Dear Mr. Prasad,
Let me first congratulate you on your efforts at putting together the diamond jubilee reunion.
I'm sure that there are more folks who will make decision to join in the coming weeks and in true Indian tradition, they will make their decision at the last week or two!
Regarding my accommodation, I'm coordinating the silver jubilee reunion for my 1988-92 batch and alumni office has allocated a separate block for us.
I hope to see you during the diamond jubilee event.

MY BLOG POST of 14th April 2018 ABOUT MY VISIT TO MANIPAL AND MIT: I have finally made it to Manipal after 43 years and I am extremely happy about it! I visited my Alma mater, Manipal Institute of Technology and my place of residence for five years - Manipal, with my wife, for three days from 2nd April to 4th April 2018. I was at MIT from 1970 to 1975 studying B.E. Electrical Power Course and my brother Dr. N. Lakshminarsu was at Kasturba Medical College from 1967 to 1973 studying Pre-Professional Course and B.D.S. That is quite a strong relationship with Manipal for me and my elder brother and our family. For me this visit to Manipal is akin to a pilgrimage to a holy place, a holy place that gave us education, knowledge, made us professionals and gave us good careers… For more on this, photos and videos you may click on the link below: http://srisrilara.blogspot.in/2018/04/nostalgic-visit-to-my-alma-mater-mit.html

Hi MVL garu,

While I did appreciate the tremendous commitment and effort put in by you with a few of my friends, this probably is the right place to say so. Thank you, very much!

Some of the best moments of my life are spent with MITians and I am so thankful for my parents to have sent me there and to the hundreds of friends and faculty, who have left lasting memories of the campus. It has always been a pleasure to visit Manipal and I look forward to catching up with you and many of my friends.

Thanks to FB and WhatsApp we are able to connect and stay in touch with many even though we may have not physically met after leaving Manipal.

Personally Manipal helped me develop my value system, respect for differing view points and capacity to reach out to people, when in doubt. The camaraderie of Manipal is so unique! Thanks to Dr. TMA Pai and Mr T Ramesh U Pai, who had the vision and strngth to build Manipal.

I have nothing but great admiration for all of you who must have spent lot of time, energy and money for organising this event. Old yearly College Magazines have been carefully scanned, with each issue having atleast 180 pages and uploaded to the website. This care taken just for this one task, lets me appreciate the efforts taken by you all to make the celebrations unforgetable.

Thank you for expecting me to attend the celebrations but I'm sorry I would not able to do so due to personal reasons. Kindly excuse me for my absence.

Wishing a grand success for this great event and very best wishes for all the organizers and participants.

Hi Prasad,

Thanks a lot for all the effort and countless hours you have spent putting this site together and continuing to maintain it as well. We look forward to meeting you in Manipal at the Diamond Jubilee 2017 Celebrations and to catch up with all the folks who will attend.

For those still sitting on the fence my only message to you folks is that you are going to miss a very special event in your lives, perhaps something that you may never witness again. 

I have personally never been back to Manipal after I graduated in 1976. Have kept up with what is happening out there through relatives and friends who are very much my juniors (graduated in the last 5 plus years) and have been highly impressed with how MIT has turned out over the years. Truly something to be proud of, kudos to the foresight of the founders. Even as a student I believed this was one of the best institutions in the country which offered not only an education in the technical field but also a rounded environment to grow and develop oneself to face the world at large.

Thanks Prasad for all your work and dedication. God bless you.

Dear Mr. Prasad, I truly appreciate the effort being made by you in contacting so many of us from MEC/MIT and bringing us together after so many years. The information you have shared earlier with photographs of classmates and college-mates is an extraordinary work.  Sending me the copy of my article from our college magazine of 1973 is really astonishing; it has made me very happy. And now your effort on building the MIT Alumni Website with so much of information is praiseworthy. You stand out among us with this splendid contribution of reviving our college memories and camaraderie. I wish your efforts, our re-union and the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of our college all the best. Thanks and regards, N. Raghu.
