Bai Ratanbai Gharda Memorial Library in Bandra (West)

In a day and age when Libraries are scarce in Mumbai it was refreshing to read this in today's Afternoon newspaper http://www.afternoondc.in/epaper/EpaperPost.aspx?id=27647

Dr Keki Gharda (Class of 1941) we thank you for this fantastic library. This library is  an oasis in a concrete jungle that Bandra has become. I hope Stanislites make the time to visit the library.

 

SSESA Lonavla Picnic 2011

 [http://stanislites.org/alumni/node/2143]

All said and done it wouldn't have been possible to have such an enjoyable time without the coooperation of everyone who came with us and participated whole-heartedly.

We must appreciate Fr Francis D'mello SJ whose guidance was a crucial factor, the brothers Jeffery & Joel who were ever helpful, the Staff led by Giles & Benji for their tolerance and Capt Mel Pais who conducted a recce of the flora & fauna around the villa & sponsored a prize too.

In a very great measure to all the youngsters who gave of themselves so wholeheartedly to ensure we had a great time goes the ultimate credit. We need them to ensure that events such as these enhance SSESAs value at ground zero.

Probably the one thing that stood out for me was every single one at the picnic participating in the singing of our School Anthem word by word. The cachophony was something to die for.

I am posting here a quiz coined from info available on the SESSA & St Stanislaus' HS websites which brings out many interesting facets of our Alma Mater. Some of the posts were debated against at the picnic. Maybe we could help and clear things up. Here we go ... have fun.

An idea worth mirroring
