Before & After

I found a couple of pictures and I thought I'd share them with you guys. Well, this one is titled Before & After, not because it's an example of radical slimming/weight loss or amazingly rapid hair restoration, but because it's a couple of pictures with about 10 years between them. Check them out.


Picture 1 finds, from left to right, Messrs. Shyam Nair, Osmond Solomon, and Rohin Kallat all "dressed up" for Kodaikanal International School "Field Day"...our yearly track and field sports event. Now, I don't quite know what Shyam is up to, but he left school in the 8th grade, and I saw him once, briefly, a couple of years later. Oz left KIS after the eighth grade, and for about four years we were never in touch. But then I caught up with him in Bangalore and, as they say, the rest is history. Oh, this is waaaaay back in the 3rd Grade. And another interesting tidbit is the fact that this picture was taken by Anne, Ozzy's sister. Thanks Anne. Anne and Vishal's daughter, Avisha, just completed her first birthday on the 26th of November. She's really cute, and it was a pleasure watching her grow up in the little time that I got to see it happen. And now, let's move on to "What Happened Next?"


Picture 2, finds us arranged in the same order, except for the fact that Shyam has been replaced by Mr. Nithin Jayanth. It's his Opel Astra that we're leaning on, by the way. As you can see, things have changed...be sure to notice the cigarette in my hand. This picture was taken about 2-3 months after I graduated from KIS. Didn't know what we were going to do with our lives, so we decided to go behind Bangalore Airport, to some paddy field, and someone happened to have a camera. Oz, I think, had the camera. Well, now that's what you call a helluva long time, eh?
