The guests started with light snacks, followed by each of the attendees introducing themselves to the group and an event sponsor talk from AppNeta. Athletically inclined attendees showed off their running capabilities in a game of “standing Kho-Kho” while academically inclined folks competed in Chess. US-born kids were introduced to the de-facto national game of India through playing in a nail-biting six overs a side cricket match.
A light drizzle pattered on the grounds as the guests enjoyed a delicious lunch. The picnic culminated with a few attendees earning it big in a game of Bingo. IITSINE President, Raj Laad, thanked the attendees for making the picnic a success despite the weather forecast and announced the date of October 11 for IITSINE’s Diwali party.

The Indian Institutes of Technology Society in New England (IITSINE) organized its annual summer picnic on Saturday, August 2, 2014, at the Cochituate State Park in Natick, MA. The event was free of cost to all IIT Alumni and their families residing in the greater Boston area and provided an excellent opportunity for professional networking in an informal setting. Despite the weather forecast calling for heavy rain, the event this year was well attended by more than 60 IIT alumni and their family members. Years of graduation of the attendees spanned almost 50 years — from 1965 to 2012.
