We have received following message from Anup Sheshadri, Convener of KashiYatra ’09:
This is Anup Sheshadri, Convener, Kashi Yatra '09. This email is to request for some kind of help and support from alumni side.
The budget requirement for the Kashi Yatra ’09 event is more than Rs. 15 lakhs, and we are expecting sponsorship worth just Rs. 3 to 4 lakhs. But as we have much better and sentimental alumni, we have better chance to show off this year.
It is my kind request to you all, to help us to make the event successful. Help of any amount will definitely be accepted and appreciated considering the sour situation. We are planning to have the names of the alumni or alumni chapters/batches who contribute in our Kashi Yatra '09 souvenir.
The procedure and other required details for transaction will be given soon.
