Chennai, Nov. 7. The students of Don Bosco ITI, Polur,accompanied the casket containing the relic of Don Bosco from the parish church to the ITI centre in prayerful procession. Along the route, they hailed Don Bosco with various expressions of their love and esteem for him.  
It was beautiful to see the students in their uniforms  recalling to mind the vision of Don Bosco who pioneered technical education, especially for the poor youth of his times.

When the relic reached the stage at Don Bosco ITI Institute, the students maintained silence showing their respect and love for Don Bosco. People all faiths from the surrounding villages had assembled at the ITI centre to have a glimpse of Don Bosco's relic. As they filed past the casket, one could see the simple but deep esteem and veneration they had for Don Bosco, a man of god.
Around 1.30 p.m. the relic was then taken to Sacred Heart Convent, Polur.
