OCA Nepal Official Inception

Dear Old Cottonians

I am writing to you all today with pleasure and pride as our long-pursued aim has now turned into achievement. OCA Nepal is finally official!

On 27 May 2016, Mr. Sukhinder Singh, President, OCA, accompanied by his wife and Col. R. Dewan, visited us here in Kathmandu and witnessed the official inception OCA Nepal.

Lead by Mr. Prabal SJB Rana, batch of 1954, the first President of OCA Nepal, 24 other Nepalese OCs and their wives attended this event. Although small in number, with 47 registered Nepalese OCs, we all Nepalese OCs are very happy to have established OCA Nepal and we look forward to taking our association to greater heights.

I have attached a few pictures of the event along with this email.

We would also like to encourage Nepalese OCs around the world to join us. They may inquire by emailing: ocanepal@gmail.com

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Ayush Rajbhandari

    Great News ! Congratulations OCA Nepal. You guys were such a great part of the BCS scenario in the 50’s, and I wish all of you the very best.
    I remember all you “SJB’s” while in school between 1952 and 1956. Prabla, you were my late brother, Ravi Ahluwalia’s classmate (Alu 1), and it is special that you are the first President. Best of Luck.
