First and foremost we congratulate our Chapter President S. Sukhinder Singh for being elected to the post of Vice President of OCA India. He shall now take over as the next President of OCA India. This indeed is an honor for all members of the OCA(India)Northern Chapter.
I on behalf of the Northern Chapter would also like to extend our congratulations to Mr. Roy Christopher Robinson, the Head Master of Bishop Cotton School for the commendable effort which he and his team have put in towards BCS being awarded the Best Boys Boarding School in India by Education World. The Head Master has very graciously accepted the invitation of the Northern Chapter to attend the annual meet.
It is time again for our annual get-together and I am sure all of you are anxiously looking forward to renewing old contacts and remembering your wonderful days spent at BCS.

REVISED Itinerary for the Old Cottonian’s group visiting Thailand

Dear OC,

This is to inform you that the Silver Jubilee Celebration of the OCA (India) Northern Chapter which was scheduled to be held in the month of October, 2013 now stands deferred on account of the social commitments which most OC’s would be involved in during that period as it would be a heavy festival season.

The Silver Jubilee Celebration is now expected to be clubbed with the Annual Meet of the OCA (India) Northern Chapter which would take place early December, 2013. The trip to Thailand however will still take place from the 6th till 9th November, 2013. All those interested to take this trip can forward their acceptance till the 15th of October, 2013.

OCs from other chapters can also participate in this trip to Thailand as it is not restrictive to the Northern Chapter.

Ajay Thiara
