Mr Sasim DasGupta / BCS Memorabilia – Centenary Dinner Menu Card 1959

Mr. Sasim DasGupta was the Art Teacher at BCS. Here is an email from him which should bring back many fond memories for many OCs and BCS Teachers; and hopefully will be of interest to those who were at BCS in the later years as well!

Here is a copy of the menu card of the Centenary dinner which took place at BCS on June 7th, 1959.

I was delighted to design the card but I was terribly disappointed when I saw the printed result.

Neither the colour nor the resolution was anything like the original.  What added more to my annoyance was when I found out that the original design was also lost, either in transit or in the printing press.   However,  it was too late for any action….by then, the dinner was almost on the table and so was the menu card.

Fond memories,

Sasim DasGupta

    The Kalka- Simla “Toy Train ” documentary is excellent and does touch an O C ‘s heart string !
    Mr Sasim Dasgupta it brings back old memories of the Art Class with you encouraging boys
    to draw and paint. I did learn a lot from you. Remember ! There is so much to talk about your wonderful days at BCS.
    Wish you were at Shimla at BCS for the 150 years grand Celebrations.
