Lakkisetti Praveen, Hyderabad says,
We shall overcome
forum
360° VIEW
Hyderabad, August 28: God Bless Orissa! These are the words that are flowing from the hearts of the people. The communal violence has taken a cruel shape. Exactly, eight months ago, Kandhamal district in Orissa experienced violence. It was just a day after Christmas. That was the first episode. Right now, eight months after, its not only Kandhamal but entire Orissa is buring in the flames of communal violence that shattered the situation of Christians in Orissa. Right now, our only prayer is ``God Bless Orissa`` with a hope that ``We shall overcome.``

The Beijing Olympic curtian is ready to close within a couple of days. Beijing has once again proved that the world is not satisfied with the already existing records. Hence, a gallore of records in the sports field were wiped away as the atheletes set new ones and made history. At this point of time, it may be right to thank Beijing ``Bird`s Nest`` for its ever growing spirit, making the motto of the Olympics `faster, higher, stronger` a lived reality today.

The (f)utility of a World Youth Day...
forum
360° VIEW
Much has been spoken and broadcasted about the World Youth Day that was held in Sydney a while ago. I wonder if much has been DONE - or will be done - as an offshoot of the World Youth Day. I agree I`ve not really followed it up day by day or have been involved in events leading up to this international event... however, I have my own reservations about the whole fanfare!

An inspiring and uplifting experience with the Holy Father and the Youth. Could there be more Salesians involved and present for this mega youth event? How wonderful it would be for our own faith and our Salesian youth work.

To Auschwitz and Back (1)
forum
360° VIEW
I set foot in an Auschwitz gas chamber good sixty years after the death of Adolf Hitler. Fortunately! If I had entered there when that monster was alive, I would by now have been part of history. An international association of missiologists to which I belong held its plenary sometime back in Poland. No one goes to Poland without visiting Auschwitz and Jasna Gora and of course, Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope John Paul II.

A Visit to the Land of Saints!
forum
360° VIEW
It was Sunday, 25th of May and the Rector Major and the General Council were just out of a rainy experience of the Feast of Mary Help of Christians in Valdocco, Turin. As if to say that the rain had come just to spoil that wonderful Salesian Feast and the traditional profession around Valdocco, on this day it was sunny. The General Council members set out for a visit to some of the unusual Salesian places in the Monferrato region of Piedmont, in continuation of their brief pilgrimage to the Salesian places.
