Principal Emeritus - Institute of Hotel Management Catering Technology & Applied Nutrition Mumbai

Oh Madam Philip…. Mother of Hospitality!

Truly young as we were,

shall remain so forever.

All because you lit our paths

and filled us with the great treasure of Knowledge.

You sharpened our senses,

minced us, seasoned us, ground us and baked us to perfection.

You blended in us all qualities,

including the art of changing ourselves

to become true Hospitality Professionals.


You wrote a few volumes.

Our experiences with you are great and vast.

We together can write volumes about you.


Your thoughts are endless,

your talks, still inspiring.

Filling in our hearts the spirit

to serve one and all.


We promise

to spread the aroma of your vision.

The spirit of Hospitality grows today globally.

You are amongst the few.

Rather, the only one


We salute you today.

Not bid a warm farewell.

As you shall always live amongst us,

to ensure

our smiles are broad.

Courtesy always will be the answer.

Appearance never deceptive,

Thoughts always as nourishing as yours.

The aims and standards you set will always be high.
