The Fresher’s Party concept may be an age old cliché, where the norm is usually loud music (of not-so-great quality), overcrowded dance floors and all-black, lesser-the-better dress-code... but this is one of the clichés that we never get tired of! Even at the ripe old age of 92 (at last I have caught up with Prantosh Banerjee, our super-awesome marketing prof), I still took the pain to dress myself up and look as hot as possible (believe me it was hard work!), danced till my legs were about to give in and tried to loosen up in order to keep up with the drunkards who completely let themselves go! The theme was “Pirates of the Caribbean”, and with a black eye patch and the to-hell-with-the-world attitude, we weren’t too bad!!

The juniors were supposed to ask out the seniors for the big night and the build-up to the Fresher’s was uncannily similar to our WAC cases-
a) Objective: Find HOT date for Fresher’s Party
b) Problem Statement:
1. Don’t know too many seniors
2. The good ones are already booked
c) Alternatives:
1. Network with seniors in the hostel begging them to introduce us to their most eligible friends
2. Scan the seniors’ profiles on orkut and eliminate the ones we do not fancy.
3. Hang around the cafeteria or Sweety Stores, eyes wondering desperately trying to spot somebody pleasant and not-so-weird (by now “HOT” is no longer the qualifying criteria: just “decent” will do)
4. Frenzied phone calls to strangers only to find out that they have already been booked)
5. Go back to elimination list (alternative 2) in sheer desperation and randomly choose people the night before D-day, only to get a smug reply, “I am sorry, but I am going with So-and-So”.
d) Implementation Plan: Go stag with your best friends and have the time of your life!

Even after all that jazz, the romance goes on…
