Life At Cambridge [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 12 April 1950

Life At Cambridge "The end of the war saw a large influx of ex-service men and women to British Universi ties. Many of the students are now maturer men and women as compared to the *teenagers' frdm school, of the pre-war days. The dashing enthusiasm of the younger* students, beside the serious determination of. those who had taken an active part in the iwar, provided an interesting contrast of attitudes to work and play. The levity of the younger members is often subdued by the solemnity, of the married under graduates, who are sometimes seen wheeling their first-born in prams along the 'backs.' There are to-day probably half as many christening parties as. there are cocktail parties." - Miss Nargesh .Guzder, from Bombay, talking in a B.B.C. Overseas programme, on her educational experiences at Cambridge University.
