BITSians have always been known for their
passion in whatever they do and certain noble gestures by the BITS
Alumni of 1975-80 batch goes to reiterate the same. This batch had
jubilee at Pilani in October 2005 and set a new record for the
number of alumni who turned up for the same. After that meeting, the
positive energy of the initiatives that followed was phenomenal and
they have not looked back since. Among other things, a trust
called BITSAA Alumni Trust was formed as a part of their desire of
launching a program called "Giving Back to BITS".
This is the first
time this sort of a venture is being tried out. To quote one of the
BITSians involved in this Our desire is to create something which
the BITS Alumni across the world, irrespective of their batch, would
feel proud of, could contribute (not necessarily only in monetary
terms) and would be able to relate to.
