Table of contents: trimester 1: Monsoon ..................................04 trimester 2: winter .....................................31 trimester 3: spring ......................................62

A note from the editors: “Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalteed, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer.� - E.M. Foster, Howards End Ms. Shrestha found the previous quote and we thought it was cool. We wondered if we could try to create a deep enough meaning about society and freedom then maybe we could get away with it. We, in fact, did not. What we did, actually, was work hard. Enjoy the Yearbook. - Akshaya and Alisa

Dear Dr Long, Your leadership and words of encouragement have meant a lot to me. I’m very grateful for the opportunities you have given me. Thanks for helping me to identify my skills and strengths during all the time I worked with you. Your advice will surely benefit me to chart my future at Woodstock! I canot measure your contribution in my life by counting the promotions and perks. The value you have added to my career with your inspirational guidance is actually priceless. I would like to thank you for being a wonderful boss. Goodbye and all the best for your new journey ahead… -Sandeep You have been the most inspiring Head of School I have ever worked for, and the most fun! I have worked for you now for 8 years at the time of writing, and have enjoyed every minute and been challenged constantly! I have learnt a lot from you and your style of management and have enjoyed being your “aide-de-camp” to quote you. I have been alternately tortured by your constant teasing, and inspired by the beautiful vision and thoughts you so easily express on a daily basis. You are irreplaceable for me and I’ll miss you hugely! -Upasini Patiently you mentor & lead We will miss you, Dr Long! Woodstock has flourished under your leadership. Your inspiring ShaRing wIsdom & meeting each need educational vision and your transformative leadership style has made this hillside a happier Support aNd adviCe willIngly you supply and more purpose-filled place. Thank you for your humour, your storytelling, and your wise On you the Staff and Pupils cAn reLy counsel. You and Sue live lives of generosity and compassion – and we will be sure to pass it on! We will miss you Dr. Long!! -Ethan -Vimmi The great thing about Dr Long is that he always asks why we are doing what we do as a school! There has to be a philosophical purpose to our actions. Nothing is done in a vacuum. This has certainly helped me to ask why I should do things and how my words and actions might bring life and meaning to the community. I am hugely grateful for his vision which brought me to this hillside and has strengthened my belief that education has the power to change the world! On top of this is the generosity and warmth that Dr Long and Sue Long bring through the way that they open their house to so many inside and outside this community. -Simon Paul Jlo, It’s been real knowing you. The energy you radiate has made woodstock what it is today. no matter the day or time it would be impossible to see you without a smile on your face. seeing it dissapear is one of the biggest setbacks woodstock will ever have. No matter where you go or what you do next, remember the community that will stand behind you no matter what. - The Yearbook Team

Advisor To Ved, Fiza, Ismail, Diksha, Arpit, Nandini, Manasvi, Siah, Daeyoung, Ansh, Adyan, Sahil and Jaydeep About 18 months ago I was asked to take over as Homeroom Head for the Class of 2019. I also got a new advisee group in the bargain. I was rather apprehensive of being in charge of a new group of students (that too of the largest group of advisees in the grade) just 6 months after I had first become an advisor. A few awkward facetimes later when we had our first advisor night, I was extremely nervous. But when all of you entered our house, the way that all of you just made it your own home, it felt natural to have you as part of our family. Every student in Imperium is special to me, but you all have managed to integrate your lives with ours. From showing you stern eyes when some of you (regularly) come late for assembly, to having serious talks about discipline, to being collectively outraged at Siah’s unfiltered commentary, I have felt a very real collection with each one of you. I know that each one of you has a busy life ahead and I might not even see some of you for a few years, But please know that you have a home wherever we may be. Prateek, Sarah, Rehaan and Kabeer

It’s been wonderful long four years and I enjoyed every moments with you guys either it is facetime, advisor nights or in class nights. It’s good to see how all of my young advisees become responsible young adults and make wise decisions in academics and in Woodstock life. I still remember it’s been four long years but seems like few days back the same group I got in gr-9 and later join by Anika and Matthew in gr-11 to get the full shape. It’s extremely enjoyable to see Tenzin’s smiling face, the innocent face of Hyunyoung, Akshaya, Shaurya and YeHyang over the years. Our moonlight walk over the chakkar and fearsome face of Aniket, Shruti and Red are still fresh in my memory. Vaibhav shows wonderful organizing skill as he was the main guy organize most of our advisor nights over the years and Anika always coming up with ideas. Matthew always wants to discuss more on classical music as a musician it’s been wonderful to spend time with him. For me it’s memorable due to each and every member of this advisor group contributed to their class and to school some ways. I hope they will cherished every moment when they left behind the school life of Woodstock. I wish them all success in life and hope to see all of them in their reunion after 10 years. Pray to God’s blessings to all of my advisees. - Aloke Maiti

Messages My dearest Advisees, It seems like yesterday when we sat in the Alter Ridge Dining room introducing ourselves. Pankhuri, Aarushi, Tanishq, Balani, Yugyel, Khush, Hyenjin we have been together for 4 years. and those of you who joined later Saksham, Sanjana, Hala, Faisal, Shantanu and of course Nathan. It’s been a great being on this journey with you. I am going to miss the advisor times, whining and complaing about teachers, teasing Saksham. Playing games during Advisor nights especially Life, Monopoly, Catan, UNO and the cheating that went on. There’s so much that can be said here about each one of you but then it would go beyond the stipulated 200 words. Suffice it to say that it has been a joy and a privilege for me to be your advisor. It has been a privilege to watch each one of you grow into confident, capable young men and women. I will miss each one of you, I wish you the best for the future. Follow your dreams don’t ever give up on life when the going gets tough the tough get going. God be with you.

TO THE CLASS OF 2019 It has been my privilege to be your co-homeroom head the last two years. Thank you for being such a great class. You have done well now go forth and conquer the world. MAY THE ROAD rise up to meet you. MAY THE WIND be always at your back. MAY THE SUN shine warm upon your faces; MAY THE RAINS fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again MAY GOD HOLD YOU in the palm of His Hand -Traditional Gaelic Blessing

Dear Keldo, Diya, Samuel, Dori, Karsten, Mubaraq, Shubham, Rachel, Drystee, Risika, and Sherap, It’s only been a few short months that we’ve been with you, but what a pleasure it’s been getting to know you! You are ready for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, and we’re cheering for you. Don’t forget to come back and visit! – Mr. Russell & Ms. Kelli

Congratulations seniors!! I am so proud of your hard work, dedication, and commitment finishing your last year at Woodstock. What an amazing accomplishment! I wish you all the best with your future adventures after Woodstock. I look forward to hearing about all your amazing accomplishments! – Ms. Koester 109


Dear Advisor Group, OK, we have one last Kokology game to play. However, you cannot answer until after you graduate. And I cannot reveal answers until 2029 (at the earliest). Weird, I know, but maybe this is my way of saying, Hope to see you again. Here’s the set-up: The flowers you wore to JSB are faded, some faces in this yearbook look unfamiliar, and most of the things you learned in English 10 vanished from your memory as soon as you turned in your final empathic response. But some memories from high school stay fresh in everyone’s minds forever. So now, think back to your high school graduation ceremony. (Remember: answer this in the future, not now.) Which of the following images stands out most clearly in your mind? 1. The face of Dr. Long handing out diplomas and shaking hands. 2. The banner reading “Congratulations Class of 2019.” 3. The playing of the graduation march. 4. The rows of students standing proudly (and crying) on the ramp. Trust me, you’ll remember one of these more clearly than the others. I’ll let you know what it means at your 10-year reunion (hope I’m invited). The answer might not be as funny as which musical instrument you prefer or how many strawberries you would eat or what you scream when on a rollercoaster ride. But it’s an indication of what you value. Trust me, I’ll remember you all for a long time. How can I not? While I was watching you grow these past three years, you were also watching my family grow. You held Lex a week after he was born and made Christmas cookies with Sebastian. In a big way, you were a big part of our family. Hopefully, we were a small but important part of your time here. Take care. Enjoy life. Sincerely, The Plonka family

Hearty congratulations to Apoorv, Harshvardhan, Alisa, Sahil, Jinhwan, Anvi, Ngo, Ruke, Riya, Tenzin Chowang and Tanushri on their graduating from Woodstock! It has been a most satisfying and enjoyable journey for us as we traveled with you as Advisors through your years in high school. We are proud of the lovely individuals into which each one of you has blossomed. Please stay in touch and know that you will be welcome in our home whenever you wish to visit us. This Irish blessing is especially for you: May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Ajay and Sanjaya Mark

Congratulations everyone on graduating – you made it! It’s been great to see you grow up into fine young people since I first taught most of you in Grade 9. I’ve particularly enjoyed our profound and meaningful discussions at breakfast every Tuesday – I will miss that Ahaan – I’ll miss your bear hugs. So funny to remember you at Sunday School way back with your bow tie in Grade 5! It’s gone so fast! Khushi – Thanks for being an awesome School President. Great job! Detsen – please be on time for graduation! See you in Bhutan! Lila – C’etait vraiment chouette de te connaitre et de discuter plein de choses dans la classe de la politique. Tu es une fille genial! Bonne continuation, que Dieu te benisse, et est-ce qu’il y une cabine telephonique pres d’ici?! Disha – please sit with the advisor group in homeroom otherwise I’ll mark you absent Yehun – God bless you in the future wherever you end up. Don’t game too much! Talitha – I always enjoyed your singing over the years. God bless for the future. Abhay – Aap kaa yatra safal ho! Jaideep – All the very best for the future. Perhaps you’ll end up running Cozy Corner one day like your namesake Nigel Mustapha – We’re still waiting for you! Best wishes to you back there in Azerbaijan, and your brother Keith. All the very best in this next chapter of your life. Blessings, Mr Beavan

My dear wonderful advisees, Kritin, Meher, Emma, Shibani, Nawara, Hassakol, Abdul, Iqbal, Malsawmsangi, Let the caps fly and the celebrations begin!!! It’s almost time for the scholars you know to move their tassels from one side to another and look to the future. I can’t believe it’s already end of year and you guys are graduating (KUDOS!!!) Most of you had already been here for years before and all of you welcomed me in, thank you for accepting me into your group so warmly this year. It’s been a great pleasure and privilege being your advisor this year. I have learned a lot of things from you guys and I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known. My best wishes to whole class of 2019, I praise you for your efforts, and send good wishes too, for a future filled with happiness and your fondest dreams come true. With loads of love and care :) Ms. Amita

Shreya

Mum, Pa, and Shivi, thanks for being there. Chimmi, if I could choose one person to fight with over the smallest things, I’d choose you. Because we always end up laughing afterwards. Thank you for taking care of me when I was dying physically, emotionally, or mentally. Even though you get cake on my jacket, paint on my hoodie, and period on my pants (that I had to wash off), I still love you. And no matter how many of my personal belongings you ruin, nothing will ever change that. Nandini, honestly, we are the perfect power couple. There isn’t anybody else I would rather go through everything we went through than you. Thank you for being super nice to me even when I didn’t reciprocate it. You make me a better person. I love you. Hyenjin, from being awkward little weirdos in Hindi class three years ago to killing each other in the taxi in Delhi, I didn’t know what it meant to love and hate someone at the same time until I met you. You were my first friend at Woodstock and will always be my true wife. I love you. Siah, you’re not dumb. You are probably the most straight-forward person I’ve ever met, which I absolutely love. I love doing dumb things with you. I love you. Fix your eating habits. Anvi, thank you for all the college help. I don’t know where I’d be without you. To all the apartment people -- you are my family and I wish we could always live together like one. <3

Daeyong, Manasvi, Dori, and Faisal, thanks for the hiking memories. Daeyong and Manasvi, thanks for the piggy-back rides. You guys are the best. Yehang, you kind of scared me in grade 10 but now that I know you better, I always think of you as a little pink bunny. Lila, thanks for letting me crash at your places in Delhi and Goa (and hopefully Paris soon). Red, thank you for taking care of Chimmi and me in Bhutan. Siri, thanks for being so kind and caring and yet so strong. Adhyan, thanks for secretly being super sweet and making me laugh intentionally and unintentionally. And for lending me clothes in Goa. Ismail and Ahaan, thanks for making me laugh. Aarushi, no matter what happened between us, I am still grateful for our hilarious memories as roommates.

Anvi Mom and Dad: Can’t even begin to express my gratitude to you. Thank you for catering to my whims even when I don’t deserve it. Everything worthwhile in my life is for you and because of you.

Juniors – check grad cards! Here’s an excerpt from a poem from the New Yorkerthat expresses everything I want to say. Let’s pour [the sunlight] back into starter beds or leave it on the sill for neighbors orfor later/A grassy smell in the kitchen/Lidocaine floats/the fringed tulips in a crease and that’s the morning / There’s so much to look forward to/ Big bowls of cereal/A tonal shift in the fertilizer/Later automatic ramen and a Coke/You can start anywhere it doesn’t really matter/Flowers on the tablebreathe sugar/The skylight in the dosage doesn’t.

똥예향 You’ve seen me in my rawest self. It’s because you are so authentic (and lame). Chimmi, I found you after vainly chasing after popularity. When I first started getting close to you I knew I wanted you to be my friend because you were so unapologetically yourself, sometimes to a fault, jk. Shreya, you used to be such a quiet loner when I approached you randomly in Hindi class. I’d never imagined you’d be so crazy. I love shocking people with our audacity to be so weird. I’ll always be on your side despite our overwhelming emotions.Nandini, there’s a warmth in you that I would crave in the cold city, and I will miss you pulling my cheeks. Anvi, you’re so weird. You’re at times the Indian version of me; you’re so lame but I love your jokes, I will miss fooling around with you. Siah, I think there has never been a person that I’ve been as frustrated as I’ve been with you. But also, I’ve never met someone I’m still friends with after being so frustrated. I hated you for getting us stuck at a railway st. at 2 a.m and your heater but they’re such dumb memories now.Dori, deep talks that last for hours is our thing. Don’t forget we need to travel together.Manasvi, you care for everyone so much, it frightens me -- that you would lose it one day running around taking care of people. Please take care of yourself first. EWC, I am so proud of our EWC. Swap I’m trusting you; it’s on you now. Thank you Mrs. Shaw and Catherine, and Mr. Jeff in helping us make this a reality. Lila Dimsum, My self-esteem is basically comprised up of your compliments. Please keep commenting on my Instagram posts. Thanks, ok, bye. Jkjk. You’re soo…. French. I love you. I can’t write seriously about you, idk why, even though I really care for you. Let’s just go to Europe already. 형, When I can’t deal with life you’re one of the top people on my list to turn to. Ever since you told me about your early days at Woodstock, I’ve felt really comfortable with you. Being a complete wack in front of you is second nature. Mrs. Pike, I love your eccentric nature and how understanding you are. I guess literature does make you empathetic.You’re someone I’d like to be like in the future. I love you, Haven and Kaisa. Ms. Seefeldt, I look up to your educational philosophy. I have learnt so much because of you, you’ve made learning a lot more interesting than I ever thought it could be. Daeyoung Kim, I remember our friendship started during an unexpected conversation during AW 10th grade. I’d miss our memories: flying to Korea, fighting with you in AP Seminar, and Goa ofcourse. Dartmouth, I love hanging out with you because I can tease you. Just laugh at yourself if you really want it to stop. But don’t, because I want to keep teasing you. Faisal and Saksham, I am indebted to you since your help from Friendship peak. Mr. Plonka and TheWoodstocker team, thanks for all your hard work; it wouldn’t be what it is now without you. I’m so proud of us. Thank you so much Mr. Plonka for being so dedicated to whatever it is that you do, whether it be journalism, english class, or editing my apps. Mr. Nanda and Mr. Hubbard, you guys have helped me in my artistic journey enormously in your own way. Thank you. From the people who have left, I would also like to mention a few wonderfully caring people, Yaeyin, Chiriki, Mrs. Yaman, Ms. Dunn, Mrs. Swanson, who all have left a lasting influence on me. Faadumo, Youngseo, Vicky, I’ll miss you guys too. Koreans, meet me in Korea. Faadumo, you’re such an inspiration.

Siah To my trustworthy sister Dana, I will miss you so much. I am sorry for being a bad sister, I have been hurting you a lot. Honestly, I don’t understand how you can still smile to me, say that you love me, always care about me, still try to listen to my words, and share your stories with me instead of planning to murder me in this mountain. You have surprised me in many ways. I wish I could have spent more time with you, eating food and sharing stories. Please call me when you have a hard time, I will do my best to help you. I am still there for you. Hope you can learn a lot not only in academics, but most importantly, in yourself. Also, please help to keep the youngest one in our family on the right track. If she comes to Woodstock, I am sure she will be more stressed than you because she has never been completely independent. I believe that you will be a nice sister like you did. Thank you for everything. I love you more than you think. Good luck in Woodstock, make your life sexy! 우리 예쁜 송아야, 언니 졸업해! 언니랑 떨어져있으니까 많이 보고 싶었 지? 너도 금방 언니 처럼 졸업도 할껀데, 힘들지 않도 록 지금부터 뭐든지 노력하면서 하루하루를 보냈으면 좋겠어. 네가 노력한 만큼 결과가 나오지 않을 수도 있 지만, 게의치 말고 꾸준히 한두번 더 도전하면 엄청난 차이가 보일꺼야. 언니는 송아가 안한거 뿐이지, 못하 는건 절대 아니라고 믿어. 책도 많이 읽고, 성격 좋은 친구 많이 사귀어. 우드스탁 오면 단아 언니가 많이 도 와줄꺼야. 단아 언니 말 잘듣고, 열심히 스스로 너의 인 생을 만들어가봐. 언니도 너한테 틈틈히 전화해서 도와 줄께. 언니가 많이 사랑해 송아야. 화이팅.

To all the People I love,

사랑하는 엄마 아빠, 세 자매 중에서 제일 철 없이 속 썩이던 큰 딸이 드디어 우드스탁에서 졸업하네요. 이 학교에서 느끼고 배운 점이 셀 수 없이 많은데, 제일 크 게 와닿았던건 가족의 소중함이였어요. 그 전에는 힘들 때 혼자 감당 하고 이겨낼 수 있을거라고 큰 소리 쳤지만, 12학년되니까 말이 많이 달라지네요. 힘들 때마다 혼자 있고 싶어했던 난데, 엄마 아빠가 유일 하게 보고싶었어요. 바빠서 얼굴 몇 초, 목소리 몇 초 밖에 보고 들을 수 없었을때도 많았는데, 저한테는 충분히 큰 힘이 되었어요. 제가 보 고 싶은 마음에 전화했지만 되려 제가 엄마 아빠께 못되게 굴었던 때가 기억나네요. 근데 저를 너무 잘 아시는 엄마 아빠여서 제가 애처럼 말 도 안 되는 소리하고, 이유 없이 짜증내고, 한 없이 눈물 보일 수 있었던 거 같아요. 그때마다, 한결같이 좋은 말 해주고, 위로 해주고, 때로는 억 지로라도 웃겨주셔서 감사합니다. 눈물 잘 안 보이는 저지만, 이제 엄 마 아빠의 웃음소리, 또는 목소리만 들어도 가슴이 메이고 눈물이 저절 로 나네요. 저한테 부모님이라는 이유를 넘어서 한 없이 엄청난 희생 하시고, 잘 한것도 없는데 혼내키기는 커녕 계속 날 믿어주면서 용기주 시고, 이런게 미련한 희생 같았어서 가끔 밉고 화났던거 같아요. 근데 이래서 제가 저의 한계에 더 도전하고 열심히 했었어요. 정말 엄마 아 빠 없이 졸업 못 했을거예요. 대학 다니면서 엄마 아빠 곁에 있고 싶어 요. 엄마 아빠가 좋아하는 여행도 틈틈히 같이 가고, 맛있는 것도 많이 사드리고, 옆에서 건강도 열심히 챙겨 드릴게요. 제 곁에 건강하게 오 래오래 계셔주세요. 진짜 많이 사랑해요. Hey guys, We are leaving!Let’s not be sad because true friends are meant to meet each other again no matter what. when you have hard time, believe that life is sexy: As long as you don’t stop, as much as you feel sad at the moment, you will be much happier in the future. Everything will be worth it. I will miss every part of the Woodstock - except dress code, I will miss our Goa trip, Friendship peak, Woodstock nature, Woodstock teachers, Woodstock menu, my 5 times of SAT and 7 times of TOEFL exams and more. But for the most is you guys: Hyenjin, Shreya, Chimmi, Nandini, Anvi, Tanushri, Chiriki, Shruti, Riya, Lila, Dori, Manasvi, Siri, Red, Sangi, Yehyang, Hyunyoung, Drystee, talitha, Hasumi, Disha, Liah, Hala, Fiza, Emma, Daeyoung, Faisal, Rohan, Ismail, Ved, Lukas, Chowang, Shubham, Saksham, Ahaan, Keldo. Seoyoung, Damin, Hakyung, Tara, Tashi, Saja, Youngseo, Faadumo, Anjoli, Huijeong, Swapnil, Anirudh, Mikko, Youngbean, Cheema. Let’s keep in touch so that one day at least we can recognize each other on the street. Post on Instagram, update your life. Hope I can meet you guys soon. Come to my wedding if I have one with my sexy husband.

I Q B A L Ved- Our first conversation ended with me yelling at you and telling you to get out of my room. I think you remember that. I hated you. A few weeks later, however, we started talking more and I had never met anybody with the same attitude as you. So kind, positive, and funny. I am so glad we got so close and were roommates for so many semesters. You are one in a billion. Neel- I didn’t think anybody had good taste in football teams in our grade until you told me you support Manchester United. I liked you instantly. You have always been so approachable and easy to talk to. You stuck by my side, even in eight grade :) And for that my friend, I can’t thank you enough. Looking back at it now, it just shows me what an amazing, true, real, person you really are. Janak- Where do I start. I don’t know how many hours of laughter we’ve shared. And I don’t know how many hours of silence we’ve shared. When you can share uncomfortable silence you know you have found somebody special (PF). I am so glad we have the same sense of juvenile humour and I have always been so comfortable expressing myself around you. Please do not change Janak (but stop listening to terrible music). All Three of You- When I had to repeat the seventh standard words cannot express how anxious I was. I think about it now. My god how happy I am. I found the three of you. I am so glad we’ve been roommates for so many years and have shared so many memories that I can never forget. Whenever I have been in a bad situation I have always been comfortable to talk to anyone of you. All of us met each other in the seventh, and been together till the twelfth. I love it. Ansh- We have had our fair share of hilarious memories being roommates in the eleventh and twelfth. You are such an open and loving guy. Stay the same. Rohan- I have never seen you angry. Your smile is so loving and chipper. Ismail- My big brother. You are the easiest person to talk to and I love our conversations. Yugyel- I hate you for scoring that free kick on me, but it was a beautiful one. Some of your one-liners are gold and make me laugh so hard. Stay funny!Detsen- I absolutely love your vibe. We have laughed together so many times and I love hanging out with you. Akshaya- I felt so safe knowing that you were my defender in goalathon. The real saves have always been made by you. You are such a fun guy. Sherap- Hands down the coolest and most nonchalant person I know. Adyan- My gaming brother. People in our grade despise gamers, but our friendship started because of it. I am so glad we were roommates in twelfth grade and got close. Abhay- When I get stressed with work I only think about you. I know there’s a guy out there who gives zero f…. Apoorv- Talking to you about our similar interests is a pleasure. Something just clicks and I can talk about whatever it is for hours with you. Ahaan and Harsh- I’ll never forget that one night when we talked for hours and watched the sun rise in Ridgewood. Kritin- There is no way I am going to be able to forget some of those hilarious moments in band throughout the years! Jaydeep- I heard that people born on the 30th of July are the nicest and most chilled out individuals. That applies to you, not me :(Dorjee- My five star skiller. Playing with you is ajoy, playing against you is a pain. Don’t lose the optimistic attitude I love about you. Chowang- By far the most versatile football player I know. Please stop scoring against me. Mubaraq- I can’t thank you enough for all the jamming sessions. The chemistry was unreal and something I’ll never forget. What a musician you are, never stop. Karsten- Easy to talk to, easy to laugh with, so approachable, and so funny. I am so happy we got close. Stop ditching me! Jin- Keep talking back to teachers brother. I love it. Balani- Pol and Gov would not be the same without you. Your vibe makes the class so enjoyable. Arpit- We had some insane moments being roommates in eighth grade and I had some hilarious memories with you that semester. Keldo- Dai! You are a competent and intimidating athlete. Keep drumming ;) Aniket- Please stop skipping meals. Shaurya- When you talk to Lucy, let me know.Vaibhav- Your knowledge about technology is insane and I don’t know how many times you have helped me with my laptop and phone. Stay nice!! Tanishq, Daniel, Shubham, Lukas- Practicing and playing with you guys was a joy. Sahil and Sahil- One of you is lame XD Khush- You wait and see, we will be free again.

Mama & Dad: Thank you for sending me to Woodstock. My life would be completely different if you hadn’t sent me here. I wouldn’t be who I am today if you hadn’t sent me here. Mr & Mrs Peters: You've been our dorm parents for 6 years now, and I have to say no one could’ve done a better job that you guys. You’ve watched us grow from dumb kids to who we are today. You were always my parents away from home. Harsh: Harf Bhaiya I hope you grow a pair and stop falling for girls so easily, jk you deserve the world bro. That night in 9th grade changed it all between us and I’m glad you’ve been such a huge part of my life. Ahaan: I’m only writing this so you don’t feel bad I didn’t write you one. I’ve known you since 6th grade, you’ve gone from being a cute kid to a buff and scary bully. Hopefully we’ll have three more years together, we’ve been on a lot of crazy trips and made a lot of memories and there’s more to come. Kritin: I’ve never felt deprived of a older brother cuz you were always there for me, I love you bro. Ved: You’ve never failed to make me laugh and I love you for that. I’ll never forget our Ridgewood memories. Abhay: Abhay Yaar, I wish you lived in Dubai, we would’ve done some crazy things there too. I’ll never forget the times we’d roast Ismail and the Sahil’s, and the hours we chilled in your room the first semester. Keldo: We’ve had some messed up moments. There used to be a time when I would say “bro even I want a girl,” now you’re generally the one saying that. I’m glad we roomed the final semester. We’ve laughed together, played ball together, gotten pissed at each other, but through it all you’ve always been my brother and you’ll always be my brother. I love you bro. Bajwa: Cutie!!! I’ve never said it but I think the only reason I wear track pants almost everyday now is cuz of you. I’ll miss the late night Oreo and milk snacks chowang, you and I would have. Balani: Balla bro I think the only change you’ve had over the years is that you’ve reduced eating maggi now. Also you suck at Indian music I’m better. Apoorv: I can’t even imagine what I would do in Ghaziabad without you. I’ll never forget that divali week, we went all out. You’ve always been a part of everything I’ve done this year. I’ll miss all the late nights we’ve chilled together. We’ve got a lot more to do in Delhi. Neel: No matter how much you deny it, I’m the better tabla player. Akshaya: My first roommate in WS. I’ll miss you bro, we should’ve roomed once more just for the fun of it. Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!!!! Janak: You’re the most entertaining guy I know. Our room first semester was damn fun, I’ll miss annoying Harsh with you. Ansh: Lauroo, although you were weird when you first came, I’m glad we became close this year. I’ll remember all our late night talks. Yugyel: I’ll miss bunking Indian music and talking to Maiti about the most random things. Take care. Shaurya: We had a crazy Indian History trip. I’ll never forget that Luggage Room night and ding dong ditching at JW Marriott. Sahil: My Saudi jihadi. You’re the cutest volleyball ever. Hopefully someday you pay us back for that Llamas bet. Please don’t ever get abs you’re cute like this. SMJ: Hopefully now you’ve learnt how to copy things correctly. Red: I'll miss your food chef. When we meet in Bhutan you better cook.

Rachel: Thank you for making my senior year so memorable, this year would’ve been so different if you weren’t a part of it. Tbh you were the biggest part of it. Take care. Abhik, Sethi & Cheema: You guys are and always will be my younger brothers. Take care of each other, especially Sethi he’ll manage to do something dumb for sure. Most of all enjoy your senior year and make the most out of it. Yonden & MK: Keep balling you beasts. You guys better bring it home for us. Nemo: You’re one of the craziest and funniest 10 year olds I’ve ever met. I hope you hit puberty soon. Chopu: You’re something else to watch playing football. Keep playing and bring something back home. Akshaj: I wish you were here the first semester, we would’ve chilled a lot more. I’ll miss all the late nights we’ve chilled. As annoying as you’ve been, I gotta say I’ll miss a lot bro. Gauri: You need to learn how to cook, I won’t be there to cook for you anymore. I’ll miss your annoying presence around me. You’ll always be my younger sister. Take care. Sherap: You’re the cutest sexiest man alive. I’d say you’re the better Nepali. Math will never be the same now, idk how we survived this year. Yehyang: Hi Yehyang!! You’re one of the most cheerful people I’ve ever met, please never change. Imperium: Thank you for the best years of my life.

I am so grateful to God for sending me to this school and bringing the right people in my life. Mom and Dad: You instilled in me a love for education and the importance of learning through experience. Through your example I have learned about hard work, dedication and faith. That last one which has been especially important during my time here. I thank you for your trust in me and allowing me the opportunity to be responsible and independent. I love you both and could never write enough words to thank you for all that you have done for me. But I can say thank you for Woodstock, I would never have had the courage nor the opportunity to come here without your support. Thank you. S6 (Siri, Sangi, Yehang, Hasumi and Red): There's a saying that goes “show me your friends and I will tell you who you are,” Well if that's true then Hasumi you have made me kind. Sangi, you have made me nearly pass out from laughter, and also diligent. Siri you made me strong. Yehang you made me happy and light. And Red, my roomie for life, you made me persevere and accept. I am proud to know all of you and spend what feels like forever with people who made me a better version of myself. Thank you. I love you guys. My basketball girls: Continue to be strong and supportive to one another. Don’t wear the jersey for yourself but for the girls that surround you on the court and the bench. Thank you for making my last season of basketball so memorable, and so hard to say goodbye to. Chowang, Sherap, Dorjee, Karsten and Jinhwan: bio bud, art gang, and fellow white boy. Thanks Chowang bc I honestly don’t think I would have made it without those study sessions.Sherap and Dorjee I’ll pretend I’m not still mad at you guys for having an A...Karsten, I’m glad I’m not the only white person who doesn't share their food. Jin, you’ll never beat me in ball blaster. Thank you guys all for making school a little more bearable and times out of school more fun.

Thank you guys for always making me laugh and getting my dark humor, stay safe these next few years.Abhick: My best bro from 11th grade! I can’t imagine a time when we weren’t as close as we are now.

NEEL & VED

As I sit here, on a bean bag in the Senior Lounge, writing this ‘will,’ listening to “sad classical music,” I feel like a British army dude writing a letter with a fountain pen. This is it. My six-year journey is nearly over. It hasn’t hit me yet and this makes it really hard for me to reflect on our friendships. Where would you be without me? Hahahaha. As I sit here, on a plastic chair in the computer lab, frantically writing down anything that comes to my head when I think of you, I feel sad that I don’t know how to finish this sentence.

Ahaan: Meri jaan, my partner in crime, regardless of our ups and downs, you’ve become a major part of my life and my family bro. Kritin: Teetooni, nothing makes me happier than the fact that you became the brother I never had in the last 3 years. There isn’t a single memory I can let go off with you. You are irreplaceable in my life. It’s going to be weird without one of my three ch-oo ki matra, ta-ee ki matra, ya-aa ki matra. I’ll miss you a little toooo much bro. Kritin & Ahaan: You guys are the Forrest to my Bubba, the Imraan and Arjun to my Kabir, the Raju and Rancho to my Farhan. I love you guys.

One thing I’ve never said to you but always done is, grown up looking up to you. I hope I never lose you. Neel: Makhi now that SATs, college apps, everything is done, please loosen up. You’ve been a brother to me since you joined, love you bro. Janak: ”Hey, I’m Harsh Garg.” I hope your obsession with me ends soon.

The late nights, the khud sessions, and most of all the numerous times I only took your case are some of my most memorable WS moments. Keldo: Mr. Big Lips, you show yourself to be the mean jock to everyone else, but the softie inside you is what I admire and love you for. I’ll never forget that you envy me for the one thing that people hate me for. You’re a hard one to say goodbye to bro.

Red: You’ve been like a sister to me, you annoy me, you come to me for help, you act like a child with me, and the worst of all things, you hold on to me as if I’m there just to carry you or be an armrest to you, but it evens out since you’ve always been there for me whenever I’ve needed you. Rachel: You were just a lame, white girl in my AP English class when it all started and I don’t know how that got us where we are today, but you are one person I plan on travelling miles just to see. Siri: iPhone, Mr. Crider’s advisor was the most awkward thing ever and now I’m finally getting free from getting annoyed by you all day, but as happy as I am, it makes me extremely sad that I won’t have that pitch red face shout my name and walk weirdly to me in the corridors. Pankhuri: You have been the most useless person in my life, but for some reason I’ve always needed you around, stay cute and stay the way you are. Sangi: It feels like it was just last year when our mom’s randomly made us meet each other in front of the school gate. The last 8 years went by a little too quick with you. Even though we’ve had rough patches, you should know that you’ve always been one of my closest friends <3. Yehyang: Marshmallow, stop worrying about others all the time and pleeeease stop punching me. Vaibhav: I can never forget our talks in Ridgewood, and our drives up to Mussoorie.

You are one person who has this smile which makes me uncomfortable and happy at the same time. Ansh: Blackie, you and I have become so close in past year that I never thought we could become, I am so proud that you have matured up so much that I can trust with anything in my life. I hope you start wearing clothes in college. Janak: Jaan, the times will be missed when we both stand behind the turntable hyping up the whole school. I will miss all the stuff we did together as roommates and will never forget you making random noises in the middle of nowhere. Ved: There’s so much to say in a few words, you are one of the people I trust my life with, you have been there with me trying to cheer me up even though I have been really mean to you.

Yehun

엄마 아빠, 제가 우드스탁을 다닐수있게 도와주셔서 감사해요. 제가 멀리 떨어져서 지내는게 엄마 아빠랑 예찬이 한 테 어려워도 계속 꾸준히 저를 도와줘서 감사해요. 덕분에 정말 잊을수없는 추억을 만들고가요. 계속 멀리서 도와주신 거, 감사해요. Samuel, Naphon, and Buzz, feels like we were always in the same room. And there are so many things I will miss about you guys. I will miss asking Naphon for stuff, asking Buzz for help in studies and hearthstone, trying to argue with Samuel, and all the other stuff that we all did together in the room and outside the room. Sam, always be philosophical, asking anytime whatever goes through your mind that is controversial; and get that diamond elo. Naphon, stay as you are. Humble, introverted, nice to people except when we ask you for stuff. I don’t know if I can return the favour for all the things that you did for me, but man, thanks a lot. Buzz, just keep living your life as you have always done. Doing things that you feel like doing. Hope you find a partner someday, since you always say girlfriends are overrated. Best of luck going back to your roots in China! Danny, the OG Content Cop, I hope you all the best for strea – I mean studies, and hope you never stop doing what you love, cause CS is life right? Karsten, I will miss playing violin with you, and all the RE Retreats we went to. I will miss all the tag games we played, as well as practicing violin together. And never STOPSTOP practicing. Lukas, Tanishq, Jin, and Chowang, thank you for making my last 2 years in Woodstock the most unforgettable time of my life for all the wrong reasons. I hate you all. Talitha Hi SIS, hope you do well, keep that strong Christian-self alive; I will never forget all the time we spent being awkward in advisor. Keep being brutally honest, it helps people get your point at times. Aarushi, I hope that you stay as you are wherever you go, since you stand out in literally anywhere you are and suffer. Jokes aside, you are one of my closest friends I have. I will miss you and your unique personality along with identity crisis. Oh, and always remember, if medicine fails, there’s always your nice little santoor for sacrilegious playing. Who knows, you might be a Ling Ling after all. I hope you stop spitting on people and acquire the ability to calm yourself after laughing. And lastly, Tanishq, Aarushi, and Meher, never forget: Roses are red, Violets are Blue, whenever I smell roses, I think of a BOOM.

Naphon

Mom & Dad: Thank you so much for sending me to Woodstock and all the countless support and words of encouragement that you guys gave me krub. It really helped me through tough times as you were always there for me. Love you guys krub!!! Perm & Koon: Only one year left to go you guys! Make the most out of it and enjoy the remaining time you have here. I’ll miss you guys a lot! Message or call me anytime you need anything. I’m proud of you guys! Buzz: My best friend since 7 grade, we’ve known each other for 6 years and you are like a brother to me. I’ll treasure the memories we made together and the help you gave. Yehun: My Korean bro! I’ll miss you and your singing. Don’t shout at the screen too much. Sometime I might’ve been annoyed when you borrowed things, but I just want to let you know that you’re more than welcome to do so. Samuel: My weaboo bro! I’ll miss talking about anime and all the “philosophical” questions you asked. Don’t go making weird noises randomly or people will think weirdly of you. Contact me if you’re ever in Bangkok and we’ll meet up. Lukas: Hey bro! I’ll miss your jokes and all the pranks that you like to do. Keep in touch and we’ll meet up again in Thailand. Daeyoung: Hey Daeyoung! I know that we haven’t talk much lately, but I hope that you’ll become successful in whatever you do in the future. You’re one of the most talented people I’ve ever met. Take care and keep in touch. Jaideep: I know that I haven’t play badminton with you much, but I really do enjoy all the games that we played together. Daniel: My fellow advisee, you’re one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met -- always supporting everyone behind and in front of the scene. Keep it up and take care. Rohan: Good luck in Dartmouth and don’t forget about the flippy thing! Saksham: I hope your condition gets better and enjoy your gap year! Sangyoon: You’re one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. Miss you bro. Oscar: Miss you and your neon shirt, yolo man. Panisa & Ran: Let’s meet up in Thailand sometime! Aarushi: Hey my fellow 9 years old! It was really fun talking to you. Keep in touch!

SAMUEL

Mom and Dad: Thank you for sending me to Woodstock, even though I was against it at the start. Bro: Even though I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to you much during school, thanks for helping me with all the college stuff. Karsten: I know I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend much time with you during senior year, but I will always remember you as my first friend in Woodstock. Yehun: You know I still remember when I broke your hard drive when we were 7th grade seemed like my debt went on forever, thankfully I repaid everything LOL, anyways even though many people disregard gaming as an actual memorable experience I hope you will remember the days we played League of Legends together. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s try to get to diamond. Buzz: I hope you reached legend in hearthstone by the time you are reading this, if you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t its fine just remember that the credit card is the strongest card in all TCGs. Naphon: Hey Jai, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make fun of you for being the delegate of Netherlands, but I guess I have now, anyways donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop watching anime and reading manga even after youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 30. Remember that I was your first roommate đ&#x;&#x2DC;&#x160;. Rohan: GL in Dartmouth I guess, you did tell me that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to leave for Dartmouth but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the memories in Woodstock. Sanjana: Thanks for all the game nights, it was a lot of fun. Oscar: Ok, I know you are no longer a Woodstocker but you were a lot of fun when you were here, If you are reading this I hope we can meet one day in the US. Hyunyoung: I still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak Korean XD. Nandini: I will miss our philosophical talks in Art class, I guess stay curious. ICT: Hi ICT, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if you will remember me, but I hope Woodstockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet will improve because the 7 years I have been here it felt like nothing changed. Chowang: I know I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to you much, but I genuinely think you are the best senior overall. Sangyoon: Sorry I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to Rokeby with you on your last week. To 2019: Well I guess this is it then, I will remember Woodstock as the place where I changed my view in people, that there are a variety of people with unique personalities and I will always remember 7th grade activity week. I hope everyone has a bright future, PEACE.

Saksham Basu Hey, so I don’t know how to thank everyone who has been a major part of my life until now into this senior will, which is far too small a space, but here goes. The last two batches of seniors that graduated, the Class of ’18 and Class of ’17, for me every year since tenth grade as these classes have graduated Woodstock seems to become slightly less familiar and within my mind Woodstock will always be as it was when I first joined. Imperium, Class of ’19, Woodstock without you guys is pretty much impossible for me to imagine, to not see you all every day in the hall or in class, to not have check-in with all of us loaded into Cedar… well suffice it to say I am not entirely sure what Woodstock will be for me without you in it. The teachers and staff members from Woodstock and before who have taught me or supported me in pursuing my interests since I joined: Mr. Plonka, Ms. Homewood, Mr. P, Mr. Anderson, Ms. Anderson, Ms. Daniel, Dr. Carter, Ms. duToit, Mr. Hubbard, Ms. Seefeldt, Mr. L, Mr. Conrad, Mr. V, Dr. Long, Mr. Shah, Mr. Kutty, Nathan, Jai Sir, Ma’am Arya, Mr. Bannerjee, Sangeeta Ma’am and I am sure many others to whom I apologize for forgetting to mention them. My Dorm Parents, Mr. Peters, Mrs. Peters, Mr. Ady, Mr. Huten, Mr. Alex, it's a bit difficult for me to imagine not seeing you on a daily basis and to not be living under your care, thank you for the past three years. Mallik, thanks for being you, for the trust you have had in me, and for the opportunities you have given and continue to give me. Mr. Fried I realize that it is highly unlikely that you will ever see this but I can’t write about the people in Woodstock who have been my mentors without you being in that list, you were the one who introduced me to climbing and the one who made it feel not just like a PASSAGE or an activity but a community, and so I thank you for what you have given me. Ms. Roberts, you have been so understanding and supportive of me, while still continuing to push me to do to things that at times might have been not what I wanted to do or not easy and I thank you for that Ma’am, because it made me have to confront certain things when I would have otherwise hidden. Mr. Tobias, Ms. Pike, and Mr. Santos I don’t have a word in my vocabulary that can express what you have been to me, mentors, parental figures, and a thousand other words of similar meaning couldn’t express it, so all I will say is I am infinitely grateful for all that you have done for me and that I was lucky enough to have people such as you to learn from and to interact with. Emma, Lila, Faisal, Dori, Manasvi, Alisa, Khushi, Akshaya, Sam, Yehun, Naphon, Rohan, Hyenjin, all of you are amazing people and friends, and I wish I could dedicate a paragraph to each of you but unfortunately there’s a limit to the space I can use, but just know that I am so thankful that I get to consider all of you my friends and am sorry for the many, many times I have disappeared and not been there when you guys have reached out to me, I love you all. Pragya, you have been one of my best friends and like a sister to me, I am so grateful for having had you as a friend, for all the weird conversations we have had over the time we have known each other and for all the times you have been there for me when I was struggling. Daeyoung, Khaled, Sava, Tanmaye, and Buzz, you guys have been with me since I joined Woodstock and though a lot of you are not in school now, I can’t leave you out, you all have been there for me literally anytime I needed you, there’s no group of people I trust as much to have my back, I love you all, you aren’t just friends you have been and will continue to be my brothers. There are a few more people I need to mention before I can end this monstrosity of a senior will. My friends from Wynberg-Allen, you all are the reason I will always be able to recall my time in that school with the fondness I do, and though I am bad at staying in touch, your importance to me hasn’t diminished the least bit from when we used to roam around Mussoorie to now, you all are part of my family for me. My friends from Eicher School, I grew up with you guys, we were tiny kids when we met and went through so much of our lives together, there’s nothing that can nullify that sort of a relationship. My sister, for having been a huge support for most of my life. Rhea, you and me getting to know each other was sheer luck and I couldn’t be happier for it. All the outdoors(men/ women) – Will, Swap, Jiwon, Victoria, Mario, Natalie, Anirudh, Joshua – you guys are the future of the outdoor culture in WS. Adya, Jigmet, Gauri, Kahini, Min Jae keep being the amazing, light-hearted, caring, intelligent people you all are. Eicher School and, of course, Woodstock School as institutions for the incredible support it has given me as I was struggling with multiple health issues. Thank you everyone whom I have mentioned and the many I couldn’t, thank you all of you Ma’ams and Sirs :P.

Daeyoung Kim 엄마, 아빠 항상 믿어줘서 고맙고 사랑해. Doyoung, I thought your presence in Woodstock was close to negligible to me, but I think this year without you has proved me wrong. Faisal, you have pushed me out of my comfort zone most frequently by far. I think I can say that I’m a better person now because of that. Saksham, sir I would like to display my dearest gratitude for your amazing tolerance for me. You are truly the weirdest -- fructophobia? Come on man... Emma, I’m too scared to say anything to you like most people are… But, could you please say pani puri for me once? Dori, I wish I had the ability to turn the world into a retro movie for you. Then everything would be perfect. Manasvi, I mean Manna, you’re not weak; you’re strong. You just need a little less drama in your life (pun intended). Chimmi, you’re like a magnet -- always bipolar. Thanks for balancing out my lack of excitement. Hyenjin, please travel all the world with your elephant pants and namaste t-shirt. And make some art and write some if you have time. Yehyang, stop being so nice, man. Take advantage of the gift you have and be selfish for yourself. Shreya, I hope your father never has to use his contacts for mental asylums. Siah, you are so much greater than you think yourself to be, but I will always feel sad for whoever your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd husband may be. Nandini, I hope that you’ll have a vegan community that you can join in the future -- please remember not to carry your leather bag there. (+ Doma’s.) Rohan, I have a dream that one day, you’ll stop talking about Dartmouth. Akshaya, says “just go.” *in a trembling voice as he chooses sleep over workout* Don’t say that during your national service. Alisa, I’ll always pray that you become brave enough (or find someone convincing enough), to go out to the outdoors. You should also try procrastinating -- not your fake procrastination, but like me. Om shanti shanti, and you’ll probably like it a lot. Will, I’m afraid that you’ll climb harder than me one day. Just kidding. Not gonna let that happen. Swapnil, you are the only hope for Woodstock’s mountaineering heritage. Keep it up. Mario, stop flexing around your biceps. They’re smaller than mine. Victoria, don’t ever do anything stupid enough to get yourself injured again. I’ll be sad. Natalie, everything about you is so unexpected, but in a good way. Just keep climbing, Prerna. Seoyoung, please say good things about me to your parents, thanks. MinJae, you’re like the only one you uses 사투리 in Woodstock. Don’t give in to the influences of these Seoul people. Thanks for making me laugh sometimes. Jigmet, stop making excuses for climbing PASSAGE. I know you love cool things like climbing and hiking. Gauri, by now, you can probably squeeze out a pot of chai from your tablecloth. Stop spilling it. Aadya, please guide your fellow CFI Science mates to actually work. Kahini, I’ve never told you this before, but you’re a midget. Shlok, stop buying climbing shoes. Yes, I know you love me. I love you too. Mr. Prateek, I love you. You’ve been the best advisor ever, but please don’t give me tardies. Ms. Seefeldt, everything about you is so flowery. I, as a pragmatic pessimist, cannot possibly understand the positive and idealistic reality that you have been creating; You have influenced me a lot. Thank you. Ms. Pike, you have a special ability to empathize with us, immature, irrational, yet self-justifying teenagers. Thank you for that. We should have another Friendship Peak Reunion within the next 5 years. Mr. Tobias, I wish I could get to your point where I will never be agitated by anything. You’ll always be my Trad Dad. Mallik, despite all your chronic injuries, I hope you’ll voluntarily come climbing one day. Thanks for helping me with not only outdoors stuff, but also my studies (yes, IIT graduate). Mr. Fried, you’re my OG climbing mentor. Thank you so much for getting me really into climbing -- certainly life-changing. Once I’m in NY, I’m gonna crash on your couch, so be ready for that. CFI science, y’all have the power to change Woodstock. Try hard. Cross Country team, good luck waking up to run. I hope no monkeys will chase after you. Senior Sunset Squad, is, I think, the culmination of teenage spontaneity. Let’s never let it die. High Stoners’ Crew. Everyone quiet down -- the leader is speaking. We are sometimes dumb, irrational, and unable to make the right choices, but, we’ve managed to survive. We made climbing a thing in Woodstock (shut up, I know. It’s not that big...). On belay? Belay on. Climbing? Climb on.

Enjoy your last year together, it goes by too fast. “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” -Anais Nin

Manasvi

Khushi ji, thank you for keeping me alive and sane and completely in awe of you. I adore you.

Hyenjin, I loved working with you on our project but I also have loved all our conversations. Suckyoung, Dede and Faiiissaall, I never thought I’d be close to you guys but all of you added something in my life, I didn’t even know I missed.

Please stay that way. Sanjana, Nnnyyy you two were the weirdest roommates ever, both of you are such dumb goofs. Don’t let college make you smart.

Mehek

To the class of 2019, I’m not good with emotions so I don’t think I can individually name people who’ve made a difference in my life but you’ll know who you’ll are. I’m going to miss those inside jokes (VV, potato flavoured c…;) and many more) and chakkar walks and late night talks and brownies baking and reminiscing about talent show. I’ll miss the teasing and being set up with just about every boy in our grade and whining about bio tests and Ms Datt’s roasts. I’ll also miss the shortage of food we caused at Mudcup and cheesecakes at Rokeby and just generally everyone who’s simple presence made a difference, I’ll remember everything so thanks for a great 2 years. So just wanted to say love ya imperium.

Disha

Thanks Mom and Dad for making Woodstock happen. I hate to admit but I’ll miss being called your sister, Mehek. Mudcup owes us. Give me the movies so I have something to do when I don’t have your laptop around. I’ll miss listening to the only five songs you know, you little piece of poop (Rishika) while we lay under the stars at completely appropriate times (wink wink). To whispered talks with Khushi over filled paper cups and egg noodles, and to writing all over Manasvi in Bio (I forgive you for dropping me on my head, btw). I’m still not starting a streak with you, SMJ. Also, Khushi likes me better. Don’t fight me or I’ll make you blind and bleeding again. Tuck shop duties were actually fun with you, Hasumi. Aarushi, you need to stop putting disgusting graphic images in my head. Shibani, Adam Sandler (no more words needed). RIYAA! I LIKE YOU TOO. Let’s “explore” more places in Mussoorie, Manasvi, Khushi, Mehek? Let’s never talk about VV, Khushi, Riya, Mehek, Shruti. Aniket, STOP TICKLING ME! And no, I’m not giving you more gum. Sorry Karsten, I’m not telling you about my T. Not even if you tell me about your imaginary one. And Sahil, if you’re going to call me Bhabiji, at least find a decent Bhai. Frizia, you’re the bubblegum to my banana. I know you don’t like my name Swapnil, but it’s okay because I don’t like yours either. Tsering, I’ll miss drama with you. Hi Garv, you crack me up man. Thank you Siah, Red, Rachel, Mehek, Drystee for being amazing roommates. Alisa, Nandini, Emma, Daeyoung, Hyenjin, Yehyang, my two years at Woodstock wouldn’t have been the same without Sem, Research, Domas, days spent on the carpet outside, and Agra. Alisaaa, what’s up, man? Nandini, walk tall, okay? Hyenjin, I still remember you offering to help the new girl when she was lost in Sem. Ismail, Shaurya, thanks for being good dates. Dorjee, I’m sure we’ll have fun too. Lastly, monkeys have been a big part of my life here. I think they deserve a mention too. 145

Shaurya

Daniel, you will always be my indomie partner (with Akshaya), my IGL in real life, the penhold raspberry flick master, the indian John Coltrane, and mini Mr. Dinesh. I love you bro, never stop scrolling through the depths of 9GAG at 2 in the night, never forget the nights we recreated vines, never stop looking for the opportunity to diss apple and iphones, never stop being you. Akshaya, we’ve had our fights but I’m glad we stuck through it to the end, maybe one day in the future we’ll come back to mussoorie, go to school and play TT – so I can whoop you again, and then go to little hut and have the 50 rupee burgers. I’m so happy I found a fellow singaporean that i could practice my nepali on. I love you, see you in Tekong :) Apoorv, to the guy who was my friend since the beginning, you deserve all the good that life brings to you. There’s something about you that makes you so easy to like and talk to, you are a true gem of a person, and one of the few that I would be afraid to play TT against. Ved, you are undoubtedly the most unforgettable person I’ve met, I love you, you’re going to get that 5 in calc and you’re going to be a great computer scientist. Izukodesuka. Tikda, you peasant, I’m proud to have met you here, you are somehow even more like drake than drake himself, love you, never change. Pankhuri, you’re a special person, don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise. Take care always, you’re going to have a great life ahead, I know it. Dorjee, you know this already, but the world deserves to know: you were the reason I started playing TT, so in a way, you gave me a part of my identity, thank you bro, see you in nepal someday soon! Arpit, bhai, I had the best time in delhi because of you, here’s to opening train doors at full speed. I’m still salty you got the hotter masseuse. Love you bro. Keldo, you might not have expected to be in my will, but you’re one of those people who can talk to anyone about anything, never stop being so understanding. Workout Gang, you know who you are, here’s to the llamas trips right after doing cardio, I wouldn’t have wanted to workout with anyone else. Stay fit. SMJ & Rais, I will miss your fights on who is the better Sahil but the truth is that Ismail is the best Sahil. Love you both :) Vaibhav, My pasta buddy, lets make some pesto in 20 years? Aniket, even though you got me suspended, I won’t forget that you were my first friend here, thank you.

rISHIKA GARG

I hated this school when I came here first and wanted to leave as soon as possible but certain people changed that for me and I can’t imagine life out of Woodstock now.

Also, I pray that no one else has to hear your morning moans. RohanAJCM: You’re a D&D god although you can only turn into a dog-sized dragon. Aniket: Don’t stand outside during strong winds or study on the east coast, you might actually fly away. Stay safe. BubbyJain: We’ll definitely meet in CP sometime.

Ms. Shrestha: You’ve been super helpful with college and especially the yearbook. Hope we made you proud. Woodstock: Everything I am and vhope to be is because I grew up, right there, under that lyre tree. That’s really poetic (and plagiarized) but that doesn’t mean you’re perfect. Stop the useless EMDs that teach us nothing. Stop the useless classes where we learn nothing (we all know which ones). And stop the homophobia, it’s 2019.

I don’t have a lot of space or words to properly thank everyone for their friendship and support over these past few years, so please know this senior will isn’t complete! If you don’t see your name or picture it’s only because I’m writing this 20 minutes before the deadline… Dori, Manasvi, Daeyoung (dede), Faisal, Saksham-- I love you all and would not have made it without your constant support and compassion. Alisa, Nandini, Disha, Hyenjin, Daeyoung, Yehyang-- you are the only reason I took AP research.

Sanjana, N, Talitha, Lila, Dori, Aarushi, Khushi, Hyunyoung-- you guys have been such amazing roommates and I loved being friends with you. To all my Spanish 3 juniors-- I have never enjoyed learning a language more, thank you!! Ms. Seefeldt, Ms. Pike, Ms. Last, Mr. Carlos, Mr. Francisco, Mr. Seth, Mr. Santos, Mr. Arthur-- your teaching has been fun, enlightening, and so enriching.

Natalie and Swap, you’re my favourite. Finally, Yunju, Raymond, Mona (šta radiš?), Shiraz, Mr. Rudnicki-- thank you for your friendship and support even after I moved away from you. I think the best things about me are the things I learned from you. And of course, Julia, I love you so much. Mom and Dad, thank you for the sacrifice you made in letting me come to Woodstock.

Mom and Dad: Thank You very much for all that you’ve done for me, and for sending me to Woodstock where I’ve spent some of the most memorable years of my life. Hopefully, I can carry on with the same hard work and motivation in college and make the next few years even greater. Both of you inspire me every single day, your commitment and hard work have given me lots of opportunities in life, and I hope I can make the most out of them. Saif and Shoaib: The next two years are very important, however, they go by very very quickly so don’t forget to chase after your dreams and goals while enjoying life at Woodstock. Hassakol & Friends: School wouldn’t have been a school without you guys, I had some great times and I made memories that I will cherish forever. I wish you guys the best of luck for the future. Teachers: This message is for the teachers who have taught me, along with others who have looked after me as a student. This is definitely not enough, but thank you very much for the support and education that you’ve provided me with throughout my years at Woodstock.

HYUNYOUNG

하나님 감사합니다. 드디어 우여곡절이 많았던 이 학교를 무사히 졸업해서 떠나게 되네요. 오기 전 보다 더욱더 은혜받고 가는 거 같아서 감사합니다. 새로 만난 좋은 사람들과 더 많 고 다양한 추억들을 만들 수 있는 기회를 주셔서 감사합니다. 앞으로 나아갈 때에도 함께 해 주시기를 소망합니다. 부모님: 이렇게 내가 적었다는 것도 모르겠지만 만약 찾게 되는 날을 위해서 ㅋㅋㅋ. 일단 우드스탁에 보내줘서 고마워. 솔직히 말해서 안 힘들었다면 거짓말이겠지. 그래도 한 번도 나를 여기에 보낸 것에 대해 원망을 느낀 적은 없었어. 뿌듯하고 후련해. 내가 무엇을 하고 싶다고 하면 반대하는 일 없이 나를 항상 믿어주고 지지해줘서 고마워. 그렇지 않았더라면 내 인생에 이런 경험도 생길 수 없었을 거야. 항상 새로운 경험을 만들어줘서 고맙고 맨날 걱정해주고 먹을거 보내줘서 고마워! 귀염: 보고싶어 내새끼 언니가 방학동안 많이 놀아줄게!! Lila: Hey wifey. Thank you for making my recent 3 years amazing. I did change a lot after the exchange, but you are definitely a turning point in my life. I really can’t imagine how I would have been without you these 3 years. The memories we built up will be forever in me. Just everything is unforgettable. I wish you good luck with whatever you decide on doing. I support you always and don’t forget that I will always be on your side (just like what you did for me). Thank you for making me feel like I am a good person. I gained lots of confidence from you. You are beautiful yourself and remember, I am the only one who can call you dumb. Love you ♥. I don’t really want to pick out specific people and talk about (Lila is an exception, you’re welcome Lila) because there will be tons of people I will have to mention. But thank you, everyone, making me go through middle school and high school. In those 6 years in Woodstock gave me new experiences that I will never get anywhere else. I was able to try so many new things and be brave. Juniors: Whoever I have talked to, whether we still talk or not, I enjoyed conversations with you and I’d love to continue. Please, try new things before you graduate, so that you won’t regret! Thank you, Imperium, for making this year great. Thank you, teachers, for supporting me and giving me serious advises; it was a pleasure to sit and talk with you. Bye Woodstock.

Mom, Dad, Dada, Dadi: This journey would be incomplete without your guidance and support. I know I can be a very tough child at times but I will be forever grateful to you for sending me to Woodstock. Love you long time The Peters, Laldai & Mrs.Roberts: I know you guys get this a lot, but life will be hard without you. Sondeep, your taunts will be missed. Miss Peters, your lectures and advice will be needed. And most importantly your Dal Chawal. Mr. Huten your tips on life will be remembered. Mrs Roberts, Mondays without your deadly stares and ‘thappads’ will feel empty. From making me feel like its home away from home, you guys have always made me feel stronger in low times. I love you. Ved: “Kaayna Quarter Kutriya?” Adventurous walks down to dorms, making jokes at the worst possible times, being late for advisor every time, eating street food. If anyone heard or found out about what we talk about, I am sure we would end up in jail. Or worse. I will miss doing all this with you but you better come home for the kachoris quickly. Kritin: If you ever change I will shoot you. No joke. You have got my back for life. Seeing the sunrise with you are few of the best nights I have spent in this place. I will GENUINELY miss you the most. If I am ever in trouble in Cali I know I can count on you … even if it means saving my life again. Remember this, if you ever “leave,” “I already miss you.” Aniket: Roomates for a year. Friends for two years. Brothers for a lifetime. It’s been a good senior year pissing you off everyday. Also please stop sleeping like Salman Khan. Ohhhh btw where you going to college again? Red: The Macro test and the eraser haha! 10 years later when we play Kaboot or Organ Attack, I promise I will still lose. Neel: If there is one thing I remember from grad party last year is hugging you and saying that you are one of the people I rely the most on. Counting down the days ‘til break is going to change to countdowns till we see each other. Neel you’re my bro for life. I’ve got your back always. Ahaan: It’s been short but it’s been more than real. I can count on you always and how much ever we pull each other’s legs, you know how much you mean to me and how much I trust you .Cheers to all the Delhi trips coming ahead in life. Harsh: Making it to grad with all we have done this last year still seems unimaginable. I will carry the memories we have made in this past year forever. To all the late night drives on top of the car in Goa and the early mornings in WS (wink). I love you bro. Apoorv: Appy you’re only 42 mins away from me for the next four 420’s of college life. Cali is going to be way more lit than we have made our WS life. You’re going to kill it in college brother. Abhay: Go check. Lights out. Who all? lets go? You go. AW with you was the best time bro. Stay in touch! Jaydeep: One of the hardest. Cutie—we need to go to Goa, well … do what we do and laugh at people crying again. Don’t worry though, Cancun is round the corner. I will miss ya so much bro. Adyan: Adyan Hussain. You’re a real G. After Goa, I would say you are a harami. Balani: Motte I will never forget how we got close. Our trips to Cozy, CFI during Maymester and IPL buddies. I will always love you and cherish all the memories we have made through these last two years. And for the last f***ing time bro—it’s EVEN. Sangi: That night when we danced on Crank That in perfect rhythm hahaha! Iqbal: HAHAHAHHHAHA. You know what I am laughing at. I will miss memorizing orders of MCQs and the ‘puking guards.’ You are a real brother. Sahil: CUTIE ! Bombay and Ghaseete all the way meri jaan <3. I will always miss the iconic Sahil step at all parties. You’ll never fail to put a smile on my face. Stay the same. Vaibhav: Thanks for waking me up with your noise every weekend. I will always be there for you. I don't need to say this but still, stay in touch Bubby. Khushi: I low key take credit for spoiling you. That rooftop night in Jaipur!! You’re going to be a boss at Brown. Janak: You are so immature at times and that makes you one of the funniest guys I know in school bro. Mario and milk out the window nights. Arpit: Burpa. Bro this past year has got us so close. Goa with you was one of the best times. I loved our breakfast there haha! Keldo: I am confused what you’re worse at: FIFA or driving? But you’re one of the most real people I know bro. That night in Tito’s lmao. Be in touch bi**h. Detsen: Bro you are one of the nicest guys I could have ever known. It’s hilarious to see how scared you are during horror movies. Sherap: SHERPA! Oye Junior oye! Khush: Pappu, Mumbai Indians nu time kyaare nai aavse. Jhin: I love how Balram and Kim Jong-Un are graduating as close friends from an American High School. Ismail: We have come a long way since summer school bro. First friend and forever brother. Shantanu: Lad, you’re mad. Stay Blazed. Dorjee, Chowang, Yugyel: Football with you guys was amazing fun. Juniors: Abhick, Sethi, Cheema, Dheer, Shivaansh: My younger bros for life. Be there for each other. Nothing matters more than the brotherhood. Sebastian, Lex, Caleb: You guys have always cheered me up no matter what. Don’t grow up, these are the best years of your lives.

ANSH & APOORV

019: We have come a long way as a class and we have a long way to go. Remember it’s just the end of the beginning. Woodstock, we’re out.

Mom and Dad: Thank you for believing in me and motivating me to be the best that I can be. I love you both so much and I am so thankful that you sent me to Woodstock. I have made amazing friends here and I can’t thank them enough for all that they’ve done. But I’ll try. Jaydeep, I’ll always remember the fun times we’ve had, from the late night bake sessions to waking up fifteen minutes before school everyday. You will always be my bro. Balani, we’ve come a long way. I still remember when you used to steal tuck from me in ninth grade. But now, if you even ask me for food, I’ll be disappointed that you thought I would say no. I know you’ve got my back and I will always be there for you. Kritin, thank you for welcoming me to Woodstock with the worst football roast session ever, thank you for being my physics and chemistry buddy: Snell’s Law lol, and thank you for cheering me up whenever I was feeling down. I couldn’t have made it through high-school without you. Now the adventure moves on to Cali my bro!!!!! Ahaan, how do I fit everything in three liÇnes for you? I love you bro and I’ll miss you a lot. I will never forget all the fun that we’ve had in Panchsheel Park: the OG house. You’re my buzz buddy and forever friend. Harsh, you’re first impression of me probably wasn’t the best. But I’m glad we’ve gotten so close over the years. Thank you for these amazing phrases: “bhand”, “oud”, and ofcourse, “scene kya hai?” You’re one of my best friends and I love you a lot. Abhay, my bro, my buzz boy. When I met you for the first time, you were so quiet. But now, we’ve told each other things that we wouldn’t tell anyone else. I hope you get good at LOL someday because you’re pretty bad. Have fun in college, I know you’ll kill it my man. Arpit, my Wakandan brother, remember when we took that video of Vaibhav… We couldn’t stop laughing man. I have had such amazing times with you. Thank you for making me laugh and helping me when I’m in need. “Slamm Dunkkkk.” Keldo, you're such a fun guy man. You make me laugh whenever we chill and I love you for that. Thank you for always keeping a smile on my face. Neel, I've had so much fun with you. Supporting United hasn't been easy in the past few years but it's certainly been better with you. I'll miss making fun of Young and Mike with you. I hope you get better at FIFA so you can actually give me a challenge. Love you. Iqbal, I'll never forget the time I've spent with you. Those intense COD games we've had. 39-40!!! You're my bro and always will be. Ved, you're such a weird guy. But that's exactly what makes you an amazing friend. Never change Ved. I love you. Janak, you're such a chill person. I've never met anyone who's as happy and funny as you. You give off happiness to everyone around you. #Kadrionthetrack. Ansh, when you first joined, we didn't really talk. My opinion of you was pretty bad. But now, you're someone who I'm proud to call my brother. We'll have a lot of fun in Cali. Aniket, you were my first friend in Woodstock. Without you, I would never have fit in. Thank you for helping me make Woodstock my home. Vaibhav, we've chilled together so much and I love our friendship. Stay in touch and if you ever need me, just ask. Yugyel, you're a really funny person. You can cheer anyone up. Stay the same and party hard in college. Akshaya, wubba lubba dub dub. My GOT and rick and morty bro. I'll miss you so much. Don't crack before we meet each other again. Detsen, you've gotten so buff. Keep messing with Balani and Adyan. They've got nothing on you. Chowang, thank you for saving our goal-a-thon. You're a real beast and a very laid-back person. We'll see each other in college bro. 420!!! Adyan, I've made a lot of fun of you over the years. But it's all been out of love and I know you know that. You're a good friend and I'll never forget your first time in Delhi. Jinhwan, you have guts bro. You're always willing to stand up against teachers for what you believe in. Keep that mentality and don't back down. It's been fun being in the same advisor as you. Dorjee and Sherap, my fashion icons. It's been great getting to know you two. Future Virgil Ablohs right here. Mubaraq, Daniel, Ismail, Shubham, and Rohan, good luck in college. You guys have so much potential. I love you and believe in you all. Shaurya, I've been your counter strike buddy and unofficial first roommate. We've shared so much with each other. I'll miss hanging out with you a lot. Send me cool videos of you in the army. Sahil, what are you doing here? Here comes the sun. You have the best impressions. I’ll miss and love you forever man. Keep eating Doma's and stay in touch. SMJ, please don't get into honor council trouble in college. Stay that way. Sangi, Siri, Red, Rachel, and Hasumi, it's been really nice getting to know you all. Thank you for an amazing activity week and Goa trip. And finally, to all of Imperium, you will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for everything.

Shubham:

To start off with, I want to thank my parents for sending me to Woodstock. Diya: Bakna band kar bakri! Twin since day 1. Loved making boats and caves in social studies class to making Bryant and Westminster on both of our tentative college lists. Ismail: You just need to learn how to wake up in the morning bro, and not be lazy. Learn how to play basketball and maybe even cook for yourself once in a while. Pankhuri: Our 8th grade “drama,” and till now we are friends...that is insane. OMGGG have you tried the new cream from Body Shop...it’s soo good!! Khushi: It’s not fair to call you Mount Everest anymore...I am officially taller than you. We will always be on the same rafting boat during Activity week, “sitting(you know the saying), on the side.” Alisa: MY BF^3L, If I Ain’t Got You, then I don’t know who got me then. I will come to Endinburgh only to catch up on all those lunch times and eat oreos and get you Juhu beach ka kala khatta. Tanushri: Meri Kaliiii, and XXX is just the best musician.

cassidy Percevecz hey y’all! i am so proud of all of us ro graduating! I will forever be grateful for being a part of Imperium, the best class, and will cherish the may memories and lifelong friends I made at Woodstock. it feels like only yesterday we were rafting down the Ganges for activity week, snacking at cozy corner, or out of breath from the walk to school. i guess time flies when you’re having fun, and running from monekeys. i love y’all and i cannot wait to see what the future has in store for all of us.

Thanks for the best 6 months of my life guys!!! Cheers! P.S. Detsen... I do reckon.

Nathan Burgess I was only at Woodstock for two short years, but they were definitely two of the best years. I came in ninth grade and left after tenth. There’s a lot about Woodstock that I’ll always remember, such as the scenery of the mountains, the amazing food in buzz, the not as amazing food in dining hall, the hours of playing football in the gym, but most importantly, the people. The 2019 class Imperium became a family to me. I’m an only child, but in dorms, I had brothers and some of the closest friends I’ve ever had. Good luck and thank you to everyone who made my years at Woodstock amazing. Once Iperium, always Imperium.

प्यारे अब्दुल मालिक (मालू), जब आपकी पैदाईश हुई सभी ख़ुश थे, और ख़ुदा का शुक्र कर रहे थे। आपकी दादी, चाचा और ख़ानदान के सभी लोग बहुत ख़ुश थे और दुआएं दे रहे थे। यह कल की बात लगती है जब आप हमारी ऊँगली पकड़कर पहली बार घबराते-डरते हुए स्कूल गये थे। सभी जानते हैं कि बच्चे बड़े हो जाते हैं मगर इतनी जल्दी यह वक़्त गुजऱ गया पता ही नहीं चला । आप हर काम पूरी मेहनत, ईमानदारी, खामोशी, और संजीदगी से करते चले गये । सबसे बड़ी बात, आपने कभी कोई ज़िद नहीं की और जैसा बड़ों ने कहा उसको माना । अब्दुल मालिक हमें इस बात पर फख़्र है कि आपने हमारी और अपने उस्तादों की हर बात और राय को फऱमाबरदारी के साथ पूरी करने और उस पर चलने की ईमानदार कोशिशें की हैं । अब्दुल मालिक हम खुशनसीब हैं कि आप हमारे बेटे और एक समझदार भाई हैं कुछ ही दिनों में आप अपनी ज़िन्दगी और तालीम का पहला और अहम पड़ाव पार करके आगे बढ़ जाएंगे। हमारी दुआ है कि आप नेकियों के साथ एक काबिल, ईमानदार, नरम-दिलऔर क़ामयाब इन्सान बनें । आपके ग्रेजुएशन पर आपको बहुत बहुत मुबारकबाद! दादी, मम्मी-पापा, चाचा-चाची, फूफा-फूफी, नाना-नानी और सैफ़-शोएब ।

Dearest Manasvi Yesterday I read somewhere that everyone must leave something behind that was close to them. A book a tree a painting so that whenever people see it they remember them ... for me my most prized possessions would be my girls !!! Every mother is fond and proud of her kids. They mean the world to them. But in my case they are the sole reason for my being ! I am not saying that my love is the most extraordinarily awesome or I am the best mom .... but my girls are They say everyone has that one My person .... for lucky me it’s two. Two of my beautiful girls We all want the best for our kids Dream our dreams in their eyes and want them to be just happy. Normal! Nothing out of the box ... Natural In my case I didn’t want them to be like me. Not my image or shadow but someone who they wanted to be .. not the best daughter mom or wife but the best them ! For me I wanted them not to be in a race with anyone else but themselves. Compete with everything within a battle I usually lost. That boxing ring was the toughest and I wanted to train themselves not expecting to win each fight but be strong to gear up for the next. We are so proud of all that you’ve done Love dadu, dad , tanu and mom

Dear Alisa and Adyan, Our darling twins, it was the happiest day when you arrived in our lives, making us Parents. As the sayings goes: the child gives birth to amother and father. We remember your first steps and now soon to be a 12th graduate! How time flies. The decision sending you to a boarding school at a tender age of 12 was painful and difficult, hopefully it was a right choice. We are definite, your years at Woodstock and our family values would have instilled in both of you to become, compassionate, loving and good human beings. May Allah bestow happiness, contentment, success in your adulthood. Congratulation and all the best in the future ventures. Always remember both of you our eyes, left or right is your guess. Your Mamma and Babba

To our dearest and most precious son, we love you harsh. We are so proud to see you grow into the mature, talented and caring man. We know all parents think that their children are the best and there can’t be anyone better than them but we truly truly believe that you’re one of a kind.You were such a quiet and innocent child in your early years but it’s so amazing to see how you’re growing up with a voice of your own, you always speak up whenever there’s anything bad happening around you. The love, happiness and joy that you spread in our lives is so infectious. It’s so heartening to see how you treat people below and above you, no matter who they are. It gives us immense pleasure to see you graduating today not just in school but in your life too. Woodstock has been such an important part of your growing up and we are so happy to see the values and responsibilities it has taught you. We wish you nothing but the best for you always our dear son.You know sometimes it gets very hard for us to understand that you’ve grown up enough to make your own decisions but we promise you to consider everything you say in a more matured way now. We know you act so strong emotionally and mentally in front of works but deep down there’s this boy who is extremely emotional when it comes to his family and friends. Always keep this in you baby. You have a new chapter starting in your life and it sometimes scares us when we think how will our little baby boy take up the responsibilities and face the world all by himself but then we think of the matured and sensible man that you’ve become and it feels so much better.You should understand that life is not always happy and successful but it also has failures and sad times so we wish you the strength to deal with not only success but failure too. We wish you achieve the greatest heights in your life. Always remember that we are there to catch you wherever you fall down and we’ll always support you to get you back up. We love you with all our heart and soul harsh. Love Mom, Dad, Didi, Olive and Oreo

Our dearest Nandini, It is a wonderful moment in our lives to be with you as you graduate from school entering into adulthood as a responsible, sensitive and caring young person. Your compassion and concern for others, above your own needs touches us deeply. You also make each one of us in the family feel special and loved. As you walk out of the gates of the school, always nourish the solidity of the Himalayas, the freshness of the rhododendrons and the fearless spirit of the Woodstock tiger within you. An exciting world of opportunities awaits you and we hope your education and values allow you to make mindful choices that resonate in your heart. May you continue to blossom into a person who exudes confidence, joy and hope in yourself and in the world. May each day and each moment in your life provide you happiness and peace. Dadu, Nana, Dadi Muniya and the rest of the family join us in congratulating you today We love and appreciate you deeply. As a family we shall always be there for you. Mum, Baabs and Anamika

Niinna, our little baby, our bundle of joy and our happiness, YOU, our baby, are one of the most caring, loving and doting kids and at one point of time, we could clearly say that if your heart could ever beat outside of you, it would be in your parents. As you graduate from Woodstock today, we look at you & do not see the passage of time. We will try & respect the fact that you are an adult now & that the decisions you will make will be your own, but you must understand, that to us, you are and will always, always be our little baby boy. We may not be able to carry you in our arms anymore, but will carry you in our hearts always. We are in a state of complete disbelief at how time has flown and our little birdie is about to fly out far from the protection and comfort of the familiar into unknown terrains, to hopefully traverse and succeed in this new journey of his life. As you embark upon this beautiful journey, may you always cherish the values and sensibilities that Woodstock and your parents have embedded in you, may you have the strength and courage to take on the challenges life throws at you and calmly absorb success beneath your wings as you fly and soar high. May you stand tall and strong on your grounds and be grounded to your roots always. May you take positively not only successes but also failures that may come your way. We wish and pray for all your dreams to come true. May you have the most beautiful, healthy, happy, peaceful and fulfilling life ahead. May things always fall in place for you just as you desire them to... Heartiest congratulations to you, our heartbeat! Love you to the moon and back and beyond. Mumma-Papa, Dhruvu, Hyper & Buddy

My dear daughter Risika I really love u, as a father I have been harsh at times but discipline is a very important. u are now going to enter into a very important part of life and whatever we have taught u will reflect in the decisions u take. The world at large is not an easy place and only the strong survive. This is the time where u will have to understand what is right and wrong. This phase in life Will determine ur future. Be strong and focused, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up because there will be ups and downs but only the strong and disciplined will succeed. I will be there with u in all ur endeavour. it is difficult for fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to express themselves but that does not mean I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand your problems or emotions. As a father I have to plan for the entire family. being the first child u have always been close to my heart and I have seen u grow form a chubby child to a fantastic young adult. what ever u want to do in life I will always be with you. my only wish in life is that u stand on your feet and be a good human beings Love papa

From being a baby panda who could make both her sisters cry with minimal effort, to surviving getting chased by monkeys at a boarding school miles away from home, somewhere inbetween you grew up to be a smart, outspoken, focused and considerate young woman, all this while still maintaining your atrocious personality. From looking forward to seeing you during your winter and summer breaks to looking forward to all your university acceptance letters, somewhere along the line we grew up too! We are so proud of everything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished and the person youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become. We can hardly wait to see what the future holds for you and for all the blessings that are yet to come. Your race has only just begun, but with the person youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become, consider the race already won. Congratulations on graduating!

Lots of Love, Dad, Mom, Leah & Chloe
