IIT(ISM) Alumni Get-Together in Minneapolis
The event took place at 6:30 PM on February 26, 2018 at Dancing Ganesha restaurant. Most of us (also SME attendees) gathered at Hilton Hotel lobby and took a few minutes walk in nice cold winter to Dancing Ganesha, where the IIT(ISM) get-together took place. We are doing these get-togethers since 2008 (first social event was in Salt Lake City), so this was our 10th social event in continuation.
Vishal Gupta welcomed everyone. The event followed by formal introduction in ISM way. The group celebrated awards given to ISMites during SME meeting at different events – IMAD division Distinguished Service and SME President Citation award to Abani Samal, SME’s Syd S. and Felicia F. Peng prestigious scholarship award to Neel Gupta and other SME scholarship awards to current IIT(ISM) students. Vishal apprised the alumni of various efforts for scholarships and other activities taken up by ISM alumni association of North America.
It was indeed a joyous occasion, and everyone enjoyed the social get-together. It’s just once a year that we all get-together during SME meeting, alumni come from different states and sometime even travel as far from India to attend this conference and making this evening more special.
With this, I would like to thank alumni to take some time out to celebrate ISMite get-together to cherish the glorious days of IIT(ISM) during SME meeting. It was always a pleasure to have support from senior-most alumni Dr. Madan Singh sir (1956). A special thanks to Raghav Dube who did the hard work finding a place, menu and now our official treasurer for such events.

It is great to see SME meeting participants,
particularly the picture of Dr Madan Singh whom
I had an opportunity meet along time ago when
he was visiting Palo Alto, CA. Thanks.
