The stage is set. The Gala Night Begins

Umm….So, we got a little carried away.Aaakhir, dil toh BITSian hain. We were  having our own gala time  at Dubai World Trade Centre. But you would too, with the  glitz and glamour of this Night!

The dazzling lights, the hall embellished in classy  blue and white decor and everyone dressed to the nine-a feast for the eyes! The hall becomes more vivacious with  the mellifluous melody of Ms. Shobhna, the Master of Ceremonies who sings old Hindi  songs that transports us to another world. And those college  memories with our buddies flashes  through our minds.

Vice Chairman  of BGM  2017 Organizing Committee  , Mr. Ashok Galgotia,warmly welcomes everyone. He  is an alumnus of the 1975-1980 batch of BITS Pilani, based in the UAE since 1986. Along with Sri Bharat Narayan ji, he was instrumental in forming the BITS Alumni Association, UAE chapter and organizing events since 1989.

BITSians catch up with the buddies and the oldies. Pictures are clicked. Drinks are shared. Toasts to BITSians are raised.

His excellency, Mr Talmiz Ahmad who  is an IFS officer of the 1974 batch shares his thoughts on how we Indians can advance and prosper. Having served in various positions in Indian foreign missions, he went on to become the Indian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE. He is a recipient of the King Abdul Aziz Medal for his contributions to the promotion of Indo- Saudi relations. He has authored several books and brings to us today his vast and varied experience of life.

 

But what’s a BGM without lots and lots of masti? Incomplete. Unreal. Just not right, right?

Now, it’s time for the students of BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus to showcase their dance  that will leave your feet  tapping to the music. Arya and Pranali, leads of  Western and Eastern Dance groups of BPDC are going to leave us stunned…
