Gentlemen,

Uncharacteristic for me, but have to say that I am somewhat lost for words.

It’s been a wonderful 4/5 days.  Loved every minute of it, including the fact that I had to miss out one full day of fun!  All par for the course.

To all of you who were here for these wonderful few days, it was a treat catching up with you folk, a couple of whom I actually met after all of 5 decades.  To those who were unable to make it, you don’t know what you missed.  The arrangements, all along, were perfect in every way.  A very special thanks to DM & Meenakshi for going the extra mile.  Whether or not we’ll all meet again being a toss-up, I at least have the satisfaction of this meeting.

Stay well, stay happy, stay in touch and (while this may well sound like a cliché) Overcome Evil with Good!

Should anyone of you ever decide to head towards south India, you have a home to come to.

Cheers!

Dear Mr Robinson,

Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful couple of days.

Thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to relive and renew the bonds we have with this wonderful institution which has literally (I proudly say this for myself) crafted our future.

For me, personally, it’s been an experience I wouldn’t have missed for the world. 

Please do also convey my personal thanks to Dorothy for smilingly bearing up with the rowdy bunch.

Should you ever be heading towards the south, we’d love to have you visit us and giving us the opportunity to reciprocate your hospitality.

Best regards

Gurrinder Singh Khanna
(R ’59 – ’69)


Indi,

Very well said!!!  I wholeheartedly second your sentiments. Overall, the entire event will always rank as one of the most memorable events for me.  

A very special thank you to Meenakshi and DM for taking such good care of us and for giving us a fabulous few days in Manali! Also thanks to all who “sponsored “ various events. Your generosity is much appreciated. Most of all thank you to all of you for making the effort to be there at this occasion so that we could reconnect.

Please stay in touch and if your travels bring you to the US, rest assured that you are very welcome to come and stay with us in New Jersey. 

Regards,

Ajay
