The Bell

No matter how simple or strange, traditions in our Club are still adhered to !

Near the Club Shop there is a roundabout with a Mango tree growing in it. Attached to the tree by thick wires is a innocuous and quaint looking piece of metal (looks like a small piece of a rail track). This metal piece had a 9 inch
steel bolt with it, which is now lost, used as a knocker.

This was used by the “chowkidar” to ring it like a bell to inform the staff that its time for lunch or for end of day’s work.

This tradition probably started before the advent of electricity in the Club. This bell was rung for more than 100 years till the year 2007, when a new brass bell was installed near the Gymnasium and is still rung regularly.
