Amongst all the songs that we sang in SPV ( i was in the choir ) i liked
the following the most:
1. Yeh wakt na thahra hai , yeh wakt na thahrega ,
Yun hi yeh guzar jayega , ghabrana kaisa.
2. Chod ped ki chhaon musafir
I can't remember the other good ones..but yes one thing i have not been
able to get over is the song " Ek chatur naar kar ke shringar " sung by
Kishore bhai and Shani bhai.
My most unforgettable experience had been with the Assembly which was
conducted in Hindi. Actually before this i had been to an Anglo-Indian
School( The Frank Anthony Public School ) where even the song " Hum honge
kaamyab " was sung as " We shall overcome "...so it was a pleasant
However i faced a big cultural shock when i saw everybody addressing
their teachers as Bhai and Ben. I came from a school where we would refer
to our teachers as Sirs and M'ams. Initially i thought i would never be
able to get into this , but finally did " What the Romans did " ( since i
was in Rome!!!!)
Another change was the way we greeted our teachers ... rotating the hand
in the air....we were used to the Goodmornings and Good afternoons. In
fact there was a joke amongst my friends from my previous school
regarding this...They thought that it was as good as a teacher asking the
students if they had grey matter and the student would signal this way
The Elections for the GS was another change i found in SPV. In fact i
liked it a lot. It was like strengthening the democracy at the grass
root level. The most amazing thing was that SPV was the only school
which recognized the fact that all responsibilities should be entrusted
to the 11ths and 12ths( The Board Class ) could concentrate more on
More i'll write later.
I hope i will see my name on the SPV Directory soon.
