One of the highlights was meeting the family of Lakshmi and Nagaraj Varma. Watermelon farmers, they have raised three sons, ages 21, 22 and 24, who are all college graduates. What a remarkable achievement! Working six acres of land, Farmer Varma raises vegetables and fruit to support his family. Only one son, Ravi, is sponsored by CFCA. Ravi is pursuing a degree in business. The eldest son (nicknamed Funny) is working as a computer teacher and on a PhD in psychology. What a great leap in the history of India, in one generation, to achieve this advancement!
p.s. On Easter Sunday, my friends Clement and Sr. Johncy wanted to go to a tailor shop. For the working mother who owns and operates it, the day was not a day of rest. But as you can see, it was for her son!
