Why did the acid cross the road?

While this question may seem a bit absurd to use as a title, we promise you, at the end of this article, you’ll be able to answer this on your own. But before that, let’s talk about waste,and no, this is not going to be another article on sanitation. What we are going to talk about is disposal of waste generated in laboratories and research lab. Doesn’t sound interesting enough? Wait till you know what we went through in certain laboratories.

Senior Survey

 

It’s that time of the year again when we say our goodbyes, a lot of them indeed. Some to our batch-mates who would be graduating and even more to our beloved seniors. BSP took a survey of the graduating class of 2017 to find out, for perhaps the last time before they’re out into the world, how they reflect upon their last four to five years of their lives spent at IITD.

Read on to find out more about what the one that leaves has to say!

These boards form the mediators, the facilitators and arbitrator between the students and the administration. Another year, another semester but the same old General Secretaries. With half their tenure over, let us see how much they squirm under the microscope.
