 “Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say good night till it be morrow.”


It is often said that parting with one’s alma mater evokes mixed emotions. On one hand, there is a zest to perform and earn one’s place in the corporate world and on the other hand, losing touch with friends and student life in general makes one despondent. Jubilate, FORE’s annual alumni meet event, seeks to pacify this emotion this by giving its students a chance to reconnect with peers as well as their alma mater.

On 18th October, 2014, FORE School of Management rolled out the red carpet for its students in style with the plush Jaypee Vasant Continental playing host on. Alumni from various batches, dressed in their Sunday best, started pouring in by the minute. They were ushered towards the registration desk by student volunteers.

Emcees for the evening, set the ball rolling by greeting all the guests. The event began formally with the lighting of the diya by Mr. R. C Sharma (President, FORE), Dr. B. B. L Madhukar (Vice-President & Treasurer) and Dr. J K Das (Director, FORE). The three stalwarts then addressed the gathering, with each extending a warm welcome to the institute’s former students and urging them to stay connected with their alma mater.

"Achieve your dreams in life. Take FORE's name ahead. Actively participate in FORE events throughout the year. And do come back in Jubilate 2015"
- J.K. Das, Director, FORE School of Management

Professor-in-charge FAN, Prof. Anupam Narula, was also able to point out the importance of such gatherings for the FORE School of Management alumnus. “FORE alumni have helped to bring transformation over the last 15 years. The FORE Alumni Network along with FORE Alumni Association have become a source of networking, establishing business types, and offering advancement opportunities.”


The FORE Alumni Network (FAN) used the opportunity to recognize former students in four Alumni recognition award categories. Mr. Abhishek Gier (2004 batch) and Ms. Gayatree Anand (2010 batch) were awarded for public contribution. Mr. Sam Chopra (2008 batch) was recognized for his contribution to Alma mater. Mr. Shailesh Dash (1994 batch) was awarded for Entrepreneurship whereas his batch-mate, Mr. Tanoj Sarna, was recognized for Outstanding Executive Leadership.

Away from the dias, people could be seen mingling and reliving old memories. The excitement and camaraderie in the air was palpable. FORE faculty, in full attendance, interacted with their students and took immense pride in listening to the success stories of their mentees. The students on their part relived their own experiences with their favourite professors.

The alumni meet happened simultaneously across three other locations in India. While ITC Grand Central played host to FORE’s alumni in Mumbai, the Bangalore and Kolkata chapters were held at The Goldfinch Hotel and The Taj Bengal, respectively. For those who couldn’t make it to the event, FAN team engaged via a live feed on Facebook and Twitter. The constant stream of updates meant that people were virtually involved throughout the duration of the meet.

Business cards exchanged, promises made to stay connected, memories revisited and some new ones created along the way - Jubilate 2014 had well and truly served its purpose. Kudos to FAN Committee Members and team FAN for pulling off this fantastic event.
