kavitaThe Old Students Association of Hindu College honoured its alumni, who have made their mark in their respective fields, at a recently-held event in the capital. Arnab Goswami was honoured with an award for excellence in journalism. Neha Khanna won the award under the Young Achievers’ category in the field of media. Arun Pandya and VBL Mathur were felicitated with the lifetime achievement award. Rachana Yadav was honoured for her achievement in the field of classical dance (Kathak).

Kavita Sharma released a book on the occasion. Talking about her book, Sharma said, “I’m very emotional right now. The idea to pen this book on the legacy and history of Hindu College was first suggested by Bharat Ram, the chairman, in 1974.” Justice AK Sikri, the chief guest here, said, “I’m happy to see that the alumni of Hindu College, who have gained eminence in various spheres, have been helping the college maintain its traditions.” The rivalry between St Stephen’s College and Hindu was visible in the words of the awardees. After receiving the award, Goswami said, “Debating was something I learned from this college. During my postgraduation days, I used to say I don’t belong to St Stephen’s, and that’s why I debate like this.”

Lalit Bhasin, the OSA president of Hindu College, said, “Over the years, this function has become a must-attend event, and eminent alumni participate in large numbers here.”
