Live-feed during BCS sesquicentennial celebrations

Here is a message from Vivek Bhasin


I am trying to coordinate a live feed through a famous news network during our sesquicentennial celebrations in Simla.

What I would need is max: 2 to 3 lines of good wishes/memories etc from OCs world wide that I would transmit over the airwaves….please respond by posting your messages here so I can pick these up and prepare them for the transmission.

Time is running…so the emergency request!!

Kindest Regards – Vivek Bhasin

    POSTED ON BEHALF OF Allan Bapty:
    It is with great joy I see our dear School’s 150th anniversary.

    My great sorrow is that I am unable to be with you in these days of acknowledging the wonderful outcome of George Edward Lynch’s vision for schools to heal the wounds prevalent in his time.Tens of thousands of boys down the years have gained rich and nourishing experiences from the schools he founded, and their contribution to India from their outlook and qualities can never be measured.

    My earnest prayers for our school, the boys there now and all the Staff, is that you will be inspired and strengethened to continue the best traditions which have been built up, and which have sustained our Old Boys through their lives.

    May God be with you all today, and every day.

    Yours sincerely,

    Allan Bapty. (Rivaz 1936-38, 40-44)

    Dear Vivek Bhasin

    Congratulations & all good wishes to you and all OCs, who may read this message, on this wonderful and auspicious occasion. I was in school during those glorious ‘Fifties’ and the centenary celebrations & had hoped to be there in person during the sesquicentennial celebrations as well, but my daughter has pulled me out to Germany for her delivery. Good luck & God bless our good old school in Patina.

    Spent first five years of schooling at bcs from 71 – 76, would have passed out with class of 1981 if had not left school midway. The early formative years at the school probably built me up more than the subsequent ones , including early college. wishnig the school and all associated with it the very best of celebrations on turning 150.

    CONGRATULATIONS AND BEST WISHES DEAR SCHOOL. Here’s wishing BCS another 150 years of
    glorious existense. The comming generations of OCs will love their school even more,
    if thats possible, and take BCS to even greater heights.

    I was in BCS more than 50 years ago, joined kinder garten in 1951 and left in 1957,
    without finishing, but everything is fresh in my mind as if it was yesterday. Some of the proud moments of my life are, when i proclaim that i did my early schooling in BCS.

    I will miss the celebrations as i’ll be in the USA, but will celebrate where ever i am. Wishing all those who’ll be there happiest ever celebrations.

    I have being trying to get through on the website you have mentioned, but there apears to be a glitch at either my, or your end.

    Anyway, I since I am unable to make it to Simla, for medical reasons, I would like to wish the Headmaster, Staff and all Cottonians, new and old, the very best during the coming celebrations.

    I will be with you all, particularly the class of 54, in mind and spirit thruought these days, wishing mightily that I was there.

    Though, regrettably, I only spent the final 3 years of my schooling at BCS, the experience and values learnt at school, I carry to this day. The comraderie, selflessness, team spirit, secular values and to ‘Overcome Evil with Good’, I imbibed at BCS, stood me in good stead in 35 years of active service in the Indian Army.
    Heartiest congratulation to all Cottonians, Staff and all Employees, both past & present on this landmark occassion of the impressive journey of ‘my school’, through the ages gone past and a glorious future ahead.

To respect our elders, behaviour modulation,and to face ones own problems is embeded in our souls even till today.The fighting sprit both in Acadamics as well in Games was inculcated in us even before we could relaise.
    The sweet memories of the Atheletic track,boxing ring,war memorial,Anderson stairs case,Irwin Hall, The holy trinity Chapel are still as fresh as ever, we all still feel them in our dreams every now and then. Yes! Truly the best days of my life….

    I was in BCS 1954-62. I thank my SCHOOL, for what ever I have achieved in life ,my profesion and values of life. TOWARDS THE TWILIGHT OF MY LIFE , ON THE 150 ANNIVERSERY OF OUR SCHOOL I WISH ALL COTTONIANS ALL THE BEST WISHES. Regards RLV.

  18. Brig Arun Kochhar (retd)

    I was in BCS during the years 1958-63 and then stepped out to join the Army. I recollect those years with fond memories; the bonding, discipline, pranks and punishments, Chipu’s tuck-shop, mugging for exams, competitive sports, socials, town-leaves, the clandestine gatherings at Council Rock with Govinder’s family cottage nearby, Partap Grewal leading the pack down ‘sudden death’ on the marathon runs, Usum Nimmanhaminda trying not to kick-box in the ring and Mr Tuli lisping in frustration at failing to teach me maths et al. They were the happiest years of our grooming and I owe my career path to the School.
    Those good-old-days were indeed the best and we owe it all to ‘those who’ve gone before and those who’ve yet to come’.
    I’m unable to join the joyous home-coming for the School Sesquicentennial and Curzon House Centenary celebrations and wish you all a memorable reunion. My heartiest congratulations to all who’ve toiled for the joyous celebration of these landmark events.

    At the onset of the Sesquicentennial Celebrations, more than ever, I reminisce some of the best years of my life, the years I spent at Bishop Cotton School.

    Throughout my association with BCS and every time we get together in these later years, I continually cherish this association. I know, as my fellow Cottonians do, that we are always ready to stand by each other through thick and thin.

    Let the Sesquicentennial honor our camaraderie and each celebration further fortify our strength. It makes me proud to be a part of this faction, a league extraordinare.

    I am proud to be a Cottonian. Today. Tomorrow. And Always.

    My best to my fellow OCs and their near and dear.

    BCS is where it all started – the life lessons that will perpetually accompany us on our quest for more, the friendships that will last a lifetime, the stories that will always keep us laughing, and a motto, “Overcome Evil with Good”, that will distinguish us as the most unique breed of boys that ever existed. Thanks for everything – we are truly obliged.

    Every great Institution has a hymn, an ode that wraps up the experience of the place into a phrase. “Overcome Evil with Good” is the motto we took with us from our alma mater to the world. These words will always hold good in any age, place or time. It is great that this august institution has been around for 150 years and still spreading the good word. All of us – it’s protégés and the world are forever in its debt.

    Best wishes from Vijay Khurana, Arun Bhumitra, Shelly Bhumitra, Ajay Bhumitra and Shiv Kapoor.

    “We sing of days now past and gone, we sing of days to be; A song to fire the mind of youth, and kindle memory”. We made a tryst with destiny when we joined BCS as students as far back as the 1960s, and the school has shaped our lives, our thinking, and built bonds that have endured the passage of time. We come back now to pay homage to that school, older and wiser, yet die hard Cottonians at heart.

    While the school song describes us as “all those giants of yesterday, who’ve had their glorious hour”, we believe that our glorious hour is now, as we participate in the BCS sesquicentennial celebrations. BCS has given us memories and friends to last a lifetime, and for that we will forever be indebted to the school.


    Mr. Vivek, Hats of to you…Common Friends its 150 Yrs and only 35 of us have responded…its a Big Big Day for us & Thanks to Mr. Vivek for giving us a chance to sing those proud & magical lines again. So send in your good wishes & shout tell the world who we are…i m sure none of us will forget, Lets do it once again : “WHERE EVER WE GO PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHOM WE ARE, SO WE SAY WE ARE THE COTTONIONS A MIGHTY MIGHTY COTTONIONS..& then.. YEEEAAAHHHHH…”, Yeppie..Woww…!

    I was part of the first batch of ISC students. I arrived as a 15 year old boy and left as a 17 year old man. The discipline, the loyalty, the respect for man, for culture, for God and for seniors has stood me well in my career. Ashwini Singh Virk became my best friend. Even though i travelled all over the world we stayed in touch. I tell many Canadians that I was one of the only catholic boys among 300 students and yet we went to the Chapel daily. We were multicultural, multiethnic way before the world.
    Congrats to every cottonian and may you continue to reach new heights.

    Best of Luck Vivek, congratulations to all OC’s worldwide. its a great contribution toward the school i must say, moment of Pride for all the OC’s as the school completes 150 years. Thanks OCA for keeping the memories fresh and providing an opportunity to all OC’s to be attached to school throughout life.
    Given an opportunity I will start my life again from junior school. walking in rows to enter the classroom, library towards the senior school…..sitting quietly in the library and reading Noddy and NG Mag waiting for Mr. Botteto to move out….playing with clay and constructing soccer courts of clay…

    moving to the middle school, expecting to be called big boys….still walking in rows, morning chapel, classes, waiting for tea break to have biscuits…LOVE THAT ALL.I still remember the fragrance of the bakery, those breads and biscuits…

    Finally stepping into the senior school…those fights with batch mates on smallest of issues…HEADY always calling us mischievous boys…that feeling of seniority and stepping on the fountain, some relief from short hair(BCS CUT). Love that all…. I wish I was back again……….Miss those days…

  58. Captain Samson Rathaur

    Congratulations to all Cottonians and Old Cottonians.I spent a short time in BCS but those were one of the best years of my life and it laid the foundation for my future. Thank you very much to all the dedicated teachers and staff, for all the hard work. It’s my prayer that our school may grow from strength to strength and continue to uphold our motto “Overcome Evil With Good”. God bless.

    Bishop Cotton School, Curzon House. The years I spent at BCS are some of the best years of my life.I have always drawn immense strength from the enviorn. Some of the best things with me, I owe it to my School, My passions, My love for Nature, My love for Art & Architecture, My love for Music, My love for my Tennis.

    I still remember clearly the amazing buscuits we used to get from the bakery, wow still miss them. I used to always love the classroom opposite the Headmaster’s Lodge. I still love it and have some deep and fond memories.

    I am sure and always will be that as we study at BCS we transform into people truly remarkable and amazing, in whatever fields of life we go we carry with us our life at school , what we have become and what became ingrained as us. I am sure that in time all of us add something beautiful to the world all around us as that is what we are destined to become as Cottonians.
