    "Maxie, What a stirring write up !! It was such a pleasure to read about your myriad accomplishments. You did however not mention one of your major personal achievements- siring three children whom any father would have been proud of !! On a personal note I often think of how much you did to help me out at a crucial point in my life. I also remember how philosophically you consoled me when things did not work out. It went a long way in lifting me out from the dumps and getting me going again to accomplish bigger and better things.
    You also write with a wonderful style. To have condensed so much into a mere two pages is in itself a gift. You truly are a person of many talents. The only area I probably have more experience than you, is in retirement from government service and a single career. The second inning is more like a one day game of cricket after an arduous and fulfilling test match. Here the name of the game is truly change and innovation at every twist and turn. However the techniques so carefully honed in years of test match cricket are priceless and serves one in excellent stead. Also the freedom of being able to play ones strokes is quite heady !! You are the kind of person who will certainly flourish and thrive in any environment. Vivienne and I wish you all the best in the years ahead.
    Do keep in touch and tell us about your plans post November. With all our love, Ray and Vivienne

    "….Though it is difficult to bid farewell to a service that has been so close to your heart for over three decades, I guess it is time that you could hang up your boots and do the things that you want to do. Read, write, trek, spend time with people on a social plane and so on. You have done the service well and I am sure your colleagues and the people of Delhi will miss you. Adjustment is difficult and does take time, but I am sure that you being so down to earth, it will not be a problem. ….Jerry.
