A Global Alumni Meet … in the second half of 2011.

February 22, 2010 by

Dear Alumni,


IHM Mumbai is all set to organize its new initiative…

A Global Alumni Meet … in the second half of 2011.                                   

A two-days branded event.

The main purpose of this Alumni Meet is to work together to elevate the image, funding and overall success of IHM Mumbai while strengthening the value of this degree for all alumni. Its vehicle to accomplish these goals is the THANGAM PHILIP MEMORIAL LECTURE series, which the distinguished alumni as well as present students would always look forward to and benefit from.

Day 1.     Open House during the day.    Evening will  be the highlight of this meet : The Thangam Philip Memorial  Lecture Dinner .  This broadcasted lecture will be followed by a contributory sit-down dinner.

Day 2.      Devoted to each batch having its own reunion and its own programme.

Thangam Philip Memorial Lecture will be instituted in 2011 in memory of the former Principal of IHM Mumbai ,  Padmashree  Miss Thangam  E Philip who dedicated her life to pioneering hospitality education in the Indian  sub continent. The topic of this lecture will be based on any subject of contemporary interest by a GLOBAL THOUGHT LEADER whose ideas have impacted the world for the development and good of humanity.

Alumni of IHM Mumbai are a product of  what John Tribe refers to as vocational action oriented curriculum which is industrially relevant. These lecture series are designed around reflective vocational or even liberal reflection space of the hospitality education curriculum designed to develop the person and their powers of mind. It is intended to make a vital contribution to the hospitality industry by inducing managers  to think outside the existing practices and paradigms.

A  branded event of this nature needs customized  logo, brand name, slogan, website with public commenting, postcards, t-shirts, custom PowerPoint layouts and handouts.  The second event of the series could be integrated with 60th anniversary of IHM Mumbai in 2014. All of these would work together to produce an amazing branded event that IHM Mumbai alumni would be proud of.

Request from Rajendra Kelshikar, 1975 batch

November 15, 2006 by

My name is Rajendra Kelshikar. I am from the Bombay Catering College, as we called it so in seventies. I have an appeal and our friend R. K. Saxena the Principal of our college as of now gave me this idea of writing to some of our friends. I am located in Poona, India.

We have a new mid size full service four-star hotel with sixty rooms coming up in Poona.

The name of the hotel is ‘Deccan Rendezvous’.

The hotel would be operational by December first week.

There was a delay of about four months in getting the property ready. In the mean while the expected happened. We, as in case of every one else in hospitality industry have a problem. With BPO and allied sectors in plenty in Poona these companies picked some of our recruited and trained staff up.

We have requirement of mid and senior level managers for the front office, kitchen, food & beverage departments.

I am writing this to request if you have any candidate looking for re-locating within India or even from out of the country you may please ask them to e-mail me on my address [email protected] . In case you need to have any other clarification on the above you are most welcome to establish contact with me.

In the mean while to know more about what am I doing please visit

Let me give you my e-mail id once again: [email protected]

Thanking you and wishing you all great times ahead.


P.S. Regardless my above appeal some of you who if at all remember me are welcomed to write to me as it will be of interest to know your where abouts
