IIT Kgp Freshers' Welcome Function -- 1969
In the sixties and the seventies, IIT Kha - Rag - Pur was notorious for ragging. However, during ragging the 'seniors' always used to be on the lookout for talented freshers. The cream of these talented freshers were given their first platform for public performance in IIT Kgp during the official welcome function for freshers at the Netaji Auditorium.
I was not a talented fresher. However, I was impressed by the talent (especially musical) of many of my fellow freshers and took these photographs at the Welcome Function.
