A pan-religious prayer-cum-tribute meeting will be held on the 5th of September at the BITS Pilani Goa Campus, which besides falling on the 10th day after Prof. Suresh Ramaswamy's sudden demise, also happens to be `Teachers Day'. In this regard, BITSAA is looking for help from the BITSian fraternity.
Here are ways in which you can contribute :
- You can record a personalized video message for Prof. SuRa and send the video to email@example.com. BITSAA will collate them and send the videos to Prof. SuRa's family.
- BITSAA will be playing a video slideshow of images from Prof. SuRa's life during the tribute meeting. If you have photos with him from your time at BITS, pictures from trips, convocations, batch snaps etc. - please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you mention the context of the picture, your name, batch, people in the picture, and when the picture was taken.
- If you would like to share your thoughts, stories of personal association, anecdotes from your interaction with Prof. SuRa, you can email them to email@example.com. Please make sure you mention your name and your batch.
- You can also tweet your messages using the #profsura hash-tag on twitter.
Apart from the tribute meet on Sept. 5th BITSAA is working on creating an exhaustive commemorative volume, chronicling Prof. SuRa's life. We will include all the pictures, stories that the BITSians send, condolence messages etc. and present the volume to Prof. SuRa's family.
You could also show your support by contributing to the Prof. SuRa Memorial Fund that BITSAA has set up. Click here to know more.
