Celebration Time at
- by Vinamra Srivastava *
The T-Nite result day later
transformed into a celebration day... or rather a celebration night. We all
decided that we will meet up after dinner to go on a victory lap all around the
campus. We gathered old tin-cans that had so far survived our beatings over the
past four nights and we caught hold of a whistle too.
All armed, we assembled near the mess. And from there started our victory march.
"Section A ka naara hai-T-Nite hamara hai..." We went to each dorm,
shouting this and our other tempo shouts, beating the tin-cans further and
blowing the whistle at the top of our lungs!!!
The idea being very clear... to
make as much noise as possible and let the entire WIMWI know that Section A was
on a victory round
. It's a
tradition at this place to soak people with water when they come to your dorm
and it was practiced to the fullest when we reached every dorm during our march.
And as it is, it had started raining as well. So there we were, shouting slogans
and beating drums and simultaneously getting wet under the buckets of water and
the rain gods at the same time. It was nearly a two-hour celebration, whereby we
touched every dorm at WIMWI and the enthusiasm never waned. An awesome
celebration, a very well-earned and deserved as well, I must say.
The T-Nite was much more than a
cultural fest. It was much more than an inter-section competition. It was much
more than the noise, the rivalry, the talent, the sleepless nights, the tension,
the fun, and in the end, the victory. T-Nite made us bond, united us as one,
gave us new friends, some of whom will remain so throughout our lives. T-Nite
taught us that life at IIM-A is much more beyond academics, it taught us that
all those scholars are capable of letting their hair loose and dancing at 3.00
in the night to wild music, it taught us that what's most important is not the
self, but the class, and it in a way redefined our future stay at WIMWI.
Post T-Nite, we all seem to get
much more comfortable and set in our daily routine. The load was still the same,
but out attitudes towards handling the same changed, I guess. We were much more
relaxed and positive and started enjoying the stress and load. It no longer
seemed to be a pain and it felt like we have finally arrived at WIMWI. The
classes were much more fun and so were the frequent parties we had.
The post mid-term period passed
in a flash. Towards the end, things got super hectic. We had loads of
assignments, projects and quizzes apart from the regular class preparations. The
end-terms arrived so soon, and it felt as if the T-Nites had just ended. As
usual, I won't go into the details of the exams. In a nut shell, they were tough
but interesting, and there were mixed emotions about them.
What happened after the exams???
Coming up shortly...
