Places from memory

  • visiting Ooty, the nearest town
    One weekend a month - we'd get to visit Ooty, the nearest town, on an 'outing'. It was a real treat... Here are some of the places I remember off the top my head. * King Star Bakery * Mohan's Department Store * Higginbotham's * Shinkow's - the Chinese Restaurant * Kurinji's (mmmm....paper dosas...) * Blue Hills Lodge. h/t to Yohaan for the last three. His choices at the BHL: ceylon paratha and chicken curry.

Very nice! Love the phrase "Noel plays the Lovedale Classics"

Hope to see many more; even a section called Lovedale Classics--both words and music, and perhaps images of those beautiful blue hills.

Classics I would like to see would be
(1) Lawrencia (School March) Nilgiri Hills, the home of our school days...
(2) The School Song--Sabse sundar
(3) Lead Kindly Light
(4) Ode to Joy (Hymn of the United Nations ?)
(5) Mine eyes have seen the glory of... (in my time girls and boys sang the chorus with different tunes simultaneously). That would be an interesting instrumental challenge.

Keep Posting : ).

He plays brilliantly, doesn't he? Stay tuned for more...

high up in the hills

  • Come spend time with me...
    ...high up in the blue hills of Southern India...and within the open spaces of Lawrence School, Lovedale. This boarding school is over 150 years old; it is where I spent nine years of my life - grades 4-12. Lovedale is an endless fount of stories...and I hope you enjoy reading mine! Names of teachers and students have almost all been changed to protect the privacy of innocents.
