Annie Besant School, Allahabad

Annie Besant School Allahabad, the school where I have studied from class-3 to class-8th. It was Junior High School (8th standard) at that time, now its Girls Intermediate (12th) School.

Too many memories attached to this school. Teachers, classmates, classes, prayers, water tank, playground… Few years back I tried visiting there, but school was closed so was unable get access… was lucky this time…

It was prayer time when we reached there… the rule to form queue is from shorter to taller… Being shorter, I use to stand in first 5 🙂

Its 25 years since I left the school… most of teachers are retired now… 25 batches passed-out since then, I am sure there will be a “me” studying there in some class…
