Again during the tenure of Fr M.C. Abraham as the administrator at Ravulapalem, there was once a new set of cutlery laid out on the confreres table. Quite happy and proud of his 'elevation of standards' he asked Fr V. T. John, of happy memory, his opinion about the new spoons and forks. He did not expect this: "They are fine but of what use if there is nothing to poke this fork with!" was Fr John's reply.
