Dimapur, Feb. 9. DBCMaram ( ) : The AICUF Unit of Don Bosco College, Maram (DBCMaram) organized a residential programme with the theme ''Youth for Social Transformation'' on 4th and 5th February. The programme was also an orientation programme for the AICUFers to know AICUF in depth with Mr. Niraj Lakra, the National Full timer as the main resource person. The programme began on the eve of 4th February with 65 AICUFers registered for the programme, Fr. Benny James SDB the State Adviser and the Principal of the College; Sr. Deepa Mathew FCC, the Unit Animator and Sir Amit Kumar. The AICUFers welcomed the full timer and had some ice-breaking sessions. In the evening a movie ''Hotel Ruanda'' was shown; a movie on social issues - conflict between two African tribes and how it affects the locals.
On 5th, the day began with aerobics, morning jobs and the Eucharistic celebration which was presided over by Rev.Fr. P.O.Sebastian, the Rector of the College. The programme of the day began with the Inaugural ceremony with Mr. R.K.Peter, President of Marams as the chief guest. The AICUFers had sessions on ''Youth as an Agent of Change'' by Miss. Monica TA of the Department of History, Don Bosco College, Maram; ''Know AICUF'' by Mr. Niraj the National full timer and ''Action Plan for AICUFers'' by Sr. Deepa Mathew FCC, the Unit Animator. In the evening there was a cultural programme with competitions on Cultural Costume Show where the different cultures of North -East was presented before the guests of the evening. A debate was conducted between the boys and girls on the topic, ''Women are Equal to Men'' were the girls stood for motion whereas the boys opposed the statement. Finally it was agreed upon that women and men are equal and it is the support and cooperation to one another that makes society a wonderful place to live in and life so beautiful. There was also a Skit Competition based on the theme of the residential programme itself- ''Youth for Social Transformation'' where the participants were given an opportunity to stage the way they would bring a change in the society. It was indeed a great success and was so promising to see youngsters taking pledge to become a catalyst for the change in the society. The programme ended with the report presentation on the residential programme which was also an analysis of the programme. The programme was indeed a grant success; students took up in charge and proved that they can be strong pillars of a better society and a better tomorrow.
AICUF is a youth movement among the university students. It is youth who plans and executes their actions for a better society. Such programmes certainly enrich their personality and experience. Who is says that they are not the pillars of tomorrow?
