School Memories – 4

  • Xaverian: I used to love writing for the school magazine. In the early years, I would excitedly open the latest issue to see if my article was published. In later years, I solved that problem by becoming one of the Editors!
  • LBW on Thursdays: We were one of these rare schools that had Thursday as the holiday (rather than Saturday). I remember joining Leaders for a Better World (LBW) in school, as an alternative to Scouts. We would meet on Thursdays in School.  The event I used to look forward to was the Camp.

A recent memory is of taking Abhishek to school. One of the teachers retired a few months ago, and a few of us got together in her honour in the School Hall. I took Abhishek to school and showed him around. There’s a memory that will stay on with me for long: Father and son, separated by 37 years, standing together in front of some of the nature exhibits, outside the Staff Room.
