“I had brought my son to this school (St.Paul’s) holding his hand and today after 40 long years, he holds my hand and gets me to his school for this reunion. I have no words which would express my feelings.”
These were the words said by a father aged 70+ to his 40+ son on the school grounds of St.Pauls.
More than 1000 Paulites (students passed from the school) had gathered for the reunion. Right from the 1947 batch to the latest 2010 batch all had their presence.
Tony Machado who had passed out of school in 1947 had come to this school after 60 long years and he said there is nothing like coming back to school.
The now parents showed their spouses and kids the classroom they studied and what all they did when in school.
A kid told this blog that it was nice to hear that even my dad was naughty in school and even he used to climb trees and eat tamarinds.
People had come in from various parts of the globe just to attend this reunion and they said they relived and will cherish each and every moment spent.
Old friends met after decades and all tried to relive those nostalgic moments by visiting their classes and meeting their teachers.
A gala entertainment function was held in the evening in which Paulites who have scaled great heights were also honored which included Vent Cuthino Ex-VC Gulburga university, Dr.Arun Bali, Dr.Mahadev Dixit Cardiologist, MLA Feroz Sait, Fr.Peter Machado. A souvenir was released on the occasion.
