Dr Manu Patel (1953 - 1956)

I was born in Nairobi, Kenya and after my primary education in Balmandir Institution I joined ESS. I worked in National and Grindlays Bank, Nairobi from 1956-1959. After deciding on further studies I moved to Mumbai and finished two years in Bhavans College – Andheri. Then I moved on to Grant Medical College and finished my MBBS degree in 1968. I returned to Kenya and worked for one year as an intern in Mombasa. In 1970 I joined Nairobi City Council and worked as a medical officer until 1980. After this I moved to the UK and have been working as a General Practitioner. I retired in 2002, but still work as an Assistant GP.

While in Nairobi I used to play cricket and volleyball. I played in the First XI cricket team of the school and captained the Second XI. I also played table tennis and reached the quarterfinal stage in the Kenya Open Championship. Unfortunately, I finished playing games after leaving college.

I am married to Manjula and we have two children. Tushar is a dentist and Shilpa is a microbiologist.

If time permits I am looking forward to attending the reunion, but in case I cannot make it I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my friends and teachers all the best. I miss my old school days and I thank all my teachers who helped me along the way so I could achieve my present position. Thank you very much.

- As of October 2006
