FAS and IC members beaten up by SFI at a meeting at Presidency College

Democracy in Red Bengal showed its true (read blood red)colours today, 21st April (a day b4 Howrah polls) at a USDF (United Students Democratic Forum, that presently comprises of members of FAS, JU and IC, Presi)public meeting held at the PLT Hall of Presi, when members of Presi and CU Unit of SFI, who were present at the meeting among the audience and, under the able guidance of their Unit Secy,had all along been trying to mess up the meetin, finally resorted to violence, severely beating up several members of IC and FAS, including Nivedita Sen, the present VC of the Arts Union at JU!

Ironically, the topic for discussion was "Democracy in Campus and Beyond"! It seems SFI sure knows how to voice their opinion, no?

Plz pass this on to everyone on your list and ask them to Stop! Pause! and Think! before they cast their vote in favour of CPM in this election!

People are laying down their lives to gain democracy in Nepal, the least we could do is stop giving it away in gifts!

Can one FAS make a difference too?

To all ye doubtful, this is what Swatilekha has to say …

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you

Just a few CLICKS!!

Forum for Arts Students (FAS) organised a Placement Programme in Arts Faculty, JU --

Students checking out FAS posters in front of the Alumni Association building and, perhaps, also wondering why FAS had to be the FIRST (to organise placement in Arts)?

A poster announcing the schedule of the proposed campus interviews at the Alumni Association building.

Anxious candidates from Arts Faculty await their call in front of the Alumni Association building.

Nirmalya, Kushumika, Sohini and Swatilekha (L to R) doing a great job at the registration desk!

"What's going on inside ?" Debu sharing insider's view with the students in the queue!

TheReal GRILL! An interview in session!

BUT we had more than our share of Fun, too! Trust Nivedita for the silliest cracks at the most serious of moments! Seriously, we had to have our sides stiched up after a session with Nivedita Sen, God Bless Her!

The FAS Logo

Finally FAS has got itself a logo. Uuff! This is haRD work, man! Especially, when you are as confused as I about what looks hot and what NOT. To top that consider that Photoshop seems all Greek and Latin to me, except the name of course. After hours of back-breaking hard work, and after successfully screwing up a lot of my and my colleagues' work (and my office comp. too, i guess), I have finally come up with something that, I guess, has got some faint semblance to what a decent logo should be. But, of course! You are the final jury. So, please let me know how have I fared and ... try to be LENIENT!! Or am I asking for too much?
