    The first convocation of IIT-BHU, held on Wednesday, may set a trend for such functions in the future.

    Doing away with the colonial black gown and hat, the new technocrat boys were in white dhoti-kurta or pyjama-kurta and girls in white sari or salwar-kurta, when they appeared before former President and chief guest APJ Abdul Kalam.

    Kalam was surprised by the sight but later congratulated them on their decision.

    There were 113 meritorious students from 2010, 2011 and 2012 batches who received their gold medals from the former President.

    They were a total of 2,383 students including those who had taken admission in 2006-07 onwards who received their degrees on this occasion.

    "It was an effort to break free from the shackles of colonial practices and return to the our tradition. Nothing could be more appropriate than starting this practice from the holy city of Varanasi," professor Surendra Kumar, dean of IIT-BHU, said.

    Rajeev Sangal, IIT-BHU director said the convocation for the 2013 will be held separately in October.

    We must also stop calling our judicial servants called Judges as Lordship asap. We shud address them as you bloody idiots, looters of our democracy and blood suckers of the nation.
