Down Memory Lane
St. Mary's Convent Mhow, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.
The boys of Class II with their class teacher Mrs. Dubey.
I am third from right in the second row. I had come on transfer from Mount St. Mary's Delhi Cantt where I had studied Class I and four months of Class II. But the sessions in Delhi used to be from January to December. And in Mhow they were from July to April. I have been told that boys were admitted to St. Mary's till the early eighties. They studied here till Class III. Those senior to me tell me that there was a time when boys studied here till Class VII.
My younger brothers have also studied in the same school. I studied here for two sessions. Class II (1968-69) and Class III (1969-70). For Class IV the boys shifted to Rajeshwar Vidyalaya (Sacred Hearts Convent). And I studied there for two sessions - Class IV (1970-71) and Class V (1971-72). We left Mhow after that as my father was transferred to Alwar (Rajasthan) and I shifted to Kendriya Vidyalaya (Central School) Alwar.
