Reynold C. D'Souza

The death of Reynold C. D'Souza some years ago marked the physical disappearance of one of Jamshedpur's most enthralling citizens. Reams can be written about Mr. D'Souza's exertions and achievements as teacher, but the example he set all his life as a citizen and as a social being deserves equal attention. Generations of Jamshedpur students, which includes this writer and his two brothers, were privileged to attend his classes and learn from him the intricacies of the English language and, more important, those decencies of life which are gradually becoming a thing of the past.
