The University of Mumbai in a bid to impress the peer review committee of the National Accreditation and Assessment Committee (NAAC) is approaching all its illustrious alumni for an interaction. The list includes celebrities like Madhuri Dixit, cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, businessman Asit Kotecha and politician Manohar Joshi. The university is expecting 100-150 members at the 14th March, Wednesday event. The three-day visit of the NAAC peer team to the universitys campuses in Kalina and Fort began on 13th March, Tuesday.
After this, the team will submit its report and a rating will be awarded to the university. Since Mumbai University does not have, alumni associations of its own, officials are also approaching celebrities through their affiliated colleges. Dilip Vengsarkar, an alumnus of R. A. Podar College, received a letter from the university requesting him to be present for the interaction. Vengsarkar, who has been unwell since 12th March, Monday, may drop in for some time if he recovers from his bout of fever. “I would love to be there, if I recover”, said the 1978 batch pass out. I took two extra years to complete my graduation in commerce, after I missed two exams due to my tours abroad.However, my professors, especially M. V. Chandgadkar, used to offer us extra lectures, said Vengsarkar, adding that Gurudas Kamath was also his classmate. Businessman Asit Kotecha, who recently donated Rs 32 crore to the university, said “he would be present for the alumni interaction with the NAAC committee”. The university is also trying to get in touch with Madhuri Dixit who graduated from Sathaye (Parle) College, and is an alumnus of the university. A couple of national-level athletes have also agreed to come for the event. We hope to see at least 100 of them, said an official.
