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
