Gurdip Singh Bahra (1965 - 1968)

Born in Eastleigh, I attended Racecourse and later Ainsworth Street primary schools. I left Eastleigh Secondary School in 1968 and did my ‘A’ levels at Jamhuri High School. I obtained my B.Pharm. (Hons.) from University of Bradford and registered as a pharmacist in 1976.

After a year with Boots the Chemist in Maidenhead, I was lured back home. I did not enjoy retail pharmacy in Nairobi and switched to Industrial Pharmacy and spent the next 17 years manufacturing pharmaceuticals, first as Production Manager at Dawa Pharmaceuticals, Ruaraka and later as Quality Assurance Manager at Elys Chemical Industries.

I got married to Satwinder in Nairobi and we have three boys, Jasdeep, Amardeep and Rajpal. We moved to Maidenhead, Berkshire in December 1994 and purchased my pharmacy, Kay’s Chemist, a few years later. I thoroughly enjoy community pharmacy but the best years of my life were at E.S.S. and Jamhuri High.

I was good at athletics representing Zambezi House in various events and played hockey for the School. As a Boy Scout I enjoyed camping and developed an interest in rock climbing and mountaineering. It is the discipline instilled by our teachers, like the late Mr. Hashmi and the good and bad times shared with my friends, Mahendra Patel, Aslam Khan, Deepak Bedi, Jasvir Jutla, Pradeep Luther, Narinder Mann, to name a few, that I cherish most. Would it not be great if some of them turned up on 25 September and called me Guddi again?

- As of May 2017
