John Wilcox Goes to India- Podcast #46

John Wilcox is one of the founding Canadian Overseas Volunteers (COV) volunteers who was sent out into the field in 1961. He was only 19 at the time and very eager to see the world, he contacted Keith Spicer and before he knew it, he was learning Hindi in India and having tea with the president. He headed a Ghandian project in West Bengal which had its challenges. He describes his time in India as being a period of enlightenment which allowed him to realize the absurdity of the American Press and their representation of the sophisticated and important people of India. As a pioneer of CUSO, we thank Wilcox for his contributions and inspirational story.
