Letter from Mr. Vinod Gupta--1967 Batch


In 1962, in my first year at IIT, it was a surreal experience for a 16-year-old from a village in U.P. When I got sick, the guy who took care of me was the Ward Boy in Patel Hall and his name was Papaya. I still remember him.

Even my friend, Bill Clinton told me that when he went to Oxford, the guy that took care of him at Oxford was the Porter, equivalent to a ward boy. When he became President, he did not invite anybody from Oxford for his swearing-in ceremony except that Porter.

It just shows how important they have been in our lives. I call them unsung heroes. This is a time of crisis for them and we need your help.

Please donate generously. I have donated $100,000.
