It has been started at Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India in the year 2005 and I joined the organization initially as an active member and then later as the event co-coordinator for a semester term. As one of the board member, I was involved in smooth planning, promotion and execution of the events. Along with other team members, we have organized guest lectures, first anniversary celebrations, visit to planetarium etc. The membership drive and other things led to the development of many things.
