What I forgot to tell you on that day??

Being involved with BITOSA for more than 45 years and as the president for 4 years , I wanted to make a very nice parting speech in annual general meeting held on 6th July 2017 but in those moments when you praise your work and bless the new team, I completely forgot many points.

I think we Hindustanis are experts in making a nice parting speech and even those who did not do work for a moment are praised about efficiency and good work done by his/ her innovative ideas.

*I wanted to say that though I used to loose sleep over smaller issues of students and alumni I felt nice to receive mails and phone calls from both. It made me feel part of a huge family.
*Though we could not do much for the students or alumni but one sentence “thank you sir, for the support from alumni’ was very often heard or read and I wanted to say , what a generous family I belong to.

*Those long hours of counselling on phone and many a times in my own home of the students who used to phone while agitated by some minor issues in the institute. The end result of pacifying the anger of youth and some times lying to take it up with the Chairman and assurance of everything would be fine. I wanted to say I would miss those hours.

*I have more than 1200 friends on LinkedIn ,1000 odd on Facebook, 300 + on twitter , 4245 on Alma-connect and 1000 odd on web site and followers on many other sites only from alumni because I accepted their request or sent them request only as they were from BIT. Most of them are students who remain silent after graduation but that is life. When people tell you that you are doing nice job irrespective of your control or who you are actually you develop a sense of complex and it evaporates once you are not so good.
I wanted to say , I hope I do fly even without that hot air which may have been filled up as courtesy .

* I wanted to say that I have been inspired by many seniors and juniors who are doing untiring job to promote our cause without expecting any praise. If I name them here it would be demeaning their great efforts.

*There were few BITOSA family members who were of completely different views and wanted shifting of Head Office from Mesra but for taking views of all members I initiated a chain mail to all and got excellent response( 140 mails) in support of Mesra and 7 mails opposing it. I replied and discussed with all 7 and they accepted our view in the end. I tried for 2 years to convince that now with internet and mail, any one can be office bearer or president with e-voting so why make another body why not manage it ,but some how the difference of opinion persisted.
I wanted to say that I failed miserably in this effort.

* Where ever I went I had some one from family to take care of me as I had some one closed and locked in my mobile. I was stuck up in Hyderabad where my wife was operated upon in Apollo Hospital and 10 units of blood was needed from only friends and relatives. I tried with my known relatives and could mange only 2 units. After 24 hours, I posted this need on BITOSA Whats-app and it took just 24 hours for the hospital to inform me that sir, now we dont need more units. When I went in the blood bank to thank the last two BITans , I was greeted with unknown but smiling faces telling me sir, why thank your own juniors. I had to post STOP on my request on Whats-App as more and more were pouring in.

I wanted to say that ! I felt my eyes wet and it there was no outer storm in that closed ac room.

I wanted to say thank you all…but with the Hyderabad Apollo learning from unknown junior BITans …

I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SAY IT.

Bites from Past… Life in BIT, Mesra in 60s and 70s

The sound of siren was startling for a village boy who has entered the collage campus hesitantly with the local guardian who later explained that this is how the day starts here and even factories. He was trying to compose himself as not to make fool of his local guardian by asking too many question. The huge building with large glasses, shinning Floors, people going around talking in English and large spread of greenery in the last week of July 1965 ,all was proving too much for that 16 years old country boy. It required much self discipline and upbringing to remain calm.

The office opened at 8.10 AM and with the local guardian the boy entered the admission office watching the proceedings of filling forms, fees depositing and allotment of hostel in complete silence. Approximately 3 hours later he was taken to hostel no 3 room 60 and the local guardian introduced him to the hostel clerk as well as the room partner. The enthusiasm filled up with curiosity was leaving him and a hollow feeling was entering with the thought that guardian will be leaving him alone soon. Sensing the discomfort , local guardian took him and his room mate to mess and showed that there are many of our age and of the same class. Since I had one cousin in second year my local guardian told me to contact him in case of any problem.This was a bit comforting and both the roommates bade bye to the local guardian.
