In Loving Memory of Ayush Sharma and Avni Kukreti

We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Ayush Sharma and Avni Kukreti, Josephites of the graduating class of 2012, in a tragic car accident.

Ayush and Avni were cherished members of the Josephite community, admired for their intelligence, kindness, and joyful nature. They both brought joy and laughter to those around them.
Ayush was a sailor in Merchant Navy, and Avni was running a beautiful cafe.
Their presence will be deeply missed by their families, friends, teachers, and classmates.

In this time of immense grief, our thoughts and prayers are with Ayush and Avni's families and loved ones. May they find comfort and strength in the memories they hold dear.

Om Shanti.

Wg Cdr Vikrant Uniyal ascent of Mount Everest (on 21 May 2022) stands not only as a remarkable feat of human endurance but also as a powerful catalyst for inspiring generations to come. By unfurling the national flag and singing the anthem at the peak, he didn't just conquer a summit; he symbolically elevated the spirit of his nation and its people, in the 75th year of Indian Independence. Vikrant's journey transcends mere adventure; it becomes a potent narrative of courage, patriotism, and the relentless pursuit of excellence. Through his audacious endeavor, he has not only etched his name in the annals of mountaineering history but has also ignited a flame of inspiration in the hearts of countless youths, urging them to dream big and reach for the highest peaks, both figuratively and literally. Vikrant Uniyal's triumphant ascent of Mount Everest, coupled with his stirring rendition of the national anthem at its summit, serves as a beacon of hope and empowerment, reminding us all that with unwavering determination and a fervent love for one's country, the human spirit knows no bounds.

Josephites residing in Mumbai have a special bond among themselves. They are constantly in touch and had been meeting at least twice a year to relive the school days and catch up with the latest developments in their lives ever since the first alumni dinner was held way back in 2011. However, COVID stalled this activity, and it took 3 years for everyone to regroup. When the proposal for the next meet was floated in the Whatsapp group, it was met with great excitement. Batchmates, seniors, and juniors, who had been meeting regularly and become like huge families, had not seen each other in 3 years. The date was fixed for 14th April, and the location was kept at a central place considering everyone’s convenience. Dr. Sanjay Gupta (ISC 88 batch) and Mr. Dhawal Desai (Cambridge 1972 batch) initiated the thought, which was put into action mode by Gautam Chaturvedi (ISC 1989 batch). Surbhi Arora (ISC 1987 batch) was prompt in securing the venue and getting a fantastic deal with separate enclosures, a variety of starters, drinks, and a sumptuous buffet. People started trickling in around 7.30, and by 8.30, the party was in full swing. There were quite a few attending the alumni dinner for the first time, but immediately felt at home. Dhaval Sir, the senior-most attendee, proposed that the group meet every 4 months and apart from just meeting for drinks and food, add a pro-active agenda to the activity where people with experience in their fields

The vibrant springtime bloomed on April 7th, 2024, as the SJA Alumni Association embarked on a delightful hike to the picturesque Sura Devi Temple , with Mr. Ajay Sharma being the perfect guide. The scenic trail transformed into a photographer's paradise, with towering Sal trees standing tall on either side, their lush green canopy filtering sunlight, and creating a cool, refreshing atmosphere. This invigorating escape from the city's bustle provided the perfect opportunity for alumni members to reconnect with nature and each other.

"Legacy and Leadership: A Farewell Ode to the SJA Alumni Association Journey" Dearest Josephites and esteemed members of SJA AA, "In the grand mosaic of leadership, succession weaves a critical thread, ensuring the continuity of our collective legacy. Like a sagacious gardener who plants saplings whose shade they might never enjoy, a visionary leader cultivates a future that extends well beyond their tenure." This poignant metaphor deeply resonates with me as I contemplate the path we have traversed together in our distinguished SJA Alumni Association (SJA AA). As I stand at this significant crossroad, with the twilight of my tenure as President upon us, I am imbued with a profound sense of gratitude and a palpable sense of pride. Today is not merely a transitional moment but a milestone – the inauguration of the new Management Committee – signifying a chapter of both culmination and commencement in our illustrious journey. Reflecting on the past having served for six years, amidst the twelve vibrant years of our Association's history, it has been my utmost honor and privilege to serve twice as your President and also as a Secretary. This tenure has been an extraordinary odyssey, marked by our collective endeavors that have propelled the SJA AA to unprecedented heights. As we approach the bi-annual turnover, my heart swells with humility for having been an integral part of three such epochal ceremonies. This final act in my presidential capacity offers a unique vantage point for introspection – a chance to retrospectively appreciate

🌟 Celebrating Bhuvanyaa, an Exceptional Josephite and a Beacon of Inspiration! 🌟 As a proud Josephite family, we're thrilled to spotlight Bhuvanyaa, an exemplary alumna who's not just achieved remarkable academic heights as the All India Topper in ISC 2013 and a Gold Medalist from NLSIU Bangalore in 2019 but continues to make us proud with her ongoing accomplishments. She’s at present with Harvard Law School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States. 🌸 Her latest article, penned for the New Year, artfully combines contemporary issues with ageless hopes. Bhuvanyaa draws inspiration from the rare and stunning December cherry blossoms in Boston. While they captivate with their beauty, these blossoms also serve as a stark, poignant symbol of our strained relationship with Mother Earth. 🌍 As 2023 comes to a close, a year marked by record-breaking temperatures and shattered expectations, Bhuvanyaa delves deep into the diverse challenges and victories that define our journey. Her writing underscores the urgency of climate change and the importance of environmental awareness. 📖 We invite you to read her compelling article. It's more than just a read; it's a call to mindfulness and action in the face of our planet's pressing challenges. Let's start the new year with reflection and responsibility. 💚 Praveen Chandhok President, SJA Alumni Association (2021-2023) #NewYearReflections #ClimateChangeAwareness #SJAAlumni #InspiringJosephites
