Letter from Mr. Puran Dang --1959 Graduate of IIT-KGP

In 1955, I started my life at IIT Kharagpur as a freshman at this great Institute.

About a thousand miles away from my home in New Delhi, I was in a completely new environment. The Ward Boys, Cooks in the Mess, and workers of all kinds were our constant companions. Many of these people came away from home to earn their living and serve us, the students. We felt that they were our family. They were always there to help us.

                                                                                                                                                                                       

Corona Virus has put the whole world upside down and these workers at IIT-Kgp are no exception.

They have no income and are suffering. They helped us and now the time has come when they need us at this moment of great tragedy. As an elder alumnus, I appeal to all alumni to rise to the occasion and save these gentle, poor people.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Let us rise up and make a donation for those who have served us all so nicely.

Let us prove to them that "WE are with You".

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."--Helen Keller

                                                                                                                                                                              

Thank you,
