   Diamond Year Celebrations Attendees at Kota House
We thank all our course mates and our Lady members who made an effort to join on this historic event travelling from around India and parts of the world. We were 70 strong who gathered on the Lawns of Kota House to start the day with 2 mins silence in the memory of the departed With nostalgic memories old friends met each other with hugs galore. Pictures were being clicked by one and all. The celebrations continued till upto 3 pm after which the crowd started to depart having, by then, enjoyed a sumptuous spread. Some of the pictures of the function are attached here.

We extend our warm good wishes to you all till we meet again.

Dear Course mates,

On behalf of the Golden Jubilee Reunion 2010 Committee, it gives me great pleasure to address all our Army, Navy & Air Force course mates from the 16 NDA/ 25 IMA/ 12 Tech & 10 NCC Courses.  In particular, with great humility and reverence, I address the respected widows of our departed dear friends of these Courses.

The 50th anniversary of the Army Courses passing out from the IMA Dehra Dun is being celebrated at the IMA from Thursday 17 – Saturday 19 June, 2010, as per program at Appendix ‘A’

While a number of mails, newsletters have mentioned this event already, this is the first comprehensive instruction being issued after planning, coordination and research. Our effort is that this should reach each one of you. However, if any individual is missed out due to out of date contact details, as our ambassador, please pass this information to others and let us have their names, addresses and telephone numbers (email ID) to allow us to personally invite those who are unfortunately missed out.

You will observe that after the IMA event, the program includes an optional visit to “Gurdip Uban’s Resort (GUR).  He and Rano have very graciously invited all GJR attendees to spend 19th/20th June 2010 at GUR which is located on the banks of the River Yamuna, 45 minutes drive from the IMA on National Highway 123. His largesse includes transport from IMA to GUR, night stay and victuals both solid & liquid. We can over indulge and beat it up.

He has 11 rooms, some with large lobbies in addition to a big Bar Room and Terrace overlooking the river and can accommodate 25 couples on a twin sharing basis. If we are more in number, then we will be accommodated in the Garhwal Nigam Rest House at Dakpathar which is 10 minutes drive away from his place. In the rest house, the occupants will be required to pay the Government charges for their room.  All meals will be at GUR.

Some members have already sent in their names for stay at GUR. Others may please get in touch with him directly or through us. Since some queries have been raised, it is clarified that all costs including transportation, food and accommodation (except for those staying at the Garwhal Nigam) will be borne by Gurdip Uban.

Another optional plan (for those who wish to wash their sins) is a visit to Rishikesh/ Hardwar on 19th June 2010,

Yet another option is a visit to Pegasus Institute. For further details kindly contact Farouk Mistry (
