    Yes, I was a student of Eden College from 1968 to 1974. I am really proud of this college, which contributed greatly to make me a man. I was at the University Department from 1968 to 1971, with teachers like Dev Virahsawmy, Razack Peeroo, Désiré Basset, Dan Maraye, Raj Makoond, S.Balgobin, all eminent personalities of our great little Mauritius, as Mrs Indira Gandhi called it. From 1972 to 1974 we shifted to the Boys Dept at Vandeermeerch Street, nowadays a ruin! Few students of the college could nowadays believe there was the prestigious Eden College, Boys Department there! And it was there that one day Mr Balgobin, the Manager of the college, made us a good surprise. It was the afternoon assembly after lunch time and we were waiting for the Principal of the college, Mr Ramduth Jaddoo, to come and say a few words before we would be free to go to our respective classes. At one moment Mr Balgobin appeared followed by the Indian actor and wrestler Dara Singh! It was in 1972! And for the following Cambridge School Certificate English Language paper we were curiously asked to write an essay on, “the visit of an eminent personality in your school”! Few names of my friends : Govinder Irlen, Armoogum Valaydon, Iqbal Beegun, Triveni Soobarah, and from the girls department Nigla Baichoo. All are nowadays grand fathers and grand mothers. As for me, I got married quite late with a Moroccan girl, and I am the father of a girl of three, whose name is Sofia!!! You may contact me on Facebook. My name is Shiv Sumboo. Farewell, all and every-body, and long live Eden College.
