Ms Nalina Nayak

Ms Nalina Nayak, retired Head Mistress, BES School, breathed her last, today,  early morning. She was 84. She had been ailing for the past two months and was looked after, at her residence, by her younger brother.
Many ex-students were fortunate to have been taught by her, and carried an ever lasting impression on her good teaching, and discipline.
We, the ex-students of BES School , mourn her death. Those who wish to pay their tributes to Nalina-di, may do so,  through guestbbook on top of the page.

Shri Subroto Roy

Posted on 9.1.2009
This is to convey the sad news I received from Dilip Mukherjee of the passing away of our dear friend Subroto Roy (class of 1956) in Goa on 8 January 5.00P.M.
I have many fond memories of Subroto. We walked to Dadar station together to get on the train home after school larking about a little and singing 'Amra Duti Bhai, Amra Duti Bhai, Ekta Duta poisha pele Beef kine khai".

The image of Subroto I will always have would be him in his gum-boots (Wellingtons), shorts and hat wading through the rain during the monsoons. I usually got wet as I was in my chappals and no umbrella. 
Subroto always looked at the bright side of life and had much practical commonsense. And this was so when we met in January 2007 at the school reunion.
I would very much appreciate if you could please inform any of our fellow batchmates that knew Subroto particularly Jhorna Ghosh, Kajoli and Mrinalini Chokroborty - you might know someone that knows their tel numbers.

Smt. Swapna Sen

                      May her soul rest in peace
With deepest regret I have to inform everyone that our beloved class-mate ( 1964 ) and one of the all time smartest beauties to study in our School ( though for a very brief period ), Smt.Swapna Sen left for Heavenly abode on 30.1.2008 after being tormented by stomach Cancer for some time. 
On this occassion I can not help but remember Swapna Sen`s gracious presence in our class/school and how her style of dressing in school uniform (tunic and the knot of waist strap/belt)  raised our school`s  smartness level to those of the then posh Convent Schools of South Bombay.
                            Though never expressed, everyone of us had developed such immense admiration for her looks,smartness and sophistication and I for one would consider a great previlage and honor on the days when she  asked  me to help her with her lessons/tasks.
                             Since she had a very brief association with us as also her different and affluent up-bringing, none of us could develope great intimacy with her, but she always occupied a very special chapter in our school memories.
                              During the 2005 Re-Union of Batch 1964,
Smt.Pherwani ( Ms.Gandhi ) had mentioned about Swapna being in Pune and since then, we had traced and learnt about her illness through Partho`s sister Ratna .
                              We understand Swapna was being treated in London during her last days and received the best of attention,efforts and arrangements by her family.
                             Let us all pray for her SOUL TO REST IN PEACE  and the bereaved family members to derive all strength and courage to with stand this great loss and tragedy.
