North Point boys preparing for war

Posted on December 24, 2012 at 6:58 PM
After I gave my book talk, one of the North Point boys (I still refer to them as boys — and Loreto girls — even though most of us are in our 60's and 70's) came to me and said that my story triggered a memory he had of that time. He was one of the senior boys in school and shortly after the 1962 war broke out, the senior boys were taken to a nearby military base and given basic training on how to use rifles in the event the Chinese were to invade Darjeeling. He said half way through the training their guns jammed. This is what really happened to the Indian soldiers at the front and many lost their lives!
