Dear All,

The Mumbai, Pune & Nashik Region OCs Reunion is being held on February 4, 2017, Saturday at 12 noon at : 

Tote on the Turf, External Section
Gate No. 5 & 6, Mahalaxmi Race Course, Mumbai 400 034
Tel.: +91 – 22 – 6157 7777
(There is a “Tote on the Turf” pin on Google maps too)

Contribution  (payable upfront into account below or at the venue):
OCs – Rs. 4,000
Students  Rs. 1,000
Spouses and girl friends are guest invitees – encouraged to attend and there are no charges for the same.

Dress :
Smart Casuals

Look forward to everyone’s presence.

As its a newly constituted Chapter, request each OC  in the Region to also contribute in addition (at least Rs. 5,000) to the Chapter Fund at :

Bank Account number is HDFC 50100055857431
Name of account OLD COTTONIANS ASSO INDIA MUMBAI CHAPT (Please note the exact name including the truncation to Asso & Chapt)
IFSC Code of the branch where account is held HDFC0000666
Branch Area : ANDHERI WEST – SEVEN BUNGALOWS, MUMBAI

Its best that the remittance is sent electronically to the above account via NEFT/RTGS/IMPS through online banking. Handling cheques would be tedious. People can of course deposit cheques at a HDFC Bank nearest to them. Do ask to be looped back into the remittance/cheque – so the contribution can be tracked to respective people.

OCA Nepal Gathering

I am happy to report another successful gathering of our small, new and growing chapter of OCA Nepal. 22 Old Cottonians, few with their spouses, and our chief guest Mr. Mike King dined together at Le Trio Restaurant in Kathmandu on 14 November 2016.

We had discussions on how to advance our association and our Khukuri merchandise, one of which was presented to Mr. King.

Mike King, son Charles King who was Captain of Bishop Cotton School from ‎1927-1928, was in Nepal for social work, particularly, for consignment of British donations to the less fortunate living in shelters in the mountains.

We look forward to have more Nepalese Old Cottonians join our association and would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Sukhinder Singh, President, OCA India, and Mr. Ajay Thiara, Secretary, OCA India for their support to OCA Nepal, especially with the sale of Khukuris during OC Week.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Ayush Rajbhandari

1966 batch 50th anniversary 2016
The class of 1966,had their reunion celebrating 50 yrs of passing out from this great institution called Bishop Cotton..
It was record gathering of 18 of us, from all corners of the globe. We had Seereeram come from Trinidad, JMS Aulakh from New Zealand, Mahi form England and Arun Bumitra from USA.
The four days we spend together were the best in a life time.. It was as if none of ever left school. It was the same bonhomie and gossip.
