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.

Dear Ma'am,
I'm learning your blogs as it is a chapter in the book you mentioned above! It really made English more interesting to study!!!!!! I love your blogs! Please keep writing!


Hi, Aviva! How lovely to hear from you and I am so delighted to read your comment about making English more interesting - thank you! Do you like to write as well?

I suspect I will be writing - and blogging - for a long, long time :-) I hope you continue to enjoy reading...and continue commenting.

Dear Ma'm,
I'm also one of Aviva's friends and classmates! I too have this chapter in my English book and it actually does make English interesting! Please keep up the good work! :)

Dear Ma'am
I'm also learning about your blogs as a chapter in school.
It is one of the most interesting chapters!
I love your blogs and i will continue reading your blogs in the future. Amazing Work!


Hi, Neelaja! What a treat - thank you so much for commenting! I am enjoying being part of a textbook :-)


Hi, Keshav! And thank you so much as well - I'm really happy to know you will be a regular reader!

It is an interesting textbook isn't it? One of my favorite chapters is Tagore's 'The Postmaster'. I first read it in school and remember always wondering why he left Ratan behind!

Do you have a favorite story or a poem in this book?

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.
