On 1st October, 2022, an Alumni Meet was organized by the Pillai Education Alumni Association at MES’ Pillai College of Education and Research in New Panvel. The event was hosted by two alumni, Ms. Ichha Mehrotra and Ms. Dipti Nambiar. The purpose of the meet was to bring together former students of the institution and provide them with an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new connections. The event commenced with a warm welcome extended to all the alumni in attendance. A prayer was held, followed by the ceremonial lighting of the lamp, signifying the start of the gathering. These traditional rituals added a touch of solemnity and reverence to the occasion, creating an atmosphere of unity and shared values.

Throughout the day, various activities and performances were organized to entertain the attendees. The present batch of B.Ed. students showcased their talent through captivating dance performances, adding excitement and liveliness to the event.

To keep everyone informed about the activities and progress of the alumni association, the new Joint Secretary of PEAA presented an alumni report. This report gave the attendees a glimpse into the initiatives and achievements of the association, highlighting the contributions and efforts made by the alumni community as a whole.

Following the formal proceedings, the atmosphere became more festive as the attendees engaged in Garba-dandiya celebrations. The traditional Gujarati dance form brought everyone together on the dance floor, providing a joyful and energetic experience for all. It was a moment of pure celebration, where the alumni let loose and danced to their hearts’ content, creating lasting memories and strengthening the bond between them.

Although some alumni were unable to attend the meet, their absence was felt and there was a collective desire to involve them in future community initiatives undertaken by the Pillai Education Alumni Association. The event served as a reminder of the strong connections formed during the time spent at the institution and reinforced the importance of staying connected and contributing to the growth and welfare of the alumni community. The event not only fostered a sense of belonging among the alumni but also encouraged their continued involvement in the association’s future endeavors.
