BOHO, or whatever this acronym stands for, is the Social club of the National Dairy Development Board established after we moved to the campus in 1970.

A polygraphed magazine Facts and Solid non Facts was started and a competition to suggest a name for the club was organised by Shri Ashok Koshy, IAS the then Executive Assistant to Chairman NDDB and later Director ( Administration ) who was the moving force behind organising this social club. Entry fee was Rs 1/-. A total of31 entries were received. Finally the jury selected BOHO as the official name of the club. If I remember correctly it was PT Jacob who suggested the name BOHO and got the prize of Rs 31/-Many believe that B in Boho stands for Buffalo making BoHO as Buffaloes of the highest order. The opinion is highly divided as B stands for many other words in English. 😁🙏🏼

Shri Nagar’s write-up describes year 1971 but the pictures posted are those of New Year Dinner of Dec 1972, a BOHO function where everyone was supposed to come in fancy dress.
May be he would like to write on that too…….
Point noted Doctor Saheb. Your request will be conveyed to Shri Nagar. I agree pictures got mixed up on 1 April 1971, the Kheda District Table Tennis Tournament that BOHO organised ( as pointed out by Shri Sen Mazumdar on Facebook ) and the Dinner of December 1972, your point out. But let us not forget BOHO day is 1 April. So such mix up is alright😀
Very interesting 💐😊
