"With the possible exception of the equator, everything begins somewhere....this blog began on 23rd August 2004".This blog is a saga . . . The saga of an idea transforming into an event !
If you are visiting for the first time, it would be advisable to start from the first post... you will have to go to the archives for that.
Mastishk '05......The start of a journey
. . . and the minds behind it
The end and the beginning
Well....when Aswin sent the invite to join the blog......I was whiling away my time listen to some good old Hindi film music.......And finding the invite in my mailbox, thought let me try my hand at this....before I go and find out, who has done the assignments, we need to submit tomorrow :)
I'm Jagandeep alias Jagan as my friends call me, the Creative Coordinator for Mastishk -05 and also the brains behind "Venture into Capitalism" (watch out for what it is:))).......As far as Mastishk-05 is concerned.......we have an envious task at hand; Mastishk-04 was a huge success and we plan to go one better in '05........The blog may have been dormant for a little while but the team wasn't and the ECs and the Marketing Team and the GCs (Game Coordinators) have all been working to create something which we and the Management community at NITIE can be proud of.
I've spent quite some time on this and its better I find out someone now......so that I'm able to submit the assignments tomorrow. Before I leave, I promise that I'll be back pretty regulalrly till M'05, with the anecdotes, stories and also some status updates on where we are heading.....
Hoping to see your comments and ideas for Mastishk'05.
It's a lazy sunday afternoon when I sit down to write the first blog of my life. Who am I? What am I doing here. To know more read on.
I am Aswin known as GAS to all my friends not because I give too much of global gyan(really??) but because of my initials(G.ASwin). So what is it that made me write this blog. I was a part of an event which transgressed all expectations and became such a huge success which even we didn't imagine was possible when it all began. Yes I am talking about Mastishk. What a journey it was.....from the moment Nikhil gave the presentation abt the online games event then called POT to the final courier which we posted to the prize winners. many sleepless nights, hours and hours of sitting in front of the computer, discussing(shld I say fighting) abt all the logical and technical issues that cropped up, that super slog which we did after the end of the first day... man those are the unforgettable moments of my NITIE life till now.That was the first time i was a part of something so succesful and acclaimed by one and all from the students in IIMA to a BSchool which has jus finished its first year. When we saw a college giving advertisements by saying one of their students won a prize in Mastishk that too in my game I felt like.....yaar I cant describe that feeling in words.
So what has happened to mastishk now? Why this blog has suddenly stopped functioning....Hmmm we were in a sort of Hibernation mode putting things in place for the next year's event to be a bigger and better one than the maiden attempt. Suraj,Anirban and yours truly have been selected as the event coordinators of Mastishk 2005 and the unenvious job of making it a success lies on our whole team of 15 members and the junior batch which will come in during the month of june.....So what has happened till now in Mastishk 2005? Wait for the next blog
