This note is to thank a dear friend Col Rosario D’Souza for a lovely dinner day before yesterday (22Mar) while I was in Goa.
It was very sweet of Mrs D’ Souza to have made great efforts to prepare such sumptuous dinner. All my thanks and gratitude must go to her for lovely dinner she gave us. My profuse thanks to her. I had never met her earlier.
We met after almost 47 years. We never had a chance to meet while in service. It was wonderful to recall our memories of those good old days as cadets in OTS. Those were still as vivid and fresh in our mind as it was yesterday. Our bodies might have given way to old age but our spirits saw no bounds to celebrate our meeting over large tots of Blenders Pride. We remembered our course mates and Zozila Coy mates, particularly of the No. 2 Pl to which we belonged. You had been a tough CSM, Rosario.
It was a wonderful meeting you, Rosario. May God bless you and your family.
