Chennai, Nov. 8. The students, Salesians, SHG members and well-wishers of SIHARAM received the relic of Don Bosco with great jubilation on November 08, 2011.
The casket was taken in procession with traditional musicians in accompaniment. Fr. Ernest Rosario, the Rector of SIHARAM, honoured the relic with a garland while students offered arathi and welcomed the relic with a dance.
Fr. Antonyraj, the Vice Provincial of Chennai Province, blessed the newly-erected statue of Don Bosco.
Thereafter, the relic was kept for public veneration.

The members of the SHGs said ''though we have not heard much about Don Bosco, the meaningfulness of his life is undeniable, as we witness so many salesians still working for the poor and the oppressed.'' The relic was then taken to the Thiruvannamalai Parish at 9.45 a.m.
