Our institute, IITkgp celebrated two occasions on two consecutive days, so I want to call them as ‘Twin days of jubilation’.
Two occasions were ‘Diamond Jubilee of Institute‘ and ’57th Convocation’.
Diamond Jubilee is successful completion of 60 years(1951-2011) of the largest, glorious and most prestigious Institute of India. I feel so proud be part of such an Institute and to be part of this memorable celebration of success.
Every years thousands of engineers,Research scholars,Entrepreneurs are precious resource that Institute contributes to the Nation.
On the day IITkgp ha put up 2011 largest wall calendar which consists of all current and 2011 convocation students on it arranged according to respective Birthdays. It was an appreciable, innovative, exiting idea and so great about the creater.It was an indispensable moment to search and locate our photos on the calendar..:):)
Celebration of the day started with Diamond jubilee Curtain raising in evening , then ETMS(Eastern Technology Music Society) and TDS(Technology Dance Society) production followed by Laser show by MIT .
It was awesome fun that full evening along with special dinner at night.Specialty about this Convocation special dinner is that all the hostels of Institute will prepare same menu and it’s time to show their mess food quality and different tastes.students cam have their food in any of Hall food stalls. Moreover it’s like Reunion for all senior batch students and all students of institute get together for dinner.
All students had lots of fun..:)I specially thank Institute and the designer for the B’day calendar.It was a biggest surprise to see our photos on the largest wall calendar and a pleasure to search our own and friends’ photos..:)
