A Reunion at Rani’s


Chandrakant arranged this lovely get together. There were lots of handshakes and hugs, old faces in new clothing.


Some of us had not seen each other since we since we said goodbye to our school in Thika. In amongst the joy and laughter, we had lovely food.


For this occasion, Rasik had been asked to write a poem to commemorate our time together at the high school from 1963 to 1966. And the appreciation was regal as he read out the poem. People were appreciative of long-lost memories it brought back.


This reunion had attracted almost 50 ex-students and their partners. Talk was that we should meet more often and perhaps start a charity to raise funds to support our old school.

When did it all start?


A group of ex-students who had kept in touch with each other over the years decided to meet. Bachittar extended an invitation to all he knew and a meeting was arranged at his house. Here ideas were exchanged. Future reunions planned. Chandrakant volunteered to arrange a reunion in 2013 and also to start a fund. He also began the process of gathering names and Email addresses from the people who were there and the ball started to roll.

Our aim is to deliver, through fund-raising activities, the facilities the students schooling in our former educational home require for a good education.
