Ode to Panchkula House





I received word the other day that Panchkula House is no longer housing foreign trainees. This is a sad day for the 20+ people that have graced this place. This reminds me of when my favourite liquor store in Panchkula was razed by the authorities months after I returned home. It's really unfortunate that the places so dear to me then get cast away for no good reason.

More importantly, I wonder what will happen to the Fridge-of-Fame. It had all the profiles, plus pictures, of the people that lived in the house. Perhaps the trainee who leaves the house last could take a picture and send it to us alumni for memory sake.

Goodbye, Panchkula House. We had a good time while it lasted.

This isn't Canada. It's India. And, yes, we have Tide in Canada.

that frying pan...
that milk pan...
so many memories...
so many burns...
so many near scaldings when the handle fell off while full of chai...

The fridge (and pics) actually got moved to the new trainee house (which is quite the dump in comparison), but I don't think any new profiles have been added since you left, Kent.

By the way, one of the trainees here is going to try to revive the blog so I'll see if he can put up some pictures of the new place.
