I have a mail from K S Dugal, who is currently in the US, that Mr B R Roberts passed away yesterday, Thursday, April, 12, 2018.
I have just received another message with the obituary notice which is sent as an attachment to this mail.
There are many memories of this warm and affectionate teacher. He was House Master, Lefroy and he meant a lot to so many of us. I will write more and in detail as more and more memories pour in. Right now the shock of his passing away is hard to bear. Leaves you empty.
I am trying to find more details since I am sure some of you would like to contact his family.
May his soul rest in peace.

Mr. Roberts passed away on 12th April. Haven’t got any more details yet.
He had been n Pune since early ’80s as principal of Bishops School here. He retired several years ago.
The Passing of a Brother Cottonian.
It is with a very very heavy heart that I inform the OCA:
Narendra Nath Khanna “Nini” ( Mountain )
Lefroy Class of 1968 passed on, on 13 January 2018.
MOUNTAIN was a gentle soul and lived a quiet sedate life in Nasik..
In School he was that dashing handsome dude, Actor, Prefect, Sportsman and a through Gentleman.
He was closely related to my Brother Sharat ( Lefroy ) and me both as Family, Friend and the guy who whacked me with his favourite leather slipper..after breakfast.
He spent many years in New York working with the Bhumitra Brothers ( Lefroy) in the Chatwal range of restaurants;also in Bangkok with the Narulas( Rivaz).
He had some very close friends; friends that he made in BCS, for life.
He will be remembered, always.
