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.

Biology:
Ma Thoma,Justin ,Vijayaraghavan -the teachers.
The frog,rats (bigger one if you are pals with Vincent the attender) and a few students-the victims.
I remember etching on the table...my name ,year etc and at one time had a conversation with another person from another batch ....talk about texting in those days.
Remember Homi Sethna's appendix...he had donated it after an emergency surgery at Ooty or Wellington.....(he was in sumeru and guess Justin ,by authority had rights to all body parts)
We used to put a few parts of the frog or rat into the satchels of the junior girls going thru at the time of dissection....and wait patiently for the squeals......Guess it would be called frog or rat play!!!!!
Will keep posting on the recollections!

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.
