RAIN OR SHINE, STUDENTS COME IN GREAT DIVINE
By ARANTXA M. B. AFONSO
Konkan, Aug. 20. As the second day set in, the students of various schools and secondary Schools came to see the relic of Don Bosco and seek his blessings.
As the second day set in, the students of various schools and secondary Schools came to see the relic of Don Bosco and seek his blessings. They had action songs and danced to the tunes of the Don Bosco School Panjim choir. Performances were put up by the students of Don Bosco School, Higher secondary and College - the feeling of unity and love could not be clearer. ``Music is the soul of a salesian presence`, living up to this  norm of Don Bosco, songs were sung, instrumentals and band was performed by the students of various sectors. A small skit was put up as well on how the bad can overshadow the right decisions to be made in life but everyone has the power to control their decisions, all you got to do is have faith. A short music video on the life of Don Bosco was presented and some people joined in to watch. The short film portrayed that Don Bosco is a witness of love.

The college students of Don Bosco put up a skit on how evil comes over people but the good always finds a way around all evil. Their skit tried to show that in this world of division, competition and greed, to be successful can never stop. One should keep striving because that is what keeps one going and cannot do without. When you are in trouble and want to get out of it Don Bosco is the friend you want to count on.
A short film was screened giving details of the relics and what they contained. It explained how the replica was made and where the pilgrimage started and the purpose behind the whole venture.

There never were skits, songs, dances and mimes put up by the youth and it is definitely the first time that scores of youngsters came to pay homage to Don Bosco. All over you could feel the love of Don Bosco and the love for him. It made you feel closer to his spirit. The presence of the relics is a moment of renewal, rejoicing and rejuvenation for one and all.
