    Message from IITRAA President (Contd…)

    In today's competitive environment, educational institutions compete with each other like corporates. Hence more is often not enough. Some alumni

    feel that being a Central Govt. Institution, why should IITR need any other support? One has to only see kind of alumni support some of the older IITs

    are able to get and what all they are able to do with it to pursue excellence. It also helps in improving the ranking. The Institute does need alumni help

    in quite a few areas. Dean of Resources and Alumni (DORA) will be happy to share specifically what these areas are. Please do think of ways and

    means to help the Institute to move faster on the path of excellence. Any help from you, individually and collectively, will be greatly appreciated.

    I wish that you have an enjoyable stay at Roorkee and return with refreshed memories of good old days. I also hope that this event puts a new

    enthusiasm in all to meet each other more regularly after return. I hope you will set a high bench mark in Alumni networking.

    In the end, I wish you a healthy and long life full of happiness.

    With best wishes,

  • UNIVERSITY OF ROORKEE - a review by Shri Shanker Vallabh Pande, B.E., Mechanical, 1959 Batch

    Frequent occurrence of famines due to failure of rains in monsoon-driven agriculture in India especially the one

    that visited the north western part in 1837-38 resulted in large scale distribution of relief to the affected farmers by

    the East India Company. That gave the idea of construction of a canal system from the Ganga river flowing past

    the area in a big way. Col Sir Proby Cautley of the Bengal Engineers was commissioned to plan and construct the

    project, who also proposed to establish a school of civil engineering in Roorkee as an infrastructural work to

    provide necessary local skill for construction of the huge project. In 1847, British colonial Lt Governor Sir James

    Thomason decided to establish in Roorkee, the first Technical School of Asia and the British Empire. And

    therefore, Thomason College of Civil Engineering came into being in 1854 for diploma in civil engineering alone.

    Continued.....

  • The college was re-chartered in 1949 as University of Roorkee by the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawahar

    Lal Nehru. Before that, in 1948 Pt. Nehru visited Roorkee to make up his mind. Our batchmate Jai Prakash

    Agarwal (JP 'Prince'), a student of Class VIII then, accompanied his father to attend the small function on Pt

    Nehru’s visit. He took tea and shook hands with Pt Nehru in the lush green lawns of the college in the company of

    handful of school faculty members plus local dignitaries invited by the Municipal Commissioner of Roorkee. Pt

    Nehru paid another visit to the University to address the 1958 convocation, where in he was awarded an honorary

    doctorate degree.

    Till 1956, when we joined, University of Roorkee had only three disciplines of engineering — Civil, Electrical and
