In his Foreword Prof. Suranjan Das, Vice-Chancellor of Jadavpur University, Kolkata, has said, ‘What is striking about Fr. Felix Raj is his ability to strike a balance between administrative and social responsibilities and academic interests. Surely his collection of stories will enable us to gain new strength in confronting the current challenges plaguing human society’.

Introducing his book, Fr. Felix Raj says, “Every story that I have compiled in this book is a wave from the sea of my heart to embrace every reader, so that they are touched and transformed. The stories can be used in lectures, in sermons, articles and even for recollections and retreats. You can read one story a day as food for thought”.
“Have you ever stood or sat on a sea shore? If you have, you will certainly understand what I intend to share with you, through the pages of this book. If you haven’t, then read this book, it will take you to the shore to watch the mighty ocean and its army of waves embrace the land incessantly”, Fr. Felix Raj says.
