For all the Stephanians .
"Those who use the term 'Stephanian" to include notions of elitism, privilege, irreverence, flippant wit, and deracination from the Indian mainstream, wherever that may flow, are simply wrong. They do not know, or deliberately overlook, the secularism, the pan-Indian outlook, the well-rounded education, the electic social interests, the questioning spirit and the meritocratic culture that are equally vital ingredients of the Stephanian ethos."
