People of Raliang happy to meet Don Bosco

By Basumatary John
Guwahati, Jun. 10. Jowai, June 9: Meghalaya is a state of uncertain weather where a bright sunny day can turn into showers all of a sudden. It was drizzling almost the whole day when the casket of Don Bosco reached Mawkyndeng, Raliang. But the people exhibited patience, love and kindness in deeds and words to Don Bosco by turning up in large numbers to greet the relic despite the inclement weather. Rain was not a hurdle for the people to come and pay homage to the saint and invoke his blessings.
The pilgrims were not just the ordinary people. There were different personalities like Rt. Rev. Vincent Kympat DD, Bishop of Jowai, political leaders like Vincent Pala, Union Minister of State for water resources, Ampareen Lyngdoh, Minister of State for Urban Affairs, Meghalaya, government officials and the past pupils of Don Bosco. They paid rich floral tributes and lighted candles in remembrance of Don Bosco. The eagerness of the people to receive the relic could be seen as they fetched the casket from a distance of 3 km away escorting the relic on foot in rain. With sounds of joy, drum beats, bands and slogans Don Bosco entered Mawkyndeng in a typical Jaintia tradition. Showing more of their love and affection to the 'Father' people and students performed dances, songs and skits. At 2 pm Rt. Rev. Vincent Kympat DD, Bishop of Jowai Diocese celebrated the holy mass for the people.
