    Very heartwarming to see all the good deeds of you and your classmates.
    I was in the Social Services League at St. Paul’s during the mid-fifties, and I remember going around the camp area and helping the poor people living there, by giving soap, waterproof sheets to help keep the rain out of their huts, and some sweets for the kids. We raised a few annas by begging friends and relatives,
    I also went on two Social Services camps to Khanapur. On one trip we helped build a one-room school in a remote village (back-breaking work), and another time we helped build a mud road, with culverts on either side. The villagers probably completed both projects.
    Just getting involved in these projects gave me a deep sense of service to the poor. We ourselves were
    marginally poor at that time, but there were many more people living in dire poverty.
    Hats off to you and your group. Yes, Cheer boys cheer ! the spirit of service to humanity was instilled in us, and you and your classmates are examples of what was taught us. Thank you
