Letter from Mr. Ron (Ranbir) Gupta--1970 Batch and President of the IITKGP Foundation US
When I came to KGP in 1965 from a small village in Haryana, at first, I was overwhelmed...with so many students coming from Public Schools (Private in the US), fluent in English and well-versed in the world politics. But within a year, I got assimilated with all students, faculty and staff primarily because we were helped everyday by the same hard-working mess workers, who fed us; and dhobis who washed our clothes and so on.
Alumni has always been the backbone of IIT, having finished an Alumni Clock Tower and the ADDA projects last year.
Today, these support people, and hundreds of construction workers like the ones who built the projects mentioned above (photos of both projects found below), need our help to survive during the unprecedented Virus that has swept all over the world. Most IIT students have gone back to their villages, towns and cities; but the workers are stuck with no support.
We, the alumni of KGP, owe it to them. Please help,
Ron (Ranbir) Gupta, 1970 Arch/NH
