Provocans Ad Volandum

15 Mar

Translated: Incitement to Fly.

Credits: OJ and her now-defunct Canon PowerShot in sepia mode. And this fabulous institution, frequently ranked the number one arts college in the country.

    Yaaayy, my college, my college!! Actually, I started jumping the moment I read the title of the post 🙂

    Thanks for this pic. Monday morning made!

    I think I saw it from outside once when I was visiting Bombay. Your pic makes it look even more imposing! It is an incitement to fly 🙂

    I spent two years and they were the best years ever.

    Xaviers, not just a college. It’s a way of life. 🙂

    Shivani: Ours. 🙂

    Anjali: The picture is a huge disappointment. I don’t believe it does justice to the real deal at all. 😦

    Gentle Whisperer: So true. It was on the college tee-shirt one year.

    Mom Gone Mad: Really??! When? And why did you not say hello? 😛

    Am an oldie, dearest. Was there from 96 – 98. And you?:-)

    Mom Gone Mad: ’94 to ’99. What was that about oldies again?

    Mallika: I’m wondering if I’m permitted to say old age. This was my older Canon, bought in 2005. My new one is a PowerShot too, so you probably thought I was referring to that. 🙂
