Golden Jubilee Reunion -- 19 / 20 Jan, 2002
As a part of IIT Kgp Golden Jubilee Celebrations 2001-2002, reunion of LLR, RK and RP Hall students was organised on 19 and 20 January 2002. Some 16 guys (including 2 Kgp faculty) attended the LLR reunion. During the two days there were several activities such as conducted tours, lunch / dinner at the Hall, variety entertainment programmes at Netaji Auditorium / LLR, bonfire, etc. All of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Almost all the visiting alumni of LLR were from the 70's batches. In RK and RP I found guys from the 60's and 70's. Probably the 'nostalgia factor' takes a quarter of a century to mature!
