The Beginning...

The Year Fifty-Seven

by Fay Chowfin

‘Twas the year fifty-seven and all through the land;
There was burning and churning, and wringing of hand!
The entrance exams were written and over
The Selection Committee had gone into labour!
They writhed and they moaned in painful contractions;
And soon announced their joyful distractions.

They were – Bensam, Bundellu, Chellappa Paul,
Jegadees, Jiwanmall and Date so tall!
Annie and Annie G. Sarojini and Leela;
Leela R. AND Saro, Vasantha and Veena.
Moses and Sampath and Jeyapathy G
Jacob and Isaac and Krupavathy B.

Came Selva and Kula from over the sea;
Susheela, Sushila and Angela P.
Fay, Nimmi and Dolly and Zokhaw Muana
Don’t get him confused with Erulkar Mona!

Kuruvilla and E.T. Don, Christy and Viji:
Devaprasad, Malathi, Amar and Rosy.
Andhra arrivals Sada, Surya and Joan O.
Israel Eddie and our sports Queen Sulo.

Ramesh, Raju, Rashid and sweet smiling Sally,
K.P. George and Chechamma round off the tally.
‘Twas the year fifty-seven, five decades ago;
We love and we cherish the memories that glow!
