Golden Jubilee Reunion of

Class of 1965

 

Dear friends,  

After getting out of IIT, Powai we travelled different paths as per our passions, ambitions and destinies. In the ups and downs of the life we accomplished, achieved and sometimes failed. We travelled across different countries, places and met different persons. We tied knots, raised families and now most of us are at a stage where we are enjoying what we have achieved and are continuing to pursue passions which we could not pursue in professional careers. Is it not fine we share all these experiences of half a century in a place and environment where we built the foundation of our career? What better opportunity to refresh our memories from where it all started?

 

At a Golden Jubilee Reunion of batch of 1965 at Powai Mumbai where not only you will re-bond with whom you lost touch all these years but also spend 2 days at Powai with option to spend 2 more days at picturous setting of Fariyas Lonavala. Reunions are often associated with a bittersweet feeling of nostalgia. It brings back memories and emotions attached with those memories - joy, laughter, sadness, regret - at the same moment.You smile at the young naive boy and off you go on a train of reminiscence. Nostalgia can be triggered off by the slightest of sights, sounds and smells.

On March 10, 1958 Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru planted a knoweldge tree in Powai, are of erstwhile Bombay. By 1965, this tree had grown big having 5 braches, bering nearly 300 fruits, ripened and ready to be plucked of which about half were exported to the USA. As the years passed, this knowledge tree kept growing, developing many branches, producing loads of fruits. So much, so that this tree is indistinguishable now to those who had seen it 50 years ago. You are invited to visit and savour new and hugh 2015 IITB community. 

 

IIT Bombay today:

In the 55 years of its existence, more than 44,000 students have passed out from our glorious institute. This year’s convocation witnessed 2044 degrees being awarded. A sum of Rs. 8.38 crores was received by the institute this year - Rs. 2.83 crores from alumni and Rs. 5.55 crores from corporates.

 

The student population has seen a significant growth as well. IITB plays home to about 8500 students as compared to 1500 in 1965. These students take active part in organizing the two biggest college festivals in Asia - Mood Indigo and Techfest. Our faculty strength has grown from 50 in 1965 to 565 currently. This is the largest by far among all IITs, with most of our faculty being highly renowned in international circles for their outstanding research contributions.

 

More than 10 cultural clubs have come up over the years. Some of the most popular ones are the Photography Club - Pixels, the Dramatics Club, the Fine Arts Club - Rang, the Literary Arts Club - Literati and the Film-making Club - Silverscreen. Other than the cultural clubs, the institute now plays host to some really innovative clubs for those who are interested in analytics, consulting, finance, rubik-cube solving and skating, to mention a few. We were also the first institute in India to support a club for LGBTs - the Saathi Club.

 

Now it is your time to come and re-live those moments, those little moments which taught you to survive, lead life and bring out your inner self.
