DHWANI N CET SUCKS

Dhwani, the inter collegiate cultural fest conducted by CET was notable by its immense number of participants and vareity of the programs dished out. But, Its 'sad but true' that the Dhwani organisers were a bunch of losers...especially the main convenor Deepak benny.... here is a man whose main job is to help out and guide the participants... but this guy was the perfect xample of how an event organiser shud never behave like.... he created one or othr problem with almost all the rock bands which came to play thrr.... first of all, he had a tiff with 'Stoneage' and 'K.OS', saying tht 2 bands from one college are not allowed... he was talking at length about how he go only according to the rule book... then, y did they bend the rules by not going for a prelims round?.... He told that there would be some problems with the points distributuon to our college if he allowed both of us to play. But we said-'man, we don't want your points. We just want to perform. Don't award our college any points even if we win any prizes'. Still, he remained 'like a stone', sticking to his stand. We even thought of boycotting Dhwani and after several rounds of negotiations, in which our college team leader Sabareesh played a stellar role, they allowed us to play....

Their next target was soulburn...the band comprising of members from CET, Law colege and MBT... here, the bloody rule they put forward was that all members of the band should be from same collegee...c'mon man, is this a ballet troupe or something...a rock band happens wen a group of men sharing some common ideologies and attitudes join together... we don't team up as a band after asking-'dude, which college are u from'.... for a band, even language or country barriers doesn't matter...bcos we speak the language of music... this is an age when even indian and pakistani men jam together and form bands.... so, our respected CETian was there insisting on all us to be from the same college.....i felt like kicking the pulp outta his a** at that moment... Then he came with his friends and asked Arjun,the guitarist of Soulburn[a CETian himself] . ..''do u want to play''...in a threatening voice, as if arjun's there to kill somebody... Why don't these guys just understand that we all came there to help to make their own show a grand success? Instead, they beahved to us like we were their arch enemies. Atlast, they disqualified 'soulburn'. They played in the end, not as part of the competition...Ok, now i thought its all over...

But, more was to come on the last day... RAGE, the best rock band ever to come out of Trivandrum started the proceedings of the evening. Before that we had to endure a 'boring-like-hell' valedictory function, punctuated with some rubbish speeches. Now, Rage were rocking the capacity crowd out there. We, the rockers, were in the mood, banging our heads and screaming. But the CETians themselves were hell bent on spoling the spirit by singing 'Thithithaara Thithithey' and screams of 'stop it ****** '....Have u ever seen anywhere this rare scene of the hosts themselves insulting the guests? And to top it all, they allowed RAGE to play only 4 songs. Here was a band playing the metal anthems just like the original versions and rocking the whole crowd, but the organisers just wanted to stop the show. I raise both my middle fingers to them....DHWANI AND CET SUCKSSSSSSSSS....

Now i know, why this festival didn't happen for the last 2 years...Now I know, why strings din't come... This guy might have asked them their id cards. Maybe disqualified them because they weren't from the same college... KEEP UP THE SPIRIT CETians....U SUCK BIGTIMEEEEE.....As a kind of protest we all wore our participation cards just above our pant zippers....I think u all got what we meant by that, right?...Hope things clear up the next year and may the truth dawn up on the bloody head of the filthy organisers.....I RAISE BOTH MY MIDDLE FINGERS AGAIN...........DHWANIIIIIIIIIIIII...OH DHWANIIIIIIIIII....U SUCKKKKKKKKKKK

NB- I removed certain parts of this article after my good friends objected to the explicit language. I vow that i would never use too much explicit language in my future blog posts.[But i still do reserve myself the liberty to use an occcasional explicit word so that i could convey how much i feel about a particular issue]

Plainly speaking,either u are a very biased person or u r really outta ur mind. Does the success of an event like Dhwani depend on Rock, Rock and fucking Rock alone? There are lots of things which decide the success of an event like this. I'm sorry u could not understand all that. As for Deepak Benny, he's the only one among the main convenors who has really toiled his heart out for this event and from what u said, i could fine no fault whatsoever with his judgement. Simply speaking, where would they add the points if your band got first place? U too retarded to think about even that? So i suggest u get ur brain tested and start thinking with reason. Bye.

Well mr anonymous ... URe the one whose biased ... its these small small things which contribute and make the fest a success ... And we were only subjected to the tortures while trying out for the Rock syndrome , but by the looks of the organisation im sure every event wouldave been like this... Those volunteers need to be taught manners... The dialogues they spurted out ... I expected better Standards from CETians ... And when ure raising ur voice why be anonymous...And about ur main conviener ... It wouldave been true that he might have toiled his heart out but in the end he spoilt it all with his Atrocious manners !! And about bands ... Unless ure in a band u wouldnt know how hard it is to find people who shares musical tastes ... So unless ure in a band and u know the difficulties...shut the hell up before u make stupid comments... Thanks Stoneage and K.OS....ur support was amazing ... Yall Rock

12:58 AM

Seems you being too much frustrasted on Dhwani..Keep it cool..Its easy to spell something bad, especially when u r on the other side. The pain of organizing is something different. If u r a convener of an event like Dhwani, and after month of toil if somebody gives a comment like this, it really hurts not to the convener alone but to entire group of people for whom Dhwani was more than an event. And the point u raised was bad, 'ROCK', that seems awkard. Just an advice wearing a positive attitude to anything in life, will always count. Dont feel something is bad only because a group of people didnt enjoy it...

"... for a band, even language or country barriers doesn't matter...bcos we speak the language of music..."

so rightly said!

& dint know abt all these stuff that happened...
*biggg sighhh*

...hmmm, censoring explicit content? now, art can neva b obscene, rt.

>> anonymous
is it 'coz u speak for the "truth" that u r even ashamed to show ur face??

& i add all that anand has said.

6:31 PM

@anonymous..
u asked, whr would they add our points, ritee?
tht guy asked the same question to us...and we told...'man, plz don give our college any points even if we win. we just want to perform'..thts the spirit with which we came there....and the guy din't agree to even thiss....and never did he behave to us in a pleasant manner..is tht wat u xpect from the organiser of an event of such magnitude?...and the success of an event doesn't depend on rock..i neva said thtt...but, if a single event itself had so many probs, then i can well imagine wat all might hav happened with the other events.....
plz learn to admit ur mistakes...amd learn from that...nxt yr u can really do better if u r ready to rectify thosee....and pls don make thtt benny the main convenor again....he sucks big time...
and i do hav a doubt thtt this anonymous maybe benny himself....
if u hav the courage post under ur own name...and shed tht anonymous tag

@arjun...we'll always thr be with u...rock rulzzzzz

@naveen
yeah...these kind of things do happen....i wrote this here bcos they could understand wt their shortcomings are and be better the nxt time around

@kartoos..
considering urs and othr frnd's requests, i deletd ceratin parts of this post...thnks for guiding me into the right path...he hee

@anand...tht was a perfect reply to mr.anonymous.....

@sundevil..
bcos we had a positive attitude, we still were ready to play in the right spirit after we were subjected to so many insults...remember dhwani is not the 1st fest we are coming to..we hav seen and performed at bigger as well as smaller fests....
just bcos ur fest is of grand scale, u needn't behave in a bad manner to the participants....u said tht this comments willl hurt the organisers...then just imagine how hurt we wer wen we wer told tht we cannot play at dhwani..aftr spending days breaking sweat at prctis sessions and taking the pain to come thrr.....

@akhil...
art can be obscene, wen its fighting for a just cause...he heeee

The blog was true ... Dhwani failed to live upto its expectations. It was probably the most eargerly waited for event. But in the end it turned out to be a damp squib. The orgaisation was a disaster. The first day registration itself was a horror story. Events began at 11 and the registration desk still wasnt working. And even the pro-nite turned out to be a huge disaster. I myself being a victim of the sound system not havin a bloody filter hence stupid FM radio being heard over the stupid amps instead of my guitarin. And we had one decent song in ous set and we had to walk off stage just before the only part i really wanted to play, the guitar solo at the end. Everyone was pretty much dissapointed with the standards of Dhwani.

9:55 PM

Dude you did the right thing...and kudos to the spirit of you guys...

To anony: Dude! I know what its like to organise an event and I am bloody sure the CET organisers have never felt the pressure or crisis situations as that we have faced (apart from that u have created for urself by stepping in on shit!)
These CET guys get a shit load of money by just sitting pretty and all they have to do is channelise this properly and coordinate the event in a good manner...
On the otherhand we had to beg,borrow and steal to get money...
Fight with our Principal and Faculty over the attendance and sessionals(we didnt get brownie points) while we missed classes for coordinating the events...
We had to canvass people to come to our college which is a wee bit off the nearest town which is a wee bit off the city...
Still we did a great job...every single time...sure there were qualms...but we almost always made the guests feel at home...and I hope our juniors are also doing a fairly nice job...
Its tough to be an organiser...u need to know where to bend your back and where to draw the line...If you can't, then don't take on the responsibility for God's sake and screw up!
And have a spine to give your name...

10:57 PM

Lotta great reasons to say that DHWANI SUCKED BIG TIME!

starting from the bloody website wch at frst looked as if some1 went thru the webster's to find the toughest words and then wrote the 1st page. Fortunatly pattar jayram had the brains to change it at the last moment. Then came the day of registration........ man it was horrbile, not a single person knew what to do and all the info i got was " ths system was made by a guy whu got into MICROSFT, and he's not here". Well if u dnt knw to use it why have it???

Then came the f***in evnt registration, where all ppl shd be presnt to reg for a grp event, fortunatly the org's had the brains to let go of such stupid rules in the 2nd day.

Then i wd take up a whole blog myslf if i were to comment abt the quality of the events. I wd jus giv a example, ths is wat happ in debate: we get a topic 1 min bef we speak and thn each person speaks fr 2 mins, and guess whu's evaluatin, ***ing 2nd yrs whu dnt knw SHIT abt debate or let go speakin. I wnt stop talking if i mention abt hw scrwd up other evnts like quiz, mock press, dumb c etc etc.

From my evaluation the only events that lived upto ther so called EXPECTATION were: JAM, personality contest and the DANCE competition( thou tht was bad too as the org had too many DAMN fillers even when the dance teams were waitin fr ther terms at 2 am in the night)

The prize money was SUCKIN bad, more than 1000 ppl registered, that itself is 1 lakh into the CET coffrs. I came home on day 1 and counted the whole prize money and was SHOCKED to see that it was JUST 1.4 lakhs! This is for a evnt that's touted to be the next best thng after sliced bread and with a unheard of budget of 25 lakhs!

FUCKERS FUCKERS bloody liars!

Then came the best joke of all. Strings coming to dhwani. I dnt knw hw many of u knew, bt before strings was SELECTED the organisers had a bluff goin arnd tat JAL was gonna rock TVM, then came Strings wch was stopped due to a SO CALLED SECURITY issue, now whu knws hw much CETians paid to get that rumour floatin around.

To sum it all, DHWANI was the THEPPU of the YEAR, and CETians all did well to RUIN the name of the best fest in TOWN. I have stopped believin anythn now that has the TAG CET attached to it, whu knws wat's the next big lie in ther bag.

PS: ther's anotehr rumour doin rounds that CET is gonna rock TVM wth a tech fest in early jan-feb. God knows wat's the theppu they gonna think of for that??????????

9:53 PM

if they r the ones aiming 4 management,hell,
if they r the ones aiming 4 public relations,fukn hell,
if they r the ones aiming 4 any sort of organizing at all,
CET ians ,all i have 2 say is ... when fukin hell freezes over.

11:45 PM

@destiny...
i appreciate you 4 posting under your real name... well, the success of an event is not decided by its magnitude...it depends on how the participants and guests feel after once the fest is over... the fest by CET could easily qualify as one of the biggest in kerala...but alas, it was like a big budget box office disaster... its like karan johar making movies..get all the stars, pour in the money..but no substance at all...and the audience will have a suckin feelin....
and thr's more to a festival than just plain strict rulzzz...thr's a thing called sportsman spirit..would any organiser turn away guys who have come to participate in a fest? These kinds of fests are conducted with an aim to promote harmony and create a sense of camaraderie among students from various coleges...but wt u did is really fuelling hatred among others towards your college and its students...so i hope good sense prevails atleast nxt time around....

@headbanger
the FM radio coming up during ur performance is the worst thing i hav seen in my life....wt a sound system..aftr having this huge budget....

@rockus
u r rite..mohandas's fest illuminati din't even have half the budget of dhwani.. and the size of the stage was even smaller..but the organisers there made us feel really comfortable, with the effect that we still have fond memories of coming thr....

@abhi..
dude..u reallyy made a roud up of the comedy of errors that was dhwani 06..i neva thot tht this mismanagement was thr in almost all events of the fest...

@the wandering jew...
nice poem...he heee...

12:36 AM

hehehehe....sounds kiddish....talking about sportsman spirit and attitude after this much...hehehe

11:16 AM

hey..Praveen,i agree with u...dhwani sucked big time..not even near enuf to wat u wud expect in a so called "grand event" or "mega fest"...
>>destiny..
its not a fact that a program happens strictly according to rulz...some rules need to b bended if u want a program of this magnitude to b a success..and wat is the problem if the band was ready to perform not for the prize money??..y cant CETian organisers understand the spirit behind that??.
and its not just the rock shows...most programs were disasters...not something u expect in such a program..they had the resources to make it a success...the failure is due to the organisation..
personally...i feel that the fest sucked alltogether..

djnath  

HEY it was a inter collegiate fest nd not lettin ppl from different colle play in a band is the rule for dhwani ... u could have contacted the organizers before dhwani and made sure whether u could perform or not rather than makin a scene at the last min ... and abt BOMBAY VIKINGS it depends on ppls taste , some felt it was good , some dint ... i personally dint like RAGE cause i dont understand RoCk nor can i enjoy it but lots of my frnds did like it , but i liked BOMBAY VIKINGS .. its true it will be frustratin when u work so hard nd u ar not let to play in the final minute , but abt the rock band case, u could have clarified it before dhwani started , once we let teams like urs play , next time if for dance competition a professional dance troop is comin ,we cannot let them , so we dont encourage such things ... think of it from all direction ...

9:31 PM

DHWANI06 was a huge success . U can see it from the participation form other colleges . More than 1000 students from different colleges registered for the event paying RS 100 as registration fee . Between 2000 and 3000 students from other colleges came to watch DHWANI.

The problem what u mentioned is because of u r fault alone . It is u r responsibility to check the rule and regulations before coming for participation. All these 1000 students came and participated without any problem .It was specified in the site and brochure that ONLY ONE TEAM FROM A COLLEGE is allowed for most all group events(11 different events). It was an inter college festival for all colleges in south India . If students came without accepting these rules how can we accept that .

Actually it is because of our mercy u people performed in the event. If we strictly followed the rules we should not allowed u people to perform. Because of our respect to participants we allowed u to perform . It is the responsibility of ur college union and tem captain to select one team from ur college . That is not our duty. We want only one best team from a college . We can not accept if 10 teams come for same event from a college . If ur team is the best one in ur college , allowing another team to come for dhwani is the fault of ur college union and team captain .

From ur college other students came and participated without any problem then what is the problem with u . Only one team for group dance came from u r college and they performed well. We all enjoyed that wonderful dance ….

It is not good for a gentle man to blame others for his own faults …..

To aravind jithin.... Well what u told was crap....Its not just the rock bands who suffered... i play for a band and i kno how much preperations that are needed... it may seem like an easy thing for u.. but its not..as far as the rules of urs are concerned.. they were nothin but shit..take the example of the rock show itself... u never mentioned that only "WESTERN LANGUAGES" were allowed in the contest.. we were practicin PAKI ROCK for the show... Heavy songs... some luck we contacted some guy in ur college.. he told like only western languages are allowed and paki songs can be allowed only in eastern.. and the next comment he made wen we told that these were heavy songs and are not appropriate to be played for eastern was-"INDIAN MUSIC IS EVERCHANGING... THERE IS NO PARTICULAR STYLE THAT COULD BE ATTRIBUTED TO IT"..yea kiss my a$$...As though he is an expert in indian music...We forced to play total crap for rock show...(couldnt complete it coz of the stupid amps..yea someone kill that mixer ass!%^#)...
This is about the ROCK...Ok I agree; this is just one programme (for u.. but definitely not just a programme for us..)
WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER EVENTS????? READ THE POST OF ABHI U STUPID... What do u tell about the facts mentioned by abhi?????
We didnt just limit our participation to ROCK alone.......

And the most important claim of urs in ur post .... Well dhwani used to be a good programme...USED TO BE UNTIL 2006...WHY SO MANY PEOPLE PARTICIPATED WAS BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD AS IT ALWAYS HAD BEEN TILL NOW.... I PAID 100 RS FOR PARTICIPATING IN A GOOD PROGRAMME...EVEN IF THE REGISTRATION FEE FOR ANY FEST IS 500 AND IF THE EVENT IS GOOD..THEN EVERY ONE WILL JOIN.. THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT...PEOPLE THOUGHT DHWANI WAS A GOOD EVENT AND THEY TURNED UP IN HUGEEE NUMBERS..IF U ASK ANYONE WHO WAS PRESENT THERE...THEY WOULD SAY THAT THEY WASTED THIER MONEY...AND THE PRIZE MONEY WAS TOTAL SHIT...BUDGET OF 25 LACS???? YEA RITE... THEN HOW COME THE TOTAL PRIZE MONEY WAS LIMITED JUST TO 1.4 LACS??? U PEOPLE JUST GOT ALMOST AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO IT THRU REGISTRATION FEE...

THE HYPE U CREATED WAS TOO MUCH..SO PEOPLE CAME IN LARGE NUMBERS TO WATCH THE EVENT.... THATS NOT SUPRISING...SERIOUSLY DO U THINK THAT THESE MUCH PEOPLE WILL COME NEXT TIME AFTER ORGANISING...OOOPS SORRY 'DISORGANISING'A EVENT LIKE THIS??? NEVER.. THATS FOR SURE....


AND U TALKED ABOUT MERCY??WHAT MERCY??
NAMMAL KANDADATHU NINNU THENDI THIRINJU VANNATHALLA NINTEYOKE ADUTHUNNU 'MERCY' CHODICHUVAANGAAN..IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAV HAPPENED IF WE ALL GUYS JUST DECIDED NOT TO PERFORM ??? U BETTER UNDERSTAND THIS... WE COULD HAV VERY WELL DONE THAT.. AND FYKI WE MAY VERY WELL DO THAT FOR THE NEXT DHWANI.... AND FOR THE NEXT DHWANI THE ROCK SHOW VERY WELL BE HAVIN JUST CHILDREN PLAYIN PEEPEE!!!!

well well...dhwani 06 the most hyped, the most anticipate ,the most attented piece o crap ever !! yea yea organisin such a "mega fest" is difficult..but considerin the stuff they blurtd out durin campaignin these morons shdve guessd tht lotsa ppl r gonna turn up !!
abt goin by the rules....1 piece o advice....obiviously u ppl didnt knw hw the rulz r gonna materialise whn its actually implemented ...so have the fckin brains to atleast change it whn u find its screwin up the events! i honestly hope the organisers were final years and wldnt hang around to screw up 1 more dhwani !!

3:12 PM

We organised DHWANI06 with only 50 days of work . with only that much days we made DHWANI this much success .
Now there are about 7 MONTHS left in this educational year . Try to organise a bigger event than DHWANI 06 . then u will feel the difficulty of organising an event with more than 50 events.
if u or ur college organise a bigger event than dhwani without any problem from any one then we will accept what u said .

3:30 PM

50 days!
aaah!
50 days!
Poor Poor sissies!
Only 50 days!

Dude 50 days is an eternity!
And yeah
"if u or ur college organise a bigger event than dhwani without any problem from any one then we will accept what u said ."

Been there...done that...

4:12 PM

i perfectly understand your anger, well but then give a little thought to what im sayin

there were at least a few 500 students who squeezed the last drop of sweat fro every pore in their body for this event .....have u went for ragam or ne mega event for that matter ....dont tell me those were without those minor hitches ! ...
the same way we appreciate ur sentiment for not being able to showcase your sports man spirit, try to appreciate the sincerety we've shown behind dhwani...
dhwani wasnt supposed to be PERFECT ...NOTHING CAN BE.
n dont get high on all those anti-cet comments that came ...at least 50% of them can be perfectly attributed to raw JEALOUSY.

n someone said we get all the money juz like that .....mate u didnt see us running behind the sponsors...U DONT DIG HOW HARD ITS TA CONVINCE THEM TA SPONSOR N EVENT THAT CUDNT BE HELD THE LAST 2 N HALF YRS !!

n about strings....its easy ta criticize mate ...we didnt ask the gov. of india ta declare this city as "communal" ....we didnt bluff about the 1 lac that was given away as advance to them ...
we didnt bluff about all the meetins with M.Ps n who not !

its your blog n u own the right ta do nething here ....but out there C.E.T is juz not a hype dude ....n about benny ...juz try ta make urself responsible enough for an event like that n then u know how hard its ta not go mental .....
think !! juz think

n about the rule ...all team memebers from the same college ... u say u didnt want ne points....u were showing spirit ..understand one thing dude ..dhwani was a competition ....someone had ta be given away points ...n if the band with ARJUN was by some chance given the first .....u wud have said we are biased !! ......theres no way zipping the mouth of envy !!
n about the community uve got opened in ORKUT ...ne filth can swear dude ...it takes sense ta understand what is for what

4:21 PM

Oh....So much activity regarding this post...Hmmm..Well,First,I wld lik to say to the CETians tht There would have been mistakes,Actually,There are supposed to be mistakes,Everyone makes them...You must first admit your mistakes... When some of the participants complain to you about anything,first,sort it out....they are your guests...remember that..U have organised such an event for them... I can understand tht u ppl r from CET and u might b having some EGO regarding all these matters.. I am a friend of Rockus,and along with him,I 2 was involved reagrding the organisation of a samll event in our college..With a budget of just 1 lack...V know exactly how 2 organise an event,unlike you people...Read wht is written by rockus..I am not repeating all these things again... As of you people,U have all the resources u want..And My GOD 25 lacks of Budjet...It is a big Thing.. U have so much of responsiblity not to spoil anything. One last thing,the Name "DHWANI" got its recognision because of the hard work of many people working for many years... Dont spoil it... You people have no idea about starting an event from scratch.. Thts y u ppl are saying things lik this.. And wht was tht guy talking about "Mercy"?? Is this wht CET tels to your participants... tht u r performing because of our Mercy?? Shame on You... The best example tht u can folow is of "La'Fest"...A school level fest,it still holds its reputation... You people will suffer if you dont change... This is all I have to say...I am not against CET or supporting SCT... Hell,infact I am such a person who almost hates Hard Rock...Can't understand even a single word of it!!! But still I enjoyed the rock show made by praveen and party in my college...I enjoyed it because I beleive They enjoyed It,and the Audiance enjoyed it...Every event is meant for the enjoyment of the Audiance... Rules and all other stuff come second.. And I know abhi also,he is my junior...And I trust him 4 tht... Learn from your mistakes mates...Learn from it...

4:31 PM

OK Destni... i agree that u people worked hard...
same goes for us participants too.... We hav worked hard... But wat i gotta ask u is u urself said that there was a lot of mistakes.... way tooooooooo many mistakes.... and thats wat we all been sayin...dhwani was total flop this season...but wy is people like aravind jithin not acceptin that ??? and wats more he was treatin participants like we deserved MERCY from u people??? WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT FOR????
and abt the 50 days he told... IF U R PLANING TO DO A MEGA EVENT ..PLAN EARLY...ITS NOT OUR FAULT THAT U PEOPLE STARTED LATE.. AND U R LIKE BLAMIN US FOR U GUYS STARTIN LATE AND FUCKIN UP THE ENTIRE EVENT....
AND DONT TELL THAT ALL THE GUYS HERE DONT KNO HOW TO ORGANISE ANY PROGRAMMES...WE HAV WENT FOR MANY AND MANY OF US HAV ORGANISED GOOD EVENTS.... WE DIDNT TELL ANYONE TO ORGANISE 50 EVENTS FOR DHWANI...WATS THE USE OF ORGANISIN MORE THAN 50 EVENTS IF THEY CANT BE PROPERLY CONDUCTED????

AND ABOUT SPONSORSHIP....FOR EVERY EVENT ITS LIKE THAT...U NEED TO RUN AFTER THE SPONSORS...AND THAT IS NOT A MATTER OF CONCERN FOR US....AND DONT TELL US THAT FOR A PROGRAMME HAVIN SUCH FAME AS DHWANI IT WAS VERY HARD TO GET SPONSORSHIP...IF IT HAS BEEN THEN IT WILL GET HARDER FOR THE NEXT DHWANI.....
AND JEALOUSY??? FOR WHOM ?? WE PEOPLE?? JEALOUS ABT DHWANI BEIN REALLY FUCKED UP???? NAAAAAH WE FEET PITY...TO REALLY FUCK UP WAT USED TO BE A NICE FEST INTO TOTAL SHIT..... WE FEEL PITY....

AT LEAST FOR THE NEXT DHWANI...... LEARN FROM U R MISTAKES INSTEAD OF FIGHTIN AGAINST THE REALITY....

Dhwani was there even before ur band,dude...and since the day it has been it has been an INTER COLLEGIATE event.n that's the final word....i am just another cetian who never happened to be on the organising side....nd i know Deepak Benny nd 'the microsoft guy' n all well n gud...n i know the pain they took in organising this event which was so nearly cancelled...ther wer nearly 4000 ppl around...i gus dats the figure..well, lemme tell u if ther was a scuffle or anythin of da sort amidst these many...n let me tell u ..hav u seen any event of this magnitude in this part of the state...it's always easy to blame...but praveen u sound absolutely lame.....we had a registration which was college based...we had a time schedule for programs n we had enough rock bands to perform...n we had other more catchy events with more participants...why don't u think of them rather than think of your own band...ok, my bro in your own college said it was well organised...n please don't blame dhwani cos i hav seen ur still low budget 'swaratharang' well disorganised than this...with smell of waste trucks from priyadarshini hall....so jus don't blame for the sake of blaming...think of all sides

2:44 AM

mate u are simply repeatin the points ....
pointing out anothers mistakes is one thing ....SWEARIN IN A COMMUNITY AS IN ORKUT IS ANOTHER.

dont tell me u were being decent !!
n about the organzing capability u say u have .....DUDEE !! 25 lacs of budget n 1 lac is like n ocean n a tub ....ta stream ur resources with 1 lac is hell easy !! WELL may be not EASY but ne ways far easier than managin 25 !!!!
n who said we dont admit our mistakes !! ARAVIND JITHIN WAS JUZ DRIVING HOME THE POINT !!
it was a competition n had we stuck to our rules you wouldnt have been allowed ta jam juz like that without actually being in the competition !
n mate this is trivandrum !! im a hard core fan of rock myself ...but i cant juz close ma eyes at the truth .....blokes in tvm juz dont appreciate rock !! n honestly ive ma doubts about ur ethinicity !! YOU NOT BEEN TVM TA UNDERSTAND TVM DOESNT HAVE ROCK AFFICIONADOS OR WHAT !!

naveen said !!

"I can understand tht u ppl r from CET and u might b having some EGO regarding all these matters"

mate its u who has got all the ego piled up !! what kinda ego did we show ehh !

n yeah about spoiling DHWANI ...if ya didnt know yet DHWANI '06 was the most successful of all yet !!
n plzz understand DHWANI with 20 events wud be like MAYbach with autorikshaw wheels !!
dude n we accept we did have the minor flaws ......n we accept them ! n we will always strive ta be better ...but coz u got a reason ta blame n ta accuse dont push too far !!

n ta put up a show together after a 2 n half year lay off isnt nething close ta what u can think up !! TRUST ME WITH THAT!!
n about jealousy .....hehe someone was askin "jealousy for fucking up dhwani?? "

hehe mate !! i can swear juz as well as u can ...mite jus be betta at that, but i aint showcasing ma swearin skills now !!

n brother, it was us who did DHWANI n NOT U ....so when we say it was real tough ta get the sponsors do the job WE mean it !! ...
n the way you said, trust me with that kinda mindset
"AND DONT TELL US THAT FOR A PROGRAMME HAVIN SUCH FAME AS DHWANI IT WAS VERY HARD TO GET SPONSORSHIP"

cant believe u actually said that !!
dont be so thick dude !! FAME is not all that matters dude ...there are thousand questions we need ta answer ta convince them about ...
n please ...i repeat again for all respect for u ...
"DHWANI SUCKS" community in orkut doesnt uphold ne of the ideas u said ..
its juz hell bent at abusing the whole of cet ...n hell yeah itsnt serving ur purpose if as u said u are juz being voicing ur points !!

@ Adheesh L P
"n we had enough rock bands to perform"

name 3 decent bands which are not mixed out of ur whole lot of 12!!


" hav seen ur still low budget 'swaratharang' well disorganised than this"

If someone critises me saying my guitar playing is not good enough .. I dont bark back saying let me see u play half of this ... I look back at myself and correct where ive gone wrong !! All ive seen u guys do is just keep justifying that only u guys are right!!

@ destini
"mate its u who has got all the ego piled up !! what kinda ego did we show ehh ! " ??

A WHOLE lot of it.How does threatening sound for starters ??

" im a hard core fan of rock myself ...but i cant juz close ma eyes at the truth ...."

Have u any idea how many mixed bands u guys allowed to take part in that competition ???

@Aravind Jithin
"Actually it is because of our mercy u people performed in the event"

All i remember is going and asking ur principal permission to let us play and he gave it to us !! PLease enlighten me on where exactly the conveners had shown 'mercy??' !!


About the dhwani sucks community..
You people hadnt exactly let us post our comments in ur dhwani Community!! There was soo much bitterness surrounding it that a community like it was Bound to happen.Please try and understand we dont gain anything outta simply complaining or swearing for the heck of it !!If u guys are just going to justify urself saying nothing like this happened ...and that its all in the hater's heads ... THen trust me .. this is gonna be just a waste of time for all of us!!! We could just go on justifying ourselves on our parts .. but we arent gonna gain Anything out of it!! So take a moment to think wether there couldave been possibilities of ego clashes or not... Just dont lash out and swear or try to justify urself .. just for the heck of it !! If there are enough people to hate dhwani to actually come up with a community then u gotta admit that Things could have gone wrong somewhere !! And please dont bother replying to this if ure just gonna tell me .. We showed mercy .. We had no mixed band other than yours .. We strictly followed rules .. We showed no ego and all ... Cuz im sick of hearing those lies !!

8:03 PM

yep,we wanted constructive criticism...now is when u r getting to it.. n wat we expected isn't a blog full of 'fucks'.i still think u wud not b able to participate in next dhwani.performing..may be..one day u could perform..like rage..headbangers r taking over cet..me being one of'em..u wud sure get a better response..n for the anti rock guys..they wud hav done the same if it was metallica performin(that's an utopian phrase in cet).we gave rs 200 /-.we needed to be ther,rite? n if we can't do to our liking on our own football ground..where else r we to do it...we r passing out.. destini,deepak benny, aravind jithin n all...so it's up to our juniors..but i gus the organisers wil giv this feedback 2 our juniors..hoping for better dhwani 07.

9:52 PM

@destiny....
well said..

the first thing u hav to understand is dhwani is an inter collegiate festival and not an open one.inter collegiate in the sense different colleges compete for the top honour.And one thing u need to understand is that we cannot change the rules for some of u guys. but still we allowed u to perform even though not as part of the competition.... First u better appreciate for that...

from ur communities i think u r from SCT . First u people organise a good event... i myself have come to 2 of ur tech fest last year and won prize in one of them.sorry to say that ur oraganizers not only failed to organize even an average standard event.... after the event the organizers told that they will be sending the prizes to each via mail... asked whether they dont need the address they told that they will contact each some way or the other...as expected no contact frm them till date.... sorry to say that u people conduct a lot of events but none of them is even average....

u may say that u r not part of these all but still u must try to understand the difficulties in organizing an event...

@ anand


" im a hard core fan of rock myself ...but i cant juz close ma eyes at the truth ...."

Have u any idea how many mixed bands u guys allowed to take part in that competition ???

yeah i think i HAVE !! JUST ONE.

n it wasnt a competition for them ..they were allowed ta perform solely on basis of their will ...


n plzzz anand dont tell us we didnt accept our faults ...guess u haven got ur oculars fixed !!

read through what iv ewritten again

n one anther thing

"If there are enough people to hate dhwani to actually come up with a community then u gotta admit that Things could have gone wrong somewhere"


excuse me !! did i get u right ...anand ?? tvm right ?? heard of cet ?
dude !! juz for the heck of it try ta be of some point sometimes !!
dont tell me theres not one single soul whos not got nething against CET !! All that glitters is not gold brother ...i still say at least half of those swearing camw from people who havent even seen the dhwani posters yet !!!
so lets cut the crap ....we have had our minor hitched n we will correct them ... errr that wud be n under statement ..we will correct them n make it betta ...!!
n this isnt a stand asider writing .i did play ma part in dhwani ....n itz juz gonna gt better ....

@Praveen, You poor loser,

I pity you..For you are blind and myopic at the same time..

@Praveen..Dude..like my friend Destiny ..I am a huge rock fan myself..I personally feel that the RAGE show was AWESOME!! I liked it even more than i liked Vikings.. But u gotta understand..ROck is just catching on in Trivandrum..Rock fans are still a minority..Thats why we decided against bringing a rock band like Parikrama here..

@Abhijith, I wrote the intro page myself.. If you have a problem with my writing , Call CNN for all i care 8-D 8-D!!!

About the prize money part..You cant buy DHWANI CERTIFICATES at connemara market man!! Money aint everything!!

@Rohin dude, tough luck.. My sincerest sympathies..(Am serious here)

@Wandering Jew, If hell freezes over, take a furcoat with you when you die!! It will come in useful!!

@Abhay, "You were forced to play crap"..Remind me..DId we keep you at Gunpoint and ordered "PLAY CRAP!!!Or Else..." You play crap its your problem mate!!!

@Naveen, U organized an event for 1 lakhs..Congratulations!! Our departments organized five of those last year..

In a place where people conduct Technical cum cultural events to get even 100 people to participate.. I am talking abt your own college Mr.Praveen.. We were able to organize such a grandoise event.. There has been glitches.. I have no issues with that.. Events in which i organized had glitches..

@Praveen dude..have you heard of this saying? "Its always empty vessels which make much noise"..

Good night and good luck..

@the rocking heart...
did i ever say thtt such fests tht u mentioned [those tech cum culturals our own colege departments conduct] are bettr than yours...never...they could never match you in grandeur and the vareity of programs..but they know how to behave...they won't insult their guests...am just against this attitude of some among you...am not against whole cet..maybe am an empty vessel as u perceive, but sometimes those noises do hav meaning..plz try to understand thatt...

@adheesh...***.we gave rs 200 /-.we needed to be ther,rite? n if we can't do to our liking on our own football ground..where else r we to do it...we r passing out.......***

i perfectly understand a final yr guys feeling..bcos am also one...
and agreeed its your own football ground...but is it right to insult your guests even if wt u said above is true...wen those guys booed at rage, just think how they might have felt...how will you feel when your host insult you...and din't we too pay Rs150 to get inside the ground...did any of us try to do smething like that just bcos we paid the moneyy..even for vikings, we din't boo, even though he was a total sucker singing with karaoke..thts bcos he's kerala's guest..we gotta treat him with courtesy, even if we don't lik him...

@destini
i appreciate u in tht u wer atleast ready to accept thtt ther wer glitches...

but
****
dont tell me theres not one single soul whos not got nething against CET !

this i dont agree...we have got nothing against cet..we respect it as a great institution of tradition churning out worthy engineers...

u r really out of ur mind to tell such bad things about dhwani...first think abt how ur college conducts its fests...each branch separately conducts fests and there is just one thing in common between all the fests conducted by ur college....they r damn boring and u collect registration fee amount for all the events and never give even a single penny to the prize winners...thats how ur college events are....dhwani was really great!!!ask any unbiased person abt it..the whole of cet was involved in it and thats y the event is so huge and attractive...if u r jealous of it,first ask ur college students to be united and i hope that atleast in another 10 yrs time,ull b able to conduct an event in ur college atleast 10% as good as dhwani.

2:19 AM

@The Rocking Heart

ROck is just catching on in Trivandrum..

As an old timer..I have to disagree with you..we had "Karishma"and so many others from TVM.....And we all used to hang out at Indian Coffee House at Spencers Jn....13AD had played in TVM so many times..Remo Fernandes had performed in TVM...it was in eighties and nineties begining..

and please dont call grunge and other new music forms "rock"..they never came close to Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd,Metallica, GNR,Led Zeppelin,Deep Purple,Judas Priest etc...

Keep rocking guys!

"but

*****
this i dont agree...we have got nothing against cet..we respect it as a great institution of tradition churning out worthy engineers..."

lets get this right once n for all!
i wasnt pin pointin at ne of you guys whos commented here ....if i had to, TRUST ME, i wud have screamd out the names !!
i was juz sayin !! come on i know people whos hell against CET ...n trust me ego is nothing that is part n parcel of cet !! There are of course people out there (in any college for that matter) who are a lot betta than us....I had to say that coz invariably always i find cetians accused of showin ego n only ego !! come on mate a diffrence of 30 marks in entrance dont define worth n worthlessness !!

n i accept there were those few who booed at RAGE.....n of course for all reasons thats nt exactly the way ta behave ...n we appreciate your composure ! if waht u said was true to the syllable that is!
(about not likin the vikin guy)

But brother without ne offence i wud like to point out sometin ....had u organized the event n we the spectators , trust me we would have behaved juz the way YOU did !! n those few among you wud have done juz what those few of us did !
[IF YOU THOUGHT CETians ARE A SPECIES IN ITSELF WHO HAVE NO SENSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AT ALL]

n i thank u for acceptin that i was not being biased with ma commentin ....

BUT again I was forced ta start commentin only after i read all those swearins that came our way ..
[you wouldnt appreciate bein called "----- ***kers" right?][callin all of cetians that was a mistake brother ..ne wayss]
So dude Praveen if it was you who started that community in orkut, we would appreciate if u close it down ..coz its not servin nething other than improvin the vocabs of a few illiterate !!

hope you take me in the right sense!

6:36 PM

@Praveen Dude,

Agree with you on that count that Vikings sucked!

The jar is slightly empty, its almost full!!

Read my blog on perfection..

@destini and all othersss...

I HAVE NOTHING TO do with the Dhwani Sucks community in orkutt
i din't start itt...i just posted some comments theree...plz don't attribute that community to my namee....
if i do something, i wud do it under my own name...i won't go around creating fake profiles and starting a community....bcos i like to say what i hav to say in the face.......
i don't change my initials or identity to voice my opinions....so plz understand guysss

6:29 PM

for all those irreverend diatribes and intense polemics against Dhwani'06..

the owner of this blog can congragulate himself..suddenly u re getting all the attention..a deluge of 'fors and againsts' on ur topic..

cin the crusade of the crusader on tarnishing the brand value of dhwani i kinda tend to remember an old adage of a king ordering to throw down the sun just coz it burned his arse..

dear crusader, v admit dat ther ws a flaw in the rock syndrome..but dat doesnt mean dat dhwani's failed..by thinking and writing so u re disparaging the hardwork of a 1000 ppl who worked day n nite so dat this event would happen, so dat an obscure band like urs could come n perform at CET..if not praising try atleast to respect the venue and the host...

and lemme remind u crusader,no fowl words of urs would kill the spirit of dhwani,no amount of bad mouthing can distort the spirit of CET,if u understand the meaning of spirit..i'd ve taken this blog in a sporty spirit if u wer not to point out names..mentioning Deepak Benny hust show how insolent and sarcastic ur attitude is..alas i cant help it..
to end it just me tell u one more thing..when u r at ur deathbed go ask God to extend ur life for another hundred years n then again for another 500 years..andi dare you,i double dare you..u wont b able to come up with somethng which's half as better as dhwani,u wont even understand wut the spirit of organizing such an event is like!!!i'd c u standing mute and paralyzed eventually leading to a psychological anorexia..

P.S ther's a saying v CETians usually quote..

The meek shall inherit the earth..the rest of us shall go to the stars..

adios lesser mortals...

@the wanderer
***no foul words of urs would kill the spirit of dhwani,no amount of bad mouthing can distort the spirit of CET****

I've reitarated time and again tht my aim's not to spoil the reputation of dhwanii and tht i don't have nothing against CET...as a person who enjoyed dhwani's last edition conducted 2 years back, i was really surprised at the fall in standards this year...its not just in the rock syndrome, in many other events as pointed out by others here...so, what i did was pinting out that..i agree that i used a lot of foul language because i wrote that in a really angry state of mind after being subjected to a lot of insults by the organisers there...especially the man whose name i mentioned there...u also wud have done the same if u had been there in my shoes...and his deplorable behaviour made me take names....
and thanks 4 giving our obscure band to step on tht great dhwani stagee..
