The place where the Swahid Bedi is present in the AEC campus used to be a playground for the campus kids. There was a cricket pitch on this playground and we use to practice the game after school and on the weekends. However in the late 80's, decision was made to make a Swahid Bedi in this area. This led to a lot of protests from the people of the campus. But inspite of all the protests the Bedi was made. As a compensation, the then Principal A. K. Padmapati made a make shift cricket pitch next to the tennis court fitted with nets for practice. The new pitch did not have the fun which the old one had and the popularity of this area as a sports ground declined soon after that.
