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.

It was a pleasure to read your blog and the photographs by Mr. Gantzer were fabulous. It felt really good to see these pictures as I too wasn't able to go for the Founder's. Thank you for bringing Lawrence closer to all our hearts.

Wonderful writing on the Founder's. Am kicking myself for completely having forgotten about the dates until it was too late. A very nostalgic coverage of the day and don't feel as bad that I couldn't attend. Thanks for helping those of us who were unable to make it to this memorable anniversary.

Regards

Trivikram

Thank you, Trivikram! It was a pleasure, despite the odd hours it took to pull this together across time zones! I'm glad so many enjoyed the coverage...

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.
