    I was student of Hindu Inter College, Nagina & did my High School in 1957. My father Dr. H.C. Mirchandani (Late) was posted at Rice Research Station (Farm) on Bijnor highway. After almost 50 Yrs I visited Nagina and my college in 2006 and saw the place where I spent my childhood. After contacting some locals, I got some contact details of my childhood contacts and met them in Lucknow. Some of them are in Jaipur and Kota (Mathurs)
