Welcome to alfaaz!
Alfaaz, the annual literary festival of IIT Guwahati, is a marked event which provides a platform for the cream of the students from the top notch colleges of our country to come together so that their talents can be showcased, appreciated and applauded. Alfaaz is all about the people who make it happen. Totally funded by IIT Guwahati itself, the Alfaaz is an all-students venture. Now in its second year, Alfaaz incorporates many simulating real life scenarios and situations, may they be in the boardroom or, with the event, The Budget, in the chair of the finance minister. It will give participants a large pool of events, all requiring a diverse range of skills, to choose from. The center piece events will be a panel discussion glistening with eminent panelists from all over the country, a National Debate and the Budget. Guwahati, being one of the remote corners of the country, this event goes a long way to bring into the limelight its problems of insurgency. Media representatives will be present throughout the tenure of the event to capture the process where the young intelligentsia of this nation would be brainstorming to bring solutions to today’s political, economic and social concerns.
n the middle of the night, when the city sleeps cuddled up in the warmth of loving homes, many innocent lives await a dawn in the scary chill of an indifferent night engulfing their naked bodies. Beyond the walls of our homes exists yet another world, a world of tough choices, lonely night and scary sights. Here to survive each passing moment, a little bit of you has to die. “Because we choose to light a candle instead of cursing the dark.” People see things and say why? But we dream things that never were and say why not? The students of IIT Guwahati have begun this very promising venture, We Care, so that we can help the children who have been long ignored by the rest of the world. The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
