Leaf from Katapadi......
Holy Cross Students Home at Katapadi in the district of Udupi in the state of Karnataka, India is a religious formation house of the Province of South India in the Congregation of Holy Cross.  True to the google view, the location is picturesque with a lot of greenery and  coconut plantations.  Proximity to the developing little town, parish and college has made the place desirous to reside at; specially for the youngsters who wish to be part of the great legacy of Holy Cross. Monsoon rains are an experience of a joyous kind and the summer too makes known her presence. Walking up the road one is not to miss the ‘aroma’ of the fish, a delicacy unmatched at this part of the world. In a sense, life here is truly coastal!
