A blog on yesterday's club inauguration ceremony,

Club inauguration ceremony @ BIT,Mesra for 2k14

13th August, 2014; Mesra:
Have you ever eaten a grand maharaja thali? So many options leave you literally blank with what to have at the start.

Well!! The same could be said abut the Club inauguration ceremony for 2k14 batch @ Bit, Mesra which took place on 13th of August, 2014. As many as 20 official clubs presented themselves before the fresher’s, some culturally oriented, some technically oriented, some socially oriented while some adventure based. Each one looked as attractive and funnier to be a part of.

Remembering some of the names, I can broadly classify them as

1. Technical Clubs
• Clubs like IEEE, SAE, IETE, and Robolution were technical clubs which will help you apply your technical knowledge and your learning in class to the real world problems.
• It will definitely add stars to your resume and will help you get that extra advantage during the placements.

2. Cultural Clubs
• There are many clubs suiting your hobby and passion. From painting, music, drama, ramp walk, singing to poetry, writing, photography….you have it all.
• Some of  which I remembered  were Fine Arts, Dance clubs, Ehsaas, Music club, Literature and poetry, Photography, Dramatics

3. Social Clubs
• Since, we have now moved to college from schools, it’s high time to understand our social responsibility toward our mother nation. To help you in doing so and actually being the change we want to see, BIT have many social clubs which range from working in the camps to outside.
• Few of the clubs were LEO, EPAC, EHSAAS, and ROTARACT

4. Adventure clubs
• Although many of these social and cultural clubs boast of being adventurous along with all their activities, there is a dedicated club for planning your trekking, rock climbing, camping etc
• Sports and Adventure club will not only help you with your physical fitness teaching you various games and even some form of defense arts like Judo, they will make sure you don’t miss any nearby adventurous spots planning outings now and then.

So many stuffs, Right??
What more do you want?  Oh you missed the last event and want to get updated. No problem. The next club exactly does that.

• This club is for all budding journalist within you. This club officially boasts of having a connection with the real media world and will be your window to connect to them.
• Be it any event, an interview, an issue, or anything editorial, if you have a passion to bring out the truth, this is your platform. So get ready to publish your own wiki leaks.
• You can also work as a freelancer to this club posting your story on their email id.

So the list finally ends. I don’t know about you guys, but I wanna taste as much stuff as I can from this maharaja thali.

The ceremony began at around 6 in the evening with a lovely lady holding a mic. She briefed the inauguration ceremony. It was already a huge crowd and many have to stand at whatever place they could fit it to witness the show.
One by one every club presented their presentation within the stipulated time limit they had. The funny noise from the back brought the mood a little humorous. Dance show set the mood going for the rest of the evening. I can’t remember the song; I guess my eyes were more active during the event than my ears. With little hiccups now and then, the show ended petty well with the dramatics guys ending it dramatically leaving the freshers with so many options to choose from.The sky is only the limit with so many good opportunities for all the freshers.

 All the best !!

Jharkhand elections : Bokaro and AAP

Jharkhand Vidhan sabha election : Bokaro and AAP

by Arvind Kumar

Jharkhand vidhan sabha is at the dawn and all political party have begun their campaign to make a decent mark at the 81 seat assembly.The big players are
1. Bjp

And the new entrant are


1.Bjp would like to ride on its Modi wave and repeat the performance of loksabha winning a majority on its own.

2.Congress will like to make a comeback after a thrashing defeat in many States and then in lok sabha.

3.JVM,JMM,AJSU enjoys a good local support which was evident from their last time performance .But their ability. to deliver is a matter of debate since the human index parameter have not improve much in their constituencies.

4.TMC ,JDU and RJD would like to spread their foothold from their current mother state and would like to write new stories for the land of forest.

5.What about AAP ?
AAP raised many hopes in the most corrupt state of India since its formation in the capital. Soon,there were many people joining the movement from streets and corners of the state and many new offices sprouted in no time.It enjoyed huge response from cities like Bokaro,Jamsedhpur,Dhanbad,Ranchi.

What next ?
A survey conclues that 80% of the people are fed up with the current government and want to change their MLA. AAP can surely fill this void given they stand out to the present challenges. Given the current scenario where the party is fighting for its renaissance, a strong and fresh leadership can resurrect the movement again.Hit by massive corruption since its formation ,the state has no where to go but forward .
Bokaro had great  youth and educated force which is migrating to other state in need of job and colleges. The state governmeant is a big failure.The issue of displaced continue bothering even after 40 years of industrialisation . There are no strong policies toward school and coaching centres .Encroachment is yet another problem. THe challenges are unlimited . A manifesto for the district taking up major problems and their solution will be step advantage against the rest of parties which have never shown any interest to solve the issues and just politicize them .Winning back the lost confidence of people is definately their biggest hurdle.
Surely AAP can deliver a lot more than any political party working in the state for almost a decade and half, only if given a chance to prove.

A trip to Vaisno Devi


Jhor se bolo...........Sare bolo...........Jai Mata Di !!

Hello friends,
I am back after a refreshing journey from the mountains of Vaishno Devi. I would like to share my experience and give  you some important tips so that you can enjoy the journey like we did.

My journey began from Chandigarh. We have  a reservation from  Amabala to Jammu Tawi by an early morning train. So we got up early, all excited , rechecked our bags and headed on.

The train was on delay as usual and we reached Jammu Tawai railway station by eveining 7. We found out that there  were buses running to Katra  every 15 mins . We took a bus which charged Rs 50/seat. Although we travelled in dark, we could visualize the  beauty by the roads. After nearly an hour ride , we arrived at Katra.

We needed to find a rest room to get fresh and have a bath before begining our trek. Once we landed off the bus there were no. of lodge wala asking for their service. We felt better to move on a little and do some enquiry. At nearly 200 mtr toward the main market we found a place where we were given a room to stay till we freshern ourself. They asked us just to buy prasad from them in return which cost around Rs 200 - Rs 500 and more as per your need. We kept our luggage , had our dinner nearby and took a shower. The water was really cold . You can either take a shower at hotel or take a holy dip in the stream nearby. We checked out depositing our luggage at the lodge iself. It was quite safe and convienient to trek without these heavy bags.

The weather was cool and there was proper lighting to avoid any difficulty. Most of the time we took road. Before begining your jouney, dont forget to get your ticket for the mandir. As we had army pass, we got them easily. After all set and done, we began at 10 pm. Treking in night was a great advantage as the days gets really hot. We preffered to go by walking but you can also book a horse or a caravan to travel. They cost somewhere between Rs  2000- 5000.So plan accodingly.Its better not to have kids as they can get tired petty soon and then you have to carry them all the way up.

There was immense energy while climbing with people slogging  " Jai Mata Di" all the way. Important thing to practice while trekking is to have plenty of fluids, do rest at times for short times, and while moving keep breathing deep to avoid fatiqueness. It was  night and we missed on the scenic view but the absence of sun was a great help.

At around 3 in the morning , we reached Mata ka Mandir after 5 hours of continuos walk. Youngster can prefer stairs if they are regular with running otherwise its better to go with roads. We did our puja and decided to halt a little before clibimng up for Bairav Mandier, which was another an hour climb.  We borrowed Kambal at a deposit of Rs 100 per piece which was completely refundable. We were really tired and slept wherever we got a space to lie down.

We woke at around 6 in ther morning. The view was JUST AMAAAZING. Early sunshine fell on the mountains and shone them like gold. We all just gazed at them for the next 10 mins, There was sanitary facility nearby. After half an hour, we were ready to move ahead. At nearly 8 am, we reached Bhairov Temple. It took another half an hour for darshan.
After puja we went to a eatary nearby and had breakfast . It was petty good and economical. Best part was , I could charge my cell there. After some photography, we started descending.

We caught up on every natural beauty which we missed while climbing. Be sure to be alert with the monkeys as they will take away your prassad .  While returning we saw people profusely sweating  in the sun making them more tired which again remind me of asking you to plan your climb at night. We got down pettty quickly. At around 10 , we were at Katra.We checked in  at the lodge. There was facilty of maliswala available too if you needed one.  We were schedule to leave in the night . So we did some shopping  in the evening.  At 8 pm we left for Amritsar via bus.

It was a spiritual and mesmorizing experience.
