Seventh Inter IIT Meet at IIT Kgp in 1969

My batch at Kgp was lucky to witness the VIIth. Inter IIT Meet during our very first year in 1969. And what an exciting Inter IIT it was -- real keen competition in all events with Kgp finally emerging the champions! As a fresher in Kgp I was full of 'enthu', did lots of volunteer work and clicked lots of photos with my ancient 'Yashica'.

When I learnt that IIT Kgp has once again won the Inter IIT Meet during the ongoing Golden Jubilee Celebrations (2001 - 2002), my heart was filled with pride as well as nostalgia. I pulled out my old dusty albums and prepared this pictorial tribute to my alma mater.
