Cherrapunjee, June 19: Rain or no rain the pilgrims of the casket containing the right hand of St. John Bosco did not mind for having to wait till late midnight for the arrival of the life-size replica of Don Bosco. Cherrapunjee has become another centre of attraction for the people not for the rains this time as it was in earlier days but for the sacred remains of the 'Father and educator of the young', Don Bosco.

The casket relic of the saint on the world tour will be kept in the Shrine of St. John Bosco for two days. The shrine was inaugurated by Rev. Fr.
