“When you all work together, not even I can say who is senior or junior in the group.” Jayanth sir, the mentor of The Box Office had once told me. This is exactly what we aimed at TBO, when few of us came together to create it in 2014.
We wanted to create a culture where students regardless of their year or department came together to showcase as well as to enhance their talents and to provide a platform where none would judge them. We also str to not have any barriers among seniors and juniors and none should feel superior or inferior to another.
Though we may be called the dramatics club of MIT, TBO has never restricted our members nor our events to dramatics, rather we encouraged each member as well as non members to pitch in ideas on any matter and as a collective, tried to bring these ideas to life.
Under the mentor-ship of Teaching Faculty of the English Department ARS Jayanth, the seeds of TBO which few of us treasured in our mind sprouted into a sapling and thanks to the dedicated work of the members who came after us, I am glad to see it as a fully grown tree providing the shade and comfort which we always wished for, to the students of MIT.
The time I had spent for TBO with its members, be it the meetings, brain storming sessions, the outings or the bigger projects which we dreamt of under the TBO banner, would always be the most treasured memories of my college life. I hope TBO would bring the same joy and success to all the future members, that it brought to my dreary college life.
