School Days

I was sprucing up my cupboard when I hit upon a photo from my school days . A group photo of ‘6th B’ . Thanks to Jayanthi for recalling that it was a sixth class pic .

Anyways now let me try and identify the people in this photograph . There are four rows of people in this pic ( A , B , C , D ) where A is the topmost row . Lets start with the one and only ‘ME’ . Yep I spotted myself . A9 , thats where I am .

I almost forgot abt the pic . Here is the link

D8 – Anusha ( hosteller ; joined an SSC school later ; her father was an MP )

D9 – Supriya ( aaah ; you cannot stop writing about her ; loquacious , ebullient , sprightly , vivacious ; we once had a discussion in the class about whether egg was vegetarian / NV . She was the only person who believed it was vegetarian and took on the whole class single-handedly ; at last the headmistress – the parsi lady- had to come and settle the debate )

Phewwww , that was a lot of typing . Anyways , if errors crept into this post , please let me know of them and I shall make changes . I felt nostalgic after writing this post . A few people in this group photo are on ORKUT . The others , I hope to find them soon .

CyA ,

Antiquated first paragraph : I cannot remember whether it was taken in 5th class or 6th class . But we might have left junior school by that time . I donot remember when we held a party to celebrate our leaving the junior school . Was it at the end of 4th class ? One can spot durgaprasad sir in this pic ; so it might have been a 6th class pic . Not sure
