Homecoming 25 Years, St. Joseph's, North Point, Darjeeling 5
By Manuwant Choudhary
Standing just next to the speaker listening to Bob Marley's Get Up, Stand Up....Don't Give Up The Fight....with hundreds of young boys was literally a `Blast' !
But for us returning to school after 25 years the Bob Marley lyrics carried more meaning.
25 years of struggle on a daily basis is very, very different from the organised, protected life we all led at North Point.
I remember Mr. Maurice Banerjee, our very respectable physics teacher (who retired in 1986, we were the last batch he taught), warning us of how tough life is in the plains when you have to take a crowded bus or train in 45 degrees C.
Life is tougher than that...
Enjoy the song...and Never Give Up The Fight.....
Never Give Up The Fight....
