Joseph Melville Pinto's blog

Joseph Melville Pinto (Class of 1967)

I enjoyed the seminar "Beyond the Classroom" on 9 January 2010. I would like that the activities proposed there should take some concrete shape.

I am an editor by profession and based in Pune since 1983. As such, I can do editing work from home. Then the editing material can be uploaded by one person in-charge of the SSESA website. I am also willing to work on any editorial committee that may be set up to prepare a book or materials on the occasion of 150 years of St Stanislaus in 2013.

I do not know how many SSESA alumni are in Pune. But I can help to organise and run an SSESA chapter, based at St Vincent's, Pune. Besides, I am keen to help in any fund-raising activity, by campaigning among SSESA members. Basically, any work that can be done through the Net.

I have my own blog and am active on Facebook and Orkut, which are excellent networking sites that can be used by SSESA.

I am also involved with educational programs, like training and empowerment for trustees, principals and teachers of educational institutions. I do this work three days a week with the Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana in Pune.

My long term plans.

I will complete 60 years on 5 March 2011. After 60, I intend to devote most of my time to writing and involvement with the following institutions and organisations that I have been associated with:

1. Central Railway School, Manmad (1958-61)
2. St. Stanislaus, Bandra (1961-63)
3. St. Mary's (SSC), Mazagaon (1963-67)
4. St Xavier's College, Dhobitalao (1967-71)
5. Nirmala Niketan College of Social Work, Mumbai
6. Dept of Sociology, University of Mumbai.

7. Centre for Education & Documentation, Mumbai.
8. Science Education Group, Mumbai.
9. Lok Vidnyan Sanghatana, Maharashtra.
10. Maharashtra Herald, Pune (1983-96)
11. Dept of Communication & Journalism, University of Pune.
12. Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication, Pune.
13. Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana, Pune.

Gone to the "bogs"

This is Joseph Melville Pinto. I was a boarder in St Stanislaus during 1961-63, when I was in the 6th and 7th standards. My classmates during those two years should have passed the 11th std SSC in 1967. That's why I've registered in the 1967 batch.

Of course, after I left St. Stanislaus in 1963, I joined St Mary's, Mazgaon and passed out in 1967, from where I went on to St Xavier's College (1967-71).
