Simrit Kaur. Ram Dass on Facing Death. Remembering Donald McKayle. Now that both my cousins are enrolled there, I paid it a visit on a whim, and amidst the noise of a post-school crowd, found reminders of my courses on South Asian history — portraits of Jawaharlal Nehru and Gandhi, and a remarkable feature on the lists of house captains — all began from the year It reminded me of such colonial-era schools that Karachi too has, but that have portraits of Jinnah instead.

I wondered if all the students of St. One day my cousin arrived from school, telling me about a Mughal painting his teacher had shown him but that had a caption in Urdu. He conveyed her excitement at this news, and some days later his teacher had sought an appointment with the head of the history department. It was the latter who owned the book with the painting. My cousin was adamant that I must come at the appointed time and meet the head of history of his school, not because I wanted to see the painting but because his reputation would be at stake if I failed to show up.
For this, we have to show proof that we did not indulge in any criminal activity while in India.
This proof — a statement — can be given only by a police officer, and if he delayed signing it I would not make it for this very special appointment set up by my cousin. Amid this bureaucratic hurdle, I ended up once more at St.
The school bell rang and I was led up a flight of stairs to a staff room. Ribeiro — a school teacher in a saree, her hair in a neat short haircut. She introduced herself as Gowri, the head of the history department, and with her cheerful smile made me take a seat in a sunlit tea room. Gowri wanted to know more about me and about Pakistan, and her curiosity was shared by two other history teachers — one of whom teaches my cousin and had taken the appointment.
What struck me in particular was Ms. Gowri reads out passages on Gandhi — Mahatma for her students, but a Hindu lawyer in a Pakistani textbook. She uses the text to tell them about a parallel figure in a country that is right next door — Jinnah, the Quaid-e-Azam. I was stunned as she beautifully narrated this. I could not quite express in words to her how important this step was — a history teacher erasing dogmatic writing of the past in her classroom.
The Farooq Bajwa textbook in her hands was her piece of treasure and she wanted me to send her another one. But she did not let me leave empty-handed.
