This is St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai, exactly the way I saw it, in a series of illustrations done of the campus, featuring me in all of the scenes.
The quadrangle was an interesting place; all of the galleries and passageways could be seen when you sat right in the middle of it, as I usually did for lunch. It was fun to be able to see most of the college from one spot, and to see people scuttling about in the corridors busily.
Sometimes I wonder if the passageway that led to my classroom became as much of a home as the classroom itself, considering how much time I spent standing outside, punished.
Quite officially christened ‘The Hogwart’s Staircase’, this is where I’d bring all my non-xavierite friends to show off my college architecture.
