5. I did my entire schooling from St.Joseph’s Convent School in Bhopal

It was 14 years of glorious fun! My mum and my mausi(Mum’s sister) also did their schooling from there so I was often taught by teachers who had taught my Mum also! Incidentally, Jaya Bahaduri (now Jaya Bachhan) is also from my school and was School Captain in her day.

  1. I was very fat when I was a baby though I became thin like a skeleton later. I remember that I had so many funny imaginations which I believed to be true at that time. I used to watch ads in TV and one which attracted me is Vicks Goli ad. I asked my father to buy one and come when he came from office. When he brought it I opened the packet and was searching for the spider like khich khich which I have seen in the ads. Then only my father understood that it was for that cartoon I had asked him to buy vicks ki goli!

  2. OMG… I’m too a Josephite…my schooling too frm St.Joseph’s convent School, Jal.. πŸ˜‰

    Also what a coincidence…I played the duck with similar clothes for Old McDonald in my nurser class too…First person I know now who played the part apart from me….loved the post

  6. haha, great post Ankita….I played “the blackbird” in “Sing a song of sixpence” , the blackbird who picks at the maids nose..I remember buying a black full sleeve shirt and a black long skirt for it and then the music teacher had made a beak of cardboard to put on my head…ha-ha!!! was hilarious…Its not a very popular rhyme here here in India, and I don’t even know too many kids who know that one….but thanks to my music teacher, she taught us the most unpopular of rhymes with as much ease as she taught Gurbani and shabad…..loved her so much…

    and no, I never cried when going to school and I too spent all of my 13 yrs, nur +12 in one school….I think its a great feeling when you kind of grow up in one place …you get so many memories from there….
