THE NEW TAGORE ROOM
posted 25 May 2019
From AES Director, Jim Laney, Jr.

On Weds. May 22, we officially opened the Tagore Room in our MS/HS Library. The room contains our Indian Studies non-fiction collection and has been renamed in honor of the Indian Nobel Laureate for Literature (1913), Rabindranath Tagore.
Peggy Sood, long term AES teacher and administrator, shared her own passion for Tagores poetry with us,
and students and staff performed the Indian national anthem, com-
posed by Tagore in 1911. The quote on the wall of the Tagore Room
is perfect for the AES community...

I slept and dreamt that life was joy,
I awoke and saw that life was service,
I acted and behold, service was joy.

Attributed to Rabindranath Tagore

ORCHESTRA NAIF
posted 16 May 2019

Namaste Alumni!
Almost all of my free time is spent playing music, and much of it long-distance with Jeffrey Campbell, also Class of '73. We've composed hun-
dreds of numbers in dozens of hybrid genres.
Jeff is in Rome now (our most recent live session took place there last sum-
mer); and I'm in Burlington, Vermont. We ship sound files back and forth un-
til they sound right and then we move on, staying fresh.
Every several weeks or so we update our SoundCloud channel - Orchestra naF - where folks can stream the tunes for free.
Our day jobs leave us little spare time for further promotion (witness the stale Facebook page). This will likely change in the next few years; we're on the lookout for folks with the right skills and a love of ever-emerging music. For the record: We've been playing together, and recording, since fifth grade: 1965!
Cheers and open ears,
Joel Baird (AIS Class of 1973)

NEW BOARD DIRECTOR
posted 14 May 2019

Please welcome Rabi Rajkarnikar (AES Class of 1985) as our newest board Director! Rabi lives
in Nepal and is our second member who lives outside the United States. He is excited to help
us plan our all-school 2021 Reunion and afterwards, is anxious to be our rep to host overseas reunions for AIS/AES alumni--parti-
cularly for those who live in the areas of Nepal, India, Bhutan, Bangaldesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Rabi has previous experience
on several boards and will be an asset to ours. He has a son who
will be attending school in New York this fall, and Rabi considers it
very doable in 2021 to physically attend our reunion then.
Welcome aboard, Rabi!
