GUWAHATI, April 22 - A reunion of the 1987-89 HS batch of Cotton College was held on Saturday.
The past students of the batch � numbering around 140 � assembled at Sudmersen Hall of Cotton University, which was followed by felicitation of two former principals, Dr KD Krori and Dr Anil Kumar Goswami.
Dr Krori recalled his days as the principal and also spoke about the pioneering initiative of Manik Chandra Baruah in setting up the historic college more than a century back, and how it changed the educational landscape of the State and the North East. Dr Goswami dwelt on the role played by the college in moulding the minds of thousands of students every year and how it came to attain iconic status as an institution of higher learning.
Earlier, the programme was inaugurated with a Jyoti Sangeet (Tore More Alokore Jatra) chorus. A plantation drive in the campus was another highlight of the event.
In the evening, the ex-students assembled at Hotel Gateway Grandeur for a cultural programme, which was also marked by a ramp walk by the ex-students. It was choreographed by choreographer Vikram Rai Medhi, also of the same batch.
