A world imagined like no other, not just a single one, but one for each student of the NCA Lahore roster. The home of arts in Pakistan. NCA Lahore is where the real magic happens!
Inside the brick walls, they’ve created a world of their own – where music, arts and architecture are the language. No boundaries, no limits – only the sky. Students and graduates of NCA Lahore have one thing in common.. this is the place where they learned to live.. this is the place where they became themselves.
Here’s a list of crazy things only students from NCA Lahore can understand!
1. The sound of ‘Oye First Year’ seems like a gaali if you’re a first year but music to your ears if you’re a senior….
2. “Easy ho jao yaar” is the official way of saying drop the attitude and become one of us
3. You’re not an NCA-ite, till you’ve been thrown out of the auditorium at least once by Madam Malhi.
4. You may not know everyone’s name at NCA, but you know the faces. It’s their own community away from the world.
5. Shoppers in Summer – It may not rain anywhere else, but when you’re in NCA, Water bags can come out of nowhere – You’ve been Shopper-ed.
6. All other institutes may have their own rave parties and bonfires, but everyone wants to come to the famous NCA DJ Nights. Sorry guys…. Not That Easy!
7. Hostilities se panga nahi lena…. they have this unbreakable bond, that you do not want to mess with. Proper unit.
8. If you’re a first year, don’t expect sleeping to be a part of your stay at the hostel for the whole year. (Koi nahi, Audi hai na, us mein so jana)
9. The plastics at NCA don’t really realize they are plastics… they’ll keep asking you, What? ME? How so? – Dude… just go to BNU.
10. Clothing at NCA – you come all dressed up and excited shuru shuru mein, but get ready to pick that one pair of clothing for all sculpture classes.
11. “Tera hi scene hai yaaaar” – will either be used to appreciate you or literally ridicule you with sarcasm!
12. NCA ana sub chahte hain, lekin yahan tikna asaan nahi – NCA’s ragging is the initiation that changes a person from a Suzuki FX to a BMW…. You’ll never be the same.
