GCT Alumni recall Their Student Days
Students of the last batch of the Government College of Technology, Coimbatore, from the then Madras Presidency got together here on Sunday.
After half-a-century, more than 30 men from the 1960 batch came together to celebrate the Golden Jubilee reunion, recalling their pleasant memories of the college, hostel and also the city.
“I have come to meet my friends, to see how they are doing in life and also recollect our student days,” said G. Manoharan, a civil engineer.
To meet his friends, the engineer-turned-financial consultant had come all the way from the U.S.
On stumbling upon P.S. Nilakantan, his batch mate from electrical engineering department, Mr. Manoharan recalled their passion for drama. He said: “We staged plays very often.
And, the play ‘Ashokanin Kaathali’ got us the second prize in an inter-collegiate competition.”
Mr. Nilakantan spoke about the staging of ‘Chanakya’ drama and how Mr. Manoharan always managed to bag important roles.
Addressing the gathering, the chartered electrical engineer said he could not believe they had all crossed 70 years. “I believe am still 28 and have been maintaining the age for the past 40 plus years.”
His classmate V.S. Durai, who had retired from Tata Power, shared with his batch mates that he was ragged even while going to the college for the admission interview.
“The seniors asked why I had come in half-trousers for the interview. I showed the admission post card, which had mentioned the dress code for sports. My reply led me to being a part of the college cricket team.”
S.R. Padmanabhan, an electrical engineer, recalled how he made it to the alumni meet. “I was not in touch with most of my batch mates and was leading a retired life in Mumbai.
The meet organiser K.R.S.A. Subhan, who only knew that I had retired from the Cable Corporation of India, contacted the Chennai branch of the office, got hold of my number and invited me to the meet. I am so touched and happy to be here.”
The reunion had also some interesting moments when an alumnus, while trying to recollect the name of a faculty, mentioned his inimical pronunciation : “What’s the name of the sir, who pronounces unique as uni-q?”
The ‘students’ had a pleasant surprise in R. Palanivelu, their professor.
He was a faculty in the civil engineering department from 1956 to 1979.
He said his white-and-white attire made his students nickname him Mr. White and White.
Mr. Subhan, an electrical engineer, said as first year students they had surveyed the second Peelamedu railway line, which is more or less a reality now.
He added that the Government College of Technology, one of the two Government-run institutions in those days (the other being the Government College of Engineering, Guindy), drew students from South Canara, Malabar and Coimbatore regions of the then Madras Presidency.
The alumni got to see a slideshow of photographs of their student days, the college – then and now, and also Coimbatore.
On a parting note, the members of the 1960 batch vowed to meet in five years’ time.
