Anil Singh's Report - Visit to BIT Sindri on November 23 - 24

I visited BIT Sindri on November 23, 2014 to participate in BIT AA Sindri Chapter Annual Alumni Meeting, and then again on November 24, 204 to meet with students, faculty members, and tour of the girls and boys hostels, department buildings and look-around of general infrastructure. On both days I was accompanied by my wife Radha, Braj Kumar Singh (life member of BITS AA of NA) and his wife Indrani, and Kumar Arun Singh (Honorary Distinguished Alum of BITS AA of NA). On November 22, we had a Grand Reunion at Bokaro of our 1964 batch mates to celebrate our 50 year of graduation from Sindri.

BIT-Sindri’s new head - Focus now on infrastructure

Utpal Kumar Dey (57), the head of mining engineering at BIT-Sindri and a 1980-batch graduate from Jharkhand’s lone state-run engineering cradle, has become the new director of his alma mater.

The state science and technology department has selected Dey for the job on the basis of seniority after his predecessor S.K. Singh retired last month at the age of 62.

Soon after taking charge on Thursday, Dey spelt out his priority with special emphasis on infrastructure, academic standard, industry relations and placement.

Help adivasis and vanavasi children in India


I am Vijay Kapoor, BIT SIndri '57 to '61 TC. I met many of you two years back, and hope to see you again at the Sept 7 picnic. For the last one year, I have been working on a project to repay Bihar which I am very excited about. Bihar made me educated, mostly at public expense, and anything I can do to repay that debt is hardly enough. I would much appreciate your attention to what I have to say:

Invitation for Articles by Alumni in North America

Wanted 2-page articles by August 31, 2004
BITS NCR ( National Capital Region, India) chapter has its Annual Day on December 07, 2014 in New Delhi.  All alumni are invited. On this occasion a souvenir publication will be released. Again I have been asked to Chair the Souvenir Publication Committee.

Half of the publication is designated North America Special, covering articles from alumni who went to USA or Canada, with only a few dollars in their pocket, having no godfather, faced all the hardships, and still achieved great successes.

Future Annual Meetings 2015 and beyond

Future Annual Meetings should be rotated throughout US and Canada. Most, if not all, of our Annual Meetings have been in the East Coast. Then, we have a substantial gathering in the west coast (California) for at least 3 years. We started Regions in 2013, and we have had successful local gatherings in Atlanta and Detroit. Another one in upstate NY area and/or Toronto is being planned. We are shooting for one in Texas - preferably in Dallas or Houston area. It is time to discuss this matter more objectively.

Enhancing Communication with the Alumni

Dear Alumni,

We want to stop bombarding you with mass email but we need your help first.
Please register yourself at this website (www.bitsindri.org). Our webmaster has updated this website a lot, and we will continue improving it as the most important means of communication. It allows you to engage other alumni and elected directors in whatever is high on your mind.

Other than this site, a website in India, maintained by retired professor Dr P R Prasad is www.bitsindrialumni.org
It is very helpful in capturing news stories in India, and it has links to almost any matter of interest to alumni.
Please stay tuned.
Neil Pundit
President, BITSAA of North America
