IIT Alumni Association, Thailand (IIT AAT) plays important role in the MOU signing between IIT Madra Print E-mail

by Pramod M. Jain (President IITAAT)


Deans from IIT ChennaiA panel discussion consisting of 4 IIT AAT members as panellist was held on 1st April 2007 on the topic “Promoting cooperation in technical education between Thailand and India”. H. E. Miss Latha Reddy was the Guest of Honor and our guest speakers were Prof. Numyoot, and Prof. Dr. Chira.

Our Indian Ambassador to Thailand, H. E. Miss Latha Reddy has played key role since beginning in promoting technical cooperation between India and Thailand. She in fact took the initiative to form a steering committee consisting of 7 IIT AAT members and co-chaired by H. E. Miss Latha Reddy herself and Prof. Dr. Chira. The goal of this committee is to work towards promoting interaction between Thai and Indian technological institutes. The 1st meeting of this committee was held on 31st May 2007 and the fruits of everyone's concerted efforts are in front of all of us today.

IITAAT is proud to having played key role and to be part of this very important event of MOU signing between IIT Madras and Rajamagala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT) as well as RMUT Lanna and we hope to see many more MOUs signed up between other IITs and premium Thai Institutions in near future. IIT AAT would like to express our sincere thanks to one of our senior Alumni, Mr. Lalit Kumar, M. D. of Sunflag Co., for making this happen.

Another important activity of IIT AAT is to promote the ‘Lecture Series’ in Thailand by Indian Academics and Achievers in fields like IT, Science & Technologies in various faculties. 1st Inaugural lecture on the topic “Technology for Development” was held at RMUTT on 24th August 2007.

Members of IITAATIIT AAT has also provided the names of about 10-12 IITAAT Alumni to Prof. Numyoot and Prof. Dr. Chira. These IITAAT members have volunteered to give lectures at Institutes in various fields such as Textile and Chemical Engg., Rubber Technology, Chemistry and IT etc..

Some of IITAAT Alumni have expressed willingness to work with Prof. Numyoot and Prof. Chira to guide Thai students chosen for the student exchange program and prepare them beforehand to study along side Indian students and take them through a refresher English course if required so that they can better understand the Indian way of speech.

Lucky Spinning Co., Ltd. has already taken the important step in this direction. Company’s C.O.O. and Group President and our IITAAT Treasurer, Mr. D.Devadas,  organized a half day Business English program for RMUTT students under the able guidance of Dr. Paiboon from RMUTT. 1st such program took place few weeks ago at Lucky Spinning Co.’s office where 40 students got the first hand training from senior executives of the Group including COO himself.  The 2nd training program is planned to take place soon.

Another important project was started by IIT AAT in the month of June, 2007 by setting aside a monthly fund of THB 10,000. as an aid to improve the living conditions of children in the orphanage  Ban Kru Noi in Rajburana area. This project is taken up by our other active Alumni, Mr. Sethu. This commitment is initially for 2 years. Some of us visit Orphanage with family on a quarterly basis to hand over post dated cheques and spend some time with kids by distributing gifts and snacks. Two of our members have generously donated 2 computer sets and printer as well.

I spent 4-5 days before conference in order to learn more about New Delhi and Old Delhi within a short time. The scenarios in both cities including people's ways of life inspired me a lot. On the final day of the Conference, I was elected as the Secretary General of the body, SSEASR (South and Southeast Asian Association for the Study of Culture and Religion). I came back to Bangkok with lots of good memories and determination. I saw the powerful capacity of India from that short trip. I was inspired to do the Indian Studies since then.

I wrote an article in Thai about my first impression from India published in one Journal named "Cultural Review" of Nakornpathom Province. I also submitted this Journal to His Excellency Mr. Vivek Katju, Hon'ble Ambassador, Embassy of India. He asked his staff to translate it into English and replied to me.
