The editors are elated to place before the community Sannidhi, the annual magazine of the Institute. ‘Sannadhi’ as the name suggests is ‘to be close to’ or ‘to be in the proximity of’. Through this issue, we have made an attempt to move closer to the community so that the mutual ties get more strengthened. This issue of Sannidhi is a platter which carries on it the aspirations of the institute, the achievements of the faculty and the students, presenting a glimpse of both the academic and extracurricular activities of the academic year 2008-2009. Thus, the attempt is to take the annual magazine beyond mere documentation.
