Rare pics of Sangham at Rojo’s place.

Does anybody know what happened to Lineman?

Last month we celebrated the Return of Dijiraj. Jam session at Biju’s. TV was there. Jose phoned in. Bobby was away (or as the famous song goes, kappalil aanu ku**a).

The jam almost didn’t happen. Unable to locate Biju’s house, Diji was actually rushing back home when I saw him in Panampilly Nagar. And then I knew, though I had not met him in a decade, he has not changed a bit. Good old Japan, the man in a big hurry – pouva, pouva, pouva.

Before he became Japan, he was Idi Rajappan, the nemesis of Onakka and other school bus kids. He was also the Commando fan, the ‘fastest man’ and a pioneer of hard tackle football. Actually football’s gain was boxing’s loss. The windows of MSc Chemistry lab in Maharaja’s (and many of us) can vouch for the power of his punches.

During the pre-degree days, I was a permanent fixture on his BSA SLR. We discovered Eloor together, filled in our engineering applications together – then I went to Calicut, he went to Kothamangalam…and the rest…is history.

Welcome back, Diji.

Sometimes, when i get this urge to blog, but my brain doesn’t share my enthusiasm, i hit people with my old photo album. Tonight is one of those nights.

On display are my Class III and Class IV pics. I had posted my Class I pic earlier. In fact, i had wanted to post all my St. Teresa’s pics together, but i could not locate the Class II pic, so i posted the Class I pic, went searching for the Class II pic, but…now you know.

From Ammankovil Road Archives…

I was in Class I D.
I D-Vandi – that used to be a major gag in those days.
I am in the last row, second from right. The first guy in the row is Praveen PP (Rajagiri ’81). Peter Milton Lopez and Paulose are next to him. In the 4th row, Benny George (Jos Brothers) is 3rd from left and Sreekumar (REC ’87), 8th. The last three guys in the row are Anand, Mahesh (Rajagiri ’81) and the famous Varghese G. Paul.

In the 3rd row, Shanthi is 2nd from left. Roshini is extreme left on row 2 (daughter of Captain Thomas, used to live in Karakkamuri). Seated on the ground, extreme right is Nisha Mukundan (daughter of Dr. Mukundan). The girl next to her is Sweety, who gave me chicken pox when we were in class IV.
