Please block your dates, make your travel reservations, and do plan to be at XLRI for the
Nov 19-20 (Sat-Sun), 2005
I am sending this invitation on behalf of the collective comprising of the
- President, XLRI Alumni Association (Mr Bushen Raina, 73BME & MD, Tata Tinplate),
- President, XLRI Alumni Association - Jamshedpur Chapter (Mr Rana Sinha, 78BMD & MD Telcon), &
- Director, XLRI, Fr N Casimir Raj
...and yours truly;0)
... So please do plan to return to/revisit the roots: have a trip down the memory lane, network with those who passed through the same portals across batches, interact with the current batch and faculty (and old stalwarts in the mess, hostel and staff;0), discuss and participate in what XL and alumni need from - and can do for - each other, etc.... and of course, touch base with the alma mater (remember Bodhi Tree? Dadu's? Evening Dosawala? Enright Hall?;0)
The first Homecoming 2004 was organised last year, with reasonably favourable response from the alumni community... to be honest, we got the brainwave slightly late for many outstation alumni to plan to join in. The information also did not reach many... still, we had a gathering of around 80-100
That is why I am sending this advance invite - I will keep on updating you as the format of the two days gets finalised.
But please do plan to be here for the Homecoming!!
It will be great for all of us to have you here once again
