PROM NIGHT 2020: WHAT TO EXPECT?
2020-02-17 10:38:48

For the first time in the history of DWIT, The Artistas Club is organizing PROM NIGHT 2020. Prom is basically an event where people get to socialize, meet new people, dance, eat and enjoy. The event is going to take place at college premises on February 15th, Saturday. To know more about the Prom night, I had a talk with Aakancha Thapa, current president of The Artistas Club. Why did The ARTISTAS club decide to conduct Prom 2020? ‘The Prom 2020’ will be an event that highlights the main motive of our club, “Art as a stress reliever”. As our club promotes various kinds of art forms, this event is being organized to provide a platform for young and aspiring event managers to showcase and improve their management skills along with a goal to provide a break from a monotonous day-to-day routine. A lot of people are still confused about PROM Night. What can the attendees expect from the night can you please elaborate in detail ? Why should anyone not miss The Prom 2020 ? Through this event what we want to do is break the stereotype. Prom season is upon us and many girls and guys are building up the courage to ask out their crush! Prom night isn't just about dancing! There will be great food, a photo booth, maybe even a dessert table, cash and gift vouchers giveaways. So don't worry about having two left feet. Enjoy the atmosphere and focus on having a great night. You can't deny that getting dressed up for a night out is so much fun. Sure, the preparation can be a hassle, like finding the perfect dress and deciding on the perfect hairstyle, but when you're all done and you finally take a look in the mirror, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Plus, one of the best parts of prom is showing off how good you look! And who doesn't love a party? No one cares if you can't dance or if you come without a date. You are there to have one of the best nights ever. Life is short and you don't want to regret not going to prom. So let loose and have fun! So I request everyone to join us, enjoy the time with your friends, and make the night a memory that will last forever cause when you look back, you just don’t want to see yourself as a student who only attended the college lectures. Is the event only for DWIT students? No, this event is not only for the students. The company employees and the alumni members are also heartly welcome to join the night. Is there any dress code for the PROM ? And is it necessary to have a date for the prom ? There is no particular dress code but everyone is expected to be in formal /semi-formal attire. And no, there’s no necessity to have a date. Our main purpose is to bring new experiences, which means we will learn something new, understand different perspectives and engage other cultures. This is more like a socializing event, so everyone doesn’t need to come in pairs. What are the exciting events planned for the night ? The event includes snacks, soft drinks, batch-wise candle light dinner, ball dance, DJ, performances by the Students, exciting games like 5 quick questions about your partner/friend and paper dance followed by Prom King and Queen announcement. At last the program is scheduled to conclude with a cake cutting ceremony by the batch of 2019 as a gesture of love to our seniors. At what time is the event starting and how long is the event going to be ? And are the tickets for the Prom still available? The event is scheduled to begin from 2 PM onwards and will end at around 7 PM. Yes, the tickets are still available with the club members. So, if anyone wants to be a part of the romantic evening, you can contact The Artistas Club without hesitation. Was it hard for the club to handle the responsibilities of the Prom all by themselves? For the first time in college history, The Artistas club is organizing “The Prom 2020” so it is definitely going to need a strenuous effort. But since our club members are so conscientious, it’s not much of a pressure. Are other DWIT clubs collaborating with the Artistas to make the event successful? Yes, the Music Club has collaborated with The Artistas to sooth the evening with melodic performances. The Media Club is helping with the photo coverage and The Documentary Club has taken the responsibility for the visual filming. Lastly do you have any message for the attendees ? This is the right time to know each other more and build good bonding among the circles. Hence, keeping that in mind, this event invites everyone from the high school, college, alumni and also the company employees. I believe, socializing and attending events will help us enrich our life. We are so stuck in the tedious routine, that every once in awhile we need to shake it up a bit. Doing something new and having some new adventures, acquaintances, I bet that’s what “The Prom 2020” is all about. So, I encourage everyone to not miss this jovial event.

MY 4 YEARS AT DWIT
2020-02-17 10:37:34

DWIT, My Story! November 27, 2015 I got an email from Bijaya Shrestha Sir entitled “Welcome To SEM I - Batch 2019” and the class would begin from 30th of November. I was so fascinated, nervous, excited about the new journey I was about to be part of. I was so impressed by DWIT from my open-house session and being able to be part of this community was super exciting. November 30, 2015 I reached the college gate where I saw many new faces standing in line with me. The line was oriented by our senior who took us to our class. As the line moved on, the first day’s journey from gate to classroom number 203 felt amazing. I was enjoying every sight I could see. November 22, 2019 9:50 AM. We were wished all the best for our boards by our cloud computing teacher, Shambhu Khanal. That meant we had concluded the class and it marked the completion of lectures at Deerwalk. The class had never been so loud as it was then when everyone yelled “Thank You Sir” so loud. We were happy because every one of us had passed our undergraduate hurdle. Deep down the happiness, we also had a thick layer of sadness of having to leave the college. Emotions were flowing all over my nerves that day. From carrying my bag to checking out the college gate, I was occupied by emotions and some droplets of heavy tears that flashed back to my four years at Deerwalk. You guys might wonder why was the tear so heavy? So, let's roll on to the flashback! I still remember the first calculus class of semester one lectured by Surendra Pathak Sir. We were told to introduce ourselves. I was glad to meet all the unknown people I was surrounded with who are now an integral part of my life. First few weeks were so interesting as we were the newest batch and it's always the newest batch that gets attention from everyone. Coming to college at 8:50 AM and leaving the college at 7:00 PM in the evening, yes, that was life for us which we thoroughly enjoyed. We never felt like leaving college early. What kept me to the college that late was the bond among the seniors I had, the unlimited chat with classmates about literally everything, the college environment that blossomed throughout the day and many more. With all the enjoyment, we also started adapting ourselves to the pressure. Pressure in Deerwalk includes academic, assignment, ECA responsibilities, deadlines (the most). Now I realize, with all that pressure I faced, I am more of a matured person now. Apart from these, I enjoyed my club journey in DWIT as well which is a rollercoaster ride. I was brought up as an outspoken person, be it on stage or in social circle. With that ability of mine, I joined DeerExpress Club as my first club. Things were not so smooth for me, so I had to leave the club in the middle because of some misunderstanding. From leaving the DeerExpress Club in 2016 to being president of the club in 2018, I realized things that start bad always have a perfect ending. In my days, I always enjoyed organizing events like deerfest, deer utsav. I must say events like these in Deerwalk are cherry in cake; you get a chance to interact with seniors and juniors and they will be a part of your journey. I just don't have memories with 47 of my friends, I have memories with everyone who thought being in touch with me was not a bad choice. As I write long, I also want to say something about my batch, Class of 2019. Guys, we have come all this way. It is inevitable that we may not always have this kind of togetherness in the future. But remembering all the memories we had and at least smiling to that instant of flashback will be enough. We started this journey as individuals, we end this journey as being the most unified and entertaining batch of Deerwalk. I will remember being called “Canceeeerrrr”, I will remember being called “Guffadi/Jhapali”, I will remember the fights we had and each one of us, I will remember sleeping at class and being punched by Prakash Sir, I will remember all my seniors who treated me more like a family, I will remember each millisecond of my time at DWIT. When I saw my seniors graduating in every deer utsav, I always thought of graduating as early as possible. Now I only have some months for my graduation, I want the time not to pass any sooner. I don't want my green card to be a red one. But, I also remember the fact that nothing lasts forever and show must always go on! Lastly, thank you all for making it a wonderful journey. Each one you have a special place in my heart. Iris R Pokharel Batch of 2019

INTERVIEW: EXPERIENCE OF VIPASSANA MEDITATION
2020-02-17 10:35:55

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. To help us walk on the path of knowing Vipassana meditation more clearly we have Avina Nakarmi of Batch 2020 with us, who had taken this 10 day Vipassana meditation in December 2019. For starters who don't have knowledge of meditation or to be precise, Vipassana meditation, how would you like to introduce it to them and how is it different from other forms of meditation? Vipassana is a type of meditation in which Buddha himself rediscovered it. To be precise, it’s actually observing yourself, avoiding the external materialistic kind of stuffs and just looking into ourselves, our emotions, and our reality. With what I’m familiar with, other meditation usually involves a lot of chantings and you can even see at Pashupati where people play loud Bhajans and dance and meditate there. Instead of concentrating within yourself, you’re concentrating on external factors but in vipassana, you look into yourself, and the things you’ve experienced. While meditating, you learn more about yourself and you feel new sensation. Why did you take Vipassana meditation course? You know the schedule of Deerwalk, classes start from early morning and ends in the late evening, internships and everything plus we had additional projects during 5th-6th semester. So it was kind of hectic to keep up, there was just so much going on. After all my deadlines, I was free at that moment and I thought it would be helpful if I went to Vipassana meditation, in order to reduce the amount of stress that had built up. How did you come to know about Vipassana meditation? Were you encouraged or influenced by someone into taking it? Actually, during my teenage time, my cousins used to go for Vipassana meditation but at that time, I couldn't go. It had quite slipped my mind after that but recently our Image Processing sir, Sarbin Sayami had taken this course and he shared his experience with us which motivated me into taking it. They say that taking Vipassana meditation is not an easy task as it requires a lot of determination, how well did you cope up with it? To be honest, the first few days were really hard. The routine included waking up at 4-4:30 A.M then heading out for straight 2 hours of meditation. The breakfast would be casual boiled healthy foods but even the simple food would taste extremely good and awaited after the intense 2 hours meditation. The major difficulty I faced was to sit erect without any support continuously for 3-4 hours while meditating as I was used to sitting on chairs with support. We were only allowed to go out 2-3 times. There was the system of early sleep so we had to go to bed at sharp 9 P.M, the first few days I couldn't fall asleep at all because it wasn’t my usual routine. But after 4-5 days, I got used to it. Vipassana meditation is a universal remedy for universal ill, what is your say in this? Can you relate it with your experience? I can’t relate it with myself because I haven’t been through the stage where I felt very low in my life but I've heard stories of people who went through severe depression and physical illness like diabetes and after taking vipassana course they felt relief to some extent and some of them were even cured wholly. While I was researching about Vipassana meditation, somewhere I found that after vipassana course few individuals fell into depression because vipassana course walks you through the path of isolation in order to reflect within yourself and as a result, it resurfaces the trauma an individual had felt before in his/her lifetime. What is your view on this? When we are isolated it’s normal for many thoughts to resurface, which tends people to get sad and depressed but that’s why the teachers are there, they are so friendly and they will make you feel comfortable so you can express yourself to them. The trauma, you relieve it for a while and then you start to accept it, whatever happened, it happened in the past and it’s gone now. You’ll realize that everything is just a phase. And once you get used to that, every sadness or any extreme feeling like excitement, fear will be just a phase, a phase that will go away so you don’t tend to cling on stuff anymore. How can we join this course? If you’re interested, you can fill out the form at City office, Jamal. It’s situated near the Honda showroom. There they give you a pamphlet and ask you to go through it before filling the form. You must have strong determination and will power for it as you’ll be going for 10 days where you can’t use your phone or any other devices, the communication will be limited with the teachers only. Before leaving for the meditation there will be a small orientation session where you have one to one conversation with the Guruba and Guruaama; what they tend to do is they ask you whether you’re fully determined to join this or not, if not then you shouldn't join as it is a hard course. What changes have you felt after practicing Vipassana meditation? You won’t feel the changes instantly, but eventually you’ll feel more relaxed. The fear, jitters, and nervousness I used to feel while interacting with people, I've learned to control it now. I feel calmer after having taken Vipassana meditation. Would you recommend Vipassana meditation to others? Yes, I totally recommend it to others. But I also recommend people to go with full determination so that you won’t have to leave it in the middle. You will witness the positive changes in your life after practicing vipassana meditation. The journey is not easy but the fruit of this meditation is so worth it
