On 12th Jan 2008, we the old DEMETIANS of 5th Batch passed out in 1957, celebrated golden jubilee meet, codename GOLDMET 57, in the salubrious climate of Mysore. From a batch of 46, all of us septuagenarian, only fourteen could make it with spouses. One batch mate, from Bangalore (CJ Singh) could attend only part time and hence not in the photograph attached. The two days we spent was a blast and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the stay which was organized by KNS Rao, SR Parthasarthy and IH Rao. Many of you will be known to them from past.

The spouses accompanying us were really thrilled to see us dance, talk, pulling each others leg reminiscing old days, recounting tails and shedding 50 years from our age. Those were really notalagic moments, accompanied by sight seeing of the grand city together with finest of local cuisines in the best of hotels.

In the end it was well worth it and recharged our batteries. We also made a resolution that we will meet every two years to celebrate with spouses and try to reach those who could not be contacted until now.

To keep the stats correct hear are some figures:

  • Total batch strength 1957 : 46
  • No longer with us : 8
  • Where about not known : 14
  • Contacted and attended : 15
  • Could not join : 9
