Alumni ranging from past years and current students would get an opportunity to interact and share memories of India.

This would be possible through an Alumni Forum which would be initiated by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations Suva this year.

The alumni forum would be for students who have been to India through ICCR scholarship programmes.

ICCR director Kishan Lal Kanojia said they had been planning this for some time.

“This forum for alumni would be instrumental in providing opportunities for them to reconnect with the students and to recognise the contributions of graduates in the country,” Mr Kanojia said.

“We have been offering scholarships to more than 30 Fijian students to study in India every year and we would continue supporting Fiji.

“Once students return from their studies after two, three or five years, they can be part of this forum, get together and share their experience.”

“The forum would provide alumnis the opportunities to reconnect with fellow graduates and University staff, career development through lifelong learning, recognition, promotion and utilisation of their professional skills, experience, status and knowledge.

“This forum would be a way for students to share their experience and memories of their trip to India,” Mr Kanojia said.

There would be programmes, events, functions and other education initiatives and discussions within the Cultural Centre and the Indian High Commission which the alumnis would be able to participate in through the forum.
