Mathew Kapplikunnel – “Father Philip Thayil: visionary and innovator (1917-2003)” in “Ricerche Storiche Salesiane”

It is quite natural that anyone who intends to profile a Salesian personality in South India would quite naturally think of Fr. Philip Thayil as someone deserving of being made known to a wider Salesian readership.

Thomas Anchukandam – “Kristu Jyoti college, Bangalore: the history and significance of the opening of the first Salesian institution in the archdiocese of Bangalore – Part II” in “Ricerche Storiche Salesiane”

Kristu Jyoti College, built and launched on its mission of theological formation of the Salesians in the whole of India, was envisioned and realized in a fast-changing post-colonial world which was throwing up daunting challenges for the Church and consecrated life in general and for the Salesian Congregation with its professed goal of catering to the young and the needy in particular and that at a time when newly independent India was seeking to find its place in the comity of nations.

Thomas Anchukandam – “Don Bosco” in northeast India – A name synonumous with change and societal transformation through education and skill-training” in “Percezione della figura di don Bosco all’esterno dell’Opera Salesiana dal 1879 al 1965”

The present paper, after having presented the Northeastern region of India with its various challenges, and indicating the missionary efforts in the region before the coming of the Salesians will proceed to assert that the name “Don Bosco” was from the very beginning associated with change and societal transformation realized through education and that it continues to be regarded as such to this day.

Bernadette Sangma – “The implantation of the FMA in north-east India vis-à-vis the service of education: ideals, answers, results” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

This article looks at the first thirty years of the presence and implantation of the Salesian charism on the soil of North-East India. The first group of six FMA missionaries disembarked in this region on 8 December 1923. During the span of time under consideration, there were eight foundations of which seven were in the North-East and one in West Bengal.

Mathew Kapplikunnel – “The implantation of the salesian charism in India: ideals, challenges, answers, results” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

The phase of implantation, expansion and initial consolidation of Salesian presence in India may be considered to be the period from 1906 to 1951/52, i.e. from the arrival of Salesians until the establishment of the two provinces of the North and the South. This paper proposes to study the ideals that led the Salesians during this period, the challenges they faced, their response to these challenges and the results they attained.

The achievements of the Salesians during their 22 years of work at Tanjore were certainly remarkable. When they reached that place, there was just a large parish with a miserably housed middle school catering to about 130 boys and an incipient orphanage with a handful of inmates.

Antonio Dellagiulia,Giuseppe Crea,Joseph Jeyaraj,Lorenzo Filosa,Robert Ramesh Babu – The significance of the association between spirituality, well-being and perceived social support of indian college students.

Recent studies conducted in India have shown that both perceived social support and spirituality contribute significantly to increasing life satisfaction of Indian college students.  While perceived social support is a major source of subjective well-being for adolescents, offering them physical and emotional comfort and protection from stressful events, spirituality enhances their purpose in life, interconnectedness with others, profound inner life and transcending of ordinary experiences.

Thomas Koshy – The relevance of Don Bosco’s preventive system of education in the context of the young at risk in India

On 25th January 2015, Don Bosco Navajeevan (A home for street children/Young at Risk) in Hyderabad received 230 young boys. They were rescued by the police who raided bangle-making units in the Old City in Hyderabad. The children, aged between 8 and 18, had been held as bonded labour.1 This is only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Mr. Satyarthi, the Nobel Prize laureate, says that the Indian cities have a lot more hidden child labourers working under near-slavery conditions. What is worse, the children did not quite appreciate their release from “child labour” and being sent to their home states: Bihar and West Bengal; many of them said that they would return to the same work later. Poverty has become ever more prevalent so as to acquire such a tragic dimension. What is appalling perhaps is society’s mindset where “Child labor is not a big crime” or a mindset which does not place children on a priority list. There is also the discrimination that “These are the children of the lower castes who really do not matter.”
