From Himachal to Harayan to Punjab to New Delhi

One week i spent with the friars in three states, traveling a distance but happy i did as i was able to be with the friars and experience their life and hardships. It was wonderful experience of being with them. The travel was tough as many mountains to ascend and descend......but all was well without any hassles. The region is now getting ready for the severe winter....the paddy is being harvested and the people are tilling their land for wheat, potatoes and vegetables.... 
 The candidates prepared a dinner last evening and i too contributed by cooking dry chicken masala...they were overjoyed seeing a general councilor in the kitchen....Grace of working being put into practice......an example for the young candidates !!!!!!!!!!!am i beating my own drum!!!!!!!
After almost two years i tried my hands at volley ball with the brothers.....spiking the ball is no more my cup of tea but i did try and in the bargain some pain from body got disappeared...being with the young you remain ever green...i wish i do the same after my term as councilor.....

 Br. Prasad, Custos came all the way to Patiala to take me to Delhi....he drove 5 hours but his presence was a feast for the candidates....last evening we had dinner in the garden with songs and dance...i too let loose my legs with some old dances which i learnt in formation house....they all joined me in singing and dancing....oh what a wonderful fraternal life....i wish it is all over....
Br. Prasad is celebrating his 25 years of Capuchin life. His companions are celebrating in Kerala today and Prasad wanted to be spiritually to be joined, so we celebrated the Eucharist here in the custody house. we praised and thanked God for the gift of him for the custody and the Order....Congrates.......
