‘Looking merely at the sky and doing nothing is not going to reach you anywhere. To make your dreams come true, get up and begin’, says Fr. Francis Charuvila
March 31, 2019
23 March 2019: Fr. Francis Charuvila (PX) visited the college today along with Fr. Pavel Zenisek and Mr. Richard Bouda from Czech Republic. His interaction with the students began quoting Daryl Hoole, “Sitting still and wishing, makes no person great; The good Lord sends the fishing, but yu must dig the bait!”. While reflecting on this verse, he recalled one of the Scout party song “Lahe Lahe Bohibo, Ene kiba Koribo..” and said that such attitudes will not lead one anywhere. If you make the effort daily, continuously and ruthlessly, you will learn.
He said it is very easy to learn a language. If you learn one word per day, he asked, how many words would you learn in a year. The students promptly replied 365 words. But Fr. Francis retorted, ‘No. that’s not possible. There are so many bandh days and holidays and those days you don’t learn.’ As the students roared with laughter, he said, even if one masters two hundred words a year, he/she can communicate in a new language with sufficient level of comfort. So persevering, pain taking and continuous efforts at digging the bait is needed. Then you will have all the fish you need in your basket.
My hope and desire, my dear younger brothers and sisters, is that you will make use of all the opportunity that are given to you here, through the fathers, sisters and the staff along with the buildings and the plans. All these are wonderful baits and you must dig these baits and then you will get the results. Looking merely at the sky and doing nothing is not going to reach you anywhere. To make your dreams come true, get up and begin. God Bless you. Good day.
Fr. Francis can communicate comfortably in 20 languages, and has great spirit of endurance. He has travelled in the north east by cycle and he is planning to go to Itanagar by cycling from Imphal.
