  • INB #N.9227 Salesian Dictionary Launched
    Mumbai, NOV. 21. This dictionary has been published under the auspices of the East Asia-Oceania Region. It has been compiled over a long period of time covering two Workshops held by translators from the East Asia-Oceania Salesian region, one in 2014 the other in 2019. The Salesian Dictionary is a comprehensive effort to compile a list of terms in current (and sometimes in historical) use in Salesian discourse in English. Perhaps 98% of these terms have originated in Italian, some in the Piedmontese dialect, the vernacular of the founding Father and most of his first followers. But as Don Bosco`s charism became established outside of Italy, it was inevitable that new terms would arise with their origins in other languages.. More

  • INH #N.9229 DOCTOR, CURE YOURSELF... following the path of HRBA
    Hyderabad, NOV. 29. On 22nd and 23rd November 27 Human Rights Activists came together to share their experience of Human Rights praxis and to learn together the true meaning of Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) at Don Bosco Provincial House, Hyderabad. They had come from the four South Indian States of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. What brought them together was their anguish that many people, otherwise well-intentioned, seemed to be rather averse to any talk of Human Rights or Social Justice. The idea of ``HRBA in our lives and works`` had caught the imagination of the participants. Everyone acknowledged that, at one time or other, they had boasted of following HRBA in their works. The present challenge was to explore how they themselves actually practiced Human Rights in their own lives. The meeting was set to consider the dichotomies in their lives. The participants had agreed to share in a structured way their feelings when human rights were violated and how they personally responded to such situations. They explored together how our early socialisation and later education and formation had prepared them against a human rights based approach. Now all were eager to explore how they could promote HRBA in their specific mission and in the way they run their organisations. They wanted to bring the UN Challenge of HRBA closer home in their lives and works. . More
