Invitation to ECOSAK-2005 (Jan 9, 2005) at JNTUCE Kakinada - Wednesday, December 22, 2004
Dear Alumnus of JNTU College of Engineering, Kakinada...
I have great pleasure in inviting you cordially to participate with family in the next annual meet of ECOSAK-2005 at Kakinada scheduled for Sunday on the 9th of January, 2005. The occasion, as is meant to recall the reminiscences of the golden days you enjoyed, to recollect the memoirs with friends, who were class-mates, seniors or juniors whom you are going to meet after a long time, share your experiences in different walks of life in search of livelihood, name and fame, since you left the portals of the college to enter the world as a responsible citizen, will be enriched by your enthralling presence. It will also impose a sense of pride and confidence in the young minds of present generation of students when informed about the pedagogy they inherited which will continue to enhance the glory of the college as well as themselves.
The college, in the recent past added a second postgraduate course in each of the five engineering departments. The college has also become an active center for research with a large number of Ph.D. students. A few buildings have emerged in the recent past and a few more are in different stages of construction. In spite of all this growth, the College is having its own drawbacks or deficiencies. The alumni of the College are contributing their might for the development. In this direction, a multi-utility building was constructed during the golden jubilee at a cost of about Rs.20 lakhs with donations of the alumni. One batch of students admitted in 1973 celebrated their silver jubilee of admission here, by bringing their families and spending two days on the campus in 1998. A few more batches delighted all of us by sharing their memories during the last one year. Another batch expressed their desire to be here next year.
In the last general body meeting, it is proposed to raise an amount of minimum Rs. 25 lakhs from the alumni as a contribution to partially meet the expenditure for the construction of a new modern A/c Auditorium for the college estimated to cost around 2 crores. The Vice - Chancellor has promised to grant the balance from the university funds. During the last one year, the efforts made to collect the funds were of no significant consequence.
Much of the efforts were concentrated to establish the contacts with as many alumni as possible. We are only partially successful in our efforts and a lot has to be done even in this direction. However, We are able to establish certain useful linkages. The Diamond Jubilee year is fast approaching, and it is the time to respond quickly and make the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations during 2005-2006 a grand success.
Please confirm your participation and inform your programme. Also please help us reach our ECOSAK family as informing those whom we may not be able to or communicating the addresses of those you know. Your participation this year will help in planning and executing the Diamond Jubilee with glory next year.
Come, be a part of this cherish able sentiment of attachment and reunion . Hoping that you will not disappoint us on 09-01-2005.
