I have been waiting almost three years to get my hands on this. I had asked several friends passing through Delhi to try and pick it up. with no success.
The very day I arrived in Delhi, I went to the nearby store and asked if it was available.
First they said it was, but after a search, they said it wasn't.
They promised that they would order it for me. They did it straight away. They told me it would come immediately.
That was on the Monday the 30th of November. I have been going almost every day to check whether it had arrived.
Imagine my joy when I went in this evening and found it had come.
I quickly thumbed through it and found where my Kooler Talk Web Version was mentioned. On page 85.
Sadly, probably the only spelling mistake in the book is the name of the town where I live - it has been spelt as Ouli whereas it should be Oulu!
Not that it matters. Unfortunately the URL
has not been given, so many will not know how to reach the longest surviving version of Kooler Talk!
The book "St. Stephen's College : A History" was written by Ashok (Tony) Jaitly. Tony was three years ahead of me in school in Mumbai and also the same in college. He was a great sportsman, much like his brother, Ravi. He is also a wonderful friend as are all the Jaitly family.
As I went through this book, I found it very readable.
I think I am going to enjoy my flight to London from Mumbai on Sunday night as I get through this book. It will provide me much material for the blog as I recall many of the incidents recounted therein!
Unfortunately, things are getting worse as far as the College is concerned.
Such immature childishness is hard to understand. It was reported in today's newspaper that the Bishop has now filed a show cause notice against the College Chaplain for being outside his house with some protesters.
Does it not as if he is behaving like the Pharisees and Sadducee's when the went after Jesus Christ?
