Description

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Princeton Library where I am these days, most of the time. I had just finished going through Princeton News magazine – a glamorous one indeed – when I received the articles for this upcoming issue. While thanking all those who have contributed, want to make a point as to how we envisage our AlumNews to grow.

It is an occasion, each month, to share the news of what is happening to each of us – our concerns and status – and a reflection out of it, with a view to strengthen our bonds, irrespective of the batch or campus to which we belonged. However, our target is to make it as light and easy a reading as possible, given the hectic schedules o which most are subject.

As our roles differ, our works differ and our perceptions differ, so also the news we share often differs in content and intensity. This particular issue is a clear example of it: moving from picnic spot on the Balasun to the disabled in Bangkok and from Ice climbing in Seoul to Adivasi status rehabilitation in Guwahati. We jointly congratulate the more recent generation of students who have brought laurels to the college, and of course, the faculty who backed them and encouraged their efforts.

Let this attempt to keep connected with one another – wherever we are and whatever we do – flourish and keep bringing joy and cheer to all. The snow that fell a week ago during the winter storm has not yet melted around here.
