One initiative talked about since 2007 is to name the road in front of Campion Bhopal after Father More. I have set up an online petition on this website to collect signatures of support for this project, but it will need people on the ground in Bhopal to secure support from the school, lobby the authorities and submit the required paperwork.
This could be a good initiative to get people together in 2013. What do you think? Do post your comments here or simply sign the petition on the right!
Since Father More was born in Barcelona, I thought I’d use images that would reflect his heritage. Antoni Gaudi is the famous Spanish Catalan architect who was responsible for Barcelona’s most famous landmark, the Sagrada Familia. Father More would have grown up around this monument (which remains incomplete though commenced in 1882 – Indian builders, perhaps?).
The images on the site are tiles ascribed to Gaudi and I thought they would be a nice touch. Let me know what you think!
