A long breath of accumulated years
Has sustained each day as lives veered
Taking pathways to the unforeseen
Following fragrant flowering dreams

Our class reunion marks the occasion
How has distance altered the equation?
Smiles abound with freely given embraces
Recognizable voices give light to familiar faces

The Institute Diamond Jubilee year ended with a bang as it's alumni gathered to celebrate a few moments of nostalgia, friendship, joy as well as pay their homage to the garden that grooms bed of saplings to grooves.

 

The Reunion sprawled over a span of 3 days consisting of Silver Jubilee Reunions, Decennial Reunion and several other reunions of the batch of 1962, 1963, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, 2003, 2013 and finally ending with the Alumni Day. It was a melting pot of plethora of exhilarating and invigorating activities and events. This consist of joint sports activities, hostel and department visits, networking events, cocktail dinners and a whole bunch of informal activities.  

 

The occasion was graced with the presence of 130+ ex-students. ‘Distinguished Service Awards’ were concerned upon D.C.Agrawal (batch of 1969), Dr Rajkumar. P. Singh (1975), and G. Ravi Shankar (1990). for their notable contribution to the progress of the institute. The occasion also hosted some great professors from the times of the student years of this alumni to honour and felicitate them as well as reviving some hidden memories.

 

A whopping total of 250 million in Indian rupees was pledged by the Silver Jubilee batch. This magnanimous donation comes by a batch of ex-students as the single-most in the tradition of reunions. This is also one of the largest corpus donated by alumni to any alma mater in India. The 1992 batch gave donations worth 9.4 crores and the batch of 1998 announced that it will now give 1.6 crores.

Out of 850 students, 140 students have contributed to this donation. Abhay Pandey, the founder of A91 Solutions (CSE, B.Tech, Hostel 8)  has been the largest contributor with his 10 crore donation.

This aid goes towards a number of endeavours grand and small in the service of the institute and the current students. A number of legacy projects related to upgrading of-study facilities for students, labs as well as student scholarships are funded through this initiative.  Alumni have expressed a desire that the money should be used well and feel that students in India deserve the same kind of quality education which they were lucky to get from their institutes.
