Dimapur, Dec. 30. The 11th National Boscoree 2010 with the theme ''Peace on Earth'' got to a colourful start on 30 December, at Don Bosco Higher School, Dimapur. The more than two thousand participants - 1700 scouts and guides and around 300 scoutmasters and guide captains, teachers and volunteers - from 18 states across the country.
During the inaugural ceremony, the National, Boscoree, and the Scouts and Guides flags, were hoisted to the singing of the respective anthems by the participants coming from 70 schools of the country. The opening ceremony also included the releasing the tri-coloured balloons with a message ''Peace on Earth.''

Make this world ''Greener, Cleaner and Happier'' said the Chief Guest, Devinder Singh, Brigadier Artillery, a Sena Medalist, from Army Head Quarter, Rangapahar - Dimapur, while inaugurating the National event. ''Trees grow tall, bear fruit and live long when it is cared for while a sapling'' said the Chief Guest while emphasizing the necessity of care and support to be given to the young when they young and growing. While appreciating the Scouts and Guides movement, he pointed out that the Boscoree, is a movement that pays attention and nurtures the future of the society.

Fr. (Dr.) James Poonthuruthil, Salesian Provincial of Dimapur Province, welcoming the Boscouts and Guides to Nagaland the land of festivals and Dimapur the commercial hub and gate way of Nagaland called on the scouts and guides to enlarge the circle of friends. North East he said is a mosaic of races, ethnic groups, cultures, religions, beliefs and practices. It is a place of rich experience. The Salesian Provincial, Guwahati, representing SPCSA Fr. (Dr.) Joe Almeida invited the Bosco scouts and guides to ''know the diversity in North East and promote unity in the country''.

It may be noted that, Boscoree is held in every three years keeping alive the belief, conviction and the message of the two legends Don Bosco and Baden Powell, that young people have tremendous power and energy to impact changes in the world and that the society needs to instill in them love, confidence and trust.

The Boscoree is a time when the young scouts and guides get ample opportunities to improve, cultivate and develop the many talents hidden and sprouting. The agenda has been directed to the growth of the holistic individual person. Camp variegated programmes involve, animations on several topics, quiz, dramatics, games, singing, competitions in door and out of door, test of practical skills, etc. Don Bosco's vision of making young people good citizens and God-fearing individuals are given its place during the camp. One of the outstanding features is the discipline of the individual and troop. The young scouts and guides are tested at intellectually, physically psychologically, mentally, and emotionally through many a programme in the camp. The interactive, re-creative time provide to grow socially. A mature personality is what envisaged in the camp. All the camp activities are directed towards to achieve this goal.

The five-day long extravaganza will display unique, creative and indigenous talents of Bosco scouts and Guides. The event includes competitions of various types such as Folk Songs, Traditional Dances, Indigenous Gadgets, Handicrafts, Model Village Making, Quiz, Group Dynamics and so on.
