We had our first Dallas Chapter luncheon meeting on Sunday, August 30 at India Palace, Dallas, Texas, USA. Most alumni who received RSVP were able to attend. We had about 16 alumni from various batches (1980 to 2006) and from almost all branches (CSE, Electric, Mechanical, Ceramic, Pharmacy, etc.). We started off with a delicious luncheon and spent some time talking about our individual days at IT-BHU. Members talked about the mithais they ate, movies they saw, professors that taught them, and everything else to do with IT-BHU. It was great going through memory lane and recollecting our good old days at IT-BHU.
After luncheon, we all introduced ourselves. We all talked about the year we passed, branch we studied, what we are doing now and bit about our family. After the introduction we formally created the Dallas Chapter with Nikhil Goel (CSE 2001) being recommended as the President and I was given the honor to be the Secretary. We decided about our next meeting. It will be a family picnic in the 2nd week of October. We had many alumni who have volunteered to help. The group wants to meet at least four (4) times in a year. Also, we discussed about creating a DFW-IT=BHU group on LinkedIn. Everyone knew at a few more folks who could not attend our meeting on August 30. Estimates ranged from 60-200 alumni folks in the Dallas-Fortworth Metroplex. I get emails almost every week from someone who wants to join our group.
