I’m sure everyone has heard the saying “the grass seems greener on the other side”. Let me rephrase that a bit…

“The grass in the past, was definitely greener”. Hmmm, there you go.

Well, a lot of people wouldn’t agree to what i have to say, but this is what I and a few others that i know feel about the university life. Before, it used to be somewhat polite, if not completely. Teachers used to care about what the students want and feel. Students used to consult the teachers for small matters, that were just time wasters for the teachers, but they didn’t ever turn them out. Teachers used to listen to us. They used to offer help. They used to advise us. Sometimes even supervise us. Never had they said no to any reasonable request put forth infront of them by any student. Hell, they even used to upgrade a lot before.

Whatevers happened to the graciousness and kindness of teachers, it did turn our university into a hell on earth. First off, our uni is out of the city. Secondly, we dont have much fun places to go to around the uni. As a matter of fact, we dont have any sort of fun activity to do if we ever decide to leave the premises. Thirdly, ragging has been banned.

Let me take this opportunity to tell you, that the friends that i made among the seniors, were my first raggers. They’ve supported me in many places, even after graduating. Where the TAs failed, the seniors took over. What they’ve done after the first semester, made me forget the ragging. Infact, ragging allowed me to be more confident, and it helped me learn the system faster. After my batch, the ragging was banned. The results of banning it were clearly visible even in the results of courses. Only a dozen people used to flunk Calculus 1 and ITC before and till our batch. After us, almost 60 people flunked or withdrew from ITC, and around 80 flunked or withdrew from Calculus 1. The next batch was even worse, they touched 120 in both courses. Ragging made us give more respect to our seniors, i’m sure at this point all the “newbies” must be thinking “what the hell? this guys so totally not making any sense”. Believe me, it will make sense to you a couple of years down the road, especially after graduation.

Last but not the least. All the fun events have also been taken away from us. AD, picnic, mela, ghazal night … and stuff like that. What is wrong with them? We’re humans, not robots. We need to chill, relax and not be always walking on our toes. FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE…cut us students a break! We are being made to realize, over and over and over again, that we committed the biggest mistake of our lives by taking admission in FAST. Even the peons talk sarcasm now. You don’t believe me? Then go talk to the “boy” sitting beside the door in the “ITard Dept.” … in short … Ayaz Ahmed’s room. Man! We need to teach him a lesson … teach him that, its him who need us to survive … without us, there would be no FAST. Now, ain’t that right?

This ad is just funny! checkout the explorer icon in it…hehehe…

Just Click it and the ad will launch.

The worst dream of the engineering block (collectively Telecom dept. and computer Engr. dept.) came true today at FAST-NUCES. Take a guess…come on…you can do it…no?

Yes, you guessed it right (even if you didn’t try to). FAST has failed to acquire accreditation from the PEC (Pakistan Engineering Council). Do you know what that means? Oh, nevermind i’ll tell you. It means that the students of Telecom and Engineering dept. are not going to get PEC recognized degrees. they’re gonna get Electrical engineering degree.

Oh my God, no wait… let me say that again… OH MY GAWD!! the crowd at FAST went haywild! lol it was soooo funny. You know what i call them now? Wannabes. Thats right, they’re all wannabe-engineers-turned-going-to-be-electricians. If you dont see the humor in it…you should go and brush your teeth, stare in the mirror for atleast 10 minutes if you’re a student belonging to the telecom or comp. eng. depts. If you still dont find it funny then you should probably commit suicide or ask someone else to kill you, because, atleast i’m gonna mock you all day long with the corniest of jokes about how you’re gonna get electrical engineering degrees after spending more than Rs. 350k at FAST.

Later… that day…Zubair Shaikh, the director of karachi campus, delivered a speech (read tried to brainwash) the peeps. So he put the choice between…PEC recognized Electrical engineer degree or BS electrical engineer degree. HUH! Talk about diplomatic MISleaders.

In my student should buy it. They paid the uni to get a PEC recognized degree in telecom or computer engineering…and they should get it! because its simply not their fault that the uni couldn’t build the lab before PEC delegation’s visit. Why should the students suffer?

Welcome to The FAST NU-isance Blog, reader. On this page you will find random and informal rants of the students of FAST-NUCES, Karachi Campus. The obvious first three question in your mind would be…

This blog is all about the student life, their miseries, their sufferings, their likings and the environment. Even if someone kills a fly at our beloved Buffalo Colony Campus, you’re gonna see the news up here because its not about the formal life, its about the informalities that let us survive through the tiring, frustrating, agonizing and edumacating four, more or less years spent at this beautifully-made-remote-from-the-city campus.

We need this blog because theres no such informal service available at university which we can use for the “greater good” of the student community. All the posts are/will be informal so theres no point in asking the “Tardministration”, “ITard dept.” or the “Tardemics”, i guess you get the point. The main objective is to bring you first hand encounters with the “nuisances” at FAST … and if possible, uncensored.

This blog is going to target the student community itself, since its sole purpose is to bring news to the students. As far as “who is going to run it?” is concerned, well, we’ll always be looking for aspiring new writers who know how a story can be put and can report daily dirt, may be with “masala”. What? Its always nice to read something funny ain’t it?
