Sunshine alumni body announces its office bearers at AGM

By Chandan Kumar

New Delhi: In a first, the alumni association of Sunshine Prep./High School, located in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, announced the name of its office bearers at the annual general meeting here on Sunday. 

Led by the Chairman Raja Pramanik, an alumnus currently​ working with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), the newly nominated office bearers for year 2017-2018 called for an increased engagement to mobilize alumni network and make it a rallying point for every pass out of the school.  The body will be co-chaired by Shivi Sudarshan, a Rajya Sabha TV employee, who left the school in 1997. 

Ashutosh Kumar, who has been very instrumental in reuniting the school's fresh alumni, was unequivocally elected as the General Secretary while Siddharth became the Treasurer.  

This year's AGM had many firsts. For instance, this was the first time that similar meetings were held in three cities at the same time.  

Muzaffarpur and Bengaluru were the other cities where the meetings were held. 

Sharing the minutes of the AGM, Amol Ratna, also an NIT alumnus and the newly elected President of the alumni body, said that the purpose of the meet was to finalize a framework of the alumni body which will ensure proper implementation of various programmes and fulfill the objectives laid down in the constitution of the body.

"To assist the past, present and future passouts of the school, we will raise funds through registration drives and help conduct talent search initiatives, award those with exemplary academic records and also organise sports, singing and arts competitions to ensure that the students don'tlag behind in extra-curricular activities," Ratna said.


As many as 10 executive members, the names of most of whom have been announced, will be working closely with four committee members. 

At least 50 alumni participated from three different cities in this year's AGM . 

During a marathon meeting that ran into hours, the alumni came out with several suggestions to provide a better roadmap to the body. 

"Only a get together for fun shouldn't be the purpose of this meet, indeed we should focus more on how we can work towards benefitting other alumni and the current students of the school," said Dr. Chaitanya Krishna. 

Krishna, who was unanimously declared as the co-chairman of the body, was also suggestive of renaming the alumni association as "Sunshine Parivar" as he made a fervent appeal to everyone to establish a connect with the members like that of a family. 

President Amol Ratna came out vociferously with a detailed report on how seriously the efforts had been made, barring a few areas, to fetch positive results and to leverage the potential of the "bright" Sunshine alumni.

Ankur Pratik, a Snapdeal employee and an executive member of the alumni body, raised some thought provoking questions as he asked about the benefits one may get after getting registered with the alumni network. 

The office bearers said that they aim to raise at least Rs 50, 000 within a month to get the initial plans executed for the association to be formalized as a Society. 

The alumni will have to get registered to avail the benefit of the association. There will be three types of memberships available -- lifetime ( for which one is expected to pay a minimum of Rs 5,000), Senior members (Rs 1,000 for a year) and Junior members (Rs 500 annually). 

The alumni also shared lighter moments as one of them enthralled them with his compositions. 

Highly spirited recent passed out students from Muzaffarpur took the AGM to an another level by the display of their youthfulness​ as they were seen dancing their heart out during video chats with their Delhi counterparts.

Bengaluru seemed to be the Royal Challengers in disguise as the alumni there challenged those in delhi in terms of excitement at the AGM. Seen giving their tastebuds a treat for most of the times, the alumni at the Bengaluru meet also came out with multiple suggestions.  

Bengaluru reunion was also a mix of very senior and very junior alumni with the likes of Jeny Mishra, a class X passout of the school from 2008 batch, and her junior by a year, Raghu Nandan Singh, catching the maximum eyeballs.
