Mr. Rai joined St. Stanislaus in 1971 as Assistant Hindi teacher. He was interviewed for 1 ½ hours by the illustrious Master Neeff. At the time masters were expected to wear a tie and jacket while teaching. Mr. Rai started teaching the 5th and 6th Standards and subsequently the 8th to the 10th standard. He retired as supervisor of the Hindi Department.

One of his favorite memories at St. Stanislaus was when he first joined the school at the age of 26. Most of the boys of his first class towered over him and he had to look up to them. This was the time when the school still had the boarding section and the Matriculation examination or Standard 11. However these very boys though full of life were also very obedient.

One thing that struck him about the students of St. Stanislaus was that they were very loving, full of life and excelled in various fields.
