Walter J. Pais.
Born in 1934, to Mr John Boniface Pais and Stella Castelino, in Mangalore, I studied at Milagres School from 1940 to 1948 and moved to St. Aloysius College in 1949.
My early years in Mangalore brought me in contact with the Jesuit Fathers, and I learnt music from them, and moved on to expand this knowledge over the years.
Among my siblings I have a Jesuit brother who has been a missionary and a sister who had been a nun in Sisters of Charity. She has gone to her heavenly reward.
In married life, I have been blessed with a special gift from God, in my wife Leola, and my five children, two boys and three girls, who are my wealth. I do not count it in money, but in relationships, which enrich our lives. They are now grown up, and I am glad to see the lovely faces of our grand children, in whom so many of my dreams are reflected.
After working abroad in the Gulf for a long time I came back to Mumbai in 1985 and started composing music for the Church, and conducted a polyphonic choir in my parish, for seven years.
In 2000 I suffered a stroke and in 2005 underwent a heart surgery. These illnesses made me home bound and during this time I used my experience and talent to do something unusual. I learnt the HTML language and developed this website, which was later upgraded by my son in law.
I have tried to share my experiences and knowledge with my fellowmen, with the hope that they will find some use for it. You may be surprised that I have been having a bad eyesight from the age of 23 and had to have corneal transplants. In spite of these obstacles, I feel that God has been by my side to help me do all this. I am grateful to Him for this chance.
All I ask in return is that you remember me and my family in your prayers and come back often to visit this website.
