Pardeep Gundara (1957 - 1960)

I finished my Senior Cambridge in 1960 and after a short stint in India followed my brother to the US. I attended Bowdoin and Nasson Colleges in the state of Maine and graduated with a BA degree. I then completed my Masters in New York and worked in New York City and Niagara Falls NY for a number of years.

In the United States I had great experiences. In 1964 I hitchhiked from the state of Maine to California and back. Amongst the many jobs I held, I worked as a fisherman in Cape Cod and also as a Swalihi teacher in Harlem, New York City.

I then decided to go North and ended up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where I joined the Alberta civil service. Western Canada with its Rocky Mountain and the prairies is beautiful and I love it here. In the summer, this place reminds of Kenya. I have been with Alberta Government for the past 28 years and am now the manager of the Alberta Human Rights and Citizenship Commission.

I really miss all my friends from ESS. By the way, I still ride horses as I did in Kenya and love jogging and working out. My wife Gurdip is from Uganda and I met her on one of my trips to Chandigarh. I have two lovely daughters Rohini and Amrita. Rohini has finished university and Amrita is attending college.

(See my 1960 picture riding bareback in Ngong, Kenya. My second picture was taken in July 2006 with my daughters Rohini and Amrita)
