Kinny Chopra Kapur firstname.lastname@example.org
Having a bit of reflective moment...wrote this email to Mary Williamson and then thought I would search under Marie-Louise Kreuger who was my best friend at school and who I would love to speak to again... Read more from Kinny.
Seiichi Sugiyama email@example.com
I just received an e-mail from Magnus Kreuger after receiving your e-mail.
It was almost like Miracle!You are right. The days of India, is something like the roots of what, and where I am.
There are so many things I still remember, while easy to forget other daily things nowadays.

Rob Creedon RobertCreedon@comcast.net
Wow, what a great surprise to hear from Seiichi Sugiyama -- and what a coincidence. I just finished taking a class on Chinese Grand Strategy. In my class of eleven was a gentleman from Japan! Upon meeting him, I immediately thought of Seiichi and wondered where life had taken him after our days in India -- and then his email was forwarded to me!

Bruce Dalcher firstname.lastname@example.org
Eight years in India did a splendid job of leaving me, like so many others, remarkably unprepared for a return to the States. I had one year (9th grade) at a DC public school, a real hellhole where I literally could not understand what many of the students were saying. Then things got a little better: my sister Sara ('73) and I switched to Walt Whitman HS in Bethesda. Read more from Bruce.
Malcolm Garg email@example.com
Since graduating from AES in '75 I have met and kept up with many AIS/AES'ers over the years, too many to name - fact is, we've always been (especially initially), a lost flock, and as the saying goes - birds of feather stick together! I left India and came to the US in 1976 to ostensibly go to school - which I did attempt on and off for many years. Read more from Malcolm.
Veronica Choi Krath firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some photographs of my family for the website. The first one is of me and my husband Mike (who I met at the American school in Egypt right after I left India) and our six children (yes, SIX) at our oldest son's wedding last June. The second is of Mike and me (together, we equal a century). Read more, and see the photos, from Veronica.
Sunaina Suneja email@example.com
It wasn’t a very eventful beginning but I’m not at all unhappy to live through boring times. I’m beginning to enjoy the placidity that they bring with them. I spent March preparing for another trip to the US, and it was only when I was aboard the flight on my way, that I realized that I was returning after just 9 months, the first time that’s happened to me.

Majd Patou Fathallah firstname.lastname@example.org

June (Haviland) Donovan email@example.com
I only discovered this wonderful website this week and have just been enjoying reading through all the information and seeing all the pictures. I attended AIS from 1966 through 1970, when I left with my family for Quito, Ecuador for two years and then on to Bangkok, Thailand, where I graduated in 1975.
I do not even know how to begin "filling in" the past 30 years. I was married for 11 years and am now "single but happily attached." I live in Bristow, Virginia and own a second home in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, where I escape the busy ways of Northern Virginia. Read more from June.

Recently browsing in that old data storage mechanism, the library, I came
across a book on the architecture of Joseph Stein. Stein, among other
extraordinary feats as you may know, designed and saw built the amazing
structure and grounds of what we enjoyed as the American International
School (later the American Embassy School). Ever the modern age swami, I
raced for my digital camera and took a few 'snaps' of the drawings and
photos in the book so as to share the experience of these memories with

Diane Cowper RipCow@bellsouth.net
Hi. I finally got my PhD from the University of Florida last December and couldn’t have done it without the support of my Delhi friends – thanks! The Cowper clan is well and happy. Mom and Dad are on the West Coast in Santa Cruz, enjoying retirement (I think a bit too much…), Steve and wife Pam have been transferred to Tanzania. Sister Sandi is well and the proud grandmother of a beautiful little girl, Isabelle Sandra, who the whole family adores. Life is short, the journey long, hurry…. All the best, Diane

I really enjoy browsing the AIS/AES website for news on friends, past and present. Living and working in Berkeley California I have been able to keep in touch with many friends for my AES and Woodstock days. Class of 76, now such a long time ago, continues to touch my life. Read more
Sandy Rosanbalm Topole firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi everyone! I graduated from high school with the class of 1976 in Bossier City, Louisiana. I pursued my interest in horses and became a cowgirl. I married and had a son, Dusty. Fifteen years later I was more than ready to leave that marriage behind me. I subsequently met (or maybe I should say was rescued by) a great guy, Scott, and moved out west to Phoenix, AZ. We were married after a couple of years and decided to have children together. We are now the proud parents of Rachael, who is almost 7, and Christopher who is 3 1/2. They keep me going...all the time!!!! They have become my full time 24/7 job. We moved from Phoenix to Orange Park, Florida about 4 years ago. The hurricanes have been very exciting but it is pretty here. I just recently saw the AIS website. I had no idea it was going to be so much fun to get in touch with "old" friends from back in the early 70's. Thanks to everyone for the opportunity to share our memories!

I've been in Sarasota FL since 1988 except for a couple of years out in San
Francisco and various trips to Europe. Living in a hippie mansion on
Sarasota Bay, http://g.co/maps/w6ghf - that's us with the two beach cats and
a run down ooooold house nestled amongst the megamansions. The picture is
of myself and my lovely daughter, an up and coming opera singer in Boston.
Attended New College here in Sarasota and loved it - haven't seen anyone
from Delhi in years except occasionally in dreams. I do web consulting and
programming, and a couple of times a month I shoot wedding pictures. Lots
of pictures from the last ten years up at http://cadanoche.com/gallery . If
anyone is in the neighborhood, please do stop in and see us - might even be
an extra room with a view. ;)

I have been thinking a lot about the old school lately especially since I have just returned from a visit there with my wife, Beth and my two daughters, Jane (8) and Isabel (6).

The school is almost unrecognizable from the old days; all of the high school teachers from my era are no longer at the school." Read more from Sanjeev.

After a great year at AES back in 1980-81, I returned to Denmark to finish my High School and College, got my IT education and traveled quite a lot in Africa (since my parents moved to Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania after India).

So only the dog belongs to both of us. Here in Denmark I now have my own small IT company targeting the Telecom industry (Cable TV mainly) and I have a few internet services targeting the Airline industry (Cosmic Radiation) and Health Care (intensive care at hospitals) - Pretty nerdy - but ok.
