He has been generous in extending invitations for all possible occasions to alumni, be it networking dinners, lunches or coffee meetings at his house. He ensured that the atmosphere was the best throughout and took personal pains in making things happen. He has been participating in all the activities of the Hyderabad Chapter and encouraging others to do so. He had been the go-to man to help raise funds whenever the Chapter fell short for funds”.
