Vote for vote sake (the Pulse of India)
forum
360° VIEW
For the first time in the democratic history of India after independence, the Indian citizens have become aware of the Right to Vote. This is indeed a happy sign, a progressive note in the thinking pattern of Indian folk. Watching the television channels and reading the newspapers before the elections, I got an over all impression that for the first time ever, there has been a great move in Indian citizens to exercise their right to vote. Thanks to many organizations who are instrumental in achieving this cause.

Easter Season specially calls us to relive this Emmaus experience. It is a step by step process in which Jesus revealed himself. This Emmaus episode teaches the whole treatise of Revelation in a simpler and convincing manner.

Walking an Extra Mile...
forum
360° VIEW
Recently once traveling in the train, I have come across a situation where the aspect of spirituality was put to question. I happened to witness a situation where an youngster took out his laptop and started showing a few film clippings to his nephew and niece who were with him(I only heard them calling him Uncle). After a couple of minutes, in my curiosity, I too became a viewer of the same since being in the same berth. As we were lost in watching, a boy aged around twelve came begging. At the first instance, none of us paid attention. As the boy pestered asking for some money, the youngster got annoyed and chased him. As I got diverted from watching, I happened to see the boy in his misery, both the legs swollen. He dragged himself from our coach to the next with great difficulty. It was only later, that I realized the boy had no more strength to walk and fallen asleep near the toilets. This incident triggered in me a sense of being one with those in need. Though, I myself never bothered in the beginning, later, the thought kept ringing in my mind.

RETREAT AT VARANASI - THE HOLY CITY OF INDIA
forum
360° VIEW
A trip to Varanasi was a very soothing one and it stimulated a kind of immense joy in the hearts of the first year Brothers of Salesian College Sonada, Darjeeling. The sole purpose of stepping into the so-called Holy City was to have a graceful experience in Matridham Ashram which is located in the suburbs.

Renounce to Regain (Spirituality of Lent)
forum
360° VIEW
The season of Lent, a season of Grace is at our spiritual door step again. The aftermath of the financial breakdown and the bankruptcy of the entire world economy make rather a meaningful reflection as we go to begin the season of Lent. Holy Mother the Church invites all of us to rethink of our spiritual lives and calls us to a life of renunciation during the season of Lent.

What`s in a Name?

When I was a little boy, my mother took me for admission to a local school. Thank God this was many years ago, when there was no rush for admissions. Moreover, there was no such thing as commercialised education or even if there was, the common people did not know about it. Anyway, I got admission for the asking.

The Almighty Principals Left Alone with None
forum

By Fr. Anand Muttungal (The writer is the PRO & Spokesperson for the Catholic Church in Madhya Pradesh. This article is his personal view). I am forced to highlight the plight of the so called `Almighty Principals` who run the catholic schools while they are being assulted. The schools are really run in the name of the Christians but the Christians are treated as extra burden to the School.

``How shall we greet one another as 2009 dawns? `May you not fall a victim of a terrorist attack!` `May God protect you from the dangers of a living place like Kandhamal!` `May you be safe in a hospital!` `May God protect you in a train station!` Strange as it may sound, another wish or greeting too sounds appropriate: `May God protect us from our media!` (New Leader, January 1-15, 2009)
