New Year Greetings from the Chairman

Dear BITSians,

On behalf of BITSAA, I take great pleasure in wishing all the BITSians and their families a wonderful new year 2016. 

I also take this opportunity to thank you for making 2015 a great year for the BITSian community. Your active involvement and participation are a testimony to the strength of our community and passion for the organization. BITSians around the world have contributed towards our common endeavours in various capacities.

On our annual BITSians' day gatherings, over 5000 BITSians in 26 countries, in over 175 locations, from Sydney to Seattle and from Shanghai to Nairobi, came together to celebrate being BITSians. The activities on this one day is in itself a testimony to our strength as well as the great opportunity in front of us - to come together as a community.

We also disbursed about INR 22 lakh towards faculty excellence awards, graduate application scholarships, student projects awards, travel grants, trophies for excellence in sports, etc. These scholarships along with our initiatives like BITS2MSPHD, BITS2BSCHOOL and career center, have benefited numerous BITSians.

2015 has been a great year. Let's come together and make 2016 even greater. I look forward to your continued passion and commitment to benefit our alumni community and the society around us. During the course of this year, we will also be preparing for our next edition of the BITSAA Global Meet (BGM) that is set to take place from January 5-7, 2017 in Dubai, UAE. Mark your calendars and spread the word!

2016 is going to be an active year for BITSAA and for BITSians and I am excited about it!

With Best Wishes,
Jayan Ramankutty
Chairman, BITSAA International
