MEMORIES FROM NIGERIA


Somayaji, Umakanth, Dr Bhagwan (standing)
Prasad, A S Moorthy, Dr Vijaykumar (sitting)



It was a nice get-together at Bangalore...... with people who lived in Nigeria at the same time in 70's and 80''s....... Gombe, Yola, Maiduguri, Potiskum and Kano....... places 200km, 300km, 400 km apart..... still used to meet very often..... no telephones, mobiles and internet.......
A Sitarama Moorthy, Senior Manager at Best & Crompton, company putting up high-tension wires was the main person who was very social, helpful and friendly......
Dr S C Vijaykumar, pathologist at Bauchi, with his wife Bharthi was equally good at hospitality, and M G Prasad and Nagamani Prasad at Gombe, with fine humour at all times, and K Umakanth, young manager at Best & Crompton was equally helpful and dashing...... Dr K Bhagawan, at Potiskum a nice gentleman physician at Govt. hospital, helpful at all times.....
Memories were still fresh after almost 25 years...... still remembering the little incidences, people who are no more.........


Bharti, Nagamani, Nalini, Meena, Chitra



Dr Vijaykumar & Bharthi hosted a fine grand lunch at their residence at J P Nagar,,,,, with obbattu, chitranna, and many more items.....
A S Moorthy came from Vaizag, (Vishakapattanam), Umakanth, now working at Saudi was on leave with his wife Chitra & daughter Anupama, and Bhagwans, Prasads and ourselves, residents from Bangalore....

It was a great time for all..... Again we all went Dr Bhagwan's residence at 5th Block, Jayanagar and had tea and snacks....... and more nostalgia of those days......
