PAF OC speaks: Nitai

1. How were the PAF OCs decided?
“Abey! Interview le raha hai ki ground work kar raha hai?”. Hostel fourthies and fifthies came together and elected the OCs.
2. How were the PAF teams decided, what all things happened?
There was a meet to decide the PAF teams. 2, 9, 10 decided to be together and 4, 6 decided to be together, but h8 was lagging in deciding . Initially teams were formed with 8, 11, 13, 7 in one team. 3, 5 were in one team and due to some reasons they didn’t want to be together. There was a appeal for reforming the teams and then 3 took 11 on their side. Finally our PAF team was formed with 7,5 and Tansa. It is a good enough team.
3. Why didn’t we have any plans of our team beforehand?
It was due to delay on our side in making PAF teams. There should have been a PAF meet with hostel seniors to decide the teams, which wasn’t done. So when they went to the meet they were caught by surprise.
4. No girls hostel this time too. Is there a chance of getting one in future years at least?
“Haan bilkul, kyun nahi, chance to hai”. But the thing is: H10 is jinxed, no team with H10 ever won the PAF, H11 is useless. So we are better off without them. “Par haan bache kam aate hain”.
5. What is the role of h8 in this PAF?
H8 is contributing more in each and everything: FA+PROD+SCRIPT. Work is fast. Enthu in music is a bit on the low side.Choreo is also good.
6. 5 and 8 both got positions in Goonj, so can we expect GOD music?
We have a very good team. But, work started late. Though they will definitely do good : 5 and Sathe. Special mention to Uttam Subodh and Nisar.
7. Any message to secys?

I will be there in your GBM and ask all of you what you did for PAF.
8. How will be the 4 days before in OAT?
During the four days time runs fast. It’s fun time, even people not involved come to see. We need a lot of people. In the four days we will mostly be building upon stuff already done. Lots of work, food rasna. Practices will be going on everywhere and you get to involve in everything. The four days are really electrifying, adrenal pumping and tub thumping. We live, sleep and eat there. Music people practice so music on all the time.
9. What is your view on last year’s PAF?
Last year’s PAF was very good. Our contribution was good but we didn’t lead the PAF as such. Brains of both H8 and H13 went together to make it so. We had a lot of long meetings in H2. We are the defending champions now. We need to keep the spirit high and maintain the stature. There’s pressure on us and the competition is tough.
10. Can you give a brief preview of PAF this year?
Our PAF is an inspirational story of an important personality in India. There’s a part which the audience will relate and there is a part which will be astonishing, filled with things they weren’t aware of and these would change their perspective. This would be an entertaining, thrilling and fun-filled PAF.

PAF OC speaks: Mitesh

1. How were the PAF OCs decided?
All the passing out junta were called for a meet. Elections were held amongst us. Me and NItai were elected.
2. How was the PAF team decided?
Based on Cult GC standing, all the hostels were divided into 3 groups-A, B and C. A team can be formed from either ABB or ABCC.Frankly speaking (shayad junta ko bura lagega) we were not a position of demanding. We did not have any leverage. Initially, 3 and 5 got placed into a team, but due to some differences last year they didn’t want to be together. And so, teams had to be formed again. And finally, 5, 7, 8, & Tansa made into a team.
3. What can we expect from the Music dept. of PAF since both H8 and H7 bagged good positions in Goonj?
See, Goonj result doesn’t matter. However, music will be very good this time. Sathe put in lot of efforts.
4. Ours was the winning PAF last year. Did that put overload on you?
See, last year there were two people who could direct the entire PAF. Now its more like a collaborative effort. Everybody could pitch in their ideas. Its more fun now.
5.Are we ever going to get a bandi hostel?

Haan yaar 3 saal ho gaye. Lets hope ki we might get next year.

Sattu: Milna bhi nahi chahiye. Kaam kartha hi nahi.
Saurabh: Kartha hai yaar.
6.How is the day of PAF going to be?
Insanely busy yaar.
Ankit: Right now, we’re in a good shape.
Mitesh: We’ll be able to complete everything in time. The prod is less compared to last year but it is challenging this time. Par train wala toh sabse badha tha.
Vijay: Train wala? Awesome tha yaar. Biggest thing I’ve ever seen in a PAF.
Mitesh: If we put up a good show, it’ll be because of H8.
7. Your advice to sophies and freshies?
Some secys are working. But no one is taking up responsibility yaar. And some of them are not working at all.
Saurabh: Jab tak sophies mein enthu nahi hoga kuch nahi banne waale he.
Mitesh: Hamare time pe khud log aate the. Hum call karte the seniors ko ki kaam dedo karke.
Sattu: Mujhe sirf ek baar bulaya tha. Fir bulane nahi pade.
And then, the conversation digressed into secys impeachment talk and then about the “good old days”.
