Chennai, Nov. 7. All eyes were on the 34 little Don Boscos (kids dressed like Don Bosco) who accompanied the relic casket as it wound its way to the Sacred Heart Convent, Polur, this afternoon. The FMA sisters of  Polur, and Jawadhi Hills made the event a personal and prayerful experience.
At 1.45 p.m. as the casket, surrounded by the 34 little Don Boscos, was placed on the stage a hush fell on the entire assembly and then a spontaneous outburst of joy from the children rent the air. The FMA sisters of the convent said it was the children who wanted to ''act'' like Don Bosco.  They showed great interest in dressing up like Don Bosco, a simple and child-like expression of their readiness to imitate Don Bosco in their lives; they also wanted to tell the world how much Don Bosco loved children.

The teachers kept up the prayerful atmosphere as the children, members of the SHGs and parents paid their homage to Don Bosco.
