Class of 63

 

Golden Jubilee Reunion of Class of 1963 

 

Half a century after being transformed by IIT Bombay, from teen-agers, still wet behind the ears, to competent and confident adults, we marched out into the world of academics, corporations and entrepreneurs.  Tasted the sweetness of success and sourness of failure, felt the excitement and thrill at the Pinnacle and the despair and gloom at the nadir, gathered and garnered honoraria and wealth and brick-bats too, and tried in vain, to leave our footprints in the sands of time only to see them whiff away in the lightest of breeze.  Finally, in the evening of our lives Buddha has dawned – we are but mere   mortals born to die. And, in the interim, Nature through our egos makes us do the possible and attempt the impossible for reasons unknown, some call it destiny. Having been there and done that, we now return, during the year of our Golden Jubilee, to where it all really began – the hallowed portals of our Alma Mater to pay homage to the Mater and rejoice at being alive and amongst our own kind.

  Golden Jubilee – Class of 1963 – Nov 24-28, 2013 – SINE QUA NON

       A gathering of friends to renew old acquaintances, reminisce over days gone by,

 savour the good life, laugh at our follies and foibles, and, may be mull over the coming

days. Having completed our working life, these five decades or so, with some degree of

success, we  rejoice, it is our time now to  smell roses, enjoy company of beautiful women –

our wives who have borne and brought  up our children, withstood our whimsies with an

aplomb that irritated us. It is the time to  travel to exotic places with good friends, to engage

in new hobbies, enjoy the bounties of  Nature – great wines, great cuisines, magnificent

vistas.
