Songs and music definitely reflect our thoughts and our hearts.  No wonder young people still listen the kind of music you listened to and now call them classics.

All read and done, do you have a way out?? As for today's generation, I don't think they are least interested in wearing at all, forget the old jewels. Yes, they probably can get them cashed...MM said it right!

I guess everyone should visit Auschwitz once in their life time. We can then appreciate our independence and freedom. This is exactly how we felt when we visited Dachau, Germany. Naresh your portrayal of the camp created vivid images in my mind. Well written story.

Subject: Daryanani Roots

Thank you for sharing your story. As human beings we love to know our roots. It gives one a sense of kinship especially when our families are getting smaller. Children are facinated by personal history, it will help them connect to each other one day!

Dear Chandroo,

I stumbled upon your Homestead blog as I was googling St Paul's igh School, Rangoon. I saw that you and Cyril were friends. Met with Cyril and his girlfriend in KL a few times. So sad he passed away. I left Burma for UK in 1977 after graduating from medical school, and lived and worked there till about two years ago when I retired. I am now spending my retirement days in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Thank you for your blog. It sure brought back memories of my good old school days. It is so sad the country and my Karen people suffered so much under the thumbs of these ruthless regimes. Anyhow looked at your lovely photos. Life sure is short. We just have to make the most of it. Regards.
