Dimapur, May. 25. After having made a tour of the Province of Dimapur, from 29 April to 24 May, the casket left for Diphu on 25 May, the first stoppage in its tour of the Province of Guwhati.
At the Nagaland gate, after the ceremony of handing over, the casket was given a traditional welcome, with bouquets of flower and a traditional dance. Fr. N.V. Joseph, Parish Priest of Edipi, welcomed Don Bosco's Relic in the name of the diocese. The casket was then escorted from Nagaland Gate to Diphu with more than twenty vehicles and several motorbikes in the motorcade.

The grand welcome given by the more than three thousand people, at Diphu, was impressive. The two thousand and more students who lined up the around half a kilometre to welcome the relic was remarkable. The casket was solemnly taken to the Cathedral of the diocese where a solemn Eucharist was celebrated presided over by Fr. Thomas, Financial Administrator, concelebrated by around sixteen priests, and a packed cathedral joined the celebration. After Mass thousands paid their homage, which also included the students of the schools around.

In the evening the casket left for Sojong, a Salesian centre, with a motorcade accompanying the casket up to Doboka, at a distance of 100 kms.
