I had the pleasure of meeting fellow classmate, Musarrat Shomee Qureshi, today after 26 years. One simply started where one left off…and now with a shared nostalgia of banyan trees, Delhi traffic, a river of great childhood stories, and a friendship forged in common global experiences.

Dear Friends and Fellow AES Alumni,

It is with great regret that I write this little note to let you know that Nicolas Broun, a 2008 AES high school graduate, passed away Monday morning in his home in France. I'll always remember Nicolas as a friend and fellow European, someone who loved theater, being active and outdoors, who was always ready to lend an ear when you had a story to share or were in need of some advice and support.

The funeral will likely be held next Monday or Tuesday, though details have not yet been finalized. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to his sister Nathalie if you'd like to pass a message directly to Nicolas' family.

Warmest regards, Geoffroy Bablon, Class of 2007

Class of 1962 Alumni

As a member of the original graduating class of 1962, (and lucky enough to have weathered 52 more years of the storms of life since then), I feel compelled to pen a report on some of the continued escapades and activities of the infamous group of AIS Alums who have dubbed themselves the "Delhi Wallas".

This will be the fourth (4th) in a Series which we affectionately call the "DELHI WALLA CHRONICLES." Read more from Jeff.

2014 AIS/AES Picnic
It was another awesome picnic hosted by Anne Beattie Kerr (Class of 1967) and her husband, Tim! There were new attendees, several Indian dishes (as well as hamburgers and sausages), lots of side dishes and desserts, and perfect weather! We had the best time!! Thank you, Anne and Tim, for always hosting the annual picnics.

On the weekend of September 12-14, a dedicated gathering of AIS/AES'ers from the Class of '76 traveled to the Georgia mountain retreat and vineyard of classmate Eric Seifarth. Crane Creek Vineyards served as an idyllic setting for a reunion of Delhi wallas, some of whom had not seen each other since 8th grade. See photos and read more about the reunion from Bill Childs.

Dear Family and Friends,

My husband, best friend, and companion for 64 years passed away on August 26, 2014, in Chandigarh. After a long illness that was mercifully painless his passing was peaceful as our four children and I gathered at his bedside and saw him through his final, gentle breaths. He was 93.

Our retirement days were brightened by happy memories of all of you and of the great times we shared together. I am about to leave the country that has been "home" to me since 1950, and that opened its arms to me, a "stranger". I shall soon find saying good-bye difficult indeed to so many lasting relationships as I prepare to leave before month's end. Yet, when one door closes, another opens as I return to where I came from. I go forth to what future remains to me in California where my journey began with curiosity and a sense of adventure. And I shall enjoy resuming relationships at close quarters that for many decades survived the daunting distance of 10 thousand miles.

Love to you all, each and every one, -Jacquelin Singh

Just a short note to let you know that I am still alive and kicking in sunny SoCal. Can’t make the picnic, but might be able to get back for the next reunion. This has been the surgery year from hell with a hip and a total knee replacement, but the surgeon promises that I can be back on the softball field in the beginning of 2015. Good news!

I have attached a recent photo for anyone that might want to know what I am up to. Still drinking my fair share of wines!
