A glance around the interesting interiors of St. Anthony's Church in Vakola yesterday evoked the thought that if Eunice de Souza were here, she would have told her students about the architecture style used in the church. Once she said that, and if her Literature students from St Xavier's College would have seemed quizzical, she would have said with her trademark trenchant wit, "Read about it." (This was in the pre-Google days, though it would be hard to imagine Eunice saying Google it) And then, "I want absolute minimum literacy from this class."
