Message from ITBHU Chennai alumnus V.Subramaniam, 1982 batch.
Dear Fellow alumni,

I am V.Subramaniam from the batch of 1982. I am based in Chennai and run my own 
recruitment consulting and wireless messaging business called Meru Consultants & 
Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Check me out on www.meru.co.in.

The reason I am reaching out to you is to invite you to a get together to revive 
the Chennai chapter of the alumni association
. A few years ago we did meet 
but we have not done after that.I am broadcasting this to several groups/ids in 
the hope that it gets wider dissemination. 

This is a good time as any with the likely conversion of our institute to an 
IIT, the bill for which is awaiting parliament approval. Besides an 1974 
alumnus Naresh Jain from Chicago who runs a software company called JSC Global 
solutions and who has some operations in Chennai was instrumental in reaching 
out to me with a request to revive the alumni chapter here. I readily agreed 
having done once in the past.

We have now planned to meet at the Gandhinagar club at Adyar (Behind Fortis 
Malar hospital) on Wednesday, 24th at 7 pm.
It will a dinner cum cocktails 
affair on a contribution basis. The contribution will be around Rs 300/- per 
person but we are also looking at some part sponsorship to mitigate the cost.

Since the club party halls are booked for Fridays and weekends, we have chosen 
a weekday. Hope you will still make the extra effort to be present. It is 
essential that I get to know as to who is attending as I need to commit to the 
club authorities for catering purposes. 

Please reply/confirm to me by email at vsubu2000@yahoo.com

We are proud to announce that Gyanesh Pandey of ITBHU Electrical 1999 batch (covered previously here on the ITBHU Chronicle) has reached the final stages of The BBC/Newsweek World Challenge 2010" with his "Husk Power Systems" innovative idea.

To see more details of his work (including a video), as well as to vote to help his team to win, please visit http://www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/2010-finalists-project07.php

From the article:

In the state of Bihar in India, an estimated 50,000 villagers are lighting up with bio power. Husk Power Systems is using an innovative technology mix to run off-grid mini power stations fired by rice husks - a by-product that would otherwise be thrown away and release methane as it rotted. The company says that the villagers benefit from a clean and safe power source, - especially compared to the kerosene lamps that they are often replacing.

Cell phones are charged quickly and cheaply, improving communications for rural villagers, and lighting is both improving businesses and delighting families. No more excuses for not finishing the homework though!

 Editor's note:

"I have known about Gyanesh's work for some time now, but at the same time, was very pleasently surprised to see him on BBC in my hotel room in Helsinki where I was on travel. I felt very inspired, and proud, and immediately told my colleagues about this alumnus from my alma mater who is going places. I have voted for him, and hopefully you will too.
