CBS recently concluded the annual Alumni Meet, on 29th February 2020. Over a 100 alumni (across batches) attended this meet and reconnected with old friends and acquaintances. The founding principal, Mr. S. S. Gulshan and former principal of the college, Mr. R. M. Singh were invited as the chief guests of the event.
As the invited guests were more familiar with the Jhilmil campus, the new building was a certain thrill for them. Arguably, a large part of this excitement could be the 500-seater auditoriums, which for them meant no theatrics for the VP Chest. Even still, the charm of the old building was alive in the conversations, from Mathela and Maggie Point to the photogenic stairwell.
The programme began with an address by Principal Ma’am. Introducing the guests of honour, she fondly remembered Mr. Gulshan as the youthful spirit whose doors were always open for new ideas from his students. As for Mr. Singh, she said, “His dedication to imbibe discipline as the most important quality for his pupils brought a legacy of dedicated and hardworking students who are leading and innovating all over the globe today”. The college, as a symbol of entrepreneurial zeal with an attitude of walking the extra mile, has its foundational roots in the two visionaries.
The guest list included alumni ranging from the first batch of 1990 to the most recent graduates of 2019, networking and sharing anecdotes. Hopefully, in the future, we can see further cementing of the relationship between CBSites, both past and current, thanks to AROC.
