There were 11 secretaries, and sector heads of each province.Also three fathers from our Generalate in Rome, Italy. It a was a grand gathering of important people and total there were 51 members for the Week long meeting.

I am happy to see the two students of the college, Chuntalung and George who were with me at the Ravalico College Hostel, Imphal. Recalling the life at Ravalico College Hostel, Imphal, he said, the hostellers got a lot of opportunity to take responsibilities and share their thoughts and ideas among themselves. They received at various moments of the day a lot of inputs by means of talks, lessons and learning moments. However, only those that we practice become part of our learning. 95% of what is required in life is not received in the class room. I was happy to hear Principal asking Fr. Mathew C Paul to take soft skills for semester 2 and 4 students. That is very important for life. Class room learning is essential for getting a degree and a lot of lateral learning will make life a successful one.

Chuntalung came forward and shared that he loved the opportunity to manage the hostel mess for two months. It gave me a lot of confidence and skill in marketing. George Shilshi said that he liked the time he got to share good night thoughts and the time of sharing ideas with peers in the hostel which helped him to be confident and courageous in expressing ideas. Fr. Benny concluded his message by inviting all the students to put into practice whatever experiences and advises that they are getting in the college
