Friends, Romans, Countryman. Lend me your ears. . . Batch 1978!

Friends, Romans, Countryman. Lend me your ears…

Forty years ago, these lines, from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar dominated the minds of 20+ Cottonians as they prepared for their ICSE English Literature exams.
It was November 1978.

Now in November 2018, this same group gathered together as Friends, Brothers and Cottonians

The 40th reunion of the BCS batch of 78 was celebrated in Delhi over a period of 3 days. On the 27th, dinner hosted by Shiv Mehra. On the 28th, dinner hosted by Rajesh Mohan. On the 29th, dinner hosted by Kanad Sayal.

Raj Mahant (R) joined us from Manali, Nitin Malhotra (R) from Jammu, Kanwaljit Singh (R) from Shimla, Manvender Singh (L) from Mumbai.
Rajnish Bhatia (R) from Chandigarh, along with Ranjeet Mehta (L) and Harnam Chauhan (I) joined us from Himachal, on the 29th.
Also present were Ashim Kapoor (L), Hardayal Chauhan (C), Rajesh Dogra (I), Sanjeev Sood (L), Shiv Mehra (R), Robby Mohan (L), and Kanad Sayal (I) from Delhi.

It was a memorable three days.

Fondly remembering and retelling stories of the the good old days spent in BCS 40 years ago. Importantly, now reconnecting with each other. Some paths had never crossed – so some of us were literally meeting each other after 40 years!

We parted ways after dinner on the 29th. But just before we bid each other good bye, we all stood together and sang the school song – and that truly completed our reunion
