Birthdays and Anniversaries in February

Dear Batchmates,
February is a really good month for the Nil alumni. For starters, Mohit Mittal is celebrating his birthday. He and Shveta are also celebrating their anniversary later this month. As I remarked to him at the time of his wedding, his “B-Day” and his “D-Day” are equidistant from “V-Day” on opposite sides. Talking of V-Day, do have a good Valentine’s Day!

Back to the announcements, another Nilgirite (sort of) Rajas Nanda is celebrating his birthday on 17th February. So, Happy Birthday to both Mohit and Rajas!

Vijay Amrit Raj Sharma and Vandana are celebrating their anniversay on 2nd February. And Dinakar and Amulya are celebrating theirs on 10th February. Happy anniversary to Vijay + Vandana, Dinakar + Amulya and Mohit + Shveta!

Now for the BIG announcement of this month… As you would expect, this too is from a Nilgirite. Sulabh Agarwal is getting married to the very charming Rutu Bole at the end of this month in Bhopal. Rutu works for Deloitte Consulting in Pittsburgh in the Enterprise Risk Services area. Our best wishes to both of you!

As a few closing remarks, please note:

  1. Apart from the mail this message is posted on on the BTech96 Announcements page at, minus the dates.
  2. Please ensure that your coordinates are up to date on the “Who is Where?” page at Do notify me of any changes that you might have had. I will update them myself while I work on a self-service mechanism.
  3. If you find a birthday / anniversary incorrectly listed or not listed at all, please let us know – it is really easy for us to correct it once we have the correct information.

Vaibhav & Tantan.

Happy New Year and Birthday / Anniversary Wishes for January

Wish you all a very Happy New Year! Let’s hope that the new year will bring some cheer to the market, among other things.

A couple of important things first:

  1. The monthly wishes will also be posted on the Announcements page at
  2. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on BTech96 – I have removed all references to the date of birth and address on BTech96, for purposes of security. This includes the birthday on the Announcements page, though the mail will continue to have it.

Congratulations to the following for getting a year older…

  • N.Surender Reddy
  • Neeraj Dumir
  • Vijay Amrit Raj Sharma
  • Shuchi Chawla

… And to the following for their anniversaries

  • Rohit Kumar and Namrata
  • Harsh Nanda and Ranjeeta
  • Vamsi Krishna and Rishika
  • Munish Singla and Sarika

Again, if your anniversary or a family member’s birthday is missing from the list above or is incorrect, it is not because we don’t like you – it is only because we don’t have the information. So for any missing birthdays (of family members) and anniversaries, please send me (Tantan) a note.

Happy New Year again!
Vaibhav & Tantan
