‘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

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.

I want you to grow up physically, mentally and spiritually, says Fr. Pavel from Czech Republic

23 March 2019: Fr. Pavel Zenisek SDB and Mr. Richard Bouda, SADBA CZECH REPUBLIC visited the college along with Fr. Francis Charuvila of Don Bosco Imphal today. They were welcomed and introduced by Fr. Dr. Jose Palely. Anil Kandulna, Joakim Lakra and Suraj Lomga received them ‘Fulam Gamocha’ while the students sang songs of welcome.

Fr. Pavel thanked the students for the hearty welcome.   Continuing from the introduction given by Fr. Palely, Fr. Pavel said, we have one more connection between Sadba and you. Because in our language Sadba is not only an abbreviation of Salesian Association of Don Bosco – but also in Czech language means also plantation. We do not have tea garden but it implies growth – growing.  So the SADBA Logo is also an icon of growth.

A small plant that grows is likened to a Young Person who is growing. It is an expression that focuses on the growing up and maturing of a young person.  This is what we want to do in our country and abroad. That is why we are preparing men and women for voluntary service.

The voluntary services of SADBA provide both the volunteer and the children among whom the volunteer works, a special experience of growing up.

I am very happy to be here and get to know the reality in this place where many volunteers have worked in the past.  I am very happy to see you grow up not only physically and mentally but also spiritually.
