    Hi. Sikha Madam, This is Parichay Gupta , if you remember . I was just going through the review , I could not control myself to write these words. I have enjoyed my school life in West Point . I can still remember those days in Hostel. Diwali Celebration at Hostel with My Late Beloved Principal and his wife [Late Mr. and Mrs. Tamang- I will never forget them ] and theirs three daughters[ Sikha Madam, Sabina Madam with them we had interacted a lot ] . I was just going through the pictures and remembering our inter school debate competition, Elocution competition, All India Quiz Contest and so many other things. The School changed a lot . I could not see any old guys of my time [1992 time] . All my Regards and Best Wishes to All the Teachers and Students and Sikha Madam . Hope She gets to know the review. I have still the passionate to be an ex student of the School. All the Best . Missed the School.

    A good school. Spent 14 years there. Not as great as before though. Let's say, the director's time was the golden age. Miss shikha's age was silver. Now it's copper, no iron age. The mighty fall, if you would have that.
