Deniz Toksoz Exley (AIS Class of 1974) and her son, Andrew Derya, visited
AES the first week in January. Here are three photos of Deniz and Simonia
(Assistant to the Communications Director) around the campus. The
fourth photo is with Sunaina Suneja (AES Class of 1975) taken in Hauz Khas.
(Please note the ancient temples in the upper left - this was a temple complex
now turned into a serene and beautiful park in Hauz Khas, Delhi.)

After a few days in New Delhi, Deniz and her son went onto Jaipur, Amber Fort,
and Udaipur City Palace on Lake Pichola. “Had a fabulous time!”

From Michael White (AES Class of 1980)

Hello Everyone – It is kind of surreal writing a note
about my experience at The American Embassy School. However, when I attended in the late 1970s, it was the American International School. I have such fond mem-
ories of my experience which have shaped my life in
such positive ways. My entire world view was impact-
ed by the positive impact of going to school with stu-
dents from so many nations. My imagination was constantly sparked with hearing stories from kids that
lived in every corner of the globe. More importantly, it
gave me so many unique perspectives on how we all fit together and can make
our world a better place. Read more from Michael White.

We didn't let Winter Storm Jayden keep us from honoring AES Director, Jim
! It was a wonderful evening of friendship, camaraderie, sharing stories
and delicious Indian food. Jim shared photos of AES on the TV screen while we
were eating and gifted everyone with an AES magnet and an India/AES Friend-
ship Flag pin. Thank you, Jim! And thanks to all who braved the 25-deg (F)
temperatures and wind gusts up to 45 mph to make this an alumni gathering
to remember.

Please click on the image to see who came and to view photos.

30 JAN 2019: We still plan to gather tonight despite the weather reports. Locally, it is cold and windy, 35 deg. F (no snow or rain); but the winds
are supposed to calm down around 7 PM. We believe everyone will be
able to travel to/from dinner safely. See you tonight!

A few months ago when we posted about Photago shutting down,
we quickly collected your photos for the 2015 Reunion slideshow presentation from them. At the time, the photos were all sorts of
sizes, shapes and different resolutions...and was difficult to view
on our website.
The PDF file has been reformatted, and you should be able to view all 237 photos easier now. This file will be permanently kept in our alumni website.
Alumni, when you get a chance, please look at these donated photos - you're probably in one or two of them! Enjoy and thanks for your patience while this
PDF was being reformatted.

September 1966
When is a Newcomer not a Newcomer? When is that magic moment when one is officially an Oldtimer? After surviving
a Delhi summer? When Dream Whip starts tasting like whipped cream? Or when you receive your first News circle?

For those who need an introduction, News Circle is your magazine. Its aim is to keep you informed and enthusiastic about your life in Delhi. This issue is dedicated to New-
comers. We hope it provides a few nostalgic moments for Oldtimers, too.

The Wall Street Journal ran this blog post of mine two years in a row. It is
just shy of a decade old. And as yet another holiday season approaches with
marketers determined to pull heartstrings with melancholy and nostalgia, I
feel compelled to repost it now myself. I still stand by it. And I wrote it after a particularly rough decade of my life. - Terin Tashi Miller (AES Class of 1977)

MAY 1966
It's a Hail and Farewell kind of time in Delhi and News
Circle dedicates the issue to our graduating AIS seniors.
We think, when you read the results of our creative writing contest, you'll hail them too-and reluctantly bid them fare-
well. This magazine sometimes sounds unique. We LOVE teenagers.
