Here’s a selection of portraits from the felicitation ceremony on October 29th, the third morning of the Reunion 2017.

These are mostly candid shots of people who’ve spent their lives doing love’s labour away from any limelight or acknowledgement. But in their hearts, love for OG flows stronger than any other – they hold a treasure trove of memories and OG history in them, and talk of times and people gone by with such ardent passion. You could not have lived your Oak Grove years without some of these faces filling up those days with all the love and nurturing care.

Three cheers to all of them!

These photographs were posted as an album on the OGS Mussoorie Facebook group on November 11, 2017.
