The Troika Times Day 4

11th February 2014

“Samundar mein toofaan to uthte hi hain, Samundar mein toofaan to uthte hi hain; DTU mein toofaan IEEE ke orientation ke time hi aata hai.”

SAYONARA As this is the last edition of TTT ’14, we would like to say to anyone and everyone who felt offended by our content that we are NOT apologetic of our actions at all. After all, this is what TTT is meant to do. So that would be all for this year, but BEWARE, WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR!

NOTE OF GRATITUDE We would like to extend a warm vote of gratitude to our passed out seniors who have constantly motivated and appreciated us. TTT and IEEE DTU strives towards achieving the benchmarks that you have set for us and constantly improve upon them. We would also like to thank you for seeing and appreciating our TTT when the soft copy is uploaded on Facebook.


Events ki kahaani, humaari zubaani. electrocution The electrical circuit event was characterized by its eye-catching mascot in the lawns. A certain organizer arranged for three cartons of Rio for the event, but two of them mysteriously disappeared… The presence of the projector on site provided for much entertainment for the volunteers as they projected “electrocution” on their T-shirts and clicked many photographs. The event had to deal with too many nonsensical songs playing in the background, which increased in frequency as the day progressed, much to the annoyance of the participants.


Technovision, the annual technical paper presentation competition saw participation from esteemed colleges like IIT Delhi, NIT Raipur and so on. Apart from some small glitches like error in the name placards of the judges and difficulty to put up the banner, the event was well organised. When asked to get 10 pencils, our foresighted first year, got 10 sharpeners as well, shooting the budget.

BITS Bits was one of the most well organized events of Troika ’14. It was the ONLY event that started right on time. The event was attended by about 75 participating teams across various age groups of college students. It was held in two categories, I and II. The junior edition comprised of first and second years whereas the senior edition comprised of seniors. What was noteworthy is that in the senior category, only third year students could clear the cutoff. Even DTU’s best coder, an ACM ICPC world finalist cum Google placed senior, could not clear the cutoff.

Bots Bots, the artificial intelligence gaming challenge, was misinterpreted by many as roBOTics or a LAN gaming event. So organisers had to face queries like “kaun sa game khilaoge?” Checkers was the game to be programmed by the participants. With a good participation of eight teams and an excellent setup, organisers seemed quite content. By the end the comparer was blabbering, with just organisers and participants as the audience.


IEEE Ki Gufta Gu! Q: What do you think of juniors?

Q: What are your views on seniors?

A: “Clever people. Which first year is not sweet? A “Fun loving, faad, people, give us loads of work. Some are actually dangerous as well” – Second It’s fun to play pranks on innocent Mr Saru.” – First year. year. “ They seem to listen to their mood rather than their “Seniors? They definitely don’t work as much as we seniors! Always ready for backchodi.” – Third year. do. Kaamchor saale.” – Second year boy. Really? “I like any junior who would get photos clicked with “In one word – moody. Some of them are like brothers. No sisters, though. They’re pretty bossy.” – me!” – Third year, female. Guess who she is. :) Second year. Yeah, we couldn’t decode this cryptic one either.

Q: What do you think about the chairman?

Q: What are your views about Troika?

A: ‘”It doesn’t look like he can angry, Mast shayari A: “Simply enjoyment. It was “GREAT” getting up karte hai vo!” – First year. at 6AM to work for the last 2 days.” “Rishi sir is a unique character. Bahar se andar se bacche!” – Second year.

strong, “The biggest is as big as expected. The party nights are the best.” – Second year boys.

“Pandey ji can manipulate you any and every time!” “Techfest ka head hamesha IEEE ka hota hai. – Third years. Sabse zyada events!” First year with chaud.

Jai Mata Di! This is exactly what any of the TTT team members would say when asked about our beloved Mother India (too melodramatic!), because of the considerate and caring way in which she talks to everyone. She also scolds (yes she does that, in her own way) us when we fail to deliver the work within the stipulated time (especially our ‘Procrastination Ki Dukaan’). She is a diligent worker who worked with all her might throughout Troika even though she was very ill. And it would not be wrong to say that “agar MataJi nahi hoti to TTT bhi nahi hota”. The “pub head” describes his experience with her, “Yaar ye to meri senior hai do saal se, itna scold, help and support to kisi ne nhi kara”.

Guess Who :P :D


Khatey methay Lamhe!
