Left side column:
Punjab Engg. College, Deemed to be university, is completing 100 years. For 100 weeks, Dainik Bhaskar will tell the interesting stories of the journey of the P.E.C. and its Alumni. Alumni come from Canada, Australia, USA etc. to P.E.C. to refresh their memories.
Main body:
Got admission in P.E.C. based on 3rd position in Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak in 1983, in Electrical Engg. as there was no admission test at that time. Outside state students used to get admission based on merit. Once he got out of college to bring something from the road between PGI and PU. There was no market, but some foodstuffs used to be there. He was caught by the Seniors there and they asked him to go and ask the name of the girls standing there. At that time, there was hardly any atmosphere to talk to the girls and have their friendship. He hesitatingly went to them and told them that ragging is going on, so pl. tell your names. After understanding the full matter, the girls told their names and he got off the hook from the seniors. This is told by the founder of efloraofindia.com. He has been working on trees, plants and herbs since 2007 and website provides information on thousands of species of nature from all over the world, free of cost. He is currently working in Central Railway, Mumbai.
He says in 1983, when he got admitted, there used to be very few Engg. colleges. He tells that in 1984 when the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was murdered in 1984, the students were immediately asked to vacate hostels and go home. And when they came back, there were no restrictions. With a group of 5 students in final years, they worked on a project to find out a solution on how to use and transport straw and chaff (by product of wheat and rice after harvesting), which is very light and difficult to carry in large quantities.


Very interesting sir.

You are a source of inspiration for all of us.


It is really nice to read, it feels nostalgic!

You’re enthusiastic and inspiring always. Congratulations.


What matters to me is that most of our moderators are role models, in their areas. And that is a great thing for the future of efloraofindia.

It is like having our Boardroom full of role models, who are complementing the efforts of each other.
