Words hardly have the power to chronicle the chords of happiness that reverberated in the hearts of the ex members of the club when they gathered together once more in the JUPC REUNION 2013 on the beautiful evening of 29th Dec. It was a really daunting task for us to organise such a meet but the evening “adda” made us forget all the fatigue. The event was held at Gandhi Bhavan in the main campus of Jadavpur University. Ashok Mukhopadhay inaugurated the event by lighting the ceremonial lamp. He is one of the founding members of this 50 year-old institution. Tushar Kanti Dutta, whom we lovingly called TKD sir, wowed everyone with the screening of his documentary on the growth cycle of various insects. We requested Kushal da(Kushal Gangopadhyay) to show us some of his works. It is needless to say we all were left spellbound. Rishi da (Debarshi DuttaGupta) introduced us with some of the editing techniques in digital photography. Milan da (Milan Sar) was in charge of hosting the entire programme. Swing da’s (Madan Mohan Chakraborty) speech took everyone down the memory lane and the new members came to know about various unknown trivia. Pradeep Sen, Sunil Kumar Dutt, Soumitra Datta graced the occasion too. The event came to an end with a wonderful dinner.

We will cherish forever that evening because the boundary which everyone assumes so readily to be present between us and the seniors vanished into thin air and all that prevailed was a friendly warm atmosphere in which we all grouped together, gossiped and discussed about photography. Truly the bonding JUPC develops and the kinship it inculcates among its members is so strong that it outlives all others thus proving again and again that JUPC is truly one big family.





JUPC conducts photography outings every weekend on a regular basis. But the Sunday of 19th October presented a bit different morning to the members. TAMRON, a leading photographic lenses manufacturing company, partnered with JUPC to conduct a photowalk from the Flower Market at Mullick Ghat. The outing saw a huge turnout. The freshers were bubbling with a lot of enthusiasm. Although TAMRON provided us with many of its high quality lenses, the 90mm f/2.8 MACRO 1:1 lens turned out to be the favourite one. At the end of the day, all the members were happy to get a number of good clicks. JUPC thanks TAMRON for appreciating the photographic heritage of the club and associating itself with the club. We will be looking forward to similar photowalks in the future.
