I can’t correctly recall when I first met Samir Acharya, but everyone in Port Blair of those days met him somewhere sometime. Our first serious discussion was about the Moravian Missionaries in Nicobar. I was looking for information about the Brethren who came from Tranquebar to convert the Nicobaris to Christianity, but perished, except for one, due to the inhospitable climate. When I mentioned it somewhere Samir Acharya said he’s got the letters of the lone survivor with him.  I didn’t believe it. It was in the early 80s and how could a businessman possess such documents, that too in those times when internet was non-existent and letters took ages to reach Port Blair!
