St. Joseph’s Old Boys TOOK A Walk Down Memory Lane In Association With The Telegraph

How about going down memory lane bhangra style? St. Joseph’s College Old Boys’ Association marked their annual reunion night with Dil Bole Hadippa on January 19, in association with The Telegraph, complete with Punjabi music and food. A bonfire and lots of catching up with old friends made for a perfect evening.

The college grounds crackled with excitement as Josephytes exchanged bearhugs, reminisced about old pranks and went around the school recollecting where they had played the last prank and on whom.

“I remember the many tricks to cheat during class tests. We used to cheat despite being well-prepared just to get the thrill of breaking the rules,” laughed businessman Jafar Moochhala, batch of 1958.

And then there was Brother Mac, a former principal of the school who has been associated with it since 1961. “I remember dozing off in my office after work and waking up early morning only when the sweeper used to come,” laughed Brendan MacCarthaigh aka Brother Mac as he is more fondly known.

Living up to the theme and the reunion spirit, the night was high on popular Punjabi numbers which were churned out by DJ Akash while bhangra and gidda ruled the dance floor. The bonfire in the middle of the lawn kept the old boys warm as they took time out to dig into lip-smacking starters and dinner.

The evening also saw former students donate for a fellow Josephyte, Robin Dixit (batch of 1996), whose wife (Andrea) is suffering from leukaemia. About Rs 50,000 was raised through the event.
