Suriakant K Shah (1960 - 1963)

I was born in Kisii and went to Kisii Primary School before joining ESS in 1960.

I was good at Maths but did not like history or geography that much. All our teachers were very good. They taught with interest and dedication. I can still remember Mr PA Patel’s exhortation to make your dreams become a reality. I can remember the physics experiment that Mr Xavier De Souza devised where he stuck a magnet to a cork and floated it in the school pond to illustrate for us physically that the direction of the magnetic field is always from the North to the South pole! I remember how vividly Mr Mendonca would bring literature to life. And of course Mr AN Sharma was a master at spotting the reasons for mathematical errors.

After leaving ESS, I did my Inter Science at Elphinstone College in Mumbai. I then decided to come to the UK and completed my ‘A’ levels. I joined Imperial College to do a B. Sc. Degree in Chemistry. I worked for a year. I went on to do a B.Sc. in Pharmacy and in 1977, acquired my own pharmacy. I have been running the business ever since.

I am married to Krishna and we have 2 sons and 2 daughters. Both daughters are doctors and are married. Our older son is a pharmacist and the younger one has started to study Physics at Imperial College.

I hope to renew old friendships and develop new ones at the Reunion.
