The Annual General Meeting of the Alumni Association on 18th July 2018


Welcome to

The Alumni Association of the Department of Botany, University of Calcutta has lately been reorganised through the initiative of a few dedicated and energetic Botanists who sincerely feel that the Alumni of this department should play a distinct role in the recurrence of Plant Sciences in recent years. The Association is indeed grateful to Professor N. D. Paria, the Head of the Department of Botany for providing a suitable space for this Association which is responsible for giving some sort of stability to the Association.

The Alumni Association has been meeting periodically through the Reunion of the Past and Present students of this Department, and Reunion function is held every year since its inception more than six decades back. The latter undoubtedly serves its purpose of reviving the relationship, exchange of pleasantries and recounting the sweet memories of the past. However, the reunion for obvious reasons, remains to a great extent limited to the present and recently passed ex-students, excepting a few old alumni. Needless to say that alumnus of this department is distributed all over the globe mostly in academic and through their activities, they are continuously bringing glory to their alma mater.

One of the urgent tasks that the reorganised Association has undertaken is to propose a directory of our alumni - citing their complex address including all means of communication. There is still not a comprehensive directory of all alumni. As such, this activity is to be treated on a priority basis. The cooperation of the entire spectrum of our alumni is imperative in this regard.

As at present, the Association wants to involve itself deeply with the Annual Reunion Function which would keep on strengthening the bond between the past and present students on a continuous basis.

Simultaneously, it is desired to publish a Newsletter highlighting the activities of the Alumni in whatever sphere he/she is engaged in any part of India or abroad. The challenges and constraints which the plant scientists face are also mandated within the activities of the essential. I wish, this newsletter, the mouthpiece of the alumni with successfully fulfill its mandate.

With best wishes to you all,

Prof. A. K. Sharma
