Jamshedpur: 70 students of the 1984 batch of Sakchi High School organized a picnic at Dalma Bamboo Haat as a means to celebrate a get-together after 34 years which did not seem a long time as the ladies and gents embraced each other and relived those days with fondness and excitement prevailing in the air.
Some of the past students who live and work abroad, took an ecstatic walk down memory lane. The 70 odd members of the �84 batch came down with their families to partake of the infectious sense of delight during the picnic.
Shubhomoy Chowdhury from Kolkata said that the feeling one evoked after meeting the other batch mates with a 34 year hiatus, could not be expressed in words. �We embraced each other, we sang and danced that exuded the feeling that it was only yesterday that we last met,� said Chowdhury.
Perhaps, Sumona Mukherjee observed aptly, �The first meeting is and excuse in the form of this picnic.�
They decided that from 2019 onwards, the batch of 1984 would organize such get-togethers twice a year where they would come with their families and enjoy one-another�s old times.
