Kasturi Heroes group, an effort initiated by Dinesh Soni in 2001, is a group comprising of the past and present generation of the young minds at IFFCO Kalol. A near 80-member strong community, Kasturi Heroes has been organizing reunions for the young members of IFFCO Kalol who grew up in the township. This was the first time a reunion was organized for the parents. Kasturi Heroes takes this opportunity to offer its tribute to all those who put their heart and soul in building a great organization named IFFCO, way back in 1970s…They could put life into the concrete buildings with their dedication and love, which has elegantly stood the test of time.

It was an expression of our gratitude to them for giving us a childhood at IFFCO Kalol that has left memorable footprints in our lives, which can never be washed away by time!

Thanks, D K Tayal Thanks for your enlightening Invitation Letter on the coming meet. It is really embracing for me to look back almost 35years when I first landed at Kalol without knowing what the future would be. But slowly and gradually it was this family of colleagues whom I look forward to meet on 19/20th instant made me comfortable to the situation. A stint of almost 23years of stay at Kasturinagar from C-10 to B-9 to B-4 and finally to A-6 seeing sea changes in the colony during this period and never thought of leaving the place. Slowly rose from the position of Area Engineer to Joint General Manager. I would like to appreciate the tremendous efforts at your end to bring this meet a reality, which would really be a big achievement for you and your team. With best wishes. R S Mathur

On this planet, there is a beautiful place called Kasturinagar. The beauty was not in the place but the people living there, being of different region, community, caste & religion. The only religion they followed was Humanity & then a new community grew which was named as “KASTURIHEROES” (KH). In simple words to describe KH are : Young, vibrant, talented, enthusiastic, creative & very very naughty. Lets peep in their beautiful world of “Kasturinagar”.
The nutritious food, fashioned clothings, the exhaustive shopping list ended up here. This is the way to the dream town – KASTURINAGAR. Lets drive through the gate & cherish the good memories along! The GOD lives here ! The place to get the normal flue and fever cured. Well and the KH were really scarred of the injections ;).
This is the school where they took the lessons of life. Some shared the last bench masti, some shared the first desk smart student. Some just peeped outside the window and enjoyed the nature & Some cannot be disclosed as this will go on the social networking site….. ;)
The sweaty games of Badminton all the time. Showing I’m the best player. The BETS to treat the group with cold drinks & snacks If they fail to get the Badminton Court, then the 2 nd best option – Table Tennis & the same dhamal there as well. A coool Dip daily & for the health freaks
Playful days went by. Hours turned into Days, Days into Months & Years. School turned to Colleges & life started Changing. The KasturiHeroes got departed eventually in the search of professional life. As someone rightly said history repeats itself and the Kasturiheroes at Reuniting once again on 19-20 th Dec’09 celebrating the cherished past along with new members to Kasturi Family. The dialogues of Amitabh Bachhan’s Movie in the open air. Ramlila & Short Plays. With lots of Popcorns & munches. Celebrating all Festivals. A cigarette puffs without family’s Knowledge. Late night sitting, the jokes, pranks. All in one the best place of all.
