I was perusing the website of the boarding school Freddie went to for 7 years in India ( www.stpeterspanchgani.org ) and was quite amazed to find that the school crest and mascot is the phoenix, and that their crest bears striking resemblance to the phoenix in the Queen crest. Check it out! I've read in numerous articles that Freddie really didn't like to talk about or even acknowledge his Indian background, but I guess he must have had a soft spot for the old school after all. Outrageously, I can't find a single mention of him on the site. Read the section they have on the crest, and you may see why perhaps Freddie chose it, as well.

Pity they did not mention Freddie in their literature!

He probably did not make any alumni donations :)

Actually, I don't think he counted as an alumnus, since he left for Britain before graduating. I can't find him under any name in the alumni section. Funny that Zanzibar, where Freddie spent much less of his early life than India, boasts that he's their native son.

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

No, he was born there because his father was posted there at the time. His people are from India. His family name, Bulsara hails from Bulsar on the northwest coast of India, his parents' home town. Also, for those who have seen the pic of he and Cashmira on the beach, that is Bulsar behind them.
