I am forwarding the individual photographs for the Class of 1962 extracted from a group photograph taken in 1961. There is no official or formal picture for this group that should have been taken in 1962 as part of the usual year end photographic session. Some individual photographs have been extracted from other group pictures taken in 1962 e.g. Spartan Club members or the Prefects for 1962, for reasons of quality and clarity.
From among them the only person who is no longer with us is Shivraj Singh who died of an anaphylactic shock at a doctor’s clinic in 1963. No details are available. I recall him to be an intelligent person, good at hockey, had a decided stammer and a very even temper. He was in Lefroy House.
I do not have photographs for Vinod Chhabra, Himmat Singh and Simranjit Singh Mann who also joined this class in their final year. Those additions will be made as soon as we can lay our hands on appropriate photographs. Any assistance in that respect will be greatly appreciated from any one endorsed on this mailing list.
Usum who figures in this collection subsequently joined the Class of 1963. Dhishnu’s full and complete name is required / requested
Logically we should have such a profile for each year with a description about each one of them written after 25 and 50 years respectively. Would offer a great collection and this will ensure that each one is remembered. Great for posterity.
I have just received a prompt input from Sukanya, Usum’s wife. It is reproduced below:
“If I am not mistaken, Dhishnu supposed to be a guy from Thailand, right?
His name should be Tisanu Thien-ngern. His father used to be Bangkok Governor for a long time. Usum always met
him, a lanky and very funny guy. I knew where he used to live but lost touch of him somewhat.
That is our Dhishnu alright. I am attaching his photograph again so that Anil can make suitable changes.
This is actually a very useful input and have requested Sukanya to indicate further details about him, if available. It would be wonderful to meet with him again and Deepak Lamba as was the Curzon gang great friends with him.
Thanks, again, Sukanya
Sukanya is right, Tisanu Thien-ngern’s Dad was a long-time Gov of Bangkok. I remember that name from my time at the Bangkok Post newspaper.
What about the whereabouts of Prayudh, and the Assawamatiyanont brothers — Surachai and Surawat? Kirit Shah is still in Bangkok, last I heard of him.
Adisakdi Thaviyonchai also is doing well with his tractor business in Bangkok
Joe Joshi 1 (R 54 to 63)
Joe’s excellent inputs are appreciated with thanks
Adisak was few years junior to us and in Rivaz. I think SM and Vinod may know more about him
Many thanks for your prompt reply Vijay. I know Adisak’s home address in Rong Muang Soi 4 Bangkok, and his Thavorn Tractor business address. Kirit Shah used to live in Suriwongse Road, BKK.
