School photographs from Calcutta, India

I Atended Don Bosco School (1964-1972), for elementary & junior education; before transfering to La-Martiniere School (1973-1975), for my high-school diploma. I then visited Illinois & Colarado in the USA (1976-1977), to enquire about future undergraduate college education. I then returned to India & came back to the US once again in 1979, as a student to attend College. I made a mistake in not completing my Bachelors degree in India & coming for it to the US, instead of a Masters !
