We are still looking to contact Anil Mendiratta – if anyone knows of him please email editor@oldcottonians.org THANKS!


Email from Mr. Ronald Goss to Sukhdev Singh Rai:

Hello Sukhdev:

Mrs. Goss and I feel greatly honoured that you still remember us and have been so kind as to invite us to your Golden Jubilee celebrations.  Believe me, there is no place I would rather be, but distance is an insurmountable obstacle for a “buddha” like me who will be turning 90 in another few weeks (3rd May).  Mrs. Goss is throwing a party in our condo to celebrate the occasion , and, O,  how I wish all you OCs could be there to make our joy complete.

Mrs. Goss and I wish you every success as you proceed with plans for your Golden Jubilee.  Kindly convey our very best wishes to all present.  I am sure it will be a grand affair.

I am not very good at it, but I will try to attach a few recent pictures taken at our 60th wedding anniversary on 7 Jan, 2018.  I am sorry I don’t have the facility of sending therm to you on your Whatsapp.

Thank you again.  So wonderful hearing from you.  With all good wishes,

Ronald Goss

(BCS 1956-64)
