Say’s Yashodhara – “I spent twelve full years in AFFBS; it was the home for my growing up – so many ups and downs. For some reason, what I recall most vividly is the greasy alu-tikki-burger in the canteen. It was a incredibly tasty snack, but its memory represents friendship, recess, gossip, an escape from boring tiffins, giggling at clowning boys, envy for popular girls, admiring the seniors and sighing about our teachers. Schooldays weren’t perfect… but they were wonderful. In fact: My latest book is a memoir where school is featured. Bit.ly/ThoseDaysinDelhi “
