More Weddings. . .
Shailender and Yalma || Vinod and Renu

January, the first month, and the last of this century began with a real bang for our employees. What a happy day it was for the families, as the weather too smiled down on the happy couples and their family members.

Shailender son of Surat Singh, peon in the high school office, was married to Yalma from the village of Bhengi, Tehri. She is 21 years old and is presently doing her High School exams. Shailender and his family come from the village of Paria in Tehri. He is the fourth generation here at Woodstock, as his great grandfather, Jem Singh, his grandfather, Padom Singh, and now his father, Surat, have all been employees at Woodstock. (See the story in the Brown & Gold, October 1998). Shailender is presently assisting his father in the High School Office. He has 2 brothers and five sisters. Our new groom, who is 23 years old, holds a B.Sc. degree, and is now doing Masters in Computers Application from the Indira Gandhi National Open University, Delhi.

The second wedding took place on the 23rd. in Shimla. Vinod son of Manohar, peon in the music department, was married to Renu, from Sanawar. Renu has one brother and one sister, and is the daughter of Guljar and Sheila Devi, who are employees in the Lawrence School, Sanawar. Renu enjoys knitting and sewing, and has joined her husband here in Mussoorie. Vinod is the third generation of employees at Woodstock, as his grandfather, Chander Ram worked at Ridgewood, while his wife, Champa Devi worked for Mrs. Kapadia bringing up Shenaz, and then working with Mrs. Biswas. (she was a marvellous cook!) Vinod has two brothers.
