This account covers a number of milestones in the history of the Association. From the early formative years (1988 to 1991) to the hosting of the World Anglo-Indian Reunion III (1992 to 1995) and the building of the Cultural Centre (1996 to 1998), it is a record of the diligence, resilience and dedication of many in the community who helped us achieve what we have today.
The welfare work undertaken by the Association and which continues to this day, is reported on as is our involvement in international and national Anglo-Indian community affairs. In addition, we have not forgotten our office volunteers, who have kept the lines of communication open and the wheels of the Association turning.
A genealogy of the Executive Committee, Sub-committees and Office Bearers from 1988 to 2018 is included in Appendix 4 as a mark of appreciation and gratitude to those who guided the Association during this time.
The Association Chronicles, though an account of the past 30 years, is in reality about people, many of whom are still with us today. It is a record of the pioneering spirit of Anglo-Indians who work best when building for the community whether it is for the railways, schools, institutes or associations. This publication is a testament to their perseverance and hard work and the fact that Anglo-Indians can work together in harmony.
The chronicles sub-committee, with the help of other members, combed through Executive Committee files and records and unearthed gems of the Association, old but significant events, recorded it in a way that illustrated the wisdom, love and devotion that is an embodiment of the Association. This document is written in an informal form, designed to be easily read, yet constructed so that it will stand as a testament to our proud history.
