    Congrats Fr. Melvin.
    My late DAD studied ta St. Aloysius College in the 1940's and was sent to Pakistan by a British Bank in 1946. He served for 34 years and died in Pakistan . My Mom died to and is buried there. All of us 5 brothers and sister got out of the suffocation of Religious tolerance and settled in Canada.
    We have vivid memories of our visits especially to meet our uncle Alphonso of Society of St. Paul press in Bandra, Bombay.

    Good luck in your new assignment. Do get in touch.
    Regards
    Flavian
