We ~id face little disappointments in the Tech .GC though, being th~defending champIOns and as the seOlor year stalwarts graduate, we need to dig deep and galvaniseourselves for the roadblocks ahead. The fact that we have the second VP, TSG in a span on years speaksvolumes of the position of Azad Hall in the institute. Overall, this year we have set standards for us tomatch and build upon and I am certain that in the coming year, our Hall will blossom in the reflection of itsnew found potential. That apart, it is heart rendering indeed to see such fervour in the eyes of the newgeneration and an intense desire to succeed in whatever sphere it comes across and the reader can be restassured that the future ofAzad is in safe hands.The EditorAzadian 2009 •
    • FROM THE WARDENS DESKAs 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 merespan on years is very commendable and I hope the glorious past ofthe hall will be further built upon in thefuture 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 newcomerswith a desire that their stay here will be full ofachievements, vigour and vitality.Prot: T.K Cbaki
    • AZADfAN 200 ./ FROM THE HALL PRESIDENTS DE Fellow Azadians, nother year has passed and now it is time to reflect on the past year, the time that we have sp various endeavors - tndlvldually and together, the days (an d mgh) we have spent trymg to ach on . . . . ts . ent ( . . leVesuccess in the various GCs, the hours of hard work we put m to make our hall proud. And the results h aVebeen tremendous. It was hard luck on our part that the GCs were scrapped and so they wont be in our h Uthey 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 espirit and detennination shown by us. We also proved our mettle in the Gymkhana elections - getting t~!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 havehoped 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 studentsgoing outside the campus, which was further exteljded to restriction on the movements even outside thehalls . ith a series of meetings and negotiations we were able to get the inside ban lifted and outside banrelaxed. econdly there was a steep increase in the insti fees .Sweeping contract was another area withseries of loopholes in it specially the charges per student which was just a magic number to us with noe planation .Finally we were able to draft proper conditions and guidelines for the sweeping contracttender 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· aremarkable 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 ifthe 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 ~"C"in 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 oot r te m to follO: uit and improve on the Bronze 0 this year. ion er in the midst of chaose nd unfortun te in idents whi h m de it less . o i i ible poli i .But in th nd , on the I tions b a narrow margUl i in ymh na I lion . . that habit" d what J n m ut from th past year I oe<::om th innio pirit z d " ill d finit Iy ntinue and hts od in the im t ~~IU !!
    • 0--..00 Being n AZThe year of drama, chaoses & most importantly the year of c~anges is still on but whats common i everdying passion for AZAD in the hearts of each and every Azadlan.Th II m ban and the chapter of innumerable DCs and consequently boycott of illumination& the openh e ~opping the charts of So-Cult and sports GC, the tragic event of death of Rohit due to lack of o:sl 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 c~rbed one of the most enjoyable thing in this lIT campusi.e. freedom of an individual. D.Bhattacharya, thiS name was even more popular and ~ated figure at t ethan anyone else in the adm inistration: A number ~ DC wh~re. called for students on arbitrary grounds. Thematter ofrelief was that very few azadlans where mvolved ill It .On the grounds of this ban and innumerable number of DC , stud~nt community whe~e really wishin~ tohad a talk to administration but no one was ready to entertam. Then came the Idea of boycottmgillumination 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 theiridea ad the pressure from the alumni mounted raising the question about illumination, the administrationwas ready to have a "formal" talk with student But that was too much "formal" for some good results tocome out of it and it was decided that the tradition started by AZAD since 1989 would be boycotted thisyear and it will b done in a bit different style. This was the frrst time in this year that student where facingthe administration one on one. The passion of each and every participant for gold brought laurels for the haH at the Inter hall events andresults came accordingly. This was the most satisfying thing that happened this as our efforts where seen toget the aspired results and after so many years we went to lead both the GCs .In tech GC we cud not repeatthe last year performances but in that too we were among the top three position holder. We could seeAzadas a much better coordinated team on stage and off stage in events .The commitment of the captains andtheir "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 deathofone the 3nI year student ofLLR hall due to lack ofmedical facilities and attention by the BC Roy hospitalgave student another point to raise their voice against the administration .This time the protest had takenan another direction and such incidents happen that could be found in the history of any of the lITs. Therampage of students at the Directors Bungalow and the forceful resignation ofthe director ofthe institute.Each and every student in lIT Campus outraged with anger and frustration over the facilities availed bythe student here. Even the Chairman of BC Roy and Dean of student affairs (DOSA) had to resign. Thematter is being investigated by the external enquiry committee set up and a student welfare committee hasbeen formed to h~ve a track over the development of facilities at lIT Kgp paqicularly on the medical lines.The role ofAzadlans 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 OfgyrnKtl8Wlwas elected with a minimum margin of 19 votes that ever happened in the history of institute and it wasAZAD which performed such wonders. Shubham Mata!t the new VP is representing the whole student community now and it feels great u~ efforts ofAzadlans 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 stoo~ 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"tllwPfl 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 Niraj Singh econd enate member

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, Maalpuwa (my tribute to the Gold winning Hindi Drams team and Suthars character), Tandoori chic ken and Lassi. Looking at the standings in SocoCult and Sports GC, I would congratulate all the .capta.ins and 1IIe freshers in our hall. Right now we have the potential to win all the.

You make compromises, make themevery day, but to no avail. What started out as a perfectly happy day ends with me sulking. See, this post .sa testimony. I am sulking. Primarily because I do not care to, or do not have the time to study. Yes, at theend of the day tha~s all that malters in KGP, and in life for that matter. How much youve studied, tha~swhat keeps you happy. Looking around, the on ly people who are carefree, who truly are happy are nehlis.They are satisfied, I am not.
