By constantly asking "Buddhi EngE" he made me use my intellect. I can't help , but love Fr Magie

Its because of his "best of luck" we won!!!

Very true.
And his mere presence fills the environment with new zeal. Most of the times when we take the field in the evening, may it be football or tennis, he watches budding XLers playing there. Not sure what he feels then, but for me, its great feeling. I can't miss his presence even from 300 feet distance.

Fr McGrath's lasting advice to us in the 1st week of landing at XLRI was "Less is more", while introducing us to business communication. And that was before we did Fr Jesurajan's course.

Thank you Fr McGrath for giving so much to so many of us, for so long..

When I see this picture, I get the same feeling and knot in my throat that I get when I see an old picture of my father or grandfather or someone who mattered a lot to me!! The man has lived a worthwhile life and has made a positive difference in every interaction. I pray for a long and healthy life for Fr. McGrath!!

remember meeting him once and the experience was highly enriching. With thoughts to develop onself into a community leader, He guided us to think differently.

best wishes to you Fr.

Though i have never been taught by him, Fr Mc Grath to me has always been an inspiration, a man with tremendous passion and energy. Best wishes Fr. on your birthday!
