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.

Agree with you on both counts: the stew and the tea. Somehow, every cup of tea i've drunk since school has almost been like a yearning to rediscover that wonderful flavour of school tea. Nothing's come even close...

And the one thing i developed a lifelong dislike for was caramel custard. the gloppy stuff on our side plates at dinner on Sunday nights.

PS - do post longer pieces, Priya, your blog is so evocative


Malini - I remember the caramel custard - I can't eat it either! :-) Oh, Lordy!

I'm working on a couple of pieces that should be up soon and am toying with the idea of Lovedale recipes...if I can find someone to help me with them!


I passed out of Lovedale in 2002 and I love what you have done with this blog. There are some things we remember the exact same way!!

Just wanted to add the beetroot halwa (Eww)and making maggi in a bucket!!


Celina - how did I miss this? :-) Maggi in a bucket?? Beetroot Halwa?? Tell me more! The Maggi sounds.............delicious.

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.
