20 April. The College campus is calm, silent. Students are busy with their end-semester exams. But the brisk activity marked the St Aloysius College campus (specially the Chapel, Mass Communication Department, and Radio SARANG area). It was Dr V.S. Acharya -the Home Minister of Karnataka- on a personal visit to the Chapel and to the Radio SARANG 107.8MHz for an interview!

Acharya visited the Jesuit Residence, spent some time with the Jesuits in their dining room. Dr V.S.Acharya informed the College authorities two days about his desire to visit the entirely painted Church of St Aloysius College. Fr Vincent Pinto SJ, our expert on College Chapel paintings, explained the painting.
