Our Convocation Videos

Salil Dave is a great person. He graduated with us in 1986, came to IIT campus for the convocation, but did not receive his degree on the stage. You may wonder why. It was because he decided that he will do a video recording of the entire convocation, and would keep these videos as secret, and release them just before our Silver Jubilee Reunion. Great foresight he had, and it indeed helped a lot in raising the tempo for the SJR.

Most of the remaining page is copied from what he posted on the batch mailing list on 8th October, 2010.

So, here are the 10 segments (on YouTube) of our convocation on May 23, 1986.
