Amy Roche is in her late 80s, but still remembers her teenage years, when she was taught by my father’s brother, the late Belle Bhavani Rao in Mangalore.
Even now she is all praise for his teaching standards and his mathematical skills. After marriage Amy came to Bombay and lived in Anand Nagar at Santa Cruz and brought her two children, Philomena and Nelson Lewis to the St Anthony’s high school, where she met my mom.
Philomena and Sheila, my sister became friends and Nelson and I were close chums. But he migrated and is now settled in the US. We met for the first time in 50 years at their Bandra home today and discussed our past.
