  1. I was also a scout when I was doing 8th standard for about an year. Participated in what they called a jamboree where scouts and guides from other parts of the country congregate.

    It is a very interesting movement and in Chennai we had the scout training at Wenlock Park, Chennai, headquarters for Scouts and Guides movement in Chennai (http://www.wikimapia.org/3135191/wenlock-park-scouts-and-guides-headquaters).

    I do not know the current status of the said park, post construction of the Triplicane Metro station.

    Ram: So much of history gets faded away with new developments …. like INTACH there should be more fighting to restore and avoid knock off of Heritage.

  2. I was in Bharat Scout from 1974 to 1978. It was a great experience and i learnt quite a lot from this movement. I even went on treking and camping which was a new experience for me at that time and at that age. This picture has taken me back into history and it is a pleasant memory.
