I received a call at 2PM today and person on the other side said, “Hi Sai, I am Hanumanth Rao; I am your class mate from Wesley. We met last in 1982 during 10th grade”. I replied, “Hey Hanumanth Rao, how are you doing”, while parallel processing in my mind, my memories from 1982. I could not recollect him, thanks to my “Gajini” style memory. He said, few of class mates from school are meeting up for an informal catch-up at Bowenpalli around 6PM. I saved his number on my cell, and quickly went to Whatsapp and pulled his name again, and I could see his profile pic. I could remember him immediately, as he hasn’t changed much.
I went to a private roof-top place near Bar One in Bowenpally at 6PM as pledged. About 30 folks started trickling to the venue by 7PM. I could only recognise 10 folks (as I met these 10 folks couple of times during last 10 to 20 years). It was a struggle but fun trying to attach face to the name for remaining 20. About 15 folks recognised me, and told me my own stories form high school, which I do not even remember now. I am glad, I could make it to the event, and reconnect with old friends and memories Surprisingly, I am the only one into IT from this gang 🙂
Here are few pics and video clip from the event.
