THE RETIRED LECTURERS’ ASSOCIATION OF XAVERIANS (RELAX)
“ Retirement is not the end of the road, it is the beginning of the open highway” said one unknown genius. The retiring lecturers of St. Xavier’s College for Women, Aluva who had regarded the institution as a ‘home away from home’ decided that nothing could stop them from being a part of this large family. Thus was born an organization of all those who retired after working together for three or more decades. It was Prof. Rita, who christened this association with a fitting name – RELAX.
