"I have always been intrigued by a question what is IEEE? Does IEEE exist locally? or it exists only as website and journals or transactions? Is it only a research organization? When I looked back and reflected on matter realized that "WE"- the set of volunteers is like a "local IEEE" to the community around us. It is phenomenon of "local IEEE" which brings feeling of togetherness and team spirit. All "I's" (individuals) merge and become "WE" (team) through IEEE. Thus It is really my pleasure and privilege as a volunteer to get associated with the best IEEE student branch under the Gujarat section"
