19 Feb 2020: Fr. Varakukalayil Jerry, ordained on 27 Jan 2020, visited the college and interacted with the students today.

In his message, drawing inspiration from Paul Watzlawick, he invited all to communicate positively always. Whether we want or not we are always communicating. So instead of not getting involved, not giving negative communications, always strive to communicate positively, he said. When you decide to cooperate in a new initiative, you are communicating.

When we say that we are affected by what others think of me, it actually is not true. According to Watzlawick, ‘actually we are affected by what we think that others think about us. So we are not controlled by what others think. So the problem is within ourselves and we need to change. Let world think whatever, but I will remain positive.
