I have introduced E X Joseph, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court, who was Secretary General, All India Audit & Accounts Employees Association during 1950's/60's. Our friendship started in 1964 when I worked in AG's Office, Trivandrum and developed into a bonding inseparable relationship which continues. Yesterday morning Joseph and Kalpana Joseph (now in Udayamperoor, Kochi) talked to me for 10 minutes. We had lost contact for about an year or more as Josephs were shuttling between Kerala and US (both their daughters settled in US). It was a pleasant surprise talking to them. Last two weeks, I have interacted with some friends whom I had not telephoned for months. This is another positive outcome of the present situation. If you envy, send a message to someone who didn't respond to your message last time because s/he was driving/busy!

When he invented the gramophone record, which could record human voice for posterity, he wanted to record the voice of an eminent scholar on his first piece. For that he chose Prof. Max Muller of England (a German by ethnicity), another great personality of the 19th century. He wrote to Max Muller saying, “I want to meet you and record your voice. When should I come?” Max Muller who had great respect for Edison asked him to come on a suitable time when most of the scholars of the Europe would be gathering in England. Accordingly, Edison took a ship and went to England. He was introduced to the audience. All cheered Edison’s presence. Later
