Author Ruskin Bond was the special guest at the launch of the theme on the official YouTube channel of IIT Kharagpur Springfest 2022.
“The spirit of youth is something that’s worth celebrating. IIT Kharagpur has been doing it now for 63 years ever since 1960 when they first inaugurated and celebrated spring with their Springfest. Springfest is an event with a multitude of celebrations and entertainment, both intellectual and fun. It has become well-known right across the country so that other colleges based in different places can participate. I am delighted that IIT Kharagpur thought of me as a participant in a small way. It is an institute famed across the world and respected everywhere,” Bond said.
“I look forward to this because in my writings and work I have always celebrated the aspirations of youth. I was a young man when I wrote my first book and now 70 years later I may be an old man but I still celebrate the aspirations of young people,” the author said.
