Public intellectual Fr Ambrose Pinto no more

It was such a sad day. A day when we laid to rest one of the rarest scholars and men is God Fr Ambrose.

The 67-year Jesuit was an eminent academician, scholar, Researcher, social & political activist especially on human Rights, dalit & tribal rights, principal of St Joseph’s College Bengaluru, and deeply spiritual.

About 3000 people from all walks of life gathered to bid adieu to their dear Father, teacher, mentor, guide, friend, counselor, and ideal.

There’s too much written on him in newspapers and social media. I don’t want to add. My heart doesn’t permit me.

All I can say is, Fr Ambrose, we will miss you. I will miss you.
