Lucknow Chapter celebrates its Alumni Meet after a gap of two years
To take a walk down the corridors of nostalgia, Lucknow chapter of IT-BHU Global Alumni Association celebrated its meet on 28th January 2011 after a gap of 2 years. Lucknow homes many IT Alumni but, until now except a meet that took place 2 years back, the local chapter has missed a formal association. Although a small percentage representation but good to start with, 18 alumni out of the 60 contacted, attended the meet. We had representation from as early as 1970 batch passout (Shri N. C. Srivastava) to pass outs from batch of 2010.
The meet started traditionally with the recital of the kulgeet by all, followed by brief introduction by all. Sweet and sour memories narrated on a lighter note became the prime engagement of the event. The batch of 2006 was present in largest numbers with alums from Tata Motors and those currently studying at IIM Lucknow forming the major representatives.
From conversation with Mr. G. S. Gupta from the batch of 1970, it was revealed that the Malaviya Mission operating in Lucknow organises a meet of the engineering passouts from BHU on Mahamana’s birthday on 25 Dec every year. In an effort to consolidate the list of alums in and around Lucknow the list of 60 alumni with the Lucknow chapter has been passed on to him to be appended to the existing list of alumni with him. It was suggested that the complete Lucknow chapter should definitely meet every 25 Dec. Moreover, as IIM Lucknow hosts quite a sizeable number of IT-BHU alumni as its students every year (currently 18 across 2 years), it was suggested that some of the students of the 2nd and final year at IIM Lucknow shall take up the responsibility to coordinate induction of the alums admitted to the first year of IIM-Lucknow into the Lucknow chapter of IT BHU alumni association every year on a rolling basis. Currently Vineet Singh (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the batch of 2007 has taken up the responsibility for the coming year 2011 – 2012.
