We live our day to day lives oblivious to the beauty that surrounds us and by the time we do realise what exactly it is that we’ve been blessed with, it’s generally too late. However when the good ol’ days call yet again, nostalgia surrounds us as we walk the hallowed boulevards of our youth. The Annual Alumni Meet brings to our alumni a chance to reconnect with their Alma Mater. It lets them relive the carefree days of their college lives as they get a chance to visit all the locations they once frequented.
The 16th Annual Alumni Meet is scheduled for 11th to 13th January, 2019 at IIT Kharagpur campus. This year the batch of 1969, the batch of 1979 and the batch of 1994 will be the special guests of honor. The Meet is now a major event anticipated by both the alumni and the students. As the years pass by and winds of change keep blowing, the Alumni Meet too shall keep evolving with the pace of time, hoping to bring to the alumni an experience that they may cherish all their lives.
Arena: The Arena unveiles itself in all its glory on Day 1 Annual Alumni Meet. What takes months of planning and diligent execution finally welcomes the Alumni. The Chai-Chhedis_charcha session cracks up the alumni. During the time of illumination, the arena takes spectacular view. Without any doubt, Arena has always been the charm of the Alumni Meet.
Department Visit: Sweet and salty memories of slogging in labs, fighting sleep and attempting to learn is something that all our departments gave us. If IIT Kharagpur was a temple of knowledge then our department is where the main shrine of this temple resides. A visit back to this shrine is sure to bring back the blended feelings of hard work, procrastination, learning and excitement.
Musical Night: Music has been the one thing common in our lives. It has always helped us connect with people. So, we’ll be having The Indian Jam Project to mesmerize us with their melodies. They are sure to surprize us, giving an Indian touch to some of the famous compositions.
Hall Visit: Every KGPian shares a strong bond with their Hall. Visiting a place where we spent the 4 most important years of our life is a stimulus enough to send shivers down our body. The place where we learnt and lived is sure to have latched a fragment of our soul inside it. To come back to our hall of residence is nothing less than a reunion of the parts of our soul. The alumni get the chance to walk through the corridors and reminisce the impressions that they left.
Campus Tour: In the progressive world we live in, there are a lot of changes and yet a lot of constants remain too. The pleasure pulses kick in when we get to see the same old buildings and roads lying in harmony with the new developments all around. Campus Tour is our way of showing the 2200 acre campus in a nutshell and highlighting all the major developments around.
Entertainia: A night brimming with vibrance, A night full of nostalgia.A night so enchanting, A night of Entertainia. Entertainia is the most awaited event of the Meet. It will be a magnificent night wherein the alumni band ‘The Still Waters’ will mesmerize with their melodies and the famous comedian Mr. Sahil Shah will crack everyone up with his humour.
Illumination: An evening of Euphoria as the name suggests fills the hearts of all the people present with a sense of serenity and calm. The Illumination with diyas followed by the release of sky lanterns creates an aura of happiness all around. With all this we will move to the DJ night around the bonfire. That will beautifully escalate the emotions all around and the alumni do “shake a leg”.
2.2 Marathon: The iconic marathon track that our campus possesses is inviting enough for everyone to run their problems off. With the alumni coming back after such a long time the Institute fails not to teach them a thing or two again with the run for health in the 2.2 marathon organized early in the morning. Students and alumni run together to foster the spirit of good health and harmony.
