Rakesh Gupta ('86) has donated $100,000 towards the "A C Pandya Students' Activity Centre" in the Department of Agricultural & Food Engineering at IIT-Kharagpur. The Centre will allow a spot for students to hang out and relax between classes.
Rakesh commented on the establishment of the center:
"GupShup Pavillion (A C Pandya Students' Activity Centre) is a perfect place to make lifelong friendships, dream aloud, and create business plans to change the world. As always Vin (Gupta) who has been my boss, friend, and mentor has come up with a great idea of a Student Activity Center. I am glad I could make a small contribution. Every department should have one!"
If you or a group are interested in building a centre in your department, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
