceremony, when Dean Students said that Shaastra2008 was the biggest Shaastra he has seen, we felt proud.
  • Working with a team of impressive graphic designers, creative copywriters, excellent photographers and videographers and talented, hard working ambience coordinators taught me so much that I will be ever grateful to each one of them.
