I Said a Mother's Prayer for You

      I said a Mother's Day prayer for you
      to thank the Lord above
      for blessing me with a lifetime
      of your tenderhearted love.

      I thanked God for the caring
      you've shown me through the years,
      for the closeness we've enjoyed
      in time of laughter and of tears.

      And so, I thank you from the heart
      for all you've done for me
      and I bless the Lord for giving me
      the best mother there could be!

Mother's Love

      Her love is like an island
      In life's ocean, vast and wide
      A peaceful, quiet shelter
      From the wind, the rain, the tide.
      'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
      By Patience on the West,
      By tender Counsel on the South
      And on the East by Rest.
      Above it like a beacon light
      Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
      And thro' the changing scenes of life
      I find a haven there.

In All Honor

      "Every man, for the sake of the great
      blessed Mother in Heaven,
      and for the love of his own little mother
      on earth, should handle all womankind gently,
      and hold them in all Honor."

      - Alfred Lord Tennyson

A Mother's Love

      A mother's love! What can compare with it!
      Of all things on earth, it comes nearest
      to divine love in heaven.
      A mother's love means a life's devotion -
      and sometimes a life's sacrifice -
      with but one thought, one hope and one feeling,
      that her children will grow up healthy and strong,
      free from evil habits and able to provide for themselves.
      Her sole wish is that they may do their part like men and women,
      avoid dangers and pitfalls, and when dark hours come,
      trust in Providence to give them strength,
      patience and courage to bear up bravely.
      Happy is the mother when her heart's wish is answered,
      and happy are sons and daughters when they can feel that
      they have contributed to her noble purpose,
      and in some measure, repaid her unceasing,
      unwavering love and devotion.

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.

My admittance to I.Y. College, Jogeshwari came as a total surprise. Well let me put it this way, I had just arrived in India in 1976 for the first time from Afrika, without having the slightest clue what India was all about.

As I was several months late, it was impossible to obtain admission in any science/arts college in Mumbai. Luckily, through some persons suggestion, we were directed to this campus in Jogeshwari. I can recall clearly, the uphill breathtaking and painstaking long walk to the well concealed college and hostel.

This walk, surprisingly enough, helped relieve students from city stress and anxiety and refreshed them for their lectures. The inconspicuous beauty lied chiefly in its lush green surroundings encapsulating the pristine campus, including the mens hostel, gymkhana, and the basketball courts.

I.Y. College had been renowned for its academic excellence and fine faculty, churning out out some fine students in the fields of science and arts. The students came from diversified backgrounds which gave the campus more color.

To my surprise, on passing the F.Y.Science exam (Bombay University) from I.Y. College, the Ministry of Education in New Delhi allotted me an engineering seat in R.E.C. Warangal.

Even after almost thirty years, with Gods grace, the memories of I.Y. College are still vivid. Jogeshwari had been a turning point in my life.

I definitely owe this Institute my gratitude. This site would further jump start memories by sharing former students’ experiences. Thank you Mumbai University, I.Y. College, Faculty members, and students

diverse cultures, good education

Location: Barooch, India

Late Indrakumar Wadhwani was a very close friend. We shared five years, from 1977 to 1982, of good companionship, fellowship, and brotherhood while we were both studying for our  undergraduate studies at NIT Warangal ( former REC Warangal ) in Andhra Pradesh, India. We were hostel mates for four long years, which seemed such a short time with such a  God loving and a compassionate person. He had kept up good interpersonal relations with one and all both on and off campus. I was out of touch with Indrakumar after graduation. A few years ago an inquiry was made for his whereabouts. After a long search by other Alumni members, we eventually were informed that Indrakumar suffered from a sudden terminal illness. This heartbreaking news had taken all by surprise. His dialogues and strong personality are very vivid with all his classmates and hostel mates till today. He sure shall be missed. May his soul rest in peace. Our sincere prayers goes to his loved ones.
