Some Things we did

On some Sundays the Prefect would announce that we would be going to Lands End for an outing. We knew what it meant, so we had old jam bottles ready. Then we treked in orderly lines in pairs on Hill Road towards St Andrews Church and along the sea face to Lands End. Once there we went onto the Rocks and looked for black maulies, found them and managed to get them into the jam bottle along with the sea water. These were our pets and every day we rubbed two guttlies to gether to drop the crumbs into the bottle to feed the fish. I am not sure where, but we at times managed to get raw mangoes, cut them into bits and soak them in salted water as a pickle.

Bandra Fair

Some years ago when I was in Mumbai to visit my Mother and sister, the Bandra Fair was on and I thought it would be a good idea to go around and remember old memories. I was so badly disappointed that if I ever go again it would be only to visit Mother Mary on the Mount. However Bandra Fair of old was an event to look forward to. We, especially the boarders looked forward to the week in September. If we were lucky enough to have saved any pocket money with our Prefect, it would be doled out on that first Sunday. Else I hoped to bump into a relative who would say "here take this pocket money and go enjoy yourself" or I'd drop in at my Aunt's place where I'd be really fed and end up with a few more Rupees.

Teacher Teacher

There I was all of five years old, with my newest buddies and co boarders, Brian Edwards, and Bedford. We all looked similar, or so I thought. Except that I had straight hair define my cranium, Brian had this wierd red brown hair with a fancy curl on top and Bedford had a puff. I really can't remember the teacher, yet all I can remember of teachers upto the fourth class is cowboy teacher. Boy, she was the prettiest thing I saw and I fell in love for the first time. I guess she got the nickname 'Cowboy' because at a picnic she wore a tight pant with a checks shirt. You have to admit it suited her.

Joe my Hero - it's hard to imagine

'Tis hard to imagine the medicine man old and infirm on a bed.In this child's eyes all was well for Joe was his Peter Pan! Hard to imagine the medicine man with heart so large and full of love, old and infrm on a bed a battle weary hero whose had enough. Imagine the medicine man hale and hearty, infirm on a bed. Get up Peter Pan! The Medicine Man, our history he holds. Now give him a hand! make men in his mold! Medicine Man, our Hero Peter Pan. In a class by yourself both teacher and taught! Since words fail me and there's so much to tell, I just put it down as it came. So there you are! I hope to tell all I can remember especially in my very childhood when in that intimidating time, when there was one person who understood. That was Joe the medicine man.
