Arvind Rajashekar's picture


I was told he had a close resemblance to Humphrey Bogart which is why he was called "Humphrey"

He was also called "Pahunia" a term he used as a put down.

He was absolutely brilliant, taught us social studies and English.

He was my class teacher in X- C (1969-70)

His sense of humour was unparalled!!

Gerry Baldy.


Gerry Baldy : His actual name was Gerald D'souza. He had a very funny sense of humour, at times seeming to be plain stupid. But he was excellent in Maths.

Teacher Nicknames

Does anyone remember the nicknames we used for our beloved teachers.

Dr. Satish Arolkar has come out with a great list. Will ask him to post his list.

Boiler: Mr. Vargeese who taught us Physics

Beder: I forget his real name

Look your Font: Mr. Pande, sports teacher

Please keep adding to the list.

Mr Nave, who taught Marathi and Hindi

More nicknames

Amusing to recall teachers by the nicknames with which they were endearingly re-baptized by the students!


Recall other nicknames like Delilah, Sweety, Dapatta .... although I cannot recollect their actual names …. Can anyone help?

Terence de Sousa's picture

No nicknames (to my knowledge) but common outbursts

Affectionately recollecting some common ones,

Mr Tiberius - "Arre Baba!"

Mr Neeff - "... born and brought up in the cesspools of Bombay!"

and a very personal one,

Mr Sharma - "Tarance, call your parance!!"

P.S. Can the list of lady teachers have their maiden names incorporated?

Sylvan Valladares's picture

TBs famous saying that's so true

I found this very very perceptive of Master Tiberius. He once stated -
Aim for the moon, at least you will land on the coconut tree saalah!

Francis DSilva's picture


That had to be Mrs Maryann deSouza (taught French)

Dapatta = Mr Lohale (Marathi teacher; he had two sons in school one finished SSC in 1975 (the first Xth std SSC batch)

iborges's picture

Humphrey's son

Like his father, he also was gifted with a sharp intelligence (i do not remember his name, i passed in 1967). He went on to do his BTech at IIT and then MTech and i am not to sure whether he completed his PhD. Our families were acquainted so i used to get the news now and then. I remember he had a stint in the Gulf, ------and then for a long time he was in Mahim and the last i heard of him few years back, was, when he passed away. I think he was unwmarried. Very sad sad as you somehow get the feeling he was not successful in the worldly sort of way inspite of his superior talents possibly because of his/family's high moral standards.
