Mumbai: With close to a thousand alumni coming together from across the nation and globe, IIT Bombay is hosting the Alumni Day 2010 at its Powai campus to reminisce, to network, to get updated, to get rejuvenated, to reconnect with their alma mater. This years Alumni day is bigger then ever before with the launch of a host of new initiatives. 

Hostel Alumni Team Stewardship Programme: This year Hostel Alumni Team Stewardship Programme which was currently confined to only two hostels will be launched in 10 hostels in the Institute. HATS attempts to reconnect alumni to their old hotels in order and contribute directly to its betterment and welfare not just in Infrastructure but also to assist old mess workers. Henceforth hostel level reunions will be organised in all hostels on every Alumni Day. Money from hundreds of donors has already started pouring in from different corners of the globe and more will be raised on Sunday.

A sun initiative of HATS being launched this year is "Make Hostel my Home" to encourage and empower students to improve their living conditions and facilities. Elected student body would conduct periodic audits of hostel facilities and with the help of the Institute and alumni has established a rotating trophy which would be awarded to the best hostel on campus on cleanliness, hygiene and facilities available.

HATS STARS (Student Achievement in Research & Scholarship) a unique programme  designed to support high achieving students for the next level in their educational continuum by providing support/assistance for their research projects while in IIT.

Launch of the Book "Madhouse: True stories of the Inmates of Hostel 4": The mornings function will also see the launch of the Book "Madhouse: True stories of the Inmates of Hostel 4" we have the launch of Madhouse book  which has been reviewed as the original baap of Three idiots'. A book reading will be conducted by Harsha Bhogle, and Manohar Parrikar ( ex CM GOA  and alumnus from H4)  will explain the rudiments of ticket less travelling to Harsha and Arun Kaul C79 will come riding on a white horse, similar to the one he rode 35 years ago to lectures.

On this occasion IIT Bombay Alumni Association will formally launch "Give One for IIT Bombay for all alumni. Previously, in August this year more than half the graduating batch pledged 1 % of their income to be given on a regular basis. Over the past years IIT Bombay has been very fortunate to get support of over Rs. 100 crore via large sums donated by some very successful alums. The Give One campaign enables those alumni who wish to donate smaller sums to do so over a life time. Our Dean Alumni and Corporate Relations, Prof. A.Q. Contractor has said, "over the years we expect this to become a significant source of alumni donations to IIT Bombay."

Distinguished Service Awards (DSA): This day is also an occasion to announce and present the prestigious DSA to the alumni who have contributed in a notable and sustained manner to the progress of the institute. This year's awardees are:

Pratim Biswas: who has contributed significantly in areas of research collaborating extensively for instance in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Sciences. He was instrumental in setting up IITB's collaboration with Washington University as well as the prestigious McDonnell Research Fellowship which enrols exceptional graduate and professional students & alumni from IITB across all graduate disciplines at Washington University. Professor Biswas is also a key member of FAN (Faculty Alumni Network) which connects alumni, academics, and researchers to ensure that IIT Bombay remains a world class research and teaching institution. Professor Biswas is the Chairman of the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. He has more than 200 publications, has presented several invited presentations nationally and internationally and holds four patents.

Hemant Patel: first launched "In service of the lady" campaign for his Hostel 7 in 2006 to provide financial aid to the mess workers of H7 and to also collect funds for hostel improvements. Subsequently, Hemant extended this campaign to all hostels which saw the formation of an initiative named HATS. (Hostel Alumni Team Stewardship) and is currently spearheading efforts to launch HATS in all hostels by 2010. As an extension of HATS, Hemant has also come up with related initiatives like MHMH (Make Hostel My Home) which aims to empower students to improve living conditions in their hostel. He has also launched STARS-Student Achievement in Research & Scholarship, a program that enables an alumnus to assist/support a team of high achieving student and his research/project advisor. Hemant was also an active volunteer for IITB's Golden Jubilee celebrations.
