Mr Antony Joseph — In Memoriam

Mr Joseph was not unmistaken. You knew where he stood on any matter. He was not afraid to say his mind despite the cost to his career, societal standing, or reputation. With Mr Joseph, you were never in doubt. I did not say he was always right but at the least, you knew where he stood on a matter.

Three stories I would like to tell you. First is about his love for his wife. For me, I can see that keeping love alive can be a challenge, but Mr Joseph kept it alive for more than 50 years. Let me tell you the story I have told before. I titled it “My Girl”.

Apart from his devotion to his wife of more than 50 years. He was someone that wanted more for others and he did not hold back in those moments. This is the second point that I want to make.

He was comfortable in the trenches. He was comfortable in the backstage. He was comfortable in others taking the shine. He was comfortable to make people like me look like a million stars but him, the very mud of the earth. He was ready to be the kidney so that you might have a healthy body. He was the spine and was not interested in being the face. He preferred to be the clay that is used to make fine pottery. That was Mr Joseph.

That is the man I chose to celebrate.
