Convocation-06 July 31, 2006

29th July, 2006 was a monumental day in the lives of many of my colleagues(read seniors). the 5th annual convocation of the IIIT was an occasion to cherish for these guys.. But what do they see on reaching the campus? The function’s being held in a rain-soaked ground, the convocation hall being protected by temporary and brittle stands.. prone to the wind. What a contrast for them, who must have been dreaming of receving their passing certificates in the gleaming Gachibowli stadium! Anyways, as one of my friends (i dunno if it was PK or Pagare) put it, hope the convocation’s not held online at our times!!!

Anyways, the function had its share of emotions.. which is expected from the significance of it. The interesting part, of course, was Mr.Kohli’s speech(regarded by many as the father of Indian software industry). His words were tough, but clear.. there is a lot more to be done, and its of no use sitting on our past laurels. It must have also been emotinall for the passin-out dean, Prof. Govindrajulu.

A lot of students were seen around chatting and catching up with old friends. Viswas rao, Gaurav Jain and the others were in their usual elements.. and so were others like Lohia sir(who is soon to leave for the states), Gaurav Somani , Akansh Khurana , Ruchir etc.. Of course, missing from this function were the IIMiets like Aseem, Satvik and others .
