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.

Fr. Bulchand

Father Bulchand was a rare individual. The first impression I had of him was that he appeared to be bundle of energy. That energy seemed to come out from his stare which seemed to go right through you. He was our high school maths teacher, and though he was brilliant in the subject, he presumed you were equally good at the subject. This is where we developed a mutual dislike. He eventually informed me that since I had no brains, it would be better for me to take up an apprenticeship in a garage. I didn't believe him, or for that matter I didn't believe any teacher's negative comments. Good for me! He was also our Prefect for some time and the reason I remember him is the example he set in repentance and humility. Thus my respect for him was renewed.

It so happened that there was an incident and that the alleged culprit was identified. That night after night prayers, Father Bulchand called the alleged culprit to the center of the dormitory. Then he undid his own belt and gave that boy a whipping he would never forget. We were all stunned and there was a deathly silence. The next day once again before going to bed, after the night prayers, Father Bulchand put off the lights and took off his cassock. He said loudly that he had made a grievious mistake and whipped the wong boy. Therefore he apologised publicly and proceeded to whip himself even more than he did the previous night. After this we saw this great and humble man in a new light. I don't know where he is now but I may God bless him.
