Kolkata, Nov. 7. The inmates of Salesian College, Sonada along with all the guests, warmly welcomed Don Bosco's shadow in their midst, Fr. Pascual Chavez the Rector Major, on his arrival from Kolkata on 7th November, 2013.  He was adorned with  Khaddas, a Nepali cap and Khukri by Fr. Shaji Joseph, Rector of the College.  The Rector Major was accompanied by Fr. Maria Arokiam, South Asian Regional Councilor, Fr. Juan J. Bartolome, Secretary to the Rector Major and Fr. Thomas Ellicherail, Provincial.
The Student Clerics  at Salesian College ushered in the dignitaries with a tribal dance at 4 P.M. Around 100 Salesians and other members of the Salesian Family of North Bengal region accompanied the visitors to the door steps where a spontaneous welcome song was sung and a photo session took place.

After evening prayers a power point presentation on the theme ''shepherding'' and a video clip ''Presence of Salesians in the Himalayas''were presented by Fr. Shaji Joseph. Following Fr. Thomas Ellicherail's introduction of the person of Fr. Chavez to the assembly, a conference and a lively interactive session by the Rector Major took place.

The programme concluded with an agape meal with all the guests at 8.00 PM.

As the day concluded with the good night talk by Rector Major, a spirit of synergy with the rest of the Congregation was very evident. There was much enthusiasm to carry forward the spirit of Don Bosco into the just dawned century in the wake of the bi-centenary of his birth.
