It was a glorious day of recognising faces and recalling names. Some of us were meeting each other after a good 25 years. Loud exclamations and gasps of joy of finding the childhood buddy rent the air at Hotel Uday Samudra, Kovalam. One could only see handshakes and hugs.
This was in the runup to Saturday's Old Boys' Day of Sainik School, Kazhakootam, Kerala. It's 25 years since we passed out of the portals of this great institution. And we are organising this 38th alumni meet. Imagine the first meet was in 1969, no networking sites then; just inland letters and postcards. Such is the bonding my school provides.
