Story: Crump, Barry

Back from India

Back from India

Gaunt and weary, Crump returned from travels in India in 1973 with a new perspective on life. His soul-searching at this time reinforced his instinctive rejection of the materialistic way of life of many New Zealanders and led him towards the Baha’i faith, which he adopted formally in 1982.
