Rev.Bro. Dr.Emmanuel Nicholas FSC and I were classmates from LKG to SSC at which stage he answered God’s call to serve as a De La Salle Brother.He was a younger sibling of late Dr.Roy Nicholas who died in the UK some years ago.
May he now rest in God’s Heavenly abode after serving the Lord in the La Sallian Vineyard for nearly 60 long years in various capacities.
