The five year stint at RECW (now NITW) was a memorable one, which is progressively relived multifold constantly and continuously through its various effective Alumni Chapters across India and abroad. These Alumni Chapters are always striving to improve conditions for the Institute and its student body through humanitarian activities, thereby making this world a better place to live in. This is, by far, as a result of good fellowship built up by faculty and students through common understanding.

Truly speaking, we experienced and are continuously experiencing “Unity in Diversity” as Alumni and students of NITW; constantly setting a stage for “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”. The values and background of all the Faculty members and students make this a reality. During our years at RECW, we just had a strong feeling of unity and brotherhood which made every student residing on the campus erase their attachment to their immediate family. The student bond was tremendous. This holds true even today.

The Spring Fest, All India Inter Engineering College Meet are a few events that immediately come to mind, which were unique during those years, putting the Institute on a higher recognition platform. Organizations such as IEEE Student Chapter, Foreign Students Associations brought the outside world closer for innovations and research.

Construction of new structures was an ongoing process. Construction of a Computer Center and a new auditorium were in progress. During those years, the campus could definitely brag about its clean and green environment, with a well maintained plant nursery and a green house, even under extreme water shortage conditions.

Some of the students’ leisure activities, to chill out from the books, were sitting and enjoying a friendly chat or listening to music at the campus canteen or at the eco-friendly cafeteria, over a cup of chai with a dosai and/or bonda.

But the fun still remained outside, at the Chaiwallas, with their special brew along with oldie music, played on a gramophone, of the famed Mukesh Kumar, Hemant Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Lataji, Saigal, Mohd. Rafi, Manna Dey, Ashaji, et al. It was an experience of living both worlds.

With continuous improvement, there has been no end for a culmination for NITW. It is a premier Institute and remains to be an exemplary Institute for many years to come, nationally and globally,  having signed educational pacts with Universities in United Kingdom, United States, France, and Finland.

All this wouldn’t have been possible without assistance from the Ministry of Education of India, U.G.C., an excellent track of Principals, an excellent Faculty for all departments, and last but not least excellent students who come from all walks of life. This synergy works well.

Faculty members who come to mind, instantly, are Professor Ganapathi (Control Systems); Professor Rama Rao (Numerical Analysis); Professor Ram Murthy (Computational Methods); Professor P.S. Sharma (Electrical Machines); Professor T. K. Iyengar (Mathematics); Dr. Govindarajalu (Electronics); Dr. K.V. Lu (Electronics); Professor Subbha Rao (Fluid Mechnics); Dr. P.V. Rao (Power Systems) and the list goes on. Heartiest kudos to the wonderful Faculty members, who taught their specialties so well and who continue doing so. We, as students, enjoyed excellent student/staff relationships by always maintaining a two way communication  thereby avoiding the most common default a student faces, chaos and confusion.

A couple of quotes would be appropriate:

“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in       each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.” ----- John F. Kennedy.

 “Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.” ----- Jawaharlal Nehru.
