More from SP40: Movies (10.02.2013)

March 2, 2013

SP40 celebration for School of Planning on February 10, 2013 saw some known faces and a bunch of visitors even in a rather short alumni meet. Founders looking back over the past 40 years… B. V. Doshi, Christopher Benninger, Y. K. Alagh, Barjor Mehta were all there, in addition to the resident academics, former and present. Some serious networkers as well. Especially those visiting after a long time were emotional. A number of uploads of photo albums before and after had SP alumni revisiting their campus days.

SP40 Convention and ITPI Congress (February 8-10)

First and Second days: 61st ITPI Conference (Themed: Indian Cities in Transition) at University Exhibition Ground and party time in the evening. Third Day: Alumni gathering in C.E.P.T. campus and lunch. Poster Exhibition of Alumni work was too insignificant to discuss, not enough work there. A hastily put together memento. But all in all good as reunions go.
