You Know What They Say About Bigger Posters…

Club Zamana bills itself as Columbia’s “largest South Asian organization,” and while that probably refers to membership size, it looks to be true in the poster department as well. Club members just unrolled (literally) a three-story poster in Lerner for Tamasha 2009, their annual cultural showcase which will take place in Roone Arledge on the 27th.

Zamana should be careful, though: their poster completely blocks that of the Association of Computing Machinery. This can only end in an epic throwdown.

    @Anonymous Oh no they di’int!

    *snaps fingers and shakes head*

  • well says:

    @well 2.5 stories.
    Will it be recycled for next year?

  • yo bwog says:

    @yo bwog it’s spelled Tamasha

    1. I mean, says:

      @I mean, It’s only spelled out on a three-story poster.

      Though, it would be kinda funny if there was a typo on it.

  • Guess what... says:

    @Guess what... Kavi totally put that up there….GO KAVI!!

  • hmmm, says:

    @hmmm, what exactly do “south asian organizations” do?
    i am actually curious, not being provocative here.

  • groupie says:

    @groupie Yay Kavii
    Yay Zamana
    YAY TAMASHA!!!!

  • Isn't Tamasha says:

    @Isn't Tamasha Just a bunch of Indian dance groups doing different types of Indian dancing?

    1. Like says:

      @Like at a Pow Wow?

  • ... says:

    @... wow, zamana obviously has too much money.

    1. Alum says:

      @Alum I was on Zamana a few years back and the only reason they have so much money is because they fundraise like mofo’s. I’ll be the first to admit it’s the reason I didn’t do it for more than one year. It was hella intense.

  • i am says:

    @i am tamasha

  • also says:

    @also vemishawty in the house!

  • tamasha says:

    @tamasha was the largest culture show last year. everyone should go!

    they have dan nainan coming this year from last comic standing. he’s HILARIOUS. plus tamasha has good food.

  • nice says:

    @nice good to know my student life fees are subsidizing that crap. If you needed proof that these big cultural organizations were over-funded and were spending their vast budgets on crap, look no further. It’s kind of funny that they would call themselves ‘recession edition’ and do this when Community Impact is so poor and service groups on campus in general dont have money

    1. that's interesting says:

      @that's interesting Club Zamana and other culture organizations are poorer than community impact, even though they encompass more members. Your service clubs obviously just aren’t as good at grant applications.

  • actually says:

    @actually I sit on the Club Zamana board, and I can vouch for the fact that this banner came at no cost to us or Columbia. It was the product of a co-sponsorship solicited by our funding committee.

    1. ... says:

      @... stfu noob;

    2. so... says:

      @so... Which corporate dick did you suck?

      1. your says:

        @your mother’s.

  • how about says:

    @how about it’s just obnoxious.

  • rich? no. says:

    @rich? no. http://www.cuactivitiesboard.org/about/budget.php

    but hey, you’d be surprised what a few indians can do even with a small budget if they’ve got a vision ;)

    1. ... says:

      @... i’m calling it already: Zamana wins the culture show battle of 2008-2009.

      we all know that the real point of these culture shows isn’t to showcase your culture: its to show that your culture can put on a bigger show than everyone else’s.

      indians: 1
      koreans, chinese, asian-americans: 0

  • that's cuz says:

    @that's cuz we indian are cheap.

    YouTube Russell Peters for details.

  • Every says:

    @Every Ethnic group says they are cheap. My Scottish grandparents say it, my girlfriends Jewish family says it, Indians say it, Italians say it, Greeks say it. So, nobody or everybody is cheap when you actually get down to it.

    1. um... says:

      @um... …except that the Jews got 10x more money, and the scottish/italian/greek student clubs don’t put on events that draw crowds of nearly 1k paying audience members.

      1. except says:

        @except all Zamana does is throw parties, often off-campus, and dances. I don’t want to subsidize your ethno-centric social life.

  • zamana? culture? says:

    @zamana? culture? if your idea of south asian culture are various forms of dances, perhaps a few instrumental music pieces, then some diasporic rapper/comedian/etc, followed by a massive after party – then hooray for this interpretation of culture

    how about creating a cultural dialogue rather than a reductionist interpretation…

    1. amusing says:

      @amusing You obviously don’t know anything about Zamana and are talking out of your ass. The entire rest of the year Zamana hosts forums, panels, screenings and service activities. Nice try.

  • ^wow says:

    @^wow that wasn’t a ‘reductionist’ approach to tamasha at all. after all it’s just a few dance teams who put too much of their time, intellect, and energy into choreography that’s created in a total vacuum. all of us who perform at zamanas show don’t know what ‘real’ south asian culture is, because culture is this fixed, unchanging thing that cannot possibly be realized without there being some vague ‘cultural dialogue’.

  • guys guys says:

    @guys guys you are all nerds, who reads all this boring stuff about cultural dialogue and what not… are there gonna be hot girls (pref non Columbia) at the after party and where is it?
