It was a great experience to be part of JNTU Alumni event held yesterday at Hotel Dasapalla in Hyderabad yesterday.  We had over 250 folks in attendance, with diverse set of crowd from Class of 1975 through Class of 2016.  Though event was planned just a month in advance, core team pulled it off flawlessly, due to precision planning and active campaign via FB, Emails, and specially WhatsApp which allowed the team to reach out to the folks around the world.

Key Note Speakers

Suresh Challa, Class of 1982
Venky Talla, Class of 1988

We got to meet and interact with immensely successful folks in various distinct professions and fields.  Personally, for me it was good to meet to folks from my Class of 1988, and few known folks from Class of 89, and Class 90 too.   It was extra special to have Revanth (my elder kid) who is also part of JNTU and graduating next year, though it wasn’t easy to convince him to attend the event 🙂

I also had chance to prepare a video capsule which documented the inspiring story of Venky Talla, which was unveiled at JNTU Alumni meet today. Venky (my batch mate from JNTU 88) moved from being a weekend Farmer to full time farmer now, and was one of the two key note speakers today. He evangelised the need for Individual Social Responsibility (ISR). He urged all the folks at the meet to adopted an ISR with farming theme. He suggested those who already accumulated some wealth, to buy a 5-acre land and said there are multiple benefits to it. His story was earlier blogged at  https://saichintala.com/2014/06/15/a-day-with-a-farmer/

  • You will stop at least one or two farmers / families from moving from Village to City.
  • You will give them an earning by employing them to take care of the la
  • You grow your own toxic free vegetable
  • You will contribute to reduction in carbon foot print and greener planet
  • You will fulfill the dream of owning and retiring in a farm one day (which most dream about these days)
  • You can actually benefit the appreciation of land value, if you need extra money, on a rainy day

Full details over the weekend.
