“To all my customers and well-wishers.
Thanks to you all for giving me opportunity to serve you all for the past 3 and ½ wonderful years in Nelson. I am returning to India. Many of you will know about my intention to open a school for disadvantaged children. Planning is well underway.
My last day of trading at the Wakatau Mini Mart in Hardy Street will be Wednesday 31st July.
From Monday 21nd July I will be cooking a curry or dhal and rice meal and Masala Dosa every day at lunchtime. I hope you can all come in to say ‘ bye for now’. All I ask is a donation (about $5) which will go towards financing the school.
I also have a growing list of people who have put their names in the book at the front of the shop with a view to visiting the school in India as volunteers. Please add your name if you are interested in joining us and sharing your skills at some stage.
