  4. 4. Message from the DirectorWelcome to IIT Guwahati! This is the most beautiful and scenicacademic campus in the country. You will realise how lucky you areto have been allotted IITG after you come to campus. Parents ofsome of you may be having apprehensions of sending their “child”to a place “so far away”. Please tell them they have nothing to worryabout. After all 13 batches of B.Techs have already graduated fromIITG, and there will about 3900 students from all over the countryon campus when you come here. The 270 or so faculty are also fromdifferent parts of the country. July may be wet and hot and sticky, butit is pleasant most of the year. You are going to join an IIT and youhave to work hard to do well here. Many students take it easy in the Directorfirst year and then their parents are horrified to find that their lovedone has failed in some courses! Do not let that happen to you. You Dr. Gautam Baruamust attend every class and work regularly. We expect the highest Dept. of Computer Science and Engg.standards of honesty, integrity and sincerity from our students. Please IIT Guwahatido not let your mind stray with thoughts of branch change, gettinginto an IIM or making millions after graduating. Thinking about thesethings will adversely affect your studies and so your grades andfailures will follow. If you do well in your studies, all your dreams willbe fulfilled. You will have nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, youwill get advice on how to “succeed”, how to fatten your biodata, howto plan your summers, etc. Please do not follow such advice. The IITway is to blaze your own trails. The IIT way is to think independentlyand to have an open mind. You are just getting into college. You have4
  5. 5. no idea of what the different branches of study are about. How canyou then be sure that this or that is the best way forward? Learn,explore, and then decide what is best for you. Studies are not allyou can do at IITG. This pamphlet highlights the many facilities andopportunities that await you to make the best use of. Please keepaway from bad habits. Addiction to Net surfing is a major potentialproblem. We shut down internet access in hostels during class timesand from 2 am to 5 am. Do not get into company that is into drugsor alcohol. These can spoil your entire life. Freedom is heady. Butfreedom can hurt, especially to those who are getting out of home forthe first time. Treasure and use your freedom carefully.All the best! 5

For intelligent and capable people like you, everything Dean of Academic Affairsshould be simple – including the IIT system. Everything is availablein the Institute’s Internet as well as Intranet sites.

Now its time to ease out a bit get yourselfinvolved with several activities to develop your personality andhone your skills. IITG has its own Cultural Board which organizesand promotes all extracurricular cultural activities. It has currentlynine clubs, namely; Anchoring, Choreography, Fine Arts, Literary,Performing Arts, Photography, Music and the Movie Club, meetinga wide range of interests of the students of the institute. IITG alsohas its own radio station where we are the RJs, and hopefully, inthe future, so shall you. We even have regular cultural nights wherestudents from all hostels gather together and enjoy the evening withlive dances and performances from some of the institute’s manybands.AlcheringaIn North-East India, IIT Guwahati organizes a cultural festival whichgoes by the name ‘Alcheringa’ (also referred to as ‘Alcher’) and itby far exceeds a majority of college festivals in terms of variety ofcompetitions, star-acts on Pronites, budget and everything else. So tosay, it undoubtedly dwarfs all other college festivals and stands out in16
  17. 17. its own league. It’s now been 15 years since Alcheringa was conceived,and it has grown from being a modest festival to a full scale culturalbash attracting participation from over 150 colleges and boastingof a footfall in excess of 30,000. In the recent years Alcheringa hasfeatured some exhilarating performances from some of the biggestnames in the entertainment industry, namely Sonu Niigaam, Shaan,Strings, KK, Euphoria, RDB, Motherjane and the likes. Though therecently concluded edition of Alcheringa ’10, aptly called, ‘AlcheringaXtreme’ & Alcheringa ’11 ,‘Lights, Camera, Action’, set new standardsfor any college level fest. The biggest attraction of Alcher Xtremewas the swiss folk-metal band ‘Eluveitie’. This was very first time thatEluveitie performed in India. Another mega pronite that was a part ofAlcher was the ‘Crescendo’, the night that the multiple award winningtrio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, KK performed live in front of a capacitycrowd in excess of 15k. And the list just goes on...the only Indianstand-up comedian on the international scene, Vir Das, performedhere with his comic rock-band Alien Chutney, Italian Musician GiulianoModarelli ,Advaita ,gave a sizzling performance in Saaz, the classicalnight. MTV stunt mania came to the campus and performed someinsane bike stunts in front of an awestricken audience. Xtreme sportssuch as Paintball, which people usually refer to as the live versionof counter strike, was ongoing along with wall climbing, Zorbing,etc.. Besides all these proshows, the various competitions witnessedcapacity participation. Rock-o-phonix, the rock band competition, 17
  18. 18. was an exhibition of exceptional class and energy and was very wellreceived by the crowds, and it was undoubtedly one of the best rock-band exhibitions ever seen.The bottom-line is, there are so many colleges and so many collegefestivals, and then there is something out of their league, somethingin a league of its own, there is Alcheringa.“Alcheringa 2012: Urban Odyssey.”Wait as you are taken to the urban meanders in this dreamy journeyof all the rebellion and all the compliance of the hip-hop grooves,the graffiti tags, the busy lives and the leisure past-times. Alcheringa2012 promises to work you through some sky scraping excitement andabsolute street fun!Come to this land, and witness our culture. Come to Alcheringa andwitness Fun.

  19. 19. gives you an excellent chance to bond with the seniors from yourhostel, and find new friends in your batch. Winning something of thisscale is not something a small group of people can ever accomplish,and entire army of dancers, writers, singers, instrumentalists, painters,and prop-makers will be required to oust the competition. Night-outs,team work, time management and delivering a winning performance,that’s just the kind of stuff the spirit of Manthan embodies.PAFThe Performing Arts Festival is yet another platform to showcase yourskills and help your hostel prove its mettle. It includes competitionslike dance, drama and music challenges. PAF is proof enough of thefact that hostel spirit will make you want to toil day and night, just forthat one moment of glory. You’ll see wind chimes, sugar jars and tincans adding to the beat, along with the usual guitars, violins,synthesizers and drums. Your feet will tap to the funky dancenumbers, you’ll tootle, you’ll scream, and you may very well see yourhostel win! 19

Fares have tobe negotiated and the ongoing rate is around Rs.350/- .From the railway stationAs soon as you step down onto the Guwahati Railway station, look forour students carrying ‘IITG’ placards, or their identification cards onthe platform. In case you miss them, go to the parking area of therailway station and look for buses with “ON IITG DUTY” written on thebottom corner of their windshield. If you cannot locate any of the 51
  52. 52. above, you have other options too. You can take an auto or a taxi fromthe station itself. The fare may be around Rs.350/- for an auto andRs.450 to Rs.500 for a taxi. Ask to be dropped off at the hostel gate.Another option is to catch a rickshaw to the pavement outsidePresident Hotel/Pan Bazaar Institute of Engineers, Pan Bazaar.Opposite to the President Hotel are IIT buses parked that depart forthe campus every hour. Parents are advised to book their returntickets in advance at least 2-3 days after registration.Upon reaching the CampusAll the students will have hostels allotted to them by the time theyreach the campus. Your first job will be to find out which hostel youhave been allotted. This enquiry can be done at the railway station/airport from the students of IITG. For the parents, accommodationcan be booked in the institute guest house by mailing an applicationto guesthouse@iitg.ernet.in specifying the duration of stay, number ofpeople visiting and the reason for visit.

Like any other city, Guwahati has its ownshare of fancy restaurants, shopping malls and other happening placesto hang out – when you find time to get away from your crushingschedule. IIT Guwahati students are held in very high regard and getpretty decent discounts from the local retailers and restaurants. Thefact that almost 90% of Guwahati speaks Hindi should dispel the fearsof facing a language problem. For getting around in the city, cabs orauto rickshaws are easily available, which can be hired at every marketcorner. The best idea would be to hire a car in advance to avoidgetting duped. Taxis are available for transport within the city but arewithout meters and fares have to be negotiated beforehand. There isalso an extensive network of city bus services and cycle rickshaws. 53
