IV Standard

Arvind, Unfortunately I do not remember you which is sad, because I was thrust into the boarding at that stage and was probably in shcck that whole year. I was there from the second term on, Ms Daphne Correa was the teacher, I did well and came first in the class and the next comment she made was that I had a swollen head, I still remember that stupid comment to this day, the teachers unfortunately did not know how to encourage us. I was in Fifth A the next year and had a wonderful teacher, I forgot her name but they called her pussy cat. Jerry Baldy was one teacher who knew how to encourage to do even better, as a result I excelled in all his classes. Me and my brother Edric who was in the boarding from the 3rd grade were in St Stanislaus till the 6th standard and had Mrs Noguer as the class teacher, I enjoyed having her as the teacher, were you in a different class in the 5th and 6th standards? I currently am a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones, you can go to my website at and type in sequeira and you will find me. Tell me about yourself and what you do? my email is i look forward to hearing more from you. I appreciate the update on Mehernosh, I am glad he is doing well, he always was a hard worker. I did my engineering from IIT Kharagpur and moved to the States in 1976. Fr Aleu gave me a reference when I applied for the States.

XI A Class

Dear Everton

Nice of you to have responded, I can quite understand you not remembering me, but I hope you dont mind a slight correction, in class IV our class teacher was Miss Daphne's sister, I think her name was Dolores I am not sure now, Daphne was my class teacher in VIII C She was a wonderful lady! I owe her a great deal: my fluency in English for one, although I did disappoint her by not living up to her expectations! I remember that beautiful lady we called pussy, but she never taught me , I dont think we were together after the fourth but I do remember we were bench mates and the fact that you did come first!! you were one of the achievers and well I muddled through!! after a long career in sales and in various companies including Parle's, Smith Kline Beecham, Wipro Consumer Care, I am now an independent management consultant doing corporate training. I also teach in few management schools in Ahmedabad ( Not the in the real McCoy though!)

As for the other teachers you have mentioned they have all taught me at some time or the other. Father Aleu was another wonderful person, strict but with a heart of gold, i got to know he passed away a few years ago, may his soul rest in peace.

I will surely save your mail id and it will be nice to be in touch! its always great to be in touch with old school buddies, I really appreciate you having taken the trouble to respond to my mail.

Do write about your family and your brother Edric what is he doing? I am married, with two school going kids ( had kids late).

God bless you and warm regards

Stanislite Fredun de Vitre is man of match as Counsels beat Judges at cricket

Pradeep Vijayakar
Mumbai: Stanislite of the 60s, Fredun De Vitre was man of the match with two wickets and a 48 not out when High Court Judges played a T20 game against Senior Counsels at the MCA's ground at Bandra Kurla on December 12. De Vitre was a former Dorrdarshan TV cricket commentator.

Iqbal Chagla, whose instituted the MC Chagla trophy for this game, the third of its kind, in memory of his father, one of the finest jurists of the country, said,``My dad was a cricket fan.In 1980 a day before he died he heard about Sunil Gavaskar batting against Australia and predicted he would get a hundred. It didn't happened as the Dennis Lillee incident robbed him off that honour. He played a slam at a bridge game at Willingdon and breathed his last soon after. If one believes there is an after life, he would have been watching this game from up there.''
Brief scores: High Court Judges 158 (Sharad Bobde 50, Amjad Sayyad 23, Sham Diwan 3-32, Avinash Rana 2-22, Fredun De Vitre 2-28) lost to Senior Counsels 159-1 (Dhakepalkar 23 n.o, Fredun De Vitre 48 n.o.)

Dear Pradeep,

How about uploading your photograph on the I am trying
to picture you as I haven't seen you for quite a long time and wondering if
it is the same Pradeep with whom I had a nodding acquaintance and who
excelled in everything. You were probably 1 or 2 years senior to me in St
Xavier's College and if you are the same Pradeep that I remember then you
always seen entering or leaving our college holding a racket rather than a
girl.Were you also a CR? A photograph, photograph please!

Stanislite Dr Owen Pinto who missed Asian Games glory

Pradeep Vijayakar

Assistant Editor

The Times of Inmdia

Mumbai: Among the finest athletes from St Stanislaus still lving is Dr Owen Pinto. He turned 80 on December 3. He isn't greatly mobile because of diabetes and neuropathy and clot in the brain. Let us pray for him.

Dr Owen Pinto, father of eminent cardiolgist Dr Brian and gynaec Dr Susan and Jillian and husband of Dr Cynthia a dentist. He was among India's finest runners of 50s. He was in school in the 40s.

In 1951 around the time of the inaugural Asian Games Owen Pinto was notching the best timings in Asia in the 400 metres. But a hamstring injury during the All India University meet at Allahabad left him unfit for the Asian Games. He could also have gone to the 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games that followed but missed out to others as he was burdened with final year medical studies and could not train as hard as the others like Ivan Jacob who got the berth.

Recalls the doc:``I was running the 100m in 10.8, 200m in 22.2, and the 400m below fifty. The Japanese who won took more than 50 secs. at the first Asiad. At the varsity meet the starter allowed Patna's Sati Ghosh to jump the gun. I tried to make up darting to the tape and fell over and tore a hamstring fibre. Pandit Nehru at the Asiad told me `I want gold from you'. I told him, `how can I with this injury'. He said `I will arrange the best treatment' but that wasn't enough.''

The doctor however forgets his own pain when he recalls how injury killed Henry Rebello's medal chances at the 1948 Olympiad in the hop step and jump.``He had leapt to 52 feet. The world record of 51 ft was within his reach but he got injured and then disheartened and gave up.''

Dr Owen put behind his disappointments and aunched into serving humanity becoming a general practicioner in Bandra and Santacruz, had his children also taking up medicine (son Dr Brian heads the Heart Institute at Holy

Family and daughter Susan is a gynaec at Holy Spirit while wife Cynthia was a dentist).

The doctor also pioneered sports medicine in the city along with Dr Rajan Jain at Balabhai Nanavati Hospital Santacruz under the dynamic Suresh Sheth getting the likes Dr Anant Joshi and Dr Ali Irani involved.

Above all the doctor became the right hand man of Mother Teresa when she was in Mumbai from 1962 to 1970 and was responsible for galvanizing the doctors at the Balabhai Nanavati Hospital into action when she fell seriously ill so that she made a speedy recovery in just three days and coolly walked out to serve the people without even a discharge card!

Hi Everton,

I am in touch with Anthony Desouza, he is with Air India, we go back a long way as friends.

As fas as Mehernosh Jussawala is concerned I remember Lawerence Pinihero teliing me years ago that Mehernosh is a leading specialist, I think in cardiology, Lawrence was then head of sales for Serdia Pharmaceuticals.

I dont know if you remember me Everton, we were together and one point in time, I think in the fourth.

Nice to have heard from you.
