At LSR, Suu Kyi’s trip down memory lane with ‘my girls’

Studied

"Looking at the faces of the young people in the hall, I am reminded of the young people in Burma," she said.

Artwork and performances complimented the felicitation. Suu Kyi's short story, written when she was a student — Bird in the Woods — was presented through shadow puppetry by Anurupa Roy of Katkatha.

National award-winning artist Amita Sachdeva presented a ceramic Tree of Life, while Sarika Singh, one of India's first Thangka artists, presented Suu Kyi with a painting.

But the flashbulb moments came when the guests shifted to the lawns, where Suu Kyi cut a cake and planted a sapling.

Mobbed by photographers and excited alumni, there were bursts of laughter and delight coming from the rather petite frame. What followed was LSR bonhomie, with the likes of Vinita Bali cheering for the college, photo-ops and plans for future get-togethers.
