ALSOC Day on the 6th of November 2015 Dear Members

We are delighted to inform you that under the guidance and with the support of our Rev Fathers, Alsoc Day will be celebrated with the Assembly of the entire Senior School including all teachers and students. The program envisages paying homage to Rev Fr Camille Bouche and celebrating ALSOC Day on the 6th of November 2015 at St. Xavier's School grounds at 8.00 am. Rev. Fr. Bouche was and remains a legendary guiding light and moving spirit of the School. He shaped and touched the lives of all those he came in touch with and what better way to celebrate his Birthday than with the School Boys who were so dear him. Please note the change of date this year given the school holiday on 10 November 2015 on account of the festive season.

We are also very pleased that this year eminent Industrialist and Alsoc Governing Body member, Mr. Sanjiv Goenka, has very kindly consented to address the Assembly on behalf of Alsoc.

A Free Health Check Up Camp after the School hours for interested members, teachers and the staff of our school apart from other deserving and challenged sections of Society has also been arranged.

ALSOC HERITAGE WALK "There is an old proverb that says ‘Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. On Sunday, 4th January, 75 of us, from ages 6 to 60, were all up and ready at 6.30am, sipping delicious tea and eating samosas outside the North Point Police Station, waiting to go for a walk through the history of Calcutta, organised by the “Family Series” Wing of Alumnorum Societas, the alumni of St. Xavier’s Collegiate School. I knew this was going to be a memorable experience, and, although apprehensive, I was extremely excited about the walk, and walking with some of the families of ALSOC members, and the Reverend ‘Fathers’.

Punctually, at 7am, the walk began. Divided into 3 groups by our experienced guide, Ifti, we got an introduction to the city and how fortunate we are to have the fruitful Hooghly river flowing through. Our first stop was the Zenana Ghat, just below the Howrah Bridge. The stop here gave us spectacular pictures with the bridge and the river in the background. We could feel the freshness of the morning air, and the early rays of the rising sun. We also witnessed a wrestling enclosure, with the wrestlers showing off their muscles and tricks. We then saw the Lohaghat, and were fascinated by the ancient iron pillars. After hanging around these places for a while, we reached the flower market, which is a revelation in itself. The sheer beauty of the flowers left us all mystified, and the quantity and variety of flowers sold here, left us jaw-dropped. We then climbed up from the Flower Market and reached what was my best part of the walk, crossing the extraordinary Rabindra Setu, the busiest cantilever bridge in the world. The sheer feeling of walking across the Howrah Bridge, no matter how many times we had done it before, was awesome. The slight movement of the bridge every time a car passes leaves behind a feeling of its own, and the views from atop are indescribable.

We then reached the Ahiritalla Ghat via ferry where the exotic local ‘Litti’ and famous Tulsi tea were waiting for us. After these delicious refreshments, we moved on to Kumartulli the last stop, where the skilled Artisans work on the famous idols made of clay; an entire abundance of the Saraswati Idols just strewn around, was a real treat to the eyes. With this and some delicious fresh ‘gur ka sandesh’, our amazing and memorable 3km long walk, the 7th most famous walk of India, came to an end.

Most of us, in spite of living in Kolkata, had never visited these places and this walk gave us a chance to catch a glimpse of this. I would strongly recommend readers to take this walk if they get a chance.
