Guwahati, Nov. 17. Fr. Filiberto Gonzalez, sdb, General Councillor of the Salesians Society for social Communications arrived in Guwahti province for an animation visit on 16th November, 2012.

The students of DBI presented a Cultural programme in his honour later in the evening. An action song presented by the students of DBI,  on the theme of freedom from Poverty, Injustice, Violence, Hunger etc. was a remarkable one.  Fr. Filiberto was honoured on the stage by the students under the leadership of Fr. Johnson with a presentation of Japi, Arunai and scarfs from different tribes.  

During the course of the cultural programme Fr. Thomas Lakra, the Vice-Provincial, spoke of the blessings that the visit of a superior brings to the house and more so to the province.  He also spoke of the uniqueness of each of the superiors who visit especially with regard to the responsibilities they bear for the animation of the different sectors of the Salesian mission.  Fr. Abhilash also made a presentation on the activities of DBI, particularly highlighting the youth who have been trained in vocational courses and provided with placement.  He also highlighted the various outreach programmes of DBI in Amguri and Bhutiachang.

During his speech Fr. Filiberto conveyed greetings from Fr. Rector Major to the entire Province. He also expressed his happiness in seeing the students giving expression to their varied cultural dresses through their dresses and other programmes. He also enthralled everyone by singing a song in Italian, although being a Mexican himself.
