Tangasseri – A Tourist Haven
By Sherene alias Mary Bennet (’89 Batch)
Tangasseri is situated right at the edge of the Arabian Sea, a very unique location for a school. It is a place packed with history that we as students of MCC were either unaware of or took for granted! Our school could be a treasure trove for archeologists. It lies very close to the old run down Portuguese fort. Many sea battles may have been waged from our very own school yard during the Portuguese – British era. Sounds of thundering cannons may have resonated within the land. The magnificent light house situated nearby still stands tall and is a lone witness to this timeless history. (Wonder if that monster beehive is still clinging to its side?).
Past students like me who have moved out of Kerala, crave to go back to Tangasseri, a dream destination for foreign tourists. Reunions give us the opportunity to go back in time and enjoy the place we are so nostalgic about.
