Fr. VM Thomas lays Foundation for New College Building at Bongaigaon
By Fr. Bivan R. Mukhim
Guwahati, Mar. 24. The foundation stone of Don Bosco College, Bongaigaon was laid by Fr. V.M Thomas, Provincial on 23rd March. In his introductory remark before the blessing, he said that the new  undertaking and ceremony is held in the month of March, dedicated to St. Joseph who will also protect and guide the endeavours as he did in the case of the Holy Family. He announced that the construction will be largely funded and carried forward by Fr. Damien Basumatary and the community of Kokrajhar.
Fr. Damien Basumatary while speaking recalled the unfolding of the dream. He spoke about the initiatives over the years in purchase of the land, appreciated the efforts of the provincial, the efforts of the provincial council, Fr. Francis Basumatary and other confreres and collaborators in giving a definite shape to the project of a Don Bosco College at Bongaigaon. Fr. K.J Thomas, Province Economer, spoke about the reality of a 'dream come true' for the Salesians of the province of Guwahati. He expressed the hope that this institution grows and develops into a quality institution of higher education for the BTAD and lower Assam region.
The function was attended by the confreres of BTAD region as well as the staff and students of Don Bosco Junior College. The FMA Economer of the province of Guwahati, Sr. Jessy was also present for the occasion along with the superior and community of Kokrajhar.  The FMA sisters are close collaborators in the College project. Besides sisters, there were also some neighbours and catholic laity present for the blessing. Fr. Alex Mathew, the principal of the Jr. College, proposed the vote of thanks.
