Mumbai, May. 30. ''Petals and Pebbles - In Human Parables'', a book by Fr. Elias Dias was launched on May 24, 2013, the feast of Mary Help of Christians at Don Bosco Matunga, Mumbai, by the Rector of the Shrine, Fr. Edwin D'Souza, during the Feast day Mass. Releasing the book he congratulated Fr. Dias for the splendid compilation which, he said, would definitely benefit educators and impart values for everyone.
Fr. Joaquim Fernandes, director of Tej-Prasarini, the publisher of the book pointed out to the use of new media technology in the production of the book. ''This book was edited in Rome by Fr. Christopher Valentino and proof-read in Mumbai while William Fernandes did the cover design in Mumbai; and the book designing and page layout was done in New Jersey, USA by Rochelle Rodricks,'' said the director of Tej-Prasarini, Don Bosco Publications, giving insights into the book's production. He said that the whole co-ordination and corrections were done using the new media applications Skype and the Gmail facility through video integration.

Fr. Dias, the author, revealed the motivation behind his writing the book saying,''Moral values have eternal significance and are highlighted here with the help of popular anecdotes and amusing parables''. Every story and parable has a moral behind it and carries loaded lessons for life to help deal with human foibles and weaknesses to which they point, he added.

Priced at Rs. 200/-, the book contains a series of ''ruminations on moral values for moments of weaknesses in our daily lives'', said the author who is also a veteran Salesian educator.

The 63 parables contained in the 360 pages book is a veritable goldmine of resource material for everyone who is engaged in education and in imparting moral and religious values.

The book is available at:
Don Bosco Communications,
