1965 batch reunion on 26th to 28th December 2014

For  -  1965 batch BITians

Dear Friend,

It’s about 50 years; yes half a century ago we all stepped for the first time in the college and college campus. Very difficult to imagine how a period of 50 years has passed so fast and we have literally completed our active working life (particularly those who were in job/service) and the sweet memory of our good old days at BTI Mesra is fading slowly.

Just to relive the old good memories of our stay at BIT, a Golden Jubilee Alumni Re-Union of our batch, 1965 is being organized at BIT Mesra from December 26 to 28, 2014 (3 days). Mr. R.P.Sahi, our batch mate who is staying at Ranchi, since passing out has done the spade work and correspondence with V.C. and Alumni relation section of BIT to finalize the above dates.

We are sending a copy of the Programme schedule which will be followed on the dates of Re-Union. Very shortly a bank account No. will be intimated to you for deposit/ transfer of participating fee.

We have taken this exercise early to facilitate our batch mates who are staying abroad to finalize their programme well in time.

It is a golden one time opportunity to relive the old sweet memories of BIT with your spouse and must join it to make it a grand success.

Since long, I am pursuing a hobby of collecting contacts of our batch mates and to your surprise I have collected contacts of more than 100. A list has been prepared consisting of spouse name, roll no, branch, cell no, e-mail and city of residence and it is being forwarded to you and you will find it very interesting.

Further, please do send me contact No./ e-mail of any of our batchmate whose name does not appear in the list, it will be of great help to contact maximum batchmates.

Thanking you,
With best wishes for health and happiness
Gurdip Singh & R. P. Shahi

Obituary of Mr. Ambika Singh, 1965 Batch (Electrical)

Ambika Singh, 1965 batch (Electrical), died on Saturday, the 28th June’ 2014 in his home town Pratapgarh, where he has settled after retirement from UP Govt service.

I got information from his son yesterday and was sad, as he was very close. He was in Volley Ball team of collage when I was captain, and he was member of our close group of 10. Unbelievable simple person, got his motorcycle in 4th year which was our common vehicle for 2 years.

After graduation stayed with me and Late D.P.Singh for one and half years in hostel 3 / 5 where I had my temporary accommodation while in faculty. By that time I too had bought motorcycle and we used to go around after I finished my classes.

Dr Pandey helped him in getting job in UP alternate energy dept and he served the full term there.

May God, rest his soul in peace and give courage to his family to bear this loss.

President, BITOSA

Obituary of Mr Virendra Chabbra 1959-63 Batch

It is really very very sad to hear the demise of Our classmate and a good friend Virendra Chabbra at Goa. He belonged to Jaipur.

When, I was working at Jaipur from July 2003 to Sept 2007, I used to search our 1963 classmates of BIT, Mesra who were from Jaipur. I had my old souvenir of 1963, where old address of Virendra was mentioned. As it was a very old address, after searching for several week ends, I went to one shop on MI road, the gentleman redirected me to a shop in front of his shop. When I inquired about Virendra, I was told that yes, they know him and gave his address. One day late in the evening actually night, I could reach his house and met him in his upper floor bedroom. He was resting as he had gone Bypass Surgery just weeks ago ( I cannot remember the year now). I was with him for some time only and we exchanged our memories for a short while. As he was recuperating, I spent little time. That was I saw him last.

During our reunion in October 2013 at Mesra, we were eagerly waiting to receive ( we had received his flight no etc) but at eleventh hour he canceled his program. Now we hear the sad news. It is really very sad and unbelievable. He was a likable personality and I prey to God that his soul rest in peace and God give strength to his wife and all family members to bear this loss.
