I am Katherine Christy, a visitor from the US, at Don Bosco Navajeevan, Ramanthapur (Hyderabad). Here`s my viewpoint of a rather enriching day involving children engaged in making the world a better place through their membership in the Human Rights Clubs. 27 April 2015 marked the conclusion of the Human Rights Clubs summer camp for Government school children hosted by PARA (People`s Action for Rural Awakening) and partnered by Don Bosco Mondo. In the past year, PARA has initiated 428 human rights clubs spread across 7 districts in 366 state run schools of the two states for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. There is total membership of 20,259 students in the clubs.

WITH HUMOUR YOU CAN FIGHT MANY A BATTLE  - 1 Comments

In primitive days nations settled their disputes only through wars. In the feudal times gentlemen settled all their quarrels with gun duels as if bullets could decide the justice or otherwise of things . In all dictatorships the army and suppression are of critical importance for the survival of the regime. Modern man tries to settle differences through the more civilized ways of diplomacy and dialogue . In his arsenal of non-lethal weapons humour occupies the prime place in negotiating life`s pot holes both in the public domain and in private lives. For the civilized man a sense of proportion of things and a razor sharp intellect replace the savage`s fist of fury . Perhaps like our shrinking integrity in public life our sense of humour is taking a beating and intolerance is becoming pervasive and shooting up by the day. Like the uncommon common sense it is becoming rare to find.

KOLKATA, (C.M. Paul) - Was it in the corridors of Pisana or in the aisles of the Aula Magna during the last Salesian General Chapter (2008) that the Rector Major predicted India to have 15 Salesian provinces at the General Chapter 2014?

One man threatened to fast, and the media was seduced to give him front page covering day after day and the government bent backwards to appease him until they learned he was pulling a fast one on them.

In the Human Rights efforts cannot be really measured but we can only `feel` it and experience it. This only necessiates the creation of child Rights watch Group and Human Rights Groups. We shall all commit ourselves towards declaration of zero Tolerence of Human Rights violence.

Vote for vote sake (the Pulse of India)
forum
360° VIEW
For the first time in the democratic history of India after independence, the Indian citizens have become aware of the Right to Vote. This is indeed a happy sign, a progressive note in the thinking pattern of Indian folk. Watching the television channels and reading the newspapers before the elections, I got an over all impression that for the first time ever, there has been a great move in Indian citizens to exercise their right to vote. Thanks to many organizations who are instrumental in achieving this cause.

The Almighty Principals Left Alone with None
forum

By Fr. Anand Muttungal (The writer is the PRO & Spokesperson for the Catholic Church in Madhya Pradesh. This article is his personal view). I am forced to highlight the plight of the so called `Almighty Principals` who run the catholic schools while they are being assulted. The schools are really run in the name of the Christians but the Christians are treated as extra burden to the School.
