Let’s go CLUBbing! A special edition on clubs@GIM

From the Editor’s desk!


Firstly, we want to congratulate everyone on actually completing a year here! Infinitely, we want to bid farewell to our beloved SCC‟s for their invaluable support and continuous encouragement. We wish the universe forever plays on your team. This final month has been surreal in so many ways that given a chance we would capture it and play it on repeat in our heads. Where else do you have … A „Razzmatazz‟ that played with both water and fire to ensure that our awesome seniors have an unforgettable blast in their final month here. Where else do you get to be a part of … A tale with choppers landing and commandoes swarming, culminating into the PM landing … leaving us spellbound and in awe.

When else would you be …. Living in a paradise sooo wonderfully fabulous that forever now, love for this land will remain elemental. As „clubbing‟ is our verb of the month and as Clubs do need some balm after the recent ST carnage, we present to you this special edition of our newsletter „Let‟s go Clubbing. In the words, learn what newly turned SCC‟s have to say about their Club In the spaces, know what they think about other Clubs We know that most of you started reading

My club in one word




My next favourite club :

My favourite club event

i3 <what a rejuvenation they have had…phoenix>

Handling PG and FB says Prithvi. Dikshant enjoyed Celebracion the most, although he‟s also a big fan of Razzie events. Chitra and Prajakta get their kick from the press calls they attend to!

-Prithviraj SAC (Love paying those fines) -Dikshant Prayas -Chitrangada & Prajakta

Ambassador of our club If I could rename my club, I would call it:

“No…we would prefer a er!!!!” Prithviraj


Prithvi and Dikshant would call it just PR Cell, and the girls would go for a fancier „RishteNaate‟.

“Mr. Avinash Jha” Dikshant “Prithviraj Gupta (PVR)” Chitrangada & Prajakta

Which brand of alcohol would my club be: Prithviraj thiks PR Cell would be LIIT (Long Island Ice Tea) as it has a touch of everything. Dikshant cracks an inside joke and says “It would be a cocktail called Ladyboy from Pattaya“ (We are as clueless as you are!), and the girls would go for „The king of good times, Kingfisher‟ Event suggestions to the other clubs Prithvi has a suggestion for all the clubs about Inception “Lets get together and make Inception bigger…turn it into a proper cultural festival”. Now we all know that Dikshant loves his drinks.“Some sort of drinking game organized by Razzmatazz and Prayas would be a great idea” he says. Chitra and Prajakta on the other hand would like to go back to their childhood days by asking Prayas to conduct “ back to childhood games (hide and seek, lock and key, corner corner etc.)

Our favorite meeting spot Vaibhav‟s room and the millions of impromptu meeting all over the campus seem to be all of their favorites. Which one did I love (Induction Dinner or Farewell ) & the place Induction dinner all over Panjim seems to be the unanimous favourite. Funniest club moments Mails from PR account without names and when asked who has sent the mail, the reply was „me‟ Prithviraj The sweatshirt incidents :P Dikshant Deciding nick names for all club members was fun.. We have rhyming nick names.. Prajakta (PR) and Prithviraj (PvR) have the PR tag in their nick names.. Vaibhav (VR) and Devyani (DR) rhyme too.. Chitrangada (CB) and Dikshant (DB) rhyme again.. All our mails to each other are addressed the same way Chitra & Prajakta

Ambassador of our club (Within ur club) : Me (ď &#x160;) Which brand of alcohol would my club be: Haywards 5000 (inke josh se bachke kaha jaoge ?) Event suggestions to the other clubs : Distribution of free alcohol every Saturday by RaZZmatazz Our favorite meeting spot:

Which one did I love (Induction Dinner or Farewell ) & the place: Farewell Funniest club moments: When Wipro speaker extended for 2.5 hours instead of half an hour and we did not know where to look.!

What GIM junta wants its clubs to do! CLUBS– PLEASE NOTE :D Shashibhushan suggests Kshitiz to have a Flash Mob Contest ”Which ever team can pull off the best flash mob in GIM Campus/Sanquelim” Krishnasish Nath suggests Kshitiz to have Art competitions. Karthik.S has a loooong suggestion for RT “ Find the real problem which that particular company has faced and bring in the speaker who was most involved in sorting out the issue. It gives a specific problem based study and learns the practical application of those with practical difficulties and how really company countered the same”. If RazzMatazz wants be in Shawn Menezes‟s good books, it should have Jazz sessions and POOL PARTY!!!!!!! Kalpak Iyer wants Mecca to conduct Outdoor Advertising competition within the GIM campus! And finally Fuzail Anjum says “ IT@GIM should have a LAN Gaming contest,like FIFA or NFS”

SPECIAL SEGMENT We have cracked our ribs laughing while reading their blog. Some Clubs took their acid tongue with a pinch of salt, while their sarcasm was lost on others! We don‟t know who they are, but we sure know that GIM has never been entertained like this before. These new freedom writers speak exclusively to KSHITIZ about clubs and beyond. Welcome aboard Team Sanquelim Times. You have arrived. And we‟re glad that you have :) 1) What compelled the birth of The Sanquelim Times? A: Constipation. And a relentless passion to bring out news and happenings, regardless of it being true or fake.

3) Why soo anonymous?

2) Was it envy? Are you one among those that didn't get to be “the elite of the campus” ? A: Oh, dammit. Is it that obvious?

A: ST‟s philosophy is certainly not “club-bashing”. We respect the work Clubs are putting in voluntarily to make our GIM life more… just kidding!

A: And you guys… why soo serious? 4) Is there some philosophy behind ST or are you just here to kick-ass ?


5) How many times have you felt an intense urge to laugh and say Ok Guys this is who I am? A: I tried saying. Nobody believes it‟s me. I don‟t exactly fit you know. So now every time I feel like laughing, I think about the half grand I lost on buying sweatshirt.

, 6.) So, let‟s get it straight once and for all. Which club makes it to the „ST Wall of Shame‟ and since we doubt the possibility of a „ST Wall of Fame‟, we would be happy to know which club is the farthest from this Wall of Shame. A. Wall of shame – Shiktijz. You had to interview us to have enough content for a newsletter? !! Wall of fame – Pee Easy. At least until 6th trimester

7) Since you have an opinion on all things GIM, do you think the Administration is a part of GIM too? A: GIM has administration too? We thought it‟s just “The Sack”. 8) Any advice, suggestion or comment for any club? A: Hey 2-cover-2, why-owhy? 9) Your blog says „You‟re Hiring‟. What kind of people are you looking for? Are JCC‟s eligible? A: That‟s just a gimmick to get funny applications. We got some too. But yeah, anyone who can contribute is indeed welcome.

10) Your reasons to agree to this interview? Are we ever going to get know your identity perhaps in a year or so?

12) How thrilled are you by the fact that you have become something close to the fake IPL Player of GIM?

A: Reason for interview? I just do things. The mob has plans. The clubs have plans. GIMâ&#x20AC;&#x;s got plans. I'm not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. And my identity, itâ&#x20AC;&#x;s already known. My IP address has been compromised. Lulz.

A: I get very thrilled, but then my MG gets deducted and I go back to sulking and finding ways to recharge my RFID. P.S. These are my views and not necessarily of team ST as a whole.

11) Or maybe, you can come out in the open after the second year and pass on your legacy of humour with secrecy to some likeminded PGP 1? A: Maybe.
