IITAGH Celebrates Fall Picnic 2011

By Suraj Mhatre

SUGAR LAND: About 100 IIT Alumni and their families celebrated IITAGH’s annual fall picnic on October 22, a beautiful Saturday afternoon, at Lost Creek Park in Sugar Land.  It was a family affair that everyone, big and small, enjoyed immensely.

For cricket enthusiasts, Sundy Srinivasan made arrangements for a spirited game that was played with great vigor.  Men of all ages and skill levels participated and had a good time.  While diehard cricketers were showing their skills on the field, children took advantage of the well-equipped public playing area at the park.

Dhakshin restaurant set up a dosa-parlor, where fresh custom dosas and appetizers were served. Later, delicious Indian food and dessert were served. These too were enjoyed by everyone.

After lunch, the major attraction of the picnic was the Gana Pehchana program by Ram Seetaram.  Five teams competed for the top spot in a competition that required knowledge of Bollywood/Hindi film songs, both old and new.  Team ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ scored the highest points to win the completion.

After Gana Pehchana, all adults and children participated in an entertaining Bingo session, hosted humorously by Sundy Srinivasan and Hemant Jha.

In the breaks between activities, participants also volunteered and registered for the joint IITAGH-IACF tutoring Math and Science tutoring program for HISD students.

IITAGH thanks its trustees for their ongoing support, especially David Raj for his generous donation of the PA system and Sundy Srinivasan for hosting the cricket game and entertaining Bingo session.  IITAGH also thanks all members of its voluntary board and its trustees for their behind-the-scenes work in making this picnic a warm and memorable one.

IITAGH organizes events periodically in the Houston area to meet its overarching goals of promoting professional growth, giving back to the local community, and helping families create local social networks. Please visit www.iitagh.org for more information.
