Lakhbir Singh Rihal (1954 - 1957)

After thirty years of being a teacher and educational psychologist in Birmingham, U.K., I took early retirement and ventured forth into something new and exciting - a printing business with in-house Artwork and Design facilities. Self-taught, I was always on the lookout for improving my printing skills by attending printing workshops, seminars and exhibition of printing equipment.

Life went on smoothly until one day my wife Raj was diagnosed with Acoustic Neuroma just under her brain - a life threatening growth, which would have ended her life if it were to grow a few millimetres more. We were very worried and our G.P. referred us to a prominent neuro surgeon, who decided to operate on Raj within a matter of few days. The operation lasted eight hours and was quite successful but left its mark on my wife's speech, gait, eating and drinking. She had to re-learn all these things that we take for granted. Time is a good healer and Raj has brought all these problems under her control quite remarkably by positive thinking.

All of us take life for granted and it is only when something like this happens that you realize that there is more to life than work. This has given us a new meaning to life and we both have retired completely from work and spend most of our time travelling the world and soaking the sun when we are in Spain in our villa.

Regards and best wishes - look forward to seeing you all.
