LION
posted 28 February 2017

If you haven't seen the movie, Lion, yet; we highly recommend it. It's a true story about a lost 5-year-old Indian boy, Saroo Brierley -- his life and incredible odyssey through India and Australia. Twenty-five years later, with the help of Google Earth, he finds his home in India and returns to see his family again.

The movie has some wonderful photography of India that you will enjoy; and the little boy who plays 5-year-old Saroo is adorable and is an amazing actor for his young age.

Photos: Sunny Pawar (left) and Dev Patel play Saroo Brierley.

AES HS MUN DELEGATION TOOK THIMUN QATAR BY STORM
posted 3 February 2017

Special recognition is due to the High School MUN traveling team for their inspiring participation in the recent THIMUN Qatar Conference. Shreyas Rajesh was awarded a coveted role of Judge on the International Court of Justice, one
of ten students of the roughly 2000 present. All eight country delegates (Kailash, Avi, Vir, Dylan, India, Abhik, Kabir, & Neil) were chosen to “main submit” resolutions in their committees of over one hundred delegates. Only six to eight delegates in each committee are given the honor to come to podium, read their resolution, give a speech, and defend their position to posed questions. Seven of the eight resolutions passed overwhelmingly. All students are to be congratulated for representing AES with poise and skill.

WELCOME BACK
posted 18 January 2017

Susan Vogelsang (Class of 1968) reached out to us and said she lives outside Washington, D.C. with her husband and enjoys spending time with her three daughters and three granddaughters, from Baltimore to Boston to Oregon. After graduate school at Berkeley, she traveled to 35 countries working in international development and stability operations. She is still in the work mode, taking breaks to see old friends and new places. She is not currently on Facebook but is thinking about joining.


MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY
posted 16 January 2017

Although today is Martin Luther King, Jr Day, we thought it would also be fun to reflect back to 1969 when his wife, Coretta Scott King, visited Delhi to accept the Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award on behalf of her husband. The AIS chorus sang
"We Shall Overcome" at the ceremony. On the right side is a photo of Mrs. King sitting in-between US Ambassador Chester Bowles and his wife.










A MIGHTY GIRL
posted 12 January 2017

Dear Alumni Friends,
After your wonderful Facebook post on
"Shanti Devi, India's
Only Female Truck Mechanic
" (originally posted 4 January 2017),
I shared your story with
"A Mighty Girl" Facebook page last Wednesday. Indeed, the stories were adjacent to each other on Facebook! And as it would turn out, they posted a story on this too. I highly recommend you follow "A Mighty Girl" Facebook page if you don't already. As a father of two girls,
I find it a useful resource; and I could readily see a link to our alumni community, likewise, encouraging our future mighty girls now at AIS/AES. Be well and all the best for 2017.
- Andrew Clugston (AES Class of 1997)

LAGOON PARIAH
posted 5 January 2017

My dear AIS Alma Mata-hurrays:
An Orchestra naiF new-year bonus track!

Y'all - yes, someone broke our website (Orchestra naïF)
and didn't put it back together...
But Vah! Jeff Campbell (Class of 1973), often with his son, Cameron, and I have had another super-duper productive year. Several albums' worth.
Here's a wee sample titled Lagoon Pariah (mp3) a tune, despite its sobriety, is suitable for dancing in the extreme. From Lagos, Nigeria...down to the Mama Ganga...in the Irrawaddy and in the Summerbundio, we are all Lagoon Pariahs!
Until we take the time to scrape together a new website, social media outlet and tea-stall, check in periodically at our YouTube channel. There are some studio rushes from July in there, as well as a catalog of past triumphs, close shaves, miraculous saves and overlooked gems.
On behalf of Jhaffur, Kamran and Orchestra naïF, I remain determined to remain,
Yours, Joel Baird (Class of 1973)

GET-TOGETHER IN CALIFORNIA
posted 31 December 2016

From Jim Newberry, 29 December 2016:

Bill Stollberg, on the left, and I - AIS classmates from the Class of 1970 - got together tonight to talk story about new and old things. We did the math and have known each other for half a century. We are amazed at how much we still have
in common, including both our mothers are at University Retirement Center at Davis. This photo was taken at Tomi Sushi and Seafood in Union City, California. Highly recommended!
