Another day, another school visit! This time, I headed out with Himanjali as Beatrice to the Maxford School, a newer institution in the Delhi area with several locations. It took us quite a while to find it as we rolled through some frustratingly ubiquitous Delhi streets, but time is wibbly, and so it wasn’t a problem when we arrived a bit late.
After a quick chat in the Director’s office, we were whisked away to a huge covered amphitheater, chock full with what must have been around 500 students in their red and tan uniforms. As I approached the stage I was greeting with a few rousing cheers--and then repeatedly buffeted with chants of my name! My goodness!
I did what is now becoming a regular set—with a few tweaks here and there as to how to explain nonsense. "The Bathing Hymn" and "I've Got a Teacher, She's So Mean" are becoming the go-to gold. A wireless mic let me do a bit of crowdsurfing.
