After Cenenary Marathon, we plan to release AVALOKANA – a souvenir to imprint this occasion in our soul and mind. A magazine with the best of the excerpts judiciously chosen from collections of our UVCE monthly newsletter “Sampada” and much more important details to illustrate the journey of UVCE and the best of its times in print.
UVCE from times immemorial has shaped the brightest minds, yielded thousands of engineers and stood tall through all the hurdles. Therefore UVCE definitely deserves more credit and documenting it is a seamless opportunity for us to express our gratitude. Until recently, very little of UVCE history was being recorded and hence the interminable challenge remains on not being able to capture the rare occasions and moments of the olden days. We have tried our best by continuing Sampada – an online magazine- for past 8 years and counting now and this Centenary Souvenir – Avalokana – brings all of it together to give the glimpse of UVCE’s journey of ebullience.
