Dear [first_name],

'Nehru Hall of Residence was opened almost 70 years ago with the motto 'sa vidya ya vimuktaye,' meaning knowledge that leads to liberation of the thought. Since then, the population has increased to almost 500 without any significant improvement in the infrastructure. This project will modernize each and every room, expand the common room, modernize the dining hall and the kitchen; and provide modern amenities necessary for a college of this National stature,' says Ron (Ranbir) Gupta. Ron is one of several Nehruite alumni who are leading this modernization effort.
