Convocation A Day to Rejoice

____________________ Convocation: A Day to Rejoice ____________________

My alma-mater BITS Pilani held the 2nd Convocation of its Hyderabad campus on 21st July 2013. Hyderabad is a campus in the making. Spread over 220 acres off Shamirpet, it is nature lovers paradise. The drive takes you through tree-lined avenues though I haven't captured it on lens.

Convocation marks end of an era. An era of carefree and bindas life in a University.
It also marks the beginning of another era.
The real life. Life outside the class room.
No classes. No teachers. You are your own teacher.
For rest of your life.

That became serious. Let us get back to some pictures.

At the convocation, met some old buddies after 40 years like Jayant Sogani from Kolkata who works with BK Birla group.

Here are some glimpses of the Convocation with embedded captions.

BITS Alumni Association's Global Meet (BGM) will be held at the same venue from 3rd-5th Jan 2014.
Watch this space for more coverage then.

Hope fellow BITSians were hit with nostalgia seeing campus pictures. As some of you know the 1968-73 batch is revisiting the Pilani campus from 8th to 10th Nov to commemorate 40 years of graduation and bonding! Want to join? Mail us at

Best regards
