The Fourth Estate, also known as TFE, is the campus magazine of IIT Madras. The range is colossal, from the profound to the ridiculous, from poems, abstract or constructive, to stories, humorous or instructive, from sarcastic essays to vignettes, from cartoons to graffiti, from one-liners to limericks and much more.
