Bada Khana (बड़ा खाना). First dinner and night stay at IIT Gandhinagar Palej Campus

2nd May 2015 registered as the day when IIT Gandhinagar Community finally witnessed the sacrifices of construction workers, contractors, agencies, architects among others. With more than 2500 heads, IIT Gn community witnessed the largest dinner ever which was named as ‘bada khana(बड़ा खाना)’.

‘Bada khana(बड़ा खाना)’,the idea was taken from Indian Army where in, aim was to include all those people who were the part of Palej campus making. It was unbelievable at the same time wonderful to have dinner with construction workers, contractors, staffs, engineers, faculty, students. All together at one place. Standing ovation to the people who successfully organized this memorable event and thank you for registering this day into the history of IIT Gandhinagar.

Such wonderful development would not have been possible without copious hard work of construction workers. Because of them only IIT Gandhinagar is now ready to shift the campus. Interesting fact is that it took less than 2.5 years to finish the construction of first phase of Palej Campus.

The student hostels are now ready to welcome all of us. (Pics below)

The 2nd May evening started with ‘Puja’, which we call as ‘गृह प्रवेश- Grih Pravesh ‘ and thereafter multiple exciting celebrations with such innovative dinner party.

The same day, IIT Gandhinagar registered one more history- ‘Welfare to Class of 2015’. This was splendid way to say thanks to ‘Class of 2015’. All thanks to Cultural Council, IIT Gandhinagar who worked all the day and night to accomplish such fantastic work in very short time. ‘Class of 2015’ stayed whole night with Director Sir, DoSA, Assoc DoSA and Assoc Dean of Campus Development.

First Surprise quiz– No, this time not taken by Prof but by students (class of 2015) to our Director sir, DoSA, Assoc DoSA and Associate Dean of Campus Development. According to examinee, questions asked were tough ;).

Below are few photos from this day (Thanks to IIT Gandhinagar Community for sharing these photos)
