was born in
on September 9, 1953. My parents were Samuel and Annamma Oommen, and I grew up in a family of nine. We were not wealthy but I had a good and happy childhood.
I am grateful to my parents who gave me a good upbringing, and worked hard so that I could have a good education.
My brothers and sisters are : Annie, Philip, George, Susan, Sukumar, Alex, Fred and Tom. I am the eighth in the family - younger to Fred by two years.
Tom passed away a few years ago and I miss him!
most important person in my life is, of course, my wife, Lulu, Elizabeth Eleanor (Kail). I met Lulu in 1975 when I was doing my Masters' in Bangalore. This is how she looked then!!
