NASHIK, FEBRUARY 2, 2011: Divyadaan, Nashik, was honored to share the joy and celebration of Don Bosco with the youth of the 'K2K Yatra', an initiative by 'Youth Activ8 Foundation' and the 'ICYM'. This encounter of the Salesian seminarians and the youth was arranged by Fr. Anton D'Souza, sdb, the Diocesan Youth Director of Nashik Diocese.
The day commenced as the youth and the community of Divyadaan joined in celebrating the Holy Eucharist. The main celebrant of the Eucharist, Rev. Fr. Savio D'Souza, sdb in his homily helped the assembly to understand the deep connection Don Bosco shared with the youth and the zeal in which he went about doing his work for the love of his beloved boys. He expressed his joy and stated that the youth were the very reason of the existence of the Salesian apostolate. He thanked the K2K Yatra for having made a stop here in Divyadaan to honor the name of Don Bosco.
As the day progressed, the youth joined the brothers in the lightening tournament too. The day climaxed as the youth and the brothers from Divyadaan gathered to celebrate the gift of Don Bosco through a quiz competition. Moments of sharing and interaction followed.
The K2K youth members presented to the Salesians the purpose of their journey; that is to promote peace and harmony in the nation by helping youngsters to have mutual dialogue and understanding. They shared their insights, learnings and suggestions to build a stronger youth apostolate. The brothers didn't hesitate to ask them questions regarding their convictions of the yatra, the growth processes and also the followings of the yatra, to which the youth willingly responded. The enthusiasm of the youth was almost contagious as their zeal caught on like wild fire and the brothers from Divyadaan responded by presenting the Strenna of the Rector Major to the 'K2K' youth in a very creative way.
The K2K group consisted of the animating director and the ICYM president. The youth also held important posts in the troop but did so very humbly. All the members were from different parts of India. All together it was a conglomeration of persons, cultures and ideologies that gave them their identity. The Salesians did enjoy talking to the youth, who were overwhelmed by the love and hospitality. The brothers were inspired by the youth who had committed themselves to help their peers. At the end of the day all wished and prayed for the success of the trip with the blessings and intercession of St. John Bosco.
