Rivaz 1962
Photo provided by Himmat Singh. Text by Vijay Khurana:

Himmat Singh sent three photographs of Rivaz House for the years 1953, 1961, and 1962. 
Two observations. With Mr Farhat Paul as Rivaz House Master, all the boys had a handkerchief in their top left coat pockets (see the photographs). He loved these little touches and the expression, “You Fat Cow!!” He bellowed these words and stretched them over a good ten seconds for the impact that he wanted to deliver depending on his mood. His other talents were exceptional but he left in me an enduring interest in history with details of Babur that the Baburnama never recorded !! He embellished every class with fascinating details that made all the Mughal emperors come alive !! He had several other attributes but his large garnet ring, his penmanship, and his well endowed behind I do remember. There was more, much more, to this flamboyant man but I leave that to your imagination.
I see faces and remember with affection Mohan (M.M.) Sachdev, Ashok Dina Nath, Huppy Grewal, the Gideon brothers, Preharan Singh, Motwani, my dear friend Girish Ghai, the body builder who frequented my house in Bombay on so many occasions. His parents (address 69, Warden Road) were always warm and hospitable. There are others who revive memories aplenty.

    Dear Joshi Sir! 😂😂
    Mr Farhat Paul …. Shikari with massive embellishments who killed crocs tigers and had the best hand writing in the world.!! Either he served you basin ladoos from Chipu’s if you sang in unison “ Good Morning Sir” or if he was in a foul mood lambasted you about sending you to exile in his hometown Jagadri…
    Regardless we should consider him a
    L E G E N D too!
