The Winds of Change

Feb 2013

Page 2: Pinnacle 5th Edition

Editor’s Note Dear Readers! We, joyfully, welcome you all to yet another edition of The Pinnacle.

The semester has already ended and our dear PNEC geeks are gearing themselves up for the dreadful upcoming result day. We have reached that time of the year when passing the semester with good grades is all that any PNECian can wish and pray for! Undoubted-ly, our team could not have chosen a better date for the publishing of this new edition.

It’s been a semester since the freshmen’012 have joined the PNEC family. We see cheer-ful and satisfied faces. We hear almost no complaints. There was a time when the fresh-men, in their initial days, used to find ways of getting rid of PNEC. Now, it is a time when the freshmen are actually enjoying every bit of their ‘university life’. Yes, the winds at PNEC have taken a completely new direction and it is certainly a positive one.

The last edition’s editorial words “got to fight for your right to party” were taken pretty much seriously. We actually saw people ‘partying’ and the consequences were thankfully not as harsh as they were expected to be. With uncountable rules, which PNECIANS hardly follow, our Admin has now come up with a few new ones. The Pinnacle really appreciates the genuine efforts of the PNEC Admin but these heavy ‘fines’ cannot really stop our en-thusiastic lot from making big records. The Admin should think about molding itself a little according to the new weather.

In this edition, you will find reasons of realizing how true, at heart, a PNECIAN you actually are. You will see how a society is related to its president, how the Freshmen’012 were wel-comed and how PNEC represented itself at various places. Also, this edition is different from the rest in its own way.

Change is always good. With so many changes around and within the boundaries of PNEC, The Pinnacle is also different this time. The difference will be revealed as the readers will flip through the pages of this new edition.

The Pinnacle, being a tiny dream of a few people, will now be seen in the eyes of others. Walt Disney quoted: “All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.” The Pinnacle’s existence and success transformed this dream into a reality. We see it becoming a regular thing; something that everyone at PNEC knows about and looks for-ward to.

This edition, hopefully, will be again a huge treat for our followers. It is you people who have made it what it is today. We wish that The Pinnacle actually reaches the PINNACLE.

Happy Reading!

O n Monday, ECCS (the Educational and Community Service Society) and NASR (NUST Association for Sports and Rec-reation) collaborated to present the ‘Shughal Mela’ along

with a Marathon Race for the boys and a Spoon Race for the girls. Plans were also made for the screening of the Pakistan vs India warm-up match in the Jauhar Auditorium but, well, the cable wala turned out to be a ditcher. In comparison to Friday’s event, attend-ances dwindled, but the reading on the fun-meter stayed the same, as an overwhelming response to the marathon was fol-lowed by the Bake Sale, the water-balloon fights, and the sponta-neous dance show that some high profile prisoners (Read: Society Heads) had to put on to get out of the ‘Jail’ set up by ECCS. Crazy, crazy days.

T he various student societies at PNEC, NUST’s chapter in Karachi, were in for a shock on Monday, 17th Sep, when they were told by the admin to commemorate the Freshers’ Week from Wednesday. Panic ensued as the actual plan to kick off the week was at a date no sooner than two weeks ahead of the said Monday. Event proposals

were exchanged, emergency meetings were held, phone calls were made, and in a flurry of activity, the schedule for the whole week was laid out, ready to be executed. Kudos to the societies! Job well done.


T he opening ceremony of the Fresher’s Week was held in the Jauhar Auditorium and was organized by the newly formed Freshmen Friendly PNEC.

Titled the ‘Ice-Breaking Session’, the curtain-raiser ac-quainted the freshmen with the societies at PNEC, with the respective heads of IEEE, MACS, ECCS, APSS and AIR briefing them shortly about the areas each society covers and its activities. An encouraging step taken by the senior students at PNEC. Keep up the good work.


I EEE were supposed to kick the week off on Thurs-day , but Karachi’s unstable political situation meant that the day’s events had to be postponed. AIR had

been allotted Friday and they came forward with their usual professionalism to organize what they dubbed the ‘Friday Funda’. Games like Thumb-Wrestling and Water-sliding were played and Waqas Sohail of A.L.I.V.E., a youth activist organization, was also invited to lecture the par-ticipants with the focus remaining on increasing the youngster’s concentration and team-working abilities. A worthy kick-off.

T he charity-raising and sports events were a wacky prelude to the professional (or maybe not) Quiz organized

by APSS the next day. The Jauhar Audi was full of raised hands as an APSS spokesman asked the students

super-easy questions. Those who answered were sorted into three teams which then competed against each

other through three rounds of challenging (or maybe not) questions and the winning team ran away with some com-

fortable prizes. There was also a flimsy dance performance by a talented (or maybe not) freshie, making the crowd

go obscenely wild, and resulting in some vulgar catcalls. Not cool, PNEC. Not cool.


I t was with understandable reluctance then, that after the quiz, the MACS Dramatics Division pre-sented their play ‘Bibi, Ye PNEC Hai’, which had been scripted especially to acquaint the Freshies with the social norms and activities at PNEC. The scares of a repeat of the Summer Festival deba-

cle were quelled however, as the boorish mob turned into a surprisingly approving audience once the theatrics began. They laughed, along with the actors, as the latter pulled off an entertaining perfor-mance with witty punches and unscripted insults (because some of them forgot the script). A change for the good!

T he PNEC AIR membership numbers experi-

enced a huge boost when it was announced

that a beach-trip was being arranged for the

society’s members. Besides being a successful public-

ity stunt for AIR, the trip itself was a day well spent

for the picnickers, as they sang loudly on their way to

the heavenly Nathia Gali, breakfasted on the roof of a

bus (ladies included!), took part in some lively activities

in the beautiful weather and had a great time wres-

tling the strong waves on the rocky beach. A Sunday

to remember.


T he football lovers at PNEC put on their socks and boots as the intra-college Futsal

Tournament kicked off with the start of October. Almost a dozen teams registered

with an equally enthusiastic response from all semesters. The tournament moved

smoothly from the first stage into the super-sixes after some upsets and a few thrillers.

It was here though that the competition encountered an unfortunate situation which re-

sulted in a team being controversially disqualified. The tournament will go on, however,

with the semifinals set to be contested between the four remaining teams in the tourna-



P NEC also hosted the 2nd IEEE Karachi Section Stu-

dent Congress on the fourth of October. Teams

from several other branches of the Karachi section

took part in the competitions held at the conference. The

competitions and the annual awards were unsurprisingly

dominated by IEEE PNEC which picked up the Outstanding

IEEE Student Branch and the Best IEEE Student Branch

Website awards, while Zain Gill and Iqra Sajid were anointed

as the Outstanding IEEE and WIE Volunteers respectively.

Team PNEC, comprising of Salar Javaid, Asim Ahmed,

Hammad Saleem and Saadi Aziz, also won the Ethics Com-

petition. Rock on, boys and gals!

P NEC is home to the weirdest of traditions when it comes to college-specific norms. So, when the female seniors

held a girl-exclusive welcome party for the newly arrived batch of ‘16 in the GCR, you would hardly be surprised

to hear that the expenses for the said party were sustained by the fresh-women themselves! Sandwiched be-

tween the two-way introductions and the singing and chatting sessions, the fuel and the food for the party (i.e. the

burgers, drinks and dessert) had to be arranged by the poor little girls, who have already so much to adapt to in their

start to life at PNEC. Don’t worry, though, young ladies. Consider this an investment into your P.R. accounts.

Ye shalt be repaid. ;)


H istory changed course when the EME Olympiad

saw a team from NUST’s Karachi campus partici-

pating for the first time this year. PNEC’s 15-

member team had to travel for a whopping 26 hours to

reach their destination where they were competing in 13

(yes, you read that right!) different categories. Although

they could not make an impact in any of the competitions,

but after losing out in all events, the team made the trip

worthwhile by continuing their journey to Patriata where

they celebrated their unprecedented achievements (if



T he girls at PNEC may be few in quantity, but there is no way you can doubt the worth and metal

of the female contingent at the college. Besides consistently proving their excellence in academ-

ics, they also keep winning regular accolades for PNEC at different competitions. Hence was the

story of the debating contest held at the main campus of FAST-NU this past month. PNEC sent two

teams to the competition; one comprising of civilians namely Umm-e-Aiman and Ammarah Tanveer, and

the other constituting S/Lt.s Mudassir and Daud. Felicitations are in order for the ladies, who gave a

bright performance at the event and managed to bring back a consolation prize for the college. Cheers!

O ne genre of national competitions that

PNECians have not been particularly good

at are those that concern Robotics. Onib

Nasir, M Usman Yousaf, Bilal Gauhar, Aamir

Sheikh and Osama Amjad were therefore, part

of a team on a mission, which went to the CASE

RoboSprint 2012. Their robot, stylishly named

Omni-Droid, with Mecanum wheels and pneumatic

systems as its outstanding features, led them to

the quarter-finals making them the first team

from PNEC to have reached the last eight of a

national robotics competition. They also became

the first team to introduce pneumatic systems at

a national robotics competition, and deservingly

won the Performance Award at the event. Kudos,

lads! You have made PNEC proud.

T eam PNEC made their presence felt at Zabmun 2012, a three day affair involving rigorous exercises in global

diplomacy, heavy handed talks and hectic committee session. Made up of Asadullah Qureshi, Ahsan Pasha,

Wasiq Ghani, Saad Saud Mirza, Azfar

Wasim, Yasir Sharif and Sobia Feroz (all sopho-

mores or freshmen), the team represented the

Czech Republic at the event and did very well in

their respective committees even though it was

their first MUN experience for the most part.

The team managed to bag the Best Stall Award

at the Global Village among other such accolades

and were generally the life of the party, giving a

memorable dance performance on the first

day. Way to prove we are more than just nerds

and geeks, people.

there are almost a dozen societies in your college, but you only know about the existence of three.

your teachers punish you for being late to class by making you treat your whole class with samosas.

upon hearing that your media society is planning a huge concert, you LOL. Literally.

you’re a Karachiite, and you have an acute inferiority complex towards NEDians, even though your uni is actually better than theirs.

your tennis court hardly ever hosts tennis matches, but sees every other sport including cricket, football, throw-ball and even water-fights!

once every year, you enter the computer lab to find it full with desperate people praying to God, and hastily check-ing and refreshing the PNEC portal. Yes, its Result Day.

you just know it, because your clothes, your body, your mind and your SOUL says so ;)

T aking into account, its’ quite hum-ble beginnings, the ‘Pinnacle’ has been able to achieve a lot in a

small course of time. When Rida Shazli, one of the pioneers of the newsletter and the former editor-in-chief, began work-ing on this idea from a scratch, she had very few to help her in the task. The goal was to alter the way the people see and perceive things at PNEC. It was an im-mense challenge for the team. Presenting the irony of what takes place at PNEC everyday was not an easy thing to do, but Rida and Co. did it effectively and quite brilliantly. Since its inception, Pinnacle has been covering all the important events, the good things and the bad things (okay, maybe not) happening at PNEC. It has given a platform to the students to ex-press themselves and made many devel-op a light-hearted perspective about the college. Undoubtedly, Rida Shazli and her colleagues have created a legacy with Pinnacle.

The Pinnacle - Feb 2013 11


Hence, when the twilight of her era at PNEC arrived for Rida, she had to choose a worthy successor to herself. With the belief that someone with a zeal for change and a witty sense of humor should lead the ‘Pinnacle’, the duties of the editor-in-chief are now being passed on to Ali Qamber. A new era begins, with new challenges accompanying it. Con-cerning his vast experiences with publi-cations in his schooling and with the ‘Pinnacle’, Ali can be deemed fit to stand up to this challenge. This issue, which is Ali’s debut as an editor, will be an indica-tor of the things to come at Pinnacle. The readers will acknowledge that the level of entertainment and the concept of bring-ing something worth reading have been maintained as the new editor walks in the coveted footsteps of Rida and others. One can only hope he is able to take the ‘Pinnacle’ to even greater heights.

To Rida: We thank you for all that you’ve done for the Pinnacle, and

To Ali: All the very best!

H aving been a part of IEEE PNEC since the first semester, Onib Nasir has served the society as stoutly as any other have. Here, Onib tells us about his work and dedication towards IEEE and how he has taken the society ahead. Pinnacle’s Zohaib Shahid recently caught up with Onib Nasir of Sem

VII - EL, also the President of IEEE’s student branch at PNEC. ZS Hello, Onib. For starters, I’d like to ask why you chose IEEE over the other societies functioning at PNEC? ON: At the time that I started volunteering, IEEE was the only soci-ety with a systematic and established framework. Since then, many societies have emerged at PNEC. I have been a part of them too, but IEEE has retained her supremacy in terms of the profes-sional methodology with which it works. Another prominent reason was that IEEE was the society that linked my field to extra-curriculars and hence, would continue to provide me with benefits even after my graduation.

ZS: What does IEEE mean to you? ON: IEEE is about keeping yourself up to date with all the latest technological innovations and happenings. It has been providing me with the necessary research tools for this purpose. IEEE has allowed me to create a professional network before graduating, which will come in handy when I'll be looking for a job. As a whole, IEEE has been a pathway to improving PNEC for its’ students and portraying a positive image of the college in front of other univer-sities. We have, Alhamdolillah, been very successful in that re-gards, as IEEE PNEC is renowned all across Pakistan as a very vibrant student branch.

ZS: How have you taken IEEE forward in your tenure as the president of the society? ON: The most challenging task for me was to carry on the work started by Rabia and Bilal during their tenure. As my term comes to an end, I am, Alhamdolillah, satisfied by the progress of IEEE. My focus has been on creating a legacy from which students can benefit even after I leave. The tech magazine ‘Perspective’ is a part of our efforts, which not only provides a platform for students of PNEC to exhibit their marvelous work but also help other students who are interested in similar projects. Organizing the IEEE Karachi Section Student Congress with a splendid turnout was very gratifying. There have been oth-er similar initiatives during the past year, which had an online presence. Our projects, event and ventures

Page 13: Pinnacle 5th Edition

The Pinnacle - Feb 2013 13

Features have enabled us to create a vast audience across the world and people from different countries like Sweden, England, Brazil etc. have been appreciating our work.

ZS: Where do you see IEEE in the future? ON: IEEE should step forward to establish corporate relations with the industry and form the linkage on which we have already been working. Bonding with the corporate sector is of immense importance for all the students of the university and although this is not among the society objectives, I still feel IEEE should fill this vacuum. IEEE should also focus on making a network for alumni and keep inviting them on a regular basis to the college. It should be the society’s aim to promote technological innovation through the means of various events and workshops.

ZS: How have you managed to maintain the balance between society-work and academics? ON: Time management! We need to prioritize the things we really want to achieve and have an impact upon. Since becoming an active part of societies, I have had to sacrifice a lot of things for e.g. I used to watch every kind of sports before but now I hardly get any time to do so. We need to be determined to do what we are doing. There may be times when people point out that all of it is useless, but you have to believe in yourself.

ZS: What kind of society-collaborations have you worked on, and how successful are they generally? ON: I have been a part of couple of society collaborations. Working with other societies has been a good experience and has always been beneficial for the students. I believe the society -heads should focus on more collaborations and also understand that all the societies functioning at PNEC have the same objec-tive – the college’s betterment. Once we understand that, no society will consider the others as its rivals.

ZS: a final message for all you juniors? ON: PNEC is a great place. Trust me when I say that. All it lacks is its students owning the place. When I look around, I find most people whining about the bad stuff and comparing it to other institutes instead of doing something about it. What other institutes possess are students who have taken the initiative and organized various events. After having visited almost all of Pakistan’s biggest universities, I can assure you that organizing an event in PNEC is not as cumbersome as in other universities. Hence, I ask the juniors to start owning this place, taking initiatives, and carrying on the work that we have started here at PNEC.

We thank Onib for his time, and wish him and IEEE PNEC all the best for the future!

To put it simply; ragging is a rite of passage. To truly enjoy univer-sity life one must first step into KK (you’ll soon find out about that) at any given time of the day and wait for a senior to notice you.
