They left me there when I thought that the world was only as big as I could see. And when I left 14 years later, capable of understanding the world, I had found my own little world in the…
RED BRICK BUILDING
I used to love the red bricks of our school. One could see the red bricks far from the street even before entering the building. When I try to remember school, all I can picture is the red brick walls, the railings and the sunlight seeping through the roof. Gautami Raju, AIS Noida, Alumnus, Batch of 2013
Red. It is one of the most beautiful colours. But for me, red is beyond beauty. Red holds connotations of nostalgia. It reminds me of my school-Amity and its towering buildings, a place I lost my heart to. Rubina Mulchandani, AIS Vas 6, Alumnus, Batch of 2010
Red is the colour of love. But for me, it is the colour of numerous memories, my childhood and some of the most important bonds I have shared. The red bricks of Amity have served as an important backdrop for several important moments in my life; for we stood against these bricks posing for pictures, it is these red bricks that we leaned on when we were gloomy and low and it is these red bricks we stood facing every time we were punished.

Amidst the countless rounds of writing and editing meticulously tied by stringent deadlines, lies a ‘fine print’ of memories. Only when you enter the GT family you realise…
IT’S NOT JUST A NEWSPAPER
GT made me more aware of the world around me, carefully analysing everything before accepting it. It made my school days very special, and I have a lot to thank GT for. I miss the competition, the thrill of seeing your name in the byline and the happiness of seeing an article printed without edits. Shivangi Mittal, AIS Gur 43, Alumnus, Batch of 2013
The top spot on the list of things I miss about Amity goes uncontested to The Global Times. From all the running around to spending hours at the GT office, writing, editing, sometimes banging my head against the table, and of course, my favourite memory - being served the most amazing Limca mocktail (it is brilliant!), GT memories are some of my best memories of school.

You held my hand as a toddler, taught me to hold a pencil as I grew up, showed me the way when I faltered and made me what I am today. So, for all that and more, I wish to…
THANK YOU, TEACHER
What I miss the most about my school, is my teachers. Ever since I was a little girl, I always looked up to my teachers. They helped carve the person I am today from the toddler that I was once. The teachers kept us in a protective shell, nurtured us and cared for us as we were their own. Be it studies or the values they imparted, all of it is going to be with me my whole life.
Harsimran Kaur Khurana, AIS PV, Alumnus, Batch of 2014
I remember it was Alka ma’am's last day in school. So we had brought cakes and confetti. We gave her a surprise and as soon as she entered, she started crying and in turn, we all started crying too. Another fond memory that I have with a teacher is when we had to stay back in school for Odyssey of the Mind. Prem Kumari ma’am decided to stay back with us and even dropped us back home. Amity truly has some of the best teachers in the world. Bhavya Garg, AIS MV, Alumnus, Batch of 2014
It wasn’t fine dining. It wasn’t sophisticated ambience. It was simply finger licking goodness packed with yummy memories. I like to call it…
CANTEEN KA KHANA
My sister sometimes asked me to bring the school chowmein home after she had graduated and I was still in school. One day, a relative saw me bringing it and said, “You can get chowmein anywhere." Immediately and simultaneously, both of us spoke out, “Hamare canteen ki chowmein is the BEST.” No matter how many years fly by, the Amity pride never fades. Meghna Kaushik, AIS Saket, Batch of 2012
We used to stand outside the canteen looking for a birthday dummy to blow us a treat because we never wanted to spend on the samosas we so wanted to have. A bread pakora with Anil bhaiya’s special chai in winters are memories I’ll always cherish.
Gautam Miglani, AIS Saket, Alumnus, Batch of 2011
They showered rose petals on us, blessed us and bid teary-eyed goodbyes. It was the citation ceremony and as the showers of blessings commenced, we realised…
AMITY KE ‘PHOOL’ HAIN HUM
‘The Showers of Blessings’ - whenever I read/ hear these words, my mind is full of images. Images of the school choir standing on one side of the stage, images of the teachers standing with flowers, and images of my batchmates walking down the stage for one last time!
Bhavna Mehrotra, AIS Saket, Alumnus, Batch of 2013
Looking at the citation ceremony pictures of my juniors fills me with the warmth and happiness I felt when my teachers showered me with their love and blessings. Beware, out there in the big bad world is a fairytale land called Amity which might steal and keep your heart forever. Pragati Priya, AIS Saket, Alumnus, Batch of 2013
I held my hand to my heart, singing what my school taught me to abide by. Little did I know that the school song would become the song of my life. Even today my heart sings…
VIDYA DADATI VINAYAM
I miss the ‘Vidya Dadati Vinayam’ sung in unison, echoing throughout the corridors. I miss putting my hand on my heart and feeling the Amity spirit beating right there. Sarina Mulchandani, AIS Vas 6, Alumnus, Batch of 2014
Standing in the school assembly, singing our school song ‘Vidya Dadati Vinayam’ as a little boy, I understood little of the words but as I grew up they became a part of me. The humbleness that I imbibed along with the knowledge, allowed me to respect others and their ideas, to learn more and be a good human being. Saksham Aggarwal, AIS Gur 43, Alumnus, Batch of 2014
