From Perumgayum to Vendayam if you're in search of any sort of Ayurvedic Medicine for any kind of pain Radha's the one to contact. A patient listener to one and all, Radha's not one to keep a grudge though you could mistake her for being a little bit snobbish. When not in an infinitesmal loop of flipping (not the digital kind) she enjoys reading EEE books. After all with an ambition to earn pots and pots of money and to go on exotic cruises, she needs to. 15 March 1 1 93A3PS128 Abhishek Chaudhary S/O Sh.B R Chaoudhary C/o Sh.Kanaram Janjunda Chandaroon, Via Degana, Dt Nagaur. World Cup Cricket in March'96 saw Jat at the peak of his cricket mania raising cain in the common room with his spirited expletives. On the other hand minor disturbances like CDC tests failed to dampen the energy of this happy go lucky jat who was a core member of HAS. Jat knows something about almost everything and rumour has it that Jat swallowed an amplifier when he was a child. To his friends he was loving and dauntless with a terrific sense of humour. 15 September0 0 93A3PS129 Ritesh Kumar Porwal s/O M C Porwal Shri Sadan College Road, Shahpura, Dt Bhilwara - 311404 (Raj). Poru worked so hard he drove other people nuts. But this was one guy you could never dictate to for he always did as he wished. Diminutive poru was a simple and straight forward and not the pretenious kinds. A career in the IAS is what he's looking forward to. 9 August 1 1 93A3PS133 Vidhya Krishnan C-4, Anand Apartments, I-A,I Trust Main Road, Mandavalipakkam, Madras - 600028. Normally docile, VK can be a spitfire if need arises. The epitome of determination and grit, Vidhya hasn't changed as far as values are concerned during her BITSian life. Guided by her influencing faith in the divine power, her determination and perseverance has only increased. A Bharatnatyam dancer who enjoys playing chess and also freaking out, VK wants to go in for higher studies. 26 August 1 1 93A3PS135 Suprigya Babu c/O Mr H N Babu House No 139, Near Grid Station, Old Janipura, Jammu Tawi - 180007 (J&K). Cute little DD (Delicate Darling) was the most `talented' wing singer. Her creative nature spilled into poems, photography, gardening and also palmistry (creative?). A member of the Hindi Press Club, she was also the Mess Secretary and took upon the unenviable task of tickling the BITSian pallette. But taking on challenges comes naturally to this tension queen who will, in probability, take the GRE and go abroad for higher studies. 15 October 1 1 93A3PS136 G Srikanth 104 Fourth Street Karpagam Avenue R A Puram Madras - 600028 His favourite movie is `Speed'. And he wants to run away abroad for an MS. You see, for the Atheletics captain its common to move faster in life by leaps and bounds. Though his friends insist that cutting down his talking speed would help, they also agree that it just facilitates the process of getting to know him better; and a pleasure that is. 18 November 0 1 93A3PS138 Vijayalakshmi R D/O A Ramachandran A4/34, BHEL Township, Kailasapuram, Trichy - 620014. A kiddo and a grandmother rolled in one, affectionately called `Pitchu Patti', that's Viji. She has immense capacity to trip people and put on an "I am so innocent" look when tripped. Responsible for many a cricket victory in a certain boy's hostel (Vijji- it's never too late to know these things), she's indeed a quiet charmer. Among other things her hobbies include learning more about SROMs and oogling at cute looking girls. 10 October 1 1 93A3PS139 Karthik K Al 38 Shanti Coloni Anna Nagar West Madras 600040 Kakoos belives in a handsdown approach to life. This guy holds the record for putting up the maximum number of `Found' notices in the lost and found section. That's what happens when you keep your eyes and ears open. This alertness of Kakoos holds him in good stead in everything that he does apart from getting him treats from grateful friends for collection of misplaced items. A career in Management is in the offing for him. 8 June 0 1 93A3PS142 Bhave Amit Avinash 31, Uma, Irla Lane, Vile Parle (W), Bombay - 400056. Bhave is a true scorpio - intense, emotional and passionate. But small things mattered a lot to him and that means bad news if you've been careless enough to forget his birthday! Hardworking Amit did his best to get what he wanted and saw that he got it too. He likes playing chess and gardening. The future hopefully holds an IIM degree and a beautiful wife ..... a large house..... 7 November 0 1 93A3PS145 Prashanth Rao V 793/D-2, Austin Town Ist Stage, Bangalore - 560047. Hardly anyone suspected Metal had a real name. Rock music's more than a passion with him. He's perfectly lovable- until his music system lets loose at full blast on lazy afternoons or silent nights. He's also blessed with a sharp brain that has made him a good quizzer and was seen on stage during OHT/BOB. He's also fond of TT, golf and swimming; not to mention philately and numismatics! First on his priority list for the future is studying in the US, and close behind is becoming a guitarist or30 August 1 1 93A3PS146 Yerramsetti Ravindra Kumar S/O Sri Y Subba Rao 31-4-11 Gaddepurnachandra Rao Roads Marutinagar Vijayawada - 520004 Ap 14 July 0 0 93A3PS147 Venkata Laxmi N 12-231, Aadarshnagar, Opp I.D.P.L. Colony, Hyderabad - 500037 (AP). Venky's a pragmatist by nature and a very sensible and balanced person. Through years of experience, she managed to perfect the art of decking up her wingies for special occasions. Her love and affection for dogs, sometimes makes her `one and only crush' go green. She intends to settle down with a quiet job and be what she's always been- a darling to everyone else. 11 September1 1 93A3PS148 Vikranth Vemulapalli H No 59A/10-8, K.P.Nagar, Vijayawada - 520008 (AP). 2 February 0 0 93A3PS150 Gondi Srikanth Flat - B Ground Floor H-25 Annanagar East Chennai - 600102 5 August 0 0 93A3PS152 Venkatesh Jayaraman c/O Air Cmdr R Jayaraman Aoc 24 Ed, Air Force Manauri, Allahabad - 212212 (UP). A (gold) fish out of water, that was what "Despo" was in BITS. His Manchester schooling gave him unrealistic expectations of a BITS that turned ou to be desi. He overdid things, some even `three times a time, three times a day'. Though he came to BITS listening to Stone Roses, he left it being a fan of Deva. He remained the laid back and friendly person he was. Wishing him to escape India for the fast life of his dreams. 14 June 0 1 93A3PS154 P G Satish Raghavendran flat No 1 Ii Floor Plot No F37 38 Near Chintamani Annanagar East Madras - 600102 (Tn) 7 July 0 0 93A3PS158 T Ramesh Babu s/O Shri Tvq Prasada Rao Dno 41 13 26 Krishna Lanka Vijayawada - 520013 2 June 0 0 93A3PS159 Vankadara Syamala D/O V Hema Chandra Rao Door No:39-2-15/8, Ist Floor, Labbipet, Vijayawada - 520010. A high pitched voice with lots to say, she's the proverbial `A friend in need is a friend indeed'. A common-room buff (as far as TV goes), she enjoys chatting with friends. With ambitions as sincere as occupying a significant position in society, this innocent girl is sure to stay happy. 9 August 1 1 93A3PS337 Rohit Pathak C/O Lt Gen N.S.Cheema (Retd) 13, Rajouri Marg, B.E.G, East Kirkee, Pune -411003 (Maharashtra). Captain Pathak comes right out of Walter Scott- the chivalrous knight eveready to help the fairer sex. But while he wasn't doing that he was establishing himself as `God' in acads, sports and extracurriculars. Squash team captain, good at wildlife photography and one of those who could state his C.G. without going red in the face, Pathak plans to take up a job and later go into management at the IIMs. 7 July 1 1 93A3PS349 Parikh Kuldeep Navanit 23/24, Parth Bungalows, Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway, Opposite Karnavati Club, Ahmedabad - 380054 (Guj). One-time HAS Sec and Editor EEE Yearbook '97 (My sympathies), Fundu-Phodu wants to set up an enterprise as large as General Electric. One of those `looked-upto' 10 pointers, this innovative and brillant person is full of confidence and is very clear about what he's going to do. Known for his remarkable vocabulary and logic, he's one guy who won't have a problem with competitive exams. So guys, remember his address for future jobs for by now you'd be convinced that his dream enterprise won't re2 September 1 1 93A3PS370 Vikram Kaul HNo 75, Bhagwati Nagar, Canal Road, Jammu Tawi - 180002 (J&K). "Matroo" loves to hate anybody and everybody who hates to love b/w films and old Hindi songs. Always in and out of intresting escapades on campus, Vikram was a star hockey player for the BITS team. His acerbic fusillades were a byword in most circles- he also deserves a place in the Guiness records for the fastest mood swings possible. The true chom that he is, `Kaul' has a truely golden heart and is an ardent fan of Madhubala (MB?). Apna Vikram wants to settle down with a good job and a goo29 July 1 1 93A3PS421 Srinivasan R 25/2, Pudupet Garden Street, Royapettah, Madras - 600014. Srini loves tinkering with anything that's elecronic and playing around with computers. This "whiz kid" maintained a low profile on campus, coming out from undercover only to send people into spasms of laughter with his repertoire of `funny noises' and jokes. One of those who knows that he knows but shows not that he knows, this friendly and understanding fellow wants to become a teacher eventually. 4 December 1 1 93A3PS595 Sandipan Datta C/O Mohitosh Nag 6/88, Bijoygarh, Calcutta - 700032 (WB). Uddi Baba's motto is to take life as it comes. He loves to laze around before tests and to put night-outs afterwards! A big hit with the whole wing, his charismatic personality & 32 carat heart draws people to him. The one thing he really wants to do is to become a millionaire; in US dollars, of course! 23 September1 1 93A3PS596 Nishi Mittal 2, Jyoti Colony, 108 Bazar Road, Trimulgiri PO, Secunderabad - 500015 (AP). This girl with long tresses and a radiant smile, walks tall and confident whereever she goes. Jt Co-ord LED and also part of Photog, Nishi excelled in her acads and lived up to the expectations of all. Though campus provided her with everything, she didn't quite manage to bump into Mr.Right. But an MS in Computer Engineering and career in Information Technology gives ample opportunity to meet new people and still keep cracking tests. 18 October 1 1 93A3PS598 M S S Praveen Plot No:501, Vittalwadi, Hyderabad - 500029 (AP). Nemesis (that's his nickname!) was a person with a creative mind. His love for painting and sketching saw him spending time with Art and Dee. A friendly, ever smiling guy, the only thing he was shy of were classes, though it did not dampen his enthusiasm. Nemesis could never say no to anything and was a good companion no matter what. One of his talents was whistling, loud and shrill! He wants to specialize in VLSI design or communications. 17 June 1 1 93A3PS718 Sodadasi Sudhakar s/O S Abbai Iv/9 Staff Colony Itc Bhadrachalam Paper Boards Ltd Sarapaka - 507128 (Ap) 12 May 0 0 93A3PS901 Sresth Kumar S/O Sh Lekh Raj Ss Railway Station Karnal (Hry) If anything could pull Bahri's charming smile down was the sight of his friends unhappy. BBC loved a good fight anyday! He had many a memorable spat with his friends that should help them remember him! Dashing and well-dressed, he searched long and in vain for a soul mate in Pilani. He finally spent his energy getting his choices elected as Ms.Valentine. He has a very unusual career plan for a BITSian - to join the Indian Air Force. 4 February 1 1 93A3PS902 Umesh Chandra Chejara Vpo Cheeplata, Via Ganeshwar - 332705 Distt Sikar 5 October 0 0 93A3PS904 Chandresh Kumar Jain c/O Mr.Rajesh Jain m/s Bombay Stores, Main Road, Jeypore (Orissa). Hopeful in all adversities (like expecting people to appreciate his singing after forcing them to listen),Chandu's a jovial creature who made friends laugh on demand.Fundu Chandu also represented BITS in chess. However his intelligence was highly stagnant and was reflected in his constant CGPA of 9.7. After BITS Chandu wants to study management. 2 October 1 1 93A3PS907 V R Sundar 256/8 Pioneer Colony Anna Nagar Western Extn Madras - 600101 Virus was definitely striken by the love disease! He was known for the number of crushes he had and all the things he tried out to woo his girls. Few people have totted up as many make-ups in BITS as the happy-go-lucky Virus. A slightly short temper adds colour to this sensitive and helpful guy. Virus believes in thinking positive. After his planned M.S. in Computer Science, he plans to be yet another `computer virus'. 26 September1 1 93A3PS908 Aravindan R Pankaj Vilas 118 Tamarai St Ambal Nagar Parur Madras - 600116 0 0 93A3PS910 R Ravinder Reddy hno 42-227/1 R T C Colony Wanaparthy (Dt) Mahaboobnagar A P Pin - 509103 12 June 0 0 93A4A3057 Kiran S 191-A, Alagesan Road Saibaba Mission Post Coimbatore - 641011 (Tn) Though Kiran makes robos whenever he's bored, there is nothing `artificial' about his intelligence. One of the most brilliant guys of the batch, his exploits at the Robotics lab are legendary. Highly individualistic, he gets inspired by creative people and things. Kiran wants to do an MS (preferably in the technical side, as he puts it) and make many more Hydras see the light of the day. 22 November 1 1 93A4C6179 Vinay Yadav C/O Col. J.S. Yadav (retd) 3825,Sector - 23, Urban Estate, Gurgoan - 120017 (Hry) Jaat is what a Jaat should be - a true fighter. Strong - both physically and emotionally, he shows an exceptionally high degree of dedication to work and lives life on his own self-defined principles. Polite and courteous, this ladies' man got unexpectedly saddled with being the PCR Stuccan (but didn't someone say forture favours the brave). Erratic mood swings and squash are as much a part of Vinay, as his ability to do well in all courses. Vinay still has to make up his mind as to which of h 14 January 1 1 93A4C6260 M P Sabhanayakam #5 Venkatesapuram Colony Extension, Ayanavaram, Madras - 600023 (TN) This guy will be remembered by his friends for his impressive bathing schedule (once a sem!) and for his undying devotion to the common room TV. An abso movie freak (actually anything screened on TV), Sabha is also passionately fond of food - so fond that people believe that he lives for the sole purpose of eating. Sabha specialised in scraping into grades with his lazy but effective attitutde. A good student, he now plans to specialise in the field of Automation. 24 August 1 1 93A4PS026 K S Aravind 7, 6th Cross Street, C.I.T Colony, Mylapore, Madras - 600004 A guy in `control' of everything - his emotions, his brains and most important his senses. Congenial in nature, his outrageous sense of humour and TLA's cracked up his wingies many a time. But come compre time and Kiss is all serious. Kiss was Stuccan Controls '96, Cul-Sec (VK) and also an ardent quizzer. Someone you can always talk to, straight and sensible, his frequent blushes made him look cuter (ladkaa `sarma'ta hai!). Kiss is choosing between Management and Mech at the moment, but either 11 June 0 1 93A4PS080 Divya Poduval M Plot No 1096, Z-Block, 13th Street, Annanagar, Madras - 600040 She's cool about most things in life. With an attitude of "Where there's a will, someone else will find the way" - you gotta be cool. One of the few girls in Mech (by choice!) - that wasn't the only reason she stood out. Her highly striking looks and beautiful eyes won her many a forays on the ramp and into hearts. Socialising, yapping (complete with animated expressions and arm sticking out with thumb tilted backwards), she loves arguing and doesn't care which side she's on - as long as its t 5 October 1 1 93A4PS111 Rohit Sabikhi House No 408,Sector 18A Sector 6, Panchkula,Haryana, 134109.
`Bikes, Boots and Babes' are Sabikhi's passion and knowing how sacked out he is, it's surprising to know that he has one. But Sabikhi is one of those who are born lucky - a good looker with brains (he doesn't tax them too often). Sabikhi was known for his drawl both in walk and talk. Little wonder that he walked the ramps and danced Bhangra during his Bitsian days. With the highest paying job in his batch as a safe option,this guy is looking forward to a career with the Merchant Navy. 17 August 1 1 93A4PS130 Bhavannarayana Avula c/o A V Raghava Rao, Lecturer, SVRM College, Nagaram, Guntur - 522268 (AP) Bava's logic in life is simple - his parents wanted him to study well at BITS. So he did the most natural thing (natural only to him) - topped his batch. Though unaware of it, his extraordinary will-power and strength of character saw him through it. Highly modest, Bava did the occasional `Bone-apart' trick with his hands. Bava's looking forward to a good job in research and design or maybe an MBA...as long as his parents want him to do well...topping isn't a problem. 12 June 1 1 93A4PS137 Suhas R H Pottekat Puthan Madam, P.O. Edapalam, (via) Naduvattam-Pattambi, Palakkad Dist, Kerala - 679308 Suhaas usually appears placid and rarely displays any emotions. But when he chooses to do so (usually when angry) it results in torn shirts and the necessary accompanied violence. This volley player is very consistent in whatever he does and is capable of enormous dedication. Suhaas plans to channelize some of this dedication into social service after he makes a little bit of money. 15 June 1 1 93A4PS162 Vivek House No. 209, Sector 5, Trikuta Nagar, Jammu - 180004 (J&K). All who know him find him warm hearted, fun-loving and extremely helpful with a capacity for getting along with almost anybody. His numerous contis were a natural result of his nature. This extremely busy `RAF' stud also doubled as Mech Prez. Vivek plans to settle down with a job. 15 May 1 1 93A4PS166 Balan S 85F Thiruvalluvar Street S S Colony Madurai - 625016 (Tn) An avid music fan, Balan recoursed to SPB and illyraja classics to weather the tedium of BITSian and Daysci life. A member of the home hockey team, Balan was playing the mridungam as part and parcel of ragamalika. When this guy's not fantasising about ruling the country from the PM's seat in Delhi he's reading up on psychology and of course putting in those regular hours with acads. Though a conscientious worker, Balan is undecided about his future career. 28 April 0 1 93A4PS173 Panpalia Yash Narendra 379, Gandhinagar, Opp Parnakuti Restaurant, North Ambazari Road, Nagpur - 440010 Pampu looks quite innocent and simple. But know him better and you'll start getting stumped by his highly incredible statements, shairis, quotes and suggestions - for Pampu thinks on a totally different plane. Not surprising therefore that Pampu was a member of the BITS team (BOSM '95). A simple guy with firm beliefs, he's got a good Auto job up his sleeves. Pampu's future plan is to set up an industrial unit. 13 June 1 1 93A4PS174 Arpit Kaushik 143-A, Madangir Main Road, Near Police Post, New Delhi - 110062 `DON' was nothing less than an enigma - to the world around him and to himself. The Delhiwala who was mainly from Bangalore but settled in Baroda and finally in Delhi was into calligraphy, sketching, poetry (a fusion of all songs he had heard) and music. But above all he had the Midas touch of turning everything he touched to Gold - be it Arbits (Sec), CF (Prodn Ed), Euphoria Nite (Co-ord) or PCr (Stucc). Arpit loved to be considered tough and cool but proved to be a hilarious entertainer when 5 February 1 1 93A4PS188 Subhash Reddy P Plot No. 53, New Military Colony Extn, Nellore - 524004 (AP) Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee - That's Subhash at baddy, cricket or any other game. A guy who has faced his share of trials and tribulations, he has emerged unscathed due to his strength of character. A very likeable guy who values friends more than anything else, Subhash was H-Rep and captain of the Badminton team. Subhash is all ready for further studies followed by a job. 21 August 1 1 93A4PS194 Swaminathan V 32, Babu Rajendra Prasad Street, West Mambalam, Madras - 600033 Affectionately called `Mutt' by his select circle of friends, Swami was known for his enthusiasm for cricket and music at any time of the day. A highly enthued young man, he was always singing in the bogs, shouting in the corridors and when he wasn't doing these, he chose to mishear others. As innocent as the clay that can be moulded, he has his heart set on a Masters degree in Management. 7 December 1 1 93A4PS200 Subramanian Ravi 28, Green Garden Apts, W T Patil Road, Deonar, Mumbai - 400088 Sec of the Ragamalika during his BITSian tenure, Ravisu's an amazing violinist, who also likes `trying out other musical instruments' as well. One of the undisputed PJ Kings of his batch, people lose out to this guy sometimes - just because he's too cute and innocent to compete with! A very talented mimic, his take-offs on instructors had listeners always in splits. A little bit of football would also help in keeping this Diego happy. Ravisu is looking forward to a career in Mechanical Engineer7 September 1 1 93A4PS203 Deshpande Prasad Shriram Praveen Niwas, Pandurang Colony, Khokadpura, Aurangabad - 431001 Anybody who wants to be enthued in life has to but stick close to Prasad. His optimistic attitude towards life cheers up everyone around him and is sure to win him laurels in the long run. Highly popular in the Maharashtra Mandal (Jt Sec), Mandal was also the Games Sec in his third year (carrom being his forte). He is a person who ends up doing anything he wants to do and sticks to it till the end as well. After doing an MBA from one of the IIMs or Bajaj, `Mandal' plans to gain a few years o 30 March 1 1 93A4PS221 Sriram C s/O S Chandra Sekaran, No 2237 Emergency Quarters SPB Ltd, Cauvery RSPO, Erode - 638007 (TN) Sriram enjoyed his Mechanical Engg courses and considered himself a true Mechite. The odd distractions came in the form of carrom, cricket or saving himself from being stripped by his wingies. This affection by his friends was a natural result of his calm and amicable nature. The lack of girls in his life was more than amply made up by his visual interaction with them as well as time spent with his cotorie. At present, Sriram has `floated' plans to study further in Mech and polish it off with 26 July 1 1 93A4PS223 Devnikar Anupamkumar Bhimashankar 1,Old Adarsh Colony, Ausa Road, Latur - 413531 An innocent and large-hearted person, Anup is often liable to blow his fuse very easily but manages to switch back to normal almost as quickly. A person loaded with `all the funds', though not too confident about it. An indulger in cricket, billiards and snooker, he also enjoys sketching and reading. After graduation Devnikar wants to jump onto the family bandwagon and help his dad in his business. 2 May 1 1 93A4PS228 Abhijit Roy C/O Sri Joy Gopal Roy, At&Po Udala, Dt Mayurbhanj, - 757041 (Ori) Notes that look like print, his characteristic red `gamcha' or his love affair with Hindi music - there are no dearth of memories that one can assocaite with Abhijit. Highly sensitive, this Bengali boy has and always will be very happy with just friends. Definitely very romantic, his forrays into love have been sweet, intense and happy like the man himself. Little wonder that on top of Abhijit's priority list is to get `settled'. 6 June 1 1 93A4PS231 Santosh Kumar Gupta 79,Arya Bhavan, MDU-1, 41-C,Model Town, Haryana.
Skg is a wonderfully warm person whom anyone would love to know well. One of the easy going types he has an extra-ordinary sense of humour with an amazing stock of PJs. The guy who can sell anything intends to start a skud-750cc bike manufacturing unit. Knowing his farts he'd probably do it too. 29 August 1 1 93A4PS233 Venkatesh A Janani Flats, 122-C, TTK Road, Alwarpet, Madras - 600018 An ever-helpful buddy, wingies loved him for more than just `Hero Impact'.

A very friendly and sacked out guy, he can be carefree and untroubled under any circumstances. Slightly shy when it comes to dealing with new people (or instructors!), he denies having done anything but put `laccha', eat and crash througout his BITSian stay. Sec of the Mech Assoc, he doesn't like planning ahead for anything but thinks he wouldn't mind settling down with a job. 23 February 1 1 93A4PS238 Srivatsa D Z-4, CPWD Quarters, Vijayanagar, Bangalore - 560040 Laid-back Vatso is incapable of duplicity. His sense of humour and creativity placed him on the CF team apart from his stint as Cul Sec. Vatso loves to read `non-academic' books, observe people and listen to music. His thoughtfulness and sensitivity has won him many a `lifetime' friend. The future will see him do an MBA/MS, work for sometime and become a best selling novelist who's settled down in Mauritius and intends to live hapilly ever after. Pretty neat story on its own!! 2 August 1 1 93A4PS239 Punit Bhatia c/o S L Mehra, 172-A Heera Panna, Opposite Haji Ali, Mumbai - 400026 Much before Puntya became the `Cute Cossac' (PCr), Photography Club Sec, he spent most of his time falling sick (any illness would do in the first two years), eating Kit-Kats, biscuits and chips and being LMWW (Loney Man in the Wild World). But finally horse-sense prevailed and he became more intersted in Lights and name-sakes of the Chief Ed. When Punit is not reading, clicking or playing squash, he's sleeping. A true gentleman to the core, MBites freaked out on him for his cute `Winnie the P17 June 1 1 93A4PS244 P Nilakantan 313, 7th Main, 4th Cross, HAL III Stage, Bangalore - 560075 Bluks never had to talk too much to express himself but his affectionate nature reached out to all. When not playing football, gymming or working for Rec `n' Acc (Costaan'96), Bluks trips on music or reads. Of course his way of attaining `higher' plains in life is not limited to just these pursuits. This cool-headed guy is looking out for a career in Management... Aerospace... a pilot... anything's possible. 6 January 1 1 93A4PS246 Aveek Kumar Das 166/17, Lake Gardens, Calcutta - 700045 (WB) Aveek is what is known as a TEB - Typical Eccentric Bong, who is the epitome of talent. Great at acads (a `breeze' for him), with girls (gets `blown' off his feet everytime), sex (just hot `air' here!), literature, painting, photography... you name it, this guy's a whiz at it. A regular Don Juan with an immense appetite for beautiful girls, Aveek's crush-list is a virtual "who's who" with a slight bias on the Kashmir problem. Worse, he's got deadly mating calls (Nu-Nu, Goo-Goo) enough to turn 1 January 1 1 93A4PS249 Nagesh Gopal 52/1, 18th Cross, Malleswaram, Bangalore - 560055 This guy's been into almost everything during his BITSian tenure - Joint Sec MEA, Co-ord Apogee, Co-editor Horse Power, member of Senate, C.M.... the list goes on and on. If anything comes close to this long list is the number of girls he's dated. Tremendously moody at times, he's very serious with life. Nagesh intends to go into Management research after his BITSian stint. 12 September1 1 93A4PS258 M Sudheer 301, P Block, Kavitha Apartments, Srinagar Colony, Hyderabad - 500873 MAPS always makes the right impression with his smart, suave and amicable nature. Not many know of his fixation for pens (all lost pens are bound to be found in his room) or his carnivorous nature with a tendency to bite parts of other humans.

The whole series is called Malku(n)di Days. Malco became his name and the rest follows. Very interested in comps, his plans of branching out into that field was supplemented by his comps electives. However he ended up dropping them in favour of Music Nite. But he knows why all this happened because he knows everything - afterall the height of impossibility is Malco accepting he doesn't know something. 26 March 0 1 93A6A1567 Jyotsna K H. No: 238, B. N.

A person who has undergone a sem change in BITS from a wild Oriya guy to mature smart cute lover-boy Gouri. Till the very end he really freaked out on campus though more than once in a while Chacha choudhary was a family man. Highly motivated for academics he had the reputation of being a genius in finance and plans to take Mumbai by storm. All in all a true friend with a soft heart within a rough exterior. 1 July 1 1 93A6C7346 S Ravi Shankar AL- 84, Fourth Street, Eleventh Main Road, Annanagar, Madras - 600040. In one word he could be described as an academician. His life is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and lord Krishna. Very business-like in nature he is still very helpful and a good friend once you cut through the aura. A successful finance career is his goal in life. 27 February 1 1 93A6PS214 Parul Gupta A-33, Amanishah Road, Shastri Nagar, Jaipur- 302016, (RAJ). This good-looker and full time cutie-pie of her group is a highly enthued and jovial girl who has broken many a heart with her lovely (though artificial!) accent.

Obsessed with dogs he has a range of them at home and got to see an ample share in Pilani. With a capacity to impress people with his fundas, Adoo achieved some inroads into the MB fortress (better late than never). His finance knowledge, organisational skills and determination all contribute to a high net asset value which will pay him dividends in a career in 7 August 1 1 93A6PS325 Rajneesh Raina c/O Sh G P Raina, 172- A/D, Gandhi- Nagar, Jammu, Tawi - 180004 (J&K). Baby loved doing the `Scarlett pimpernal' - now you see him now you don't. His wherabouts were a mystery to even his closest friends. Life initally meant fun with the girls- result he was heatbroken every other evening. Highly enthued, generous and psentimental Rajjo claimed to know all in campus except one (himself). But the bubbly kid was capable of credible maturity at times and was never provoked. The future will see Rajoo taste the real world with a job and if needed an MS (Finance) after 4 September 1 1 93A6PS333 K Murali Krishna s/O K S N Murthy NTPC, Qr No D-2/11, PTS, Jyotinagar, Karimnagar Dt - 505215 (AP) A very sweet person he's always discerning people with his charm.

Polished manners and clipped accents come along with Konko (skeletion in Oriya). Very much attracted to the ways of the corporate world his behaviour was moulded corpo style by his dreams of taking the big mac (Mckinsey consultancy) by storm.

A multi-faceted personality, who is a born marketer with the inate gift of the gab. `Anchor person CNN' has numerous passions including music and travelling, but mostly it's sleeping. A trifle too obsessed with his looks and his balding pate, MRC was known for the mane he developed to cover it. A good cricket player, his running commentary during the matches was more essential to the team. This guy with the laid-back attitude wants to indulge in life as much as possible. MRC wants to start off 30 July 1 1 93A6PS354 Ch Ravindranath S/O C Nageswara Rao, Chief Chemist APSEB, Nagarjuna Nagar, A.no-48-15-2/4, Opposite Siddhartha Medical College, Vijayawada - 8 (AP). `Sit back, relax and live life to the fullest' - that's Musili for you.

He is a leader among his friends; occupying various posts (prez andhra samiti) but at the same time very down to earth and a pleasing personality. A guy with quite a few conties with the opposite sex, he is often the topic of discussion amongst them. His only complaint is that he never mastered the art of writing tests in BITS Pilani. But in that he's no exception to most of us. A career in the civil services is what he's looking for. 6 May 1 1 93A6PS412 Kalidindi Pardha Sarathy S/O K Ramakrishnam Raju Kesauaramvari Buildings, Sreerampuram, Bhimavaram Wg Dt - 534202 (AP).

Joes is hazaar enthued about the good things in BITSian life (wonder what those might be?). One of the few responsible people in her gang, she's the wrong person to approach with a problem though. She won't help you solve it, she makes you forget it. Jyothi plays the sitar and believes she's a Ravi Shankar in the making. She's also convinced that she's destined to be the Finance Minister of India or go to the United States. Well, at least she is keeping her choices open! 19 May 1 1 93A6PS438 Sudharsan R 35, SBI Staff Colony, IV Street, Arumbakkam, Madras - 600106 (TN) Though not an introvert, Naina enjoys the time he gets to be by himself and with his R K Narayan books.

Her nickname shows how lovable she is...but when it comes to violence, her blushes hardly tell the tale! Inside this fitness freak, lies a heart of gold and a thoroughly sporting spirit. An enchanting mixture of kiddishness and maturity, her way of being sober and sensible at one moment and cranky and childish at the very next is simply fascinating! Her determination and zest for life will definitely take her places in the future. 31 December 1 1 93A6PS469 S Praba 348/1, Fifth Street, Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam Madras - 600091 (TN) Pepsi'd love to set up a factory that manufactures chocolates, ice-creams and may be even a soft-drink (she'd have to think of a `new' name, though!). One of the `eat, sleep and be merry' crowd, Pepsi likes solving crosswords and playing the sitar. She used to be the early bird that catches the first telephone call to MB which came from across the seas. and was deeply involved in `Ram' bhajans. A tea addict Prabha was always one for fun and frolic and that's the way it'll continue to be. 10 January 1 1 93A6PS472 Amit Kumar Senapaty D-5, PO Donimalai Township, Bellary Dt, Karnataka, 583118. For Sena everything comes naturally. A highly versatile guy who accepted living a life of relative mediocrity in BITS. This sportsman, artist and diplomat has all trappings of a successful manager (contis not withstanding). Friends wish that he puts the razor sharp brain of his to productive use and spare them of his dexterous kunding of every other guy. A person for whom love and romance and all other such things exist only in books, Sena otherwise showed maturity in thoughts which belied h11 August 1 1 93A6PS474 Vivek Himmat Patil G-1 Iii Floor Parsn Nagar 36 Hospital Road Saidapet West Madras - 600015 Patil's BITSian life is characteried by his cricketing prowess, (those toe craking yorkers) his pleasnt voice, his crushes and misses, his vows to give up smoking every others day and his music system which managed to disturb even the subconsciences of his wingies. Capable of creating waves during any discussion with his yet another Patil statement (yaps) he could really concentrate and put night-outs at will.

He invariably leads a group with his clarity of thought and expression. Also called BJ(?)

He's among the few guys in BITS to have a cute boy image in MB (Cho chweet!!!). Inspite of claiming excellent time management skills, he is never on time for any rendevouz(?now what could that be?). His passion for food is the only thing he shares with Jughead Jones. His optimism and self-confidence will take him a long way in reaching the pinnacle of success. 1 March 1 1 93A6PS546 Mathew Maya Mani 4 Rajhans Appartments Tarabai Park Kolhapur Maharashtra Maya's got ornithology on the brain! Quiet, cuddly and cute, this ten pointer (the choice of freshies) who never quite made it is also very lazy. Always willing to help; provided she needn't put down her M&B and get off her horizontal posture, she'd give the guys a run for their money if only she could work a little harder. Slightly obsessed with the prospect of marriage (first it was birds now it's boys!), she lists matrimony as her first and only career interest.

She shouldn't get worried because Rajiv will arrive no doubt, but in his own sweet time! 8 June 1 1 93A6PS609 Venkat Srinivasan 415-A, Majestic Mansion, 1-11-200 Begumpet, Hyderabad - 500016 Attending classes was his way of beating boredom. Kusi excelled at listening because there were too many who talked. Highly principled, his small physique stood in stark contrast to his tall stature.

A fantastic guy for those who know him well enough. He is the veteran of Backstage. The droopy eyes and cool walk was just another aspect of the Marlboro man's personality. Chow might just come back to BITS for an ME and that's definitely good news for this place. 17 May 1 1 93A6PS921 Vinod.S. "Gayathri" Cotton Hill Square, Tagore Nagar, Trivandrum - 695014 Big in size and heart, it's a wonder how he got labelled as Kutty.

GK missed out on tapping some of the many faculties that he had within him in BITS - but intends to make up for it in the future, while pursuing an MS in the States. This one's a different kind of `Bond'. 1 September 1 1 93A7PS012 T Subrahmanyam Sharma S/O TS Manga Rao, Hno1-17-91, Ramanagar Colony, Venkatapuram Trimulghdrry Post, Secunderabad - 500015 (Ap) The quality which sets this person apart from the rest of the crowd is his equanamity. Deeply religious by nature, Sharmaji can bounce back from nowhere when require to. He usually doesn't need to because "he believes in giving everything his best".

One of the most well-known figures on campus, both among staff and students (for different reasons all together), he was addicted to daily trips to C'not. When Ramku was on a roll, be it on the QT cricket pitch or at the carrom board or even on a general `high', its best advised to stand aside and watch.

The future will see him working as a Software Consultant. 5 August 1 1 93A7PS032 Ritwik Bhattacharya 302-A, Somerset Apts, M G Road, Bangalore Ritwick's a Bong, but he's an Illad at heart. A guy with a solid handshake who loves arguing for its own sake.

He was always in demand in his wing, owing to his selfless nature, his genuine concern for people, and oh, of course - his GREAT notes, inspite of having a slightly short fuse! A soothsayer would have probably signed off at this point, saying - this young man is goi 17 February 1 1 93A7PS037 Nasika Ravikanth S/O Dr N Nageswara Rao, H No 5-6-1/1, 1/5 Brodiepet, Guntur - 522002 (AP) Nasika, "The Terminator" used to haunt the CAD lab all the time. His rather grim-sounding alias belies his delicate personality. A very sensitive person, whom friends found slightly child-like, Nasika is one of the chosen few who can play the game by the book - he was always punctual to classes, he worked his way diligently through three and a half years of BITSian life and maintained a meticulous social existence. Wow! He plans to do an M Tech after BITS. 15 September1 1 93A7PS038 Sushma Sri B D/O Dr B S Rao, Sri Chaitanya Jr College, Chaitanya Nagar Tadigadapa, Poranki PO, Vijayawada - 521137 (AP) Sushma is a good dancer who uses her dance expressions to achieve very `animated' conversations. The serious look on her face belies her capacity to lighten up tight situations with her prompt and ever-ready wit, not to mention her contagious smile.

Nicknamed T-man (for the above mentioned reasons) he seems to be the most harried person on campus during any important event or test even if he wasn't involved. But that didn't deny him his credibility of being a very dependable friend who is fun to be with. 12 July 0 1 93A7PS043 J Mahaboob Ali E-23/3, 16th Cross St, Besant Ngar, Madras - 600090 (TN) Sincere, candid and hardworking, Ali is a whiz at programming. A die-hard cricket fan, he manages to maintain a near-complete database on the game. He was never the one to find fault with other people and tried to figure out where he went wrong instead. He plans to pursue higher studies in Software Development after his bachelor studies. 16 October 1 1 93A7PS044 Mohammad Kavitha c/o Sri M K Moinuddin 3-29-55, 7th Lane, Brindavan Gardens, Guntur - 522006, (AP). Sensitive and touchy, this girl never loses a chance to help someone in need. A good dancer who has an obsession for collecting cards, she will be fondly remembered by all her friends as a true sagitarian whose moods range from all colours of the rainbow. She has plans to do her MS abroad and then settle down in India. 7 December 1 1 93A7PS045 Akurathi Raja Sekhar s/O A Rajendra Prasad Principal, Govt Junior College, Addanki, Prakasam Dt - 523201 (AP) This serious-looking yet friendly person had an amazing knack of getting along with his fellow beings. One of his most striking qualities is his perseverance and never-say-die attitude, especially when it came down to acads. Amitabh (angry young man!) is extremely proud of the fervour with which he cracked his semesters and the experience he gained through BITS. He currently plans to do an MS in Software. 20 April 1 1 93A7PS046 Jasti Savithri Devi d/O J P Vittal 6-3-788/A/11 Durga Nagar Colony Ameerpet Hyderabad - 500016 18 April 1 1 93A7PS049 Praveen Ankala S/O A K Rao H.No 9/A, Vengal Rao Nagar, Hyderabad - 500038 (Ap) `Baby' could never wipe that sleepy expression off his face. He managed to keep it all his BITSian life- throughout hours of cracking tests without any apparent effort, throughout sessions of peering out at passers-by from the Budh front wing, throughout years of experimentation with wild hairstyles... A very lazy person, his friends nevertheless vouch for him being one of the fundooest in the batch. 2 October 1 1 93A7PS050 Devaraj Das c/O B B Das H.No C-4, PWD colony, Kohima - 797001 (Nag). DD could always be expected to lighten any serious moment with his tubelight responses. One of the few who could keep up a respectable track record of attending all his classes, his friends knew him to be a great singer who could drive away large crowds with his songs (Door se darshan!). DD plans to take up a job and rise high up the corporate ladder. 22 October 1 1 93A7PS055 Kalyan Chakravarthy Bade S/O Bade Naga Sai Prasada Rao 32-30-5, I Mayor Street, Maruthi Nagar, Vijayawada - 520004 (AP). `Calci' had the enviable fortune of taking two of himself to tests and quizzes! A sportive guy who doesn't play sports, an extremely cheerful and bubbly chap, Calci is never really serious even when he pretends to be and is loved by his friends for this reason. He would like to specialize in his current field of expertise. 6 March 1 1 93A7PS059 Bakshi Amol Bhaskar Pitruchhaya Near Khare Workshop Gokulpeth Nagpur - 440010 (Ms)
13 November 1 1 93A7PS062 Shivajit Mohapatra C/O Bimal Kishore Mohapatra Rajabagicha, Cuttack - 9 (Orissa) Big wristed Mopy modestly claims, he used to just play some lawn tennis in BITS. Well anyhow, he was probably the best at the game BITS has ever seen and was skipper of the home team. Apart from being an ardent sportsman, he was one of the happy-go-lucky-go-happy(!) kind. Mopy believes in enjoying life and reading a lot of novels, especially the ones with babes on the front cover. Mopy plans to appear for the MBA exams, from where he might just disappear and reappear in the IAS scene sometime 23 June 1 1 93A7PS064 Nukala Srinivas c/O Dr N P Sarma 12-2-830/5, Maruti Apartments, Mehdipatnam, Hyderabad - 500028 (AP). Vasu is the good old American Stud. He believes that anything foreign is definitely better than it's Indian counterpart- apart from girls of course. A guy who loves company, he worked for the Dept of Sponz, Professionals and was Ex-com, CSA. Though he can be irritated easily, he never really takes things to heart and is easily forgiving. He wants to study further in Computer Science and finally become a `networking' man. 26 February 1 1 93A7PS065 E S Prasad Chintalapati S/O Ch V S R Krishnaiah Gri Telugu Pandit Zpph School Edara(Post) Agiripalli (Via) Krishna Dt -521211 (Ap) He is highly enthusiastic when something new is started but turns out to be the least interested when it comes to implementing it. Very friendly in nature, he likes to follow convensional things and flip for a girl because he had to. 12 August 0 1 93A7PS066 A Vinay Kumar c/O Prof K Shrinivas Rao 206 Arcadia 3-5-44/1 Eden Garden Ramkote Hyderabad - 500001 (Ap) 12 April 0 0 93A7PS071 R Mahesh c/o Mr. V S Mahadevan, 1-D, Dev Apartments, 13/14, Sundarajan St, Abhiramapuram, Madras - 600018. Ghotu No.1 by all accounts, Mahesh never missed out on enjoying himself. A person with varied interests stretching out all the way from badminton to fabric painting, Mahesh has an opinion to voice on everything under the sun. An absolutely ingenuous character, when he first came to BITS, he well and truly crossed the Rubicon in `esoteric' matters during his stay on campus. He has his heart set on an MS in Comps Graphics in the US. 22 November 1 1 93A7PS072 Rupesh Kumar Porwal s/O M C Porwal Shri Sadan College Road, Shahpura, Bhilwara - 311404 (Rajasthan). `Akbar' believes in simple living and high thinking. An IAS inspirant, he was quite famous for his one-liners which were remarkably well-timed. He is one of a dying breed - the kind that don't take make-ups. Akbar believes in watching the situation closely and bouncing in at the appropriate time. Keep conquering emperor!! 9 August 1 1 93A7PS076 Reena T Mathew `Maniyanghat', 40/1817-A, Shenoy Road, Kaloor, Kochi - 682017 (Kerala). This Smitha Patil look alike is the epitome of elegance and dignity. `Dexterous' Reena is good at playing the piano, table tennis and winning guys hearts (remember the valentine votes). A right-minded girl, she likes doing everything in the right way at right times and in a right manner. Okay! that's the RIGHT attitude! She would like to do her MBA after BITS. 22 May 1 1 93A7PS077 Debjani Chakraborty c/O Dr S P Bhunya Qtr No: C-11, Vani Vihar, Utkal University campus, Bhubaneswar - 751004 (Ori) You could catch Debjani doing anything from reading an `astrophysics' book to looking after her pets. A hard core physics enthusiast, she'd actually like to pursue higher studies in astronomy or astrophysics. A clock-work mouse who spends all her time making schedules she has no time to keep up with, her inexplicable enthusiam for trivia kept her wing ticking all the time. She intends to study physics privately if she misses out on a formal carrer in her pet field.. people out there you needn' 1 January 1 1 93A7PS078 Sumit Mohanty Plot-20 Gautam Nagar, Bhubaneswar - 751014 (Ori). This guy had a very checkered history in BITS. A gregarious person who never refused to play the part of the `Agony Annt'. He was BOSM'95 co-ord for Security. Though he had plans for a career in Management, graduation saw him on the GRE track. He plans to eventually become a Software Consultant. 5 December 1 1 93A7PS081 P Sudharsana Krishnan 118-C, Block-6, Neyveli - 607803 (TN). With a lot of `fuzz' in his logic and ears (!), this guy is the master of the `serious-looks' and stakes his claim at being the coolest. Fuzzy was a `jargod' who will always be remembered for his `Sundermani', Compiler- compiler and aversion for getting bumps! Quick to laugh at his own mistakes, he's one of those rare guys with no ego hassles at all. 13 November 1 1 93A7PS083 Sunanda Lakshmi P H.No 11.10.16. Ammisettivari Street, Kothapet, Vijayawada - 520001, Andhra Pradesh. Always there for you when you're feeling down and out, this giggly, smiling girl is also a great singer and dancer. A painter and sketcher of sorts, she would like to take up fashion designing as a pastime, sometime in the future. Happy-go-lucky and the `I-must-enjoy' type (especially ATN) of person, she puts `marriage above all'. Her other career interests - include doing an MS abroad. 22 August 1 1 93A7PS084 Akkineni Vijaya Lakshmi d/O Akkineni Somayya H No 54-16-8/2, Loyola College Road, Vijayawada - 520008. Always to be spotted with a charming smile on her face, Chinni's a cool, calm girl who has a quick tongue and a desire to tame it! Books, magazines and her interest in art kept this Darling of her wing busy in BITS. She'd like to do her MS abroad and then settle down in India. 3 May 1 1 93A7PS085 Mohammed Irfan HNo 20-2-638/12, Husaine Alam, Hyderabad - 500264. This loud speaker underwent a radical change during his BITSian experience. Always revelling in company, he takes everything sportingly. Impossible to provoke, Mulla's passions arose only when he saw MBites. The one time Cul Sec who was also treasurer of CSA is looking forward to a career in networking. 7 July 1 1 93A7PS086 Dontham Setty Siva Prasad C/O S Vara Prasadarao Malleswara Sweet Stall, Abid Centre, Narsipatnam - 531116. Shiv P was one of those people who managed to patiently sit through years of lending his ear to fellow BITSians. An introspective person by nature, Shiv P believes in `leading a smooth life'. An MS in Software Engineering awaits this `cracker-of-tests-and-jokes' after he leaves campus. 25 July 1 1 93A7PS088 Gopalakrishnan K R 7/7-A, Keelamathur, Pallivasal I St, Madurai - 625009 The parallel computing `daad' of the batch, KRG has a mercurial dispositon and an iron will. He has a natural inclination to the `right', which becomes more pronounced in his wilder moods. His dark glasses, grouchy look and a mean demeanour, all belie his friendly nature. 20 August 1 1 93A7PS090 Bakhru Sunil Jaigopal 296, Hanuman Nagar, Nagpur - 440009 (Ms) Bakhru was always one of the best-dressed guys in town. One of the shy and retiring kind who couldn't say `Boo' to even a goose, he was considered resident `God' of the wing. An editor in Hindi Press while on campus, he now plans to take the CAT and make it big in the Management field. Meanwhile (and afterwards also) he intends to simply enjoy life with all its ups and downs, silently of course... 21 October 1 1 93A7PS093 Saboo Nilam Satyanarayan satyanaryan Hiralal Saboo Engr Manashree Bungalow Pannalal Nagar Amravati - 444605 (Ms) This `Chachi' of BITSians had the Refli as her second home. But don't be deceived by her academic intentions because she's had her share of fun too. With her friendly nature, she'll befriend you even before you'd realise and would've become a victim of her instantaneous orginial shairis. This Chigoor enthusiast enjoys long walks on pleasant evenings, provided she's got the right company!!! 31 March 1 1 93A7PS125 Gawai Sandeep Madhao m S Gawai B 36 Collector Staff Colony Behind New St Stand Akola - 444001 Sandeep remained cool, calm and composed throughout his BITSian life. That's probably because most of it went in sleeping and reading novels. Gawai is a friend of friends and a friend of his enemies also. Sandeep has plans of settling down in India but there may be temperory diversions in the form of GRE. 28 April 0 1 93A7PS143 Brahma Naidu Golla S/O Koteswara Rao Golla, Tondapi Post, Muppalla Mandal, Dt Guntur - 522412 (AP) GB has got a whole lot of plans for the days ahead - he wants to do an MS, but eventually make it to the IAS; apart from having a `virtual plan' to become a detective! A devout Christian, he spent a great deal of his time reading Christian literature, i.e when he wasn't trying to imitate Sherlock Holmes in daily life. A very jovial person, he was sort of the official peace maker and arbitrator around, who could quell any argument merely with his keen sense of humour. GB never quits till he mak 8 April 1 1 93A7PS209 Sowmya K c/O T R Krishnaswamy 2 I Main Road Jeth Nagar Raja Annamalai Puram Madras - 600028 Sowmya's par excellence performance in acads earned her the title of `Fundoo!' and the respect of her fellow BITSians. A source of inspiration for all her friends, she is a gifted singer who has a wonderful voice. Extremely hardworking as well as ambitious, she would be the last person to even think of putting on airs. An MS in Comp.Sci. or Neural Networks awaits her after she graduates. And if you see this very nice girl setting down to play the violon, make sure you keep your criticisms to y 6 July 1 1 93A7PS386 Shreepad Shukla s/O Wg Cdr S M Shukla Commandant Bhonsala Military School, Rambhoomi, Nasik - 422005 (Ms). Shreepad modestly describes himself as a Jack of all trades. Most know him to be a master of all. A whiz at acads, active participant in Hindi theatre, he also claims to have played drums for one song in his first music night. Shreepad's a child at heart who can switch off from his innocent or comic mode to a serious preacher. Every competitor's envy he manages to remain self satisfied. IIM Cal is playing host to him after BITS, but only after a meagre preparation of two months of his sidey's 15 February 1 1 93A7PS597 Renga Rajan S 9, Mangamma Nagar, Sir Rengam, Trichirapalli, Tamilnadu - 620006 Rengs is a very emotional person who gets carried away by his feelings very easily. But he's always there for you if you want some advice or a bit of pep talk. A person whose special tastes include `Biscuits in milk', his strength in `computers' was evenly matched by his weaknesses for `going-on- and-on-and-on...'! If anything can differentiate a man it's his sensitivity and renga was abundant in that. 17 April 1 1 93A7PS713 Janbandhu Chetan Tejram Plot No 56 Madhav Nagar Nagpur - 440010 (Ms) 1 April 0 0 93A7PS715 Boddul Venkatanaga Saiprasad C/O C H Nagabhushanam, Opp Shanti Apts, Vijaywada - 520008 (AP) Prasad believes that life is like an ice-cream - it should be enjoyed before it melts away! Scared that his Bitsian life would melt away, he enjoyed it as much as possible and was reputed to be one of the sackest guys BITS has ever seen. An easy-going, freaked-out character, Prasad was also very well known for his ever-changing hairstyles! His affinity for trouble is matched only by his uncanny (and often unconventional) ability of getting out of it, though I still believe a heart-attack excus 9 August 1 1 93A7PS717 Praveen Kumar Chelli C/O Mrs B Manjulabai, Cobaldpet, II Line, Guntur - 522002 (AP) `CP' has his heart set on becoming Mr.Universe some day! Always cheerful and optimistic, he's virtually oozing with friendliness. While he is slightly inclined to be childish at times, he was a great guy to spend time with. Ask any of his friends! His penchant for sheer hard-work ought to buy him his ticket abroad for higher studies. Praveen tried his hand with Security, Art `n' Dec, NCC and finally APOGEE (for Comp Sci Assoc) before graduating gracefully from BITS. 14 August 1 1 93A7PS903 Yalavarthi Kiran Kumar s/O Y Achyuta Ramaiah Vishnu Priya Nagar, Jaggaiahpet, Krishna Dt - 521175 (AP). Lovingly called `Yakiku', he can be described as a `gentle giant'. Always trying to trip someone or the other he often got tripped himself in the process. But behind the superfluous exterior there is a very religious person at heart. 4 August 0 1 93A8A7180 V Prashant H-30 I, South Avenue, Kamaraj Nagar, Tiruvanmiyur, Madras - 600041 A person who relishes being called a male chauvinist, he is one of the few to whom the adjective `Patriotic' can be appropriately applied. He's got an opinion (pretty strong one too!) on everything but is graceful enough to change it when proved wrong. Balanced and hardworking, he balances (ob!) it with his funloving nature. He's got his heart set on a masters in Comp Sci and a job following that. 4 March 0 0 93A8A7220 T C Omprakaash No 8, Thangaraj Street, Cholavaram Nagar, Chromepet, Madras - 600044 Instru-with-Comps OmP plans to specialise in his `dual' discipline through higher studies abroad. A sincere, hardworking and systematic guy, OmP is also very ambitious. Very freaked-out in the company of close friends, he's usually reserved when it comes to dealing with the rest of the world. To sum it all up, he's the guy who sticks to the rules from the beginning to the very end. Learn to do that and you'll probally top `E-Mech' like him. 2 July 0 0 93A8C5029 Kulkarni Yogish Mangesh "Chirantan", Plot 8/C, Housing Board Colony, Mapusa Bardez, Goa - 403525 One of the most enthued guys in the batch, Yogi - of Bajrang Dal fame and ace Music clubber, has seen it all. From cheerleading to politics, you name it, the Yogi has done it. This very lovable chap's always had his eye an some girl or the other, but never had the guts to propose to any of them. A one time ten pointer this guy loves organisational work and hates to lose (Tends to take the above statement too literally as shown by his repeated politial and quasi-political forays). He's got hi 28 November 0 0 93A8PS101 Bhargava Ruchita Rakesh 6, Apulki, Plot No 34, Dashmesh Nagar, Aurangabad - 431001 (Ms) This cute and mad girl has all kinds of crazy ideas in her head. A very imaginative personality, she is a day-dreamer who has all kinds of plans lined up for herself in life. Ruchi is a very emotional person who tries (not too successfully) to project complete detachment at all times. She wants to be at the top and is likely to go far with her kind of charms and brains. 18 September1 1 93A8PS163 Vijay Gondi FF-3, DVS Apartments, Shyam Nagar, Tikkil Road, Vijayawada-520010 Hats off to the General Secretary of the Batch. Gondi was a very confident person; in any case, he always made up for any lack of confidence through his gift of the gab. A core in Photog and Bajrang Dal(!) Gondi just managed to neglect acads and girls (tough for the attention he got) with all his extracurricular activities. An impressive way of getting things done as well as a flair for management helped Gondi establish himself as a leader of the BITSians. One of the few who could be a politi 27 March 1 1 93A8PS168 R Muralishankar 5-A, Kollachoultry Street, Kanchipuram - 2, Chengai MGR Dt - 631502 (TN) Moosa is always bubbling with confidence and is never willing to admit that he's wrong. While he has a perilous tendency to ignore good advice, he always manages to get things done, by `some means or the other'. Moosa enjoys listening to Tamil songs, watching TV and working for VSS and NSS. The future will probably see Moosa studying further in Instrumentation. 21 November 1 1 93A8PS171 Alshi Manish Madhukar Ghatole Plots, Shankar Nagar, Jathar Peth, Akola - 444005 (Ms) Manish is a very good singer who would have easily made it to the Music Club except that he was too `Alsi' to go for the auditions. Extremely adept at writing project reports he enjoys most things, except of course, studying. A true `HCL' he lived up his `chom-ness' and his surname during his BITSian life. Manish's plan for the future is to do an MBA from any one of `The-Reputed-Institutes'. 16 March 1 1 93A8PS172 Rampurkar Neelesh Satishrao C/O Rampurkar Satish Mukundrao, 40, "Fulrani", Samata Colony, Majalgon, Dt Beed - 431131 (Ms) Whoever said that looks are deceptive reached his conclusion without meeting Nishu. A sweet looking guy, that's essentially what Nishu really is, a very sweet guy. The `Tension man' of the wing, Nishu is said to have a lot of Keeda in him. An ardent fan of Govinda, Nishu's plans for the future like his entire life style are very simple - he intends to settle down with a good job in a good company. 2 June 1 1 93A8PS175 S Karthikeyan B-641, BHEL Township, Ranipet - 632406 (Tn) Karthikeyan alias STUCCA loved dunking baskets (remember those hooked lay-ups?) and played for the BITS team. A down-to-earth, pragmatic person, he has a very loquacious and slurrious tongue which used to catch people's fancies and also landed him in trouble. He feels that BITS not only taught him the importance of learning, but also the importance of not doing it all the time! Karthikeyan's all set to copy Intel and setup a company which manufactures computer hardware. 13 June 1 1 93A8PS181 J Ravi Kumar 19, Adiyapadham Street, Ganesh Convent, Angappa Nayakan Street, Madras - 600001 Mama's trademark was the bushy beard he used to flaunt (I know that the photograph doesn't say so). He likes to talk about aesthetics, make strange noises and twirl the above-mentioned beard. Apart from the above Mama also wants to do his MS in EEE. 11 June 1 1 93A8PS183 Sharmistha Mohanty quarter No 4R-8 Unit 8 In Front Of Ouat Guest House Bhubaneshwar - 751012 This tall Instru engineer is like her name - Mishti (sweet). Sharmistha likes reading books, palms and characters! Swmming, baddy and karate were few of her sporting passions. Affectionate and intelligent, she managed to get along with anybody and everybody. She's also pretty dreamy eyed and poetic - spends considerable time appreciating all things beautiful. But beware when it comes to astrology and Taurean guys. 6 March 1 1 93A8PS185 C Naveen Kumar C/O Anand, AP Housing Board Colony, EWSH - 70, Nalgonda - 508001 (AP) Naveen once had a fling with the students Union as Gandhi H-rep which was the beginning of his experience in the political limelight. Characterised by his fundoo hairstyles, Naveen enjoyed spending time with Sabhi (`h' silent) log. His alternate career plans include signing up as a full time member of the underworld! If not, a nice job and settled married life should do. 4 August 1 1 93A8PS187 Sanghamitra Bhattacharya 6-99/12, HIG-2A, HUDA Colony, PO Chandanagar, Hyderabad - 500138 A perfect conformation of the principle - there's no substitue for hard work, Sang never over-estimates herself and works single-mindedly to attain what she wants. A sweet sensitive lady who's pleasant to know and talk to, she's always there to help you out when you need it (especially true when it comes down to classnotes!). Ambitious and fitted with enough drive and ability to reach out for the best, Sanghamithra is interested in doing her postgraduation in Bio-Medical Instrumentation. 27 May 1 1 93A8PS190 Deepa Soundararajan 6, Jagadeeswar Street, T. Nagar, Madras - 600017. The `Macho' Deepan, the high handed JJ - Deepa has acted out a host of characters in real life apart from being a veteran of half-a-dozen PTM plays. This `Sound' personality has a great passion for anything and everything to do with PEP. Very straightforward and trustworthy, she was a Students Union member as H-Rep of MB and also an ex-com member of PTM. She would like to do an M.S. in Bio-Medical Instrumentation, but would like to be `settled' first. 1 January 1 1 93A8PS192 Anuradha C d/O V. Chandramohan 10, Rajendra Prasad Rd, Nehru Nagar, Chromepet, Madras - 600044. The iron shoulder of her wing, Can's a practical, sensible person who charms everybody with her heart warming smile. Never has she been guilty of half-hearted attempts, be it during work for the `Incontrol' exhibition or when she's playing volley or simply when she's dancing to the beats of everyday rhythm. A very dynamic person her capacity for hardwork and tolerance are sure to see her safely through whatever she does in the future. Can can definitely do it. 5 November 1 1 93A8PS196 Kavitha Gopinath 80, Ganapathy Colony, Mampazha Salai, Trichy - 620005 (TN). A great source of encouragement for her friends and the resident moral booster of her wing, that's K.G. for you. Capable of getting highly emotional at times, she's an integral part of the MB grapevine. She enthued about almost everything possible, from Bharatanatyam to Rap, from serious debates to hot gossip, from E-Mech to Repwri; this girl loves it all.After BITS she wants to try her luck at skinning the CAT! 19 December 1 1 93A8PS199 Vij Pankaj Prithviraj Vij Bhawan, Near NCC Office, Alsi Plots, Akola - 444001 (Ms) This guy's totally sacked-out and a pro gossip-monger. While he's not wandering around aimlessly or gossiping, he was just being a good admirer (read oggling), sleeping or again gossiping! Pankaj likes taking on life as it comes and is never bothered with any of the `downs' that plague the rest of us. Totally oblivious of the consequences of his actions, he tends to be fascinated by any member of the fairer sex. He doesn't seem to have any specific plans for the future, but has ideas of a pros 24 April 1 1 93A8PS204 Anki Reddy Nalamalpu C/O N Nagi Reddy, Gurva Reddy Palem Post, Maddipadu (Via) Prakasam Dt - 523211 (AP) Always in the news for his hare-brained antics, Anki was an otherwise innocent chap whose simplicity does not take away from his hardworking nature. Anki enjoyed the usual mix of BITSian habits - sleeping, reading magazines and watching cricket. Anki wants to go to the US for further studies - preferably an MS in Instrumentation. 14 April 1 1 93A8PS205 Vasireddy Jhansi Lakshmi D/O V Ravi Prasad, LIG-255, Bharatinagar, BHEL, RC Puram, Hyderabad - 500032 (AP) A silent worker and a keen observer with a roving eye, B.Q has a very systematic and methodical approach to everything in life. She analyses every situation, dissects every bit of data she comes across and owes her success at solving problems and cracking acads to her habit of watching TV!! A down-to-earth and perceptive girl she wants to pursue higher studies in management. 25 May 1 1 93A8PS210 R Latha 20, Giri Road, T Nagar, Madras - 600017 Hardworking and determined this girl's got all it takes to reach the top and take the world by storm. Her do-goody looks are deceptive 'coz inside she's got enough hot stuff in her to scare the devil into a screaming fit. Usually patient and reserved, she is liable to burn the establishment down when the sparks set off. However Ms.Fireball managed a soft corner (or two) for Apogee exhibition Co-ords, Costaans and Oasis Stuccans. As for the future, she's bent on studying further in the US. 24 April 1 1 93A8PS211 Nithya Raman 35 Abraham Street Mylapore Madras - 600004 (Tn) 27 November 0 0 93A8PS218 Gujjula Rakesh HNo 5-9-48, Kishanpura, Hanamkonda, Warangal - 506001 (AP). A person who practically lives just for his friends, he's got a heart of gold and a penchant for making his friends feel good while keeping his woes to himself. Raki hated ghoting almost as much as he loved alcohol. He intends to check out whether he's got any entrepreneur blood (alcohol?) in him by setting up an industry on his own. 5 November 1 1 93A8PS226 Surendra Babu Pachipulusu S/O Subbaiah Gupta, LIC Agent, Swarna Road, Chirala, Prakasam Dt - 523155 (AP). Suri claims his entire life is filled with contradictions- what everybody sees in him is not the real him and so on and so forth. But Suri is not a hypocrite in any way, nor does he possess multiple personalities (not taking into acccount the fact that he sports different hairstyles all the time!). A very nice guy at heart, he loves his friends - especially the ones with monitors and keyboards attached to them. A Comps buff, he'd like to become a good Software Engineer. 24 August 1 1 93A8PS227 S Saritha Qr No-H-19 P&T Quarters Chikkadapally Hyderabad - 500020 About as bubbly as they ever get, Sari's an extremely enthued girl with apparently unlimited energy and zest for life.

Sec of the Assoc,Kash believes in `never letting studies hinder education!' Romanticism is his forte and with a whacko sense of humour this Comps whiz (also a compulsive workaholic) is a great friend to have around.

He is the kind of guy who likes overcoming the odds through persevearance and sheer effort. 21 May 1 1 93A8PS257 Sabya Sachi Kar C/O Mr Rabindranath Nath Kar Muhammadia Bazaar, Cuttack. This gutcha-chewing cartoonist was renowned for his creativity and imagination. While some of it spilled over into campus mags during his tenure as English Press Co-ord (BOSM 96), most of it was reserved for his super farts and stories; some so unbelievable that even first timers sniffed. This Elvis look alike has gone on innumerable fitness drives though most were in vain. Sabhya wants it to be put down on record that he never `put fight' for an MB-ite; just another of his stories.

Renu intends to stick it out in good ol' Pilani itself after graduation- he'd like to do his ME with a TA-ship. Art-N-Dec, PAP, ARC could definitely do with more of his service. He has tried his hand at a lot of things including politics and is currently working towards establishing a Guiness Record for the maximum no of crushes ever. A guy who's very frank, almost brutally at times, he's essentially a very sacked-out guy who trips on `the simple things' in life. He is interested in launching 26 January 1 1 93A8PS601 M Benjamin Devanand Kumar Penuel Villa, 37 MIG, KPHB Colony, Hyderabad - 500072 (AP). Benji was co-ordinator for INCONTROL '96 and steered the Instru exhibition to the first prize that year. A man of ideals and principles, Benji spends his spare time sketching, doing calligraphic work and cracking `BJs' (Benji Jokes!). Benji believes BITS has taught him a great deal about life. The most reliable `alarm clock' of the wing, Benji has very specific ideas regarding the job that he wants. He's adamant that its got to be a `technical yet management job with a software background'. 10 December 1 1 93A8PS911 Gayathri Gopalakrishnan 4, Muthiah Mudali, II St, Royapettah, Madras - 600014 There are quite a few guys who could kill for her.

The future lies in Environmental Engineering for her; coupled along with some social service. 25 December 1 1 93B1A1477 Jaya Venugopal F-87, Green Park(Main), New Delhi - 110016. This `Tension Queen' can make friends with amazing ease, thanks to her non-stop chatter, `dramatic' conversations and understanding, patient nature. With a voice to be remembered ( Made in India...), she not only excels in singing but also enjoys writing poetry and short stories. This avid basket-ball fan is aiming for `victory' in whatever she does in life. 18 May 1 1 93B1A1494 Prashanth Vishwanath c/O P N Viswanathan Psg Tam Flats, 29/32, North Mada St, Saidapet, Madras - 600015. PeeVee III didn't speak to even one girl in BITS in his first year. By his fourth year there wasn't one whom he hadn't spoken to. To achieve this P.V developed his own philosophy - "Avoid wine, women and song - mostly wine". The only thing which changed as fast as his `special' friends were his career interests. P.V was a dualite who wanted to stay in VK for reasons known. An excellent photographer, he specialized in special effects; unwittingly.

An extremely frank person by nature, she has always known what she wanted. Niru loves taking long walks early in the mornings (and also in the evenings) supposedly for bird watching (feather? no fabric). Being an extremely sensitive person, she hates people coming too close to her. She's fascinated by a wide variety of things including geometrical objects and Yanni.She's not missed a single Raagamalika violin concert for obvious reasons. Loves B'day songs the most and hence has more than one B 9 November 1 1 93B1A1642 B.S.

Art`n'D was glad to use his services as a painter during his BITSian stay (remember the 39ftx9ft backdrop for Apogee). Capable of violent mood swings, Linglee can drive you mad with his eccentricity. To escape from this feed him a `cookie' now and then. This workaholic wants to make a contribution in the field of viral diseases.

And when Dabba's not tripping people, someone in the wing usually gets richer by placing bets with him. Though capable of playing football and cricket, Dabba usually keeps fit with brisk `walks' around campus with a prescribed diet of coffee-bites. We wish him all the best in his efforts to find his `Sapnon ki Rani' - if not in B 3 July 1 1 93B1A3518 V Kripa "Karpagam", No 4, Muthuram Mudali Street, Mylapore, Madras - 600004. With a wacky sense of humour and remarkable rattling skills, she has won every argument solely because the opponent gets tired of talking. Her love for EEE gave her a baby- ACDC'97, which she tended with such great care and passion that even much after the exhibition was over, she entered M-83 through a window and took an afternoon nap. Her South Indian looks and culinary skills make her a perfectly lovable Agraharam wife. 25 February 1 1 93B1A3662 T Jahnavi Latha d/O T Satyanarayana H.No 11-11-101/2 Telephone Colony, R K Puram, Hyderabad - 500635 (AP). `Treat queen, contee queen, bio stud (ghotu Mahalakshmi)' and a very enthued character - that's Jaan for you. Capable of being horrendously lazy at times, she makes up for this through occasional bursts of energy. Though one might be inclined to think that this frank girl doesn't give a damn about anything, she's actually a very sensitive and sweet person. She was also an ex-com member of Andhra Samiti and Jt-Sec of the Bio Assoc.

The Cacophonix of the wing he would do Chaurasia proud. Apart from quzzing and tennis, he has the amazing ability to spend time doing nothing and earning his wingies' ire, by switching sides in any argument. Jing's usually great company but only till he picks up the flute. Before parting Jing has one word of advice to every one - " Do not open Greeting car 15 December 1 1 93B1A4516 R Srividya 7 Besant Road Royapettah Madras - 600014 26 November 0 0 93B1A5191 Srividya N 298, Sri Sai Sadan, TTk Road, Alwarpet, Madras - 600018. Her broad smile hides a mile of deep emotions and her puerile behaviour makes people take undue advantage of her. She can easily beat Kumbakarna in a sleeping contest and requires bugles and trumpets to wake her up after sixteen long hours of peaceful crashing. This Parameshwar Godrej of BITS loves socialising and has an insatiable appetite for Kapoor's tomato curry and chilly paneer. Her most ardent admirer is the MB night duty chowki who always keeps the gate open for her and her only at 11: 16 December 1 1 93B1A5535 Sujatha L 140 V M Street Vasanth Apartnments Ii Floor No 7 Royapettah Madras - 600014 14 August 0 0 93B1A5653 Sayee Priyadarshini A T 49, Rangarajapuram Main Road, Kodambakkam, Madras - 600024 (TN).

Sayee plans to do her PhD after BITS and contribute to her chosen discipline. 30 May 1 1 93B1A5926 Karthik Ramani veena Apartments 60 2Nd Main Road Gandhi Nagar Adayar Madras - 600020 As a girl once said, Karamani was the campus' most eligible bachelor, but he certainly was not happy that he remained so till the end. Often wacky and wild, Karamani burst into songs at most `inappropriate' moments. He coordinated the Apogee'96 BioSci `models' with great enthusiasm. A talented mridangamist, his career options are either research in Biology or playing a lead in a JagMundhra film. 23 May 1 1 93B1A6652 K Lakshmi 44, Gengu Reddy Road, First Floor, Egmore, Madras - 600008 (TN). They say you don't see the likes of them too often in BITS. She lives exactly as she wants to - on the ramp and dance floor. Very, very popular with the guys, it was only the girls who got to avail of her solid shoulders when they needed it most. Loudspeaker of the wing (complete with the cackle), she's usually very lovable; but rub her on the wrongside and... Part of the BITS athletic team, Lux just trips on any kind of music.

She's never got more than she can handle; but she's got a lot - Crac, Music Club, Ragamalika, PAP to name a few. Inspite of so many things on her head she's always got enough room in her heart for her friends. Impeccable manners, Thames vibes, right and fast talk have won many a heart for her and irritated them occassionally. A research career in Molecular Biology is awaiting her after BITS. 11 August 1 1 93B1A7394 K Saratchand b-2 Nitya Appartments Second Main Road Gandhi Nagar Adyar Madras - 600020 Kolla's lucky number was 10 and his BITSian life was dictated by this. Examples:- He had breakfast 10 times a week. Having learnt karate for 10 years he made an unfortunate decision to practice on the bhawan's walls which stands in ruins now. His 10 close friends knew him as a multi-faceted personality whose second (!?!) love was chocolates. After being mentally and psychologically prepared for the world in BITS, taking the GRE is the natural option for him. Ten years down the line he is one g 20 July 1 1 93B1A7660 Saad Yunus Sait T 68 Annanagar West Madras - 600040 (Tn) Highly systematic and meticulous no one has possibly asked the question "Why?" more insistantly. To solve his doubts he resorted to prolonged and intense ghoting sessions. A natural scientist was born in this process who now wants to pursue higher studies in Computer Science. To his wingies Saad will also be remembered for his jokes, appreciation of them and definition of one which were always a source of humour. 25 March 1 1 93B1A7665 Rohit Sah B 47 Gulmohar Park New Delhi - 110049 An absurd critic of jokes, the ever-smiling Gomska's unique (non)sense of humour was detrimental for all wisecracks around. Music to him was a 11pm BBC News broadcast, the soft lilting tunes of Daler Mehendi and Baba Sehgal. With his sexy legs, we all feel his career should really have been on the ramp, or may be as he fantasizes in a squash court. Hope he doesn't get distracted from his ambitions by his natural prowess in software. 24 January 1 1 93B1PS464 S Karpagam 14, Kabali Sannidhi Street, Mylapore, Madras - 600004 (TN). She's the right person to be with when you feel that the world's against you - she'll take 'em on singlehanded. With a never-say-die spirit and I-care-a-damn attitude, she decides what she wants and charges on full throttle. Short stories, poetry, nature and long walks give her the opportunity to bare her soul. Doctoral study in Developmental Biology/ Microbial Genetics is what her immediate career plans are. Don't you dare her on that one. Has anyone ever dared the devil? 2 January 1 1 93B1PS821 Veerama Chaneni Kranthi D/O Mrs K Aruna H No 212 D Vidya Vihar Pilani - 333031 (Raj) 23 December 0 0 93B1PS923 Janani V H.No 15, Subramania Nagar, Second Street, Kodambakkam, Madras - 600024 (TN). Totally trustworthy and honest, Jan's been the confidante of many a friend. There's no airs about this girl. Probably because she's got her feet firmly on the ground and is extremely sensible. Funloving in a modest, moderate sort of way, Jan's a great sport and is usually impossible to offend. A true Bio-Sciite, Jan would like to study further and specialise in either MicroBiology or Genetics. 30 January 1 1 93B1PS515 Siva R Sundaresan 13 First Cross St Rarpagam Gardens Adyar Madras - 600020 10 September0 0 93B2A1437 M Murali Krishnan 71, Sydenhams Road, Periamet, Madras - 600003 (TN). Big Moose, one man army, Commando - you can know him by many names. This is one guy with independent thoughts and principles. Little wonder that he excelled in Security and was responsible for many a guy's involuntary sober music nites. Moose was also Veg sec and in the SMC. This hardworking and sincere guy wants to pursue a career in the IIMs, (It's not Indian Institute of Military!). 13 October 1 1 93B2A1633 T V Srinivas Plot No 468, B N Reddy Nagar, Sagar Road, Hyderabad - 500070 (AP).

Better known as PONDY for reasons unknown, Balaji was known for his good vocabulary, selfadmiration and ficklemindedness. The guy with a pure mind and good heart plans to pursue a career in Environmental Engg (as of now) while involving himself in diverse fields like Mass communications and English literature. In his own words, he has matured from a sapling to a flourishing tree in BITS. 1 January 1 1 93B2A3499 Vijaya Bhaskar R 26-1219, Vadapalem, Nellore - 524004 (AP). Bhaski has had a couple of crushes in BITS but he's always attracted more guys with his cute nature and sexy hair-style. Another plausible reason is his ability to teach other people. Truely justifying his knowledge, Vijay was the Co-ordinator of the Chemistry exhibition in Apogee. This hard-working guy plans to do his MS in the US. 14 June 1 1 93B2A3511 S Karthikeyan 273, Lakshmanaswamy Salai, K K Nagar, Madras - 600078 (TN).

With no time for nonsense and not the `flowery' kinds Janaki believed in hardwork and determination to see her through life. Involved in music, be it Music Club or Ragamalika, Janaki enjoys being on the other side of the mike too. Though her immediate plans are to take up a job, her friends are just waiting to see her married. 11 July 1 1 93B2A3533 V N Srinivas Polisetty S/O Brahmanandam, Medical Stores, Prakasam (Dt), Idupulapadu (Post) - 523190 (AP) PUN had a `special' library collection of his own. Little wonder you couldn't spot him outside his room. But that'd be probably be because of his ghotting needs for tests. He likes listening to classical music, watching TV and playing carrom. His plans are to pursue higher studies and then a job. 19 March 1 1 93B2A3628 Rao Harshraj Murlidhar 44, Paridhi Apartments, Kolbad Road, Thane - (west), Mumbai, Maharashtra Master of all trades and jack of none - that's the way he sounds.

Normally shy, he has a good sense of humour. Hostel Representative in his fourth year, he would like to remember his ragging period and courses like TP and Gen B with nostalgia. Ravi wants to do an MS in Instrumentation Engg after BITS. 2 May 1 1 93B2A8553 Kum. Shweta Gaur D/O Suresh Chand Gaur, Head, Dept of Chemistry, Chirawa College, Chirawa, Jhunjhunu Dt - 333026 (Raj) Shweta is simply sick and tired of five years of academics and is looking forward to settling down with a good and handsome hubby as fast as possible. A child in the company of her friends she's always a woman for the guys. As for her BITSian life - she spent more time at the audi and C'not freaking out than with her D courses - something she's incidentally proud of! One of the very few people who managed to put on weight even after hushing all meals she plans to prosper equally in life. 9 June 0 1 93B2A8637 K Priya C-36, BHEL Township, Zone 1, NA (A) Dt, Ranipet - 632406 (TN) Kutti Chataan, the small devil as Priya is called, is one hell of a girl to have fun with. Her numerous ephemeral flips range from Veejays to Lab attendants - all with equal fervour. She loves jogging early in the morning (in her dreams, of course!) and spends the day desperately trying to be serious and sensible. 9 December 1 1 93B2PS820 Dipali Bhattacharya C/O KK Bhattacharya, 93/E, Vidya Vihar, Pilani - 333031 (Raj) A sincere and hardworking girl, her simplicity is the most attractive thing about her, besides her uncanny ability to socialize and make a lot of friends. One of the `true socializers', she manages to adjust almost effortlessly to any sort of company and environment. She's an extremely well-balanced and mature girl. A tryst with an MBA and a prospective career in Management is what she's looking forward to right now. 22 December 0 1 93B2PS822 Dinesh Sharma Museum Qtrs (No 1), Birla Museum, Pilani - 333031 A clever, cunning, good-humoured boy,Dinesh is also a man of principles. A very helpful person by nature he is always ready to lend a helping hand to anybody who cares to ask for it. Though shy and reserved when it come to girls, Fatta is nevertheless one of his greatest assets. Dinesh wants to bag a great job and rake in the moolah while climbing the corporate ladder. 21 January 0 1 93B3A1509 Banerjee Samonnoi Sajani 160/11 Sindhi Society Chembur Bombay - 400071 Mr Editor, President, Super dog, Morrison freak, Shommonoy or simply Sam never took long (Linal was enough) to realize that he was born to be a writer rather than an engineer. Three years of dedication to Economics and seven A's in Eco CDC's were all overruled by one day of wing cricket during which he realized that advertising/marketing rather than being a bureacratic Economist is his cup of tea. After two years of tasting bachelor BITSian life, nectar flowed in his life and softened the Mach 17 October 1 1 93B3A1536 Shishir Kapoor C/O Lt Col S K Kapoor Military Hospital Dehradun - 248001 (Up) Attention! Colonel Kapoor up for inspection. No one realized that the guy was only 5ft few inches tall. His heart, mouth and style overshadowed all bigger specimens of his species. With a heart as big as claimed above, he was quite busy donating it in MB. Result - `Ghorpad the Great'. Sec EDC/ Theatre Coord, he was definitely the best actor in his batch. His brillance showed off-stage in his acads (he studied only when he scratched), his G.K and his command over literature. His entreprenurial 24 May 1 1 93B3A1648 Srinivasa Raju Jampana S/O JV Subbaraju, Lecturers' Street, House No 25-2-33, Bhimavaram, Dt West Godavari, - 534202 (AP) A reasonable ghotu by BITSian standards, Raju managed to tickle our palates when he was NV-SEC in RPA. A god fearing person, Raju can get sentimental at times. This friendly guy wants to settle down with a good job after completing his BITSian studies. 10 June 1 1 93B3A1663 S Manikandan 3, Murthy Street, West Mambalam, Madras - 600033 A great cricket captain, he took a personal interest in demolishing teams (sometimes his own). Well known for the greatest no of run-outs, his on-the-pitch advice was invaluable to himself. Religous by nature, he believed in prayer and two Aartis everyday. An immensely hardworking person, he claims to be very sacked and ends up psyching himself and others days before the test. A self-styled common room buff, Captian Nixs has the credit of cooking up all pet names for wingies. He's equally inte 7 October 1 1 93B3A1673 Anuraag Agarwal 29 Ballygunj Park 8B Navin Appartments Calcutta - 700019 The dude could often be found all alone reclining on a chair, hair pulled back, dorned in kurta-payjamas, admiring the sexy moon. He was reputed to vapourise 16 hours before a test and usually returned to solid state 1 hour before it with blood shot eyes. Mr Jekyll to all ladies and Hyde to the other sex, this guy could raise even the mundane of occurings to levels of exstasy unexprienced by anyone (except for himself). Recipient of the-most grub-parcels-from-home award his larder was a source 5 June 1 1 93B3A2529 Raghunadha Reddy Vaka S/O Vaka Satyanarayana Reddy, Dno 41-12-6 GK Street, Krishna Lanka, Vijayawada - 520013 Vaka was worried only about one thing in BITS - his bed and pillow. Always one for late nights, Vaka spent a major portion of his BITSian life in high spirits. A politician in his own right Vaka's sure that the academic record of a BITSian is inversely proportional to his success in life. And he's going to prove it by becoming a very successful enterprenuer. Wish him all the Best. 30 March 1 1 93B3A2543 Wamburkar Amit Prakash Prakash Balwantrao Wamburkar Arun Niwas Near Adv Mukharjis Bunglow Rautwadi Akola - 444005 (Ms) Though Wambu began his BITSian life by running back home there's been no looking back for him. CAD god and a self styled software buff (wambu you always loved scl) this guy had good contis in the R&C Division. Wambu's extra-curricular activities included some accurate bowling in the QT and indulgence in hindi poetry. Though weighing approximately 5kg himself, he's looking forward to a heavyweight career in the software industry. 26 May 1 1 93B3A2545 Kasmani Imran Mohamed C/O Z B Sheikh Crescent Computers Opp Bhatia Boot House Mohd Ali Road Akola - 444001 (Mah) The guy's done it all. And whatever he hasn't, he makes up with his claims. Don Kasmani's reputation travelled far and wide - all drama clubs came to him for knives and knuckle dusters, only to be disappointed. Kasmani has postponed elections, broken bricks (with a swollen foot at the end) and enjoyed his pangas (even you would have if the locals were on your side). Though Imran spent his first three years `making-up', the fourth year saw dedication in his acads becoming a priority. Mia Imran 13 August 0 1 93B3A2643 V Hema 92, Nethaji Road, Manjakuppam, Cuddalore - 607001 (TN) 27 June 1 1 93B3A2649 Davuluri Sirish House No 1-8-700/30 Nallakunta Hyderabad - 500044 (Ap) This tall handsome lad enjoyed his wine not just because he had a lot of grape plantations back home. It was just his love for the better things in life. However, his being Security Coord compounded the problem. Fiercely loyal at heart but very calm in his mind, Sirish showed enthusiasm only for being the mess-topper. Politics came naturally to him but not at the expense of friends. He cleared his Eco courses quite civilly and he was economical in his Civil grades. When last heard, Sirish was 19 September0 1 93B3A2656 Sangekar Bharat Prakash Behind Sonarawada Budhwara Amravati - 444601 (Ms) The Prince of Amravati. The man who gave his hair the same priority as studies. With a deep interest in geography ranging from Kashmir to Rajasthan to Maharshtra, he was also a bath-room singer of repute known to have `indianised' careless whispers many a times. Pimple face was an aspiring politican and finally made it big as cul-sec in his fourth year. A guy who could keep you in high spirits with his histrionic abilities, he touched many a heart with soulful renditions from his flute on a si 5 March 1 1 93B3A3482 Shankara Narayanan N 21-C, Evelyn Gardens, Madurai-Melakkal Road, Madurai - 625016 Here comes our very own kutti konar- the most prolific office holder of our batch. No matter how important or not - PTM Excomm, Veg-Sec RBM, NSS volunteer, PAP, ARC the list is endless. The hotspot of BITSian realpolitik, he knew every deal being cut long after those deals were over. It's a different thing konar has been on the losing side of each and every election he's been associated with. Sec Eco-Assoc (he did all the work for 5 years) Konar has managed to postpone 5 eco d-course tests tha 15 May 1 1 93B3A3542 Verma Anuja Harbanslal 5-D, Kamet, Anushaktinagar, Bombay - 400094 (Ms) 10 April 1 1 93B3A3544 Kataria Akhilesh Sushilkumar Dr S K Kataria 8-B Dhawalgiri Anushaktinagar Bombay - 400094 Though his father is a scientist, Axe shows all the tadi with his opinionated knowledge. Blessed with a good brain, less hair and Sanjay Kapoor looks (Axe always keep a moustache, please!), his determination saw him end his BITSian life with a high CGPA despite his wing. The Robotics stud who left it for Eco, who left it for EEE, who left it for the vices, Axe always had the constant companion in his guitar. Cut through the tadi, and you would find a guy who is quite principled, willing to hel 1 November 0 1 93B3A3646 P Suman 201, Vijaykiran Apts, Subhash Nagar, PO Srinagar Colony, Hyderabad - 500873 (AP) This soft spoken guy is qutie serious about marriage as a career plan. And a good catch he would be too. A fundoo guy he gave the other EEEites a run for their money. He was always unruffled by any tension - tests or otherwise. Suman tackled tests and his hairstyle with equal style and plans to transfer the same to a career and/or marriage. There is further studies somewhere in the middle too. So girls catch him while you can. 16 May 1 1 93B3A3650 R Ravishankar 3-29-39/D, III Line, Krishna Nagar, Guntur - 522006 (A)P Kora would give anything to be the Marlboro-Man of BITS. Instead he satified himself by watching westerns and wearing jeans in this desert. This quiet worker with the innocent placid looks is a comps man. His unassuming character hides his software talents which he intends to exploit in a career oriented towards software development. 12 March 1 1 93B3A4335 Mitra Deepanjan Ranjit 2-D Everest Anushaktinagar Bombay - 400094 If anything can stop Dabbs from farting (from both ends), its Mechanical Engineering. A die-hard Mech enthusiast, he rapidly plunged into the joys of Thermodynamics after doing farewell Economics (and not welfare Economics). A `Robotics' stud in his initial years, he diverted towards goal keeping for the BITS footer team and being the Sounds Coord for Apogee.

Determined to keep up the dying Hippy tradition he took to wearing long hair and a goatee (or what passed of as one). His ambition in life is to grow a beard and to play the guitar (not the base one) and they both seem as far as Nirvana. But the best part about Nangus-Pangus is his heart and the sincerity with which he believes in what he does - love blossoming from the bud, music from his fake S 1 July 1 1 93B3A4484 Umathay Ashwin Ramesh 86 Ravindra Nagar Nagpur - 440022 The guy was a true blue Indian, complete with airy pajamas, Govinda worshipping and Hindi songs coming out from a transistor cum radio. One of the earliest to hit the course before a test Ashwin's dedication showed in his ability to attend the most boring classes in the middle of hot afternoons. But all the effort reflected in his exemplary performance during his Mech D-courses. Very graceful and timid in nature the occasional screaching scrape on the wall aroused his wilder instincts. Giggly 24 May 1 1 93B3A4532 A V Kishore Kumar C/O AV Venkatesan, 96/19, Mullai Colony, Mogappair, Madras - 600050 (TN) Kais has a clear understanding of his capabilities (mainly in acads) and pursues the relevant goal with a relentless determination to succeed. Playing truth or dare is Kais's favourite hobby when he's high. His interests range from Rubiks cubes to crosswords to just spending time with his friends. This dandyman wants to pick up some work experience for a year or two and then polish it off with an MBA. 13 August 1 1 93B3A4560 Ashish S Mehta 35 Dr Muniappa Road Kilpauk Madras - 600010 (Tn) The guy with the golden voice - that is until he began singing. His talents were especially in vogue at 8 in the morning much to his wingies' discomfort. He was a guy who could make a litle go a long way expecially with grub. He made a 99 percentile in the Economics A GRE and chucked it because it no longer excited him. The man's love took him to soaring heights via the gliding club or to the gypsy existence in the wilds of Pilani. Apart from having a good GK due to his varied reading interest 1 August 0 0 93B3A4573 Karthik Sundaram No 15, Flat No 2, I Road, Indiranagar, Madras - 600020 Definitely the handsome boy of the Eco batch. No one has ever seen even a frown spoil his school boy looks. Hardly a wonder that he had a lady electrified with his charms on a certain train journey. An avid quizzer and a brilliant QT cricketer he is also inclined towards books. Also he is probably the only guy to copy a problem wrong in an open book test. Though capable of running through an entire batting line-up in QT cricket, there is never a harsh word from him of the field. Maybe just an 12 April 1 1 93B3A4670 S Balamurali C/O V Srinivasan, 4/1,Plot No 13, Karumari Street, Devinagar, Madras - 600109 Balakanna's favourite alphabet is V. It's a different thing he settled for nothing less than an A in his D courses. Hardworking and systematic his helpful nature saw him play teacher to the wing. Thorgh Balz and Ayn Rand went together the same thing couldn't be said about Balz and bathing. On the grand day that he took a bath he insisted that his wingies take one too. The relieved wingies were more than eager to comply. Balz wants to do his MBA from IIM Ahmedabad ; the lack of water in Gujarat 16 March 0 1 93B3A6524 T Meenakshi Meenakshi Nilayam, Meenakshi Mills Compound, TPK Road, Madurai - 625003 The silent worker that she is, Minky toils till she finishes what she takes up. Equiposed and practical, her enthusiasm for Economics was reflected in the efforts she put as Jt Coord for `Laissez Faire'. Loyalty to friends and the strength to face any situation without flinching are other aspects of her determined character. Harvard Business School, Chicago, Wharton watch out for her when she comes. 20 January 1 1 93B3A6537 Gopal R A-2, `Kamalalaya', Chheda Nagar, Chembur, Mumbai - 400089. This calm, cool guy from Erode possesses natural heat during winter. Very systematic and determined when he wants to be, Gopal performed a volte-face in his academic life and ended up on top. With career interests in Management and advertising, this guy with a flair for organising things is looking forward to a rewarding career. They say `When the going gets tough, Gopal gets going'. 26 November 1 1 93B3A7666 R Ashok 77, TSV Koil Street, Mylapore, Madras - 600004 (TN). Ashok, also called Shogun or more lovingly mami, has those calm serene looks, and funny shorts which beguile any batsman into swinging off his deadly bowling. Even off the though Mami scored; as mess-rep RPA when he annouced on Saturday that Sunday morning's dosas will be served on Sunday night also. Extremely religious in nature its not uncommon to see him being drawn into passionate arguments. Equally passionate about claiming to be thin, his numerous strippings have proved him wrong. Mr R 20 May 1 1 93B3A7672 Satyadeep S. Musuvathy A 5/3 Anna Salai K K Nagar Madurai - 625020 (Tn) A guy with a laid-back approach, who believes that acads is only two years in Pilani and also started doing things from third year onwards, which are anything but academic. A permanent post holder of the CRC, who has never been challenged by anyone on campus, probably because he is a Karateka. He also had his brief stint at the EPC. Having got over all the preliminaries, if one scrutinizes his daily schedule, his affinity to the opposite sex is blatantly revealed. 26 April 1 1 93B3A8497 Chandrasekhar Jakkampudi S/O Mr J Madhusudan Rao, Pasumavru, (PO) Chilakalumpet, Guntur (Dt.) (AP). A source of envy for all Ghotus, JC baffled them with his laidback attitude and good results (when he wanted them). With interests as varied as reading, playing chess, sleeping & arguing (??) funtush JC managed to keep busy in BITS. A Gre aspirant JC wants to do his MS in the USA and ultimately start his own business. 22 September1 1 93B3A8668 S Chandrasekar #98, North Mada St, Padi, Madras - 600050 ITC (Instru Topper Chandy) was often left as the lone supporter of the SriLankan tean; so much so that to keep up with their fast pace Chandi ended up buying a racer bike. Once suspected to be the cause of homosexual tendencies in his wing, Chandi dispelled all such notions by establishing his numerous contis with girls. A gym freak chandi supplmented his vigorous excercises by his serious concentrated eating. Always happy and charming in his ways he wants to further his career prospects with 25 June 1 1 93B3PS816 Tarun Dara C/O Lt Col B M Dara (Retd) H No 360 Street No 4 Kaulagarh Road Rajinder Nagar Dehradun - 248001 The darling off his wing, a brilliant masseur and serious financial and cricket analyst. These words aptly describe Beta Tarun, who usually had the wing in splits by volunteering to be the butt of numerous jokes. Always wanting that elusive mark/grade, he had a simple if moody nature and a lovely paunch (I m still convinced he's pregnant) to match. He has his mind set on a fi-nan-cial career. Fi-nan-ce, paranthas and Marruti in Dehra-doon. Could life get better? 16 January 1 0 93B3PS823 Itilasha Gupta smt Gayatri Devi Gupta Near Water Works Loharu Road Pilani - 333031 (Raj) 4 August 0 0 93B3PS927 Sowmya V d/o C Venkataraman 250-J/17, III cross, I Additional phase, Girinagar, Bangalore - 560085 Captain of the Girls Baski team and Games Sec MB, `Choms' was otherwise a totally a closed book. Her spirit and dedication is obvious from the justice she does to any task she undertakes. Very unassuming and down to earth, Choms is really soft at heart. A colossal ego sacrificed only at the altar of love! Her interests after graduation include an MBA (or should that read NBA!). 29 October 1 1 93B4A1322 Sangeetha V S Plot 17, R K Shanmugam Salai, K K Nagar, Madras - 600078 (TN). She's as freaky as she tries to act sober. That's VSS, the soft-natured and sensitive `kid'. For close friends, she's the freakiest around for miles; time absolutely flies when you spend it with this totally lovable nut. Though she tends to be slightly reserved with people she doesn't know well, it didn't stop her from having a whale of a time in BITS. She has ideas of branching into advertising after BITS. 3 January 1 1 93B4A1395 J Raghavan 58/2 Swami Bakthan Street Ramalinagapurah Madras - 600012 (Tn) 22 January 0 0 93B4A1439 Arvind Narsimhan 53/6 Soundarya Colony Annanagar Western Extension Madras - 600101 (Tn) 10 May 0 0 93B4A2373 M V S Kumar A-9, Anurag, Apurupa Estates, Jeedimether, Hyderabad - 500855 (AP).

If you dont know who this guy is, you ain't been in BITS at all. He's always smiling and his high cheekbones only help accentuate those creases. That's probably why he's always the first to laugh at his own jokes. An exponent of the Martial Arts, with rippling muscles all over, its safer not to fool around with him. He hopes to specialize in Environmental studies and go over the top. 26 Janyary 1 1 93B4A3305 N Abdul K S Hamid D/2, MIG Flats, Turnbulls Road, Nandanam, Madras - 600035 (TN). "Built like an ox" takes on a new meaning when applied to Abdul. Hard in body, hard at work and hard in music, and yet, big at heart and soft on girls. Dul believed in hitting the ball out of sight while playing cricket or football, the runs and the goals never mattered. Famed for his super-argumentative theories, among which the oft quoted ones are Dulean Algebra (the 2000 solution) and the 4- times-movie-man-fund. He plans to do further research in Digital Illogic... 15 December 1 1 93B4A3332 Harish Shivaram K 1199 28Th Main 35Th Cross Jayanagar Iv T Block Bangalore - 560041 18 October 0 0 93B4A3374 Srinivas Dangeti Dangeti Tatarao, Chittumerchant, Nandirai Streetm, Gollaprolu - 533445 (W G Dt), Andhra Pradesh. If there's one thing DS hasn't got a shortage of, it's smiles. And their infectious nature didn't spare lady luck either. His interests range from music to reading short stories and programming. However, at present, he hasn't compiled any plans for life. 29 May 1 1 93B4A3400 Abirami S P.box No:50640, Dubai, UAE This is one girl whose enthu for life knows no bounds. She's always filled with infectious laughter and a tendency to experiment with anything and everything. A true example of the proverbial `friend in need', Dubai's also got a wacky sense of humour. She's got her future career all planned out - she intends to branch out into telecommunications: take the GRE, work for two years, `app' and then take the rest as it comes! 7 April 1 1 93B4A3463 Hanumolu V Pavan Kumar s/o H Ramesh Babu 6/18, Brodiepet, Guntur - 522002 (AP). A very friendly guy who tries never to contradict another's views. Very fundoo and helpful (especially at acads - his strong point), he always maintains his cool. He has no plans for the future, except probably to stop studying. 20 August 1 1 93B4A3500 D L N Krishna s/O Anjaneya Murty D P V 23-85 Ashoknagar, R C Puram, Bhel, Hyderabad - 500032 (AP). Kriss, a good friend to friends and a cool guy under tension, is a major cricket lover. He is also known for his unpredictable googlies.

A whiz at the synthesizer, Pantu is always there when you need him (or more specifically, his bicycle). He has no specific plans for the future, but that is understandable, because `future' for him is still far far away. 20 September1 1 93B4A4368 Mahajan Charudatta Avinash c/o A D Mahajan Opposite Himayat Garden, Ekta Colony, Plot No 5-B, Jalgaon Rd, Aurangabad - 431001 Halkya, the prolific H-Rep of Budh, has to his credit the ability to move easily with just about anybody and a brutal frankness that endears him to all. Known for the miniature shorts he used to wear, Halkya changed a lot over the five years of his BITSian life, from the small town schoolboy to a prospective Corporate kingpin. He doesn't need luck in life, he's already earmarked for success. 1 1 93B4A4375 C V S Madan Gopal s/O C Narsingh Rao 2/3 - Kheali, Riversmeet, Sonari, Jamshedpur - 831011 (Bihar) Madan is a sweet chap who gets along with practically anybody.

He has no specific plans for the future, but hopes to just take whatever good comes his way. 3 January 1 1 93B4A4387 Ramji K 44, Third Street, Abhiramapuram, Madras - 600018 Friends suspect that he was christened Ram"JI" probably because his parents knew that's the only way he's ever going to command respect. Ramji is credited among other things with the revival of Bridge and love for hard rock. He was the swimming and waterpolo captain in his third and fourth year respectively and sports club Jt Sec in his fifth. Also a BITS `B' team tennis player, he hopes to do `further research in automotive vehicles'. Probably that's why he dropped "Auto" thrice. 22 August 1 1 93B4A4407 M Sreenivasa Reddy 7-1-277-251-1, Sanjeeva Reddy Nagar, Besides 335-C, Hyderabad - 500038 (AP).

He prefers being equated to a Govt toddy shop. A very easy-going person who takes life as it comes, Prasad gets hectic only when its time for politics. Prasad's only plan for the future at present is to sleep, sleep, sleep.... 26 May 1 1 93B4A6409 Suresh Babu Pujala S/O Sitharamaiah P, 3/7, Brodiepet, Janata Bazar, Guntur Dt - 522002 (AP) Suresh Babu is a permanent fixture in the common room, so much so that he might be mistaken for a chair or a bench. Offical TV channel operator for three years in succession, Suresh Babu is also an excellent dancer and could give Prabhudeva a run for his money. But these are only a few of the abilities of this very talented person, whose chequered BITSian life could fill a book. His future plans include directing a film and winning an Oscar for it. Incidentally, he saw `Maine Pyar Kiya' 67 tim 20 May 0 1 93B4A6483 M Viswadharini 276, III Street, Babanagar, Villivakkam, Madras - 600049 This data base of students in BITS is more efficient than SWD. She converses fluently with anybody and can blabber with ease all day. She preens herself to look elderly, but can never mask her childish appearance even behind that long tilakam. She watches all kinds of movies on TV for hours but has never seen a single RAF movie as a matter of principle! Don't be flattered if she compliments you with "you're so cute" - she says that to everyone. 9 June 1 1 93B4A6493 Sowmya S 3, First Street, Ragava Reddy Colony, Madras - 600083 Sosa was one of the few unabashed admirers of the predominant species of BITSian men. An enthued girl, she could light up a room; music was one of her loves (she having been a very active member and performer for Ragamalika). The girl who (eventually) wants to be famous, plans to get an MS in Computer sciecne from the land of Liberty. 23 May 1 1 93B4A6621 Nivedhitha G c/O A Gopal 53 4Th Main Road Raja Annamalai Puram Madras - 600028 Nivedhitha is a bombastic speaker whose BITSian life pivoted around acads. Not a very outgoing person, she constrained her movements to her own specific group. She lived up to the proverb `A friend in need is a friend indeed'. 19 June 0 1 93B4A7240 P V Laxman Rao H No 1-2-412/3, I Floor, Gagan Mahal Colony, Domalguda, Hyderabad - 500029 CT, who got his odd nickname after maxing a Linal test in the first year, counts whistling as one of his serious hobbies. Whistling at who? CT was an Ex Com and the treasurer of Maths Assoc. He hopes to go abroad, but if that doesn't materialize, he is ready to take up a job. 22 July 1 1 93B4A7338 V Venkatesh S/O P Varadan, Type 3, 9/1 HVF Estate, Avadi, Madras - 600054 GL is a very lovable person, except when he cracks one of his stupid jokes that tease your patience and integrity more than your brains. Very bright and hardworking (in other words, he ghotes, ghotes, and ghotes), should have had sincerity as his middle name and punctuality as his first. He hopes to take up a job after BITS. 12 February 1 1 93B4A7435 Vijay Sampath E-16, Bapudham Compex, San Martin Marg, New Delhi - 110021 CyberKing, a serious rival to Bill Gates, versatile cho chweet sugarplum, BITS `B' team tennis player, bridge and crosswords guru, Visa's accolades go on and on. He usually writes make-ups but in a bad mood may even write a regular test. The cute kitten and hero of many an MBites' fantasy, he'll join the rest of his family in the States afer BITS. Bill Gates, Paul Allen et al, watch out! 24 May 1 1 93B4A7461 Shaikh Aman Mohammedqamar II Floor, Sahkar Flats, Kashmira Society, Narayan Nagar Road, Paldi, Ahmedabad - 380007 Gentle Aman is more of a legend than a person. A small unassuming guy with a quirky walk, Aman has gray matter that overshadows all rest. Apart from his staggering double-digit CGPA, Aman also has some lesser publicised qualities up his sleeve, like he is a very good bathroom singer and a passable tennis player (left hand serve and volley). Aman hopes to go abroad and earn a Masters in Computer Science. 5 October 1 1 93B4A7906 Ramu K Baji's House, Baji St, Rajahmundry - 533105 (AP) If asked for the usage of the word `Daad', one would say `Ramu is a daad'. Neural networks, Applied Mathematics and even Biology are part of his domain. An early bird, he rarely ever misses a class at the Insti, and hopes to take the first job that comes his way. Or maybe, he'll just stay back in BITS for the heck of it and keep cracking! 4 September 1 1 93B4A8487 Salunke Vijaya Kalyanrao 'Mauli', Engineers Colony, Dattanagar, South Latur, Dt Latur - 413531 (Ms) This petite Ghati girl from Latur was the baker of the wing, churning out the goodies faithfully. Frequently seen on stage in the dances for Chigoor, she was also a member of Art n dee. A charming smile and a naughty prankster, she was equally at ease with Instru circuits. Searching for a prospective job and a prospective hubby will keep her busy in the near future. 13 April 1 1 93B4A8498 Kodem Sudheer Kumar k A Rama Krishna Rao Dr No 8-6-80 Gorlavari Street Chowk Bazaar Srikakulam - 532001 (Ap) 11 June 1 0 93B4A8505 Pushya Jambunathan 26, Kallukaran Street, Mylapore, Madras - 600004 (TN) She is a gold medalist in pillow fighting and manages to excell in giving Kabaali to others. Her studies gain tempo with the air filled with "villu pattu" (folk song from TN). Its simple to be happy but difficult to be simple. Pushya is easily very simple. 20 December 1 1 93B4PS444 Lakshmi G C/O Butchi Naidu Gorantla, 6-3-661/402, Rekha Delux Apts, Sangeeth Nagar Colony, Hyderabad Carefree, playful, gay, lazy and one of the `Take-it-easy' policy crowd, she'll probably go down as the most vela girl in the '93 batch! A television freak, her knowledge of ATN is impeccable. Her BITSian life was a big, extended party punctuated by make-ups and RAF movies. This girl who is an amazing cook is going to make some lucky guy's gastronomic dreams come true! 8 November 1 1 93B4PS817 Chaitanya Kumar Sharma S/O Shri Kailash Chandra Sharma Shri Muhakkam Ramji Sharmas Well Ward No 9 Pilani - 333031 (Raj) 12 September0 0 93B4PS818 Nitin Kumar Chaturvedi shri V K Chaturvedi Q No D-205 Vidya Vihar Campus Pilani - 330031 (Raj) Chats spent time chatting about politics,being LOLA and marooing fattas about his marks and CGPA. Attached to the Hindi press he's worked on the organising committee of professional nights. Nitin wants to become a manager in some firm but only after doing a MBA. 10 December 1 1 93B5A1344 E S Madhavan house No 3-456 Station Road Betamcherla Po Kurnool Dt - 518599 (Ap) The true epitome of the word 'sack'. When sleep has not struck Maddy, he's always at the Raidi. A guy who's learnt a lot in BITs (other than ghotting!), he is of an extremely helpful nature with a special affinity for typing in reports for others. 5 November 1 1 93B5A1356 A Kiran Babu C/O Dr A Seshagiri Rao, Laxmi Narsimha Sadan, Near Divya Amrita Apts, Bhavanipuram, Vijaywada, (AP) AKB loves bowling leg spinners, wearing striking yellow track suits, auditioning for dance-workshop (8 times!!) and dancing (finally!). A person with subtle feelings, a fragile heart and highly emotional attitude, he has the reputation of being frank and principled. 23 August 1 1 93B5A1432 Naveen Jesudas 170/8, 4th Avenue, Annanagar, Madras - 600040 (TN) A quiet, soft-spoken chap, he can be highly impulsive at times... Naveen's a nocturnal creature - usually takes bath at 12 in the night; sweeps his room a bit later and exercises before crashing at 4am. His later years in BITS saw him turn into a lover of hard rock and progressive metal. He's also known for his excellent command over Spoken Tamil. On loose translation, his description of being hit by a scooter comes out to being 'gored' by a scooter. Not too excited about Physics and Chemical, 12 November 0 1 93B5A2419 Potdar Sachin Vijaykumar Pushpanjali, Kalikaadevi Marg, Ausa Road, Latur - 413531 (Ms) Sachin is the Latur boy who wanted to be Buddha (no one less than the enlightened one), then the collector of his district and finally settled for further studies abroad. Sachin is amazingly quiet, patient and can listen to anyone (from his Physics instructors to the Rediwalla) with the same patient smile. A happy boy who will always remain so considering he is what he really wants to become - not Buddha, not a collector but proficient in what he does. 21 January 1 1 93B5A3270 Subramanian S 47, Erikarai Rd, East Tambaram, Madras - 600059 Jester at first sight? Probably not; though his wacky sense of humour, exaggerated reactions and gestures would suggest so. Kosu has been serious about most things in life, primarily his acads and future career, philosophy, psychology, electronics,jetlee - any knowledge interests him. Kosu has learnt a lot from his BITSian experiences though he's still not sure about the words of Hotel California (inspite of listening to it throughout his BITSian life). 22 June 1 1 93B5A3364 Archana K R 2/7 Bajanai Koil Street Pallipattu Madras - 600113 (Tn) Never be sure that you know her enough, for behind that infections laugh and seemingly capricious nature lies a deep person. She has a congenital problem that her wingies find quite intolerable - diplomacy! Her compulsion to study hard gave her the BITSian record of having spent the most time in sky (studying?? of course!) 15 October 1 1 93B5A3390 V Subramanian 5-14B, Crystal Flats, Lazarous Church Road, Mandavelli, Madras - 600028 VSu works hard at most things: be it his body or ghotting or bird watching or even talking to them (the birds I mean!). Even his sick jokes evoke laughter because of the effort behind them. VSu loves girls, night-outs and cricket in that order. VSu's BITSian life is dedicated to enjoying because according to him "Youth occupies a small part of your life Macchan". 17 July 1 1 93B5A3392 R Suresh Kumar No 10, I Street, Kumaran Colony, Vadapalani, Madras - 600026 Suku is a very determined man. He never wants to lose, be it cricket or studies, though with respect to girls his attitude wasn't quite exactly the same. Determination paid dividends in the end. A Physics stud and astroenthusiast, Suku was also a major comedian who left you satisfied with even one joke (after that people never wanted more). 15 August 1 1 93B5A3397 Gurdarshan Singh Kalra F-163, Vikas Puri, New Delhi - 110018 GD is so determined and hard working that he has made a success of everything he has touched. Be it Cosmos'96 as a Coordinator or RAF movies as a student member (that his Chom nature insisted on screening English Block busters dubbed in Hindi is another story). A true go-getter, GD has focussed his sight on the IIM's; God help anyone who comes in his way. 24 January 1 1 93B5A3399 Chandrasekaran K 18, Veeraeswaram Approach Road, Srirangam, Tiruchirapalli - 620006 (TN) KCS/Andaa has many claims to fame. Be it his being a terror to birthday boys, his occasional philosophical binges or even his love affair with BITSian elections, Andaa made his presence heard if not felt. However, one thing his friends will remember him for is his indulgence in the art of letching. Andaa is one robust guy who will always prove to be a great friend in times of need (i.e. unless he sees a girl around the corner). 25 September1 1 93B5A3403 Rishikesh N Athira, Chekkalamukku, Sreekariyam PO, Trivandrum - 695017 (Kerla) Rishi is the typical `good boy'. Simple, unassuming, principled and dedicated, this devout Mallu would do any Momma proud. His favourtie pastime is day-dreaming followed by sleeping (mental preparation as he puts it). All in all a great friend to have. 12 July 1 1 93B5A3414 P Gosagan 21, Vasantha Nagar East Gate, Srirangam, Dt Tiruchirapalli - 620006 (TN) The letter `G' is characteristic of him. Gosa, Gundu, Ghottu are some of his characteristics. A hard working guy who once possessed with doing something will see it through till the very end, and this applies to his crushes over first yearite beauties too. Once he gets a crush on one, he sees it till the end in time to get another one. Gosa also intends to pursue more serious matters which include higher studies with a `techi' job following it. All in all, a `G'reat `G'uy. 19 June 1 1 93B5A3434 Suresh Seshadri C/O Dr K V Seshadri, 15 - Trustpakkam South, Mandavalli, Madras - 600028 Sushe is a gentleman. A confirmist who goes by the ideals and principles. He has the capability of cracking Physics CDCs and lofty sixes with equal skill and delight. Though cute in his simple ways, Sushe was devastating at TT. Sushe's career plans are to start an industry or firm of his own and some social service. He's sure to do it without batting an eyelid. 7 December 0 1 93B5A3436 R Venkatesan C/O G Selvaraj, E 121, VII St, II Cross, Kamaraj Nagar, Kumbakonam (TN) Venky thinks so much that he takes 30 mins just to get out of bed after waking up. A cracko at acads, this mind-reader is smiling and soft-spoken. Currently preparing for CAT and GRE, his hardworking nature will probably see him through both! 31 May 1 1 93B5A3453 Vikram C R A-6, BBC Homes, 18, South Boag Rd, T.Nagar, Madras - 17 (TN) Gill is a person from whom you'd expect least resistance (ohm!). He can mix effortlessly with anyone because of his good understanding capabilities, steady pace of dealing with any matter and his impeccable smile. This excellent logician is the one to contact when in need of spiritual guidance. Gill is always good fun to be with - whether he's kissing the sky in a purple haze or cheering the Windies to yet another victory. 26 April 1 1 93B5A3467 G K Kaushik Vijay Mansion, Plot No C-35, Flat-4, 2nd Avenue, Annanagar West PO, Madras - 600040 Gosag loves Kishore Kumar, Amitabh, bird-watching, gardening horticulture and pig rearing. Blessed with a golden voice and a good bowling arm, Gosag also thinks he's good looking (he always thought no one knew!!). But behind these multiple facets is a frank and good-natured guy who just wants a job and to woo his childhood crush. 1 April 1 1 93B5A3471 Rajesh Thomas 114, Central Avenue, DAR Township, Kalpakkam - 603102 (TN) Rat is very close to the Mills & Boon hero - tall, dark and handsome (2 out of 3 is never bad!). Little wonder that this born casanova charms members of both sexes with his infectious grins and hearty laughs. An artist at heart, he also doubles as a baski player and has also been one of the most popular Costaans. This is one rat you'd want to be plagued by! 5 November 1 1 93B5A3476 Ranjith M A 10, Ganga Flats, 111, R H Road Luz, Madras - 600004 MAR has always been an enigma. Ardent quizzer, volleyball player, the ELAS Sec that never was, the three-fingered talent and only 16 hrs of sleep in his second year. Once an ardent hater of MBites, he experinced a radical change in his views after a certain incident and now gives AAA ratings to most of them. But a more dominant part of MAR's personality is the amazing entertainer that he is and his ability on the gat that makes Satriani's pieces sound like ad jingles. One of the most popular g 22 March 0 0 93B5A4315 Balagopalan Arvind B/7, Green Park Apts, Salisbury Park, Pune - 411037 (Ms) Bala is of a rare breed. Legend has it that when he's not blazing the ramp with his piercing eyes, he's playing the role of a `rock' either as a defender on the footer field or as chief election commissioner. But the truth is that most of the time he is doing nothing and enjoying himself thoroughly at that. He has few indulgences - crosswords, Kurra and soaps to name a few; but is very good with all them. Strong, calm and modest, Bala has proved to be a candidate for `The Complete Man'... with 10 August 1 1 93B5A4426 Kurra Goutham 14/A, Poosari, Chennimalai Road, Erode - 638009 (TN) Kurra G comes from an illustrous family - Shiva G, Kenny G, Parle G, to name some of them. Little wonder that he's developed into a multifaceted creative bundle that he is. Photographer, Robotics god, computer whiz kid, guitarist, painter, composer (?), singer (??) are some of his other identities. Kurra is highly creative and inventive with the uses of gadgets and bulbs (fundoo lighting!) and also Readers Digests (he found a use for every page). But Kurra's genius is paralled only by his fart 29 June 1 1 93B5A4430 B Manoj s/o B Purushothama Reddy, 6-3-126/12, Ramgloi, Nalgonda Dt, (AP) Manoj is known for his soft spoken and reserved nature. But behind the laid-back attitude lies a good sportsman who enjoys his work-outs. After the BITS experience, Manoj intends to do an MS and polish it off with a job. 5 June 1 1 93B5A4448 Naveen Kondapalli 13-6-439/A/7, Gudi Malkapur, Mehdipatnam, Hyderabad - 500028 (AP) Self-righteous, confident, determined and very, very hardworking are the words that would come to one's mind on remembering Naveen (also known as Konda). Little wonder that he thrived in the dept of Security. Naveen plans to secure his career prospects with an MBA (My Belief Alone). 1 March 1 1 93B5A4459 Parag Patwardhan Below Horticulture Office, Dhalpur, Kullu - 175101, (HP) You may call him Pattu or Fattu - but nothing can stop him when he's talking. And if there is anything that his speech lacks its volume control. But his company wouldn't be as much fun minus his stories of football sized apples growing in his backyard, his claims of being a bisexual... However if anything that he underplays is what lies deep down his boisterous nature - an affectionate, enthusiastic and a dependable friend who is a devout worshipper of Ram. 22 December 1 1 93B5A7343 Srikanth K 34, Police Station Rd, Behind Sub-Registrar Office, Sivakasi - 626123 (TN) Looks can be deceptive - and you better know it if you are arguing with Papa. This silent killer can whip the hell out of anyone in word battles. Papa normally doesn't like to meddle in others affairs (don't trouble trouble unless trouble troubles you) and lets actions speak for him. Papa's application in acads has encouraged him to do the unimaginable - be a Kottai forever. 29 November 1 1 93B5A7473 S Arvind Flat No-5, Srichakra Apartments, 205, Ramaswamy Road, K K Nagar, Madras - 600078 31 December 0 0 93B5A7607 G Sathish 2, South Saliya St, Kornad, Mayiladuthurai, Thanjavur Dt, Tamil Nadu - 609002 A genius by any standard, G Sat also has the maturity to appreciate all aspects of life. His amazing combination of ability to imagine the most abstract things and calm, soft-spoken nature has won him more and more admirers each day. His hobbies are slightly different - he likes delving into the intricacies of quantum mechanics, playing bridge or solving complex logic puzzles. G Sat firmly believes that every aspect can be perfected and that he has started to perfect himself knowing it's a lif 29 February 1 1 93B5A8279 S Aparna Plot No 6, Banjara Nagar, Trimulgherry, Secanderabad - 500015 Apart from a terrific taste in music and a wonderful sense of humour, this cute little `Editor' of Quanta'96 is also known for her creative abilities.

Very warm-hearted and considerate, Aparna never lets people down if thay approach her for a favour. She's planning to follow up on the likes of Bill Gates, Indian Chapter, and start her own software firm. 7 October 1 1 93B5A8281 Ch Srinivas s/o Dr Chandraganti Sudarshan Rao, Civil Surgeon Community Hospital, Kothapet, East Godavari Dt (AP) Psenti girls - none of them are Sai's cup of tea. A lovable character, Sai just wants to enjoy, trip and sack. But Sai believes he knows what he wants out of life and how to do it inspite of his freaky ways. What else could be better! 4 July 1 1 93B5A8300 Padma Priya K A-29, P Rajan Road, TVS Nagar, Madurai - 625003 (TN) A Carnatic Music enthusiast, Priya dubbed `DD6' affectionately (!) by her friends, loves singing, playing the sitar and veena and last but least simply listening to music. A veteran of the Music Club and Ragamalika, she would like to develop her proficiency in music in her spare moments sometime in the future. Priya believes in taking life as it comes and is also fond of putting in those extra few hours between the sheets. Her friends connect this last fancy to her hopes that someday a Prince 16 September1 1 93B5A8342 R Meena 18, Trust Square Street, Ramalingapuram, Madras - 600012 `Rum-Bunny' was Jt-Coord Cosmos'95 and a senior member of ECMC and MMC when on campus. Her varied interests include everything from fabric painting to playing the sitar, not to mention social welfare. She's obsessed with time and money, but not to fear, this cute and neat girl is also level-headed. Right now she's got her hopes set on an MBA from IIM(A) and a Management career. 24 October 1 1 93B5A8353 Aliveni Kumari B c/O Srinivasa Jwellery Mart Sharaff Bazar, Main Road, Guntur - 522003 A very feminine, `cute' lady, Veni's the sort of person you could talk to for hours on end and not even dream of getting bored. After starting her BITSian life with a reputation for being slow, she's now a self-employed debunker of the theory that `Haste makes waste' and likes doing things as fast as possible. A very helpful and soft-hearted person, Veni's deadly smile has an impeccable track record of catching everyone's attention at first go. She does not seem to have any specific plans in m 23 June 1 1 93B5C6814 Sanjay Mangla C/O Sh K M Mangla Birla Public School, Pilani - 333031 (Raj) 17 November 0 0 93B5PS420 Lalatendu Mishra c/O Prashant Kumar Mishra 846, P Bomikhal, Bhubaneswar - 751010 (Ori) A guy with real guts. And he believes in exercising them. Fights come easily to him and established him as nothing less than a 'DON'. One of the few hostelites who knew more 'lokis' than BITsians, he was characterised by his gutkha smiles. Lola is also a very good carrom player who enjoyed humming his share of Hindi songs. This true 'chom' intends joining his father's business. 25 November 0 1 93B5PS815 Ram Manohar Singh B P Singh 135, D Vidya Vihar, Pilani - 333031 (Raj) Commonly known as 'Ramaiya', he was often found on the football field or around the carrom board.A man of few words, he was choosy about his friends but thrived in their company.

Probably the highest number of nicknames, she's had them all from ATnT (Always Talking & Talking), NSTM (Non Stop Talking Machine), Ms Grundy and Cuckoo Rao. While she excelled at dramatics with the EDC (better off stage - I still feel), music was her forte. A passion for music and a voice to match saw her as the queen of all music nites and rock shows.

Whether it comes to watching alternative movies or simply doing something new for the heck of it, Prasad's determination and his conviction is most admirable. His sexy one liners brightened many a BITSians day - why, you can hardly even think of spending a boring minute with this top-notch entertainer! Prasad's going to join up the IFS before or after an MBA, e 27 June 1 1 93C2PS798 Srinivasa Rao Annam c/o A Srinivasa Rao, D.No 17-7-23, Manavari Street, Islampet, Tenali, Guntur Dt - 522201 (AP) Chichu, like most BITSians, enjoyed cricket - watching it, playing it and talking about it. A simple, cheerful person, his regret is that he did not have greater success with the ladies though (as he himself points out) it would make his wife very secure.

A bit of an enigma, short tempered and lazy, he was nevertheless a lovable person.

Though primarily a nocturnal creature, at least when he was in BITS, Shyam wasn't bothered too much by the `11 o'clock cut-off' during his nights on campus - always very shy with girls `though they simply adore him'.
