Meetups During Siddhartha Menon's US Visit


In 2018, RiVAA organized its first ever meetups during Siddhartha’s visit to the US. The meetups were organized in NYC (April 14, 2018),  Chicago (April 21, 2018), DC (April 28, 2018) and SF Bay Area (May 6th, 2018). It was well attended with approximately 175 RV alumni coming together with batch representation ranging from 1962 to 2011.


These events would not have been possible without the generous support and efforts from Hari (‘96) & Himayani Ramanan, Dilshad Marolia (‘96), Swami Nathan (‘87),  Paresh Shah (‘84), Naresh Bharadwaj (‘87), Ramana Mulpury (‘87),  Ananth Chintamaneni (‘93) and Arati Nagaraj (‘88).


Here are photos (SF Bay Area, Chicago, New York) from the gathering and RiVAA presentation that was shared during the meetups.


Since the event, regional whatsapp groups have been created for Chicago, New York, DC and SF Bay Area. We hope this will help RV alumni connect across batches in these regions.

We're confident that the energy and enthusiasm from these meetups can be translated to future gatherings. For further information, please reach to your batch coordinators or email
