Met Kittel’s Great Grand Daughter in Switzerland!

11 Sept. What a wonderful day. I thought only the Swiss Jesuits were wonderful since we share a special bond and charism. Rev Dr Christian R. was too good and prompt with his help, and with Regula Lutz’s guidance I managed to be around.

At home in Hirschengraben, the entire team for Tony was too good, though they were surprised to see me, and I had not written to anyone of them! 

They sent Ralphe with us to guide us on our way to begin with. 

It was very special meet Ms Anna-Maria Brahm-Gartner, Rev. Ferdinand Kittel’s great grand daughter, Kittel who complied the very first Kannada-Kannada-English dictionary and also Kannada grammar and many other books in Kannada: the many “firsts” of Kannada language, literature, grammar and journalism! Oh, what a joy to have met her! Loved it.

Then the Zurichc Lake ! Oh what a lovely lake! Beautiful if that can describe! Then, the artistic churches of Zurich, + Kuntstahl (Art Museums): I did not want to come back; but had to, since the flight would not wait for us! 

Well, to come back to the point I started with: every Swiss we met was extremely kind to us. Almost none of them spoke fluent English; but everyone of them tried to communicate in English!

Men, women, passengers, drivers (oh, those two bus drivers were too special! When we wanted to know the way, they simply signaled us to sit in the bus, kept us in driver’s cabin, and left us at our places! No questions! No tickets!!!

 Then there were some people – they (at least 5-6 of them so many different places) left their queues, shops,
