Dear Management Committee: When was the last time you called your Stanislites?

“Cold calling is the process of approaching prospective customers or clients, typically via telephone, who were not expecting such an interaction.” - Wikipedia

To every suggestion to those who lead SSESA the response is – ‘We should have thought of that’ – Having spent 2007 asking whatever happened to the Stanislite database – Is it updated? – Do we ever call our Stanislite community? – I think the time is right to remind folks the relevance of connecting with a fellow Stanislite.

Mumbai, Aug 25: Parents of students studying in Bandra’s St Stanislaus High School are a worried lot.

But the school claims this is a temporary arrangement for the monsoon.

Kathmandu- When Mahabir Pun returned to his birthplace after 24 years with an American degree, his own relatives in Nangi village of Myagdi district didn’t recognize him. That was in 1992. Since then he has connected the villagers to the rest of the world by establishing wireless computer networks in the hills and there is no one in the region who doesn’t know about him. On Tuesday, the world knew about the 52-year-old Nepali social development worker: Pun won this year’s prestigious Magsaysay Awards which is regarded as the Noble Prize of Asia.
