Father Gaston Roberge is a great name in the world of film literature. Born in Canada Roberge Sir is settled in India. Currently he is on a study leave (in Canada) and is penning a new book. Here is a mail that we exchanged recently after Orissa and Karnataka started burning.
Sir, if possible don’t come back to India. i say this with a lot of pain in my heart regarding what is happening in India. Orissa is burning and my state Karnataka is burning without fire. The right wing fundamentalism is targeting Christians now.
I am slowly losing all my faith in everything. Please give a second thought to your coming back.
i am moved by your kind concern, and by your sadness at what is happening in India. we can only hope and pray that we all regain our humanness. for that we need to forgive and love.
with kind regards and love,
May the light of his heart lead our path. Amen!!!
