And the CaraWAN arrived…

October 14, 2006 - the day when alumni gathered at the institutes' expansive terrace to celebrate and rediscover the spirit of their alma mater. To attend Carawan 06 - the alumni meet.

They came afar to reunite with their fellow batch mates and reminisce the good times they spent with each other at the institute.

The air rife with camaraderie, the meet started off at 7 pm with informal interactions and catch-up sessions. Later, Prof. Dr. Uday Salunkhe, Director, WIM, addressed the gathering and apprised the audience about the latest happenings in the institute and its future plans.

The Welingkar Alumni Meet started off with the theme of the global village. Welingkar students, faculty and alumni have traversed the world. A world map on the stage presented various locations that boast the presence of the Welingkar alumni.

Many of the Welingkar faculty members, who are the alumni also, were felicitated at the reunion. Shri. Lalchand Rajput, Welingkar alumnus was also felicitated by Prof. Dr. Salunkhe.

The day was about ‘All play and no work’. Design games, presented by Design students, were stacked on the side for participants to test their spirits! It was a moment of rejoice not just for the alumni but the faculty also. The News Room was introduced for the alumni to speak on their experiences at Welingkar.

The evening ended with a brief vote of thanks as it truly managed to not only renew old bonds but foster new ones as well.
