The Salesian preventive system as we have it today was born of his creative genius and shaped  by his experience in dealing with the youth. We have experienced the  benefits of this great system in the salesian houses and schools where  we studied and were formed. We have been influenced by many a great  Salesians who moulded us and placed us on the road to life and success. One among them is Fr.K.D.Joseph. To make his 80th birthday memorable we are bringing out a book on the Educative System of Don Bosco'' .
