KARJAT, APRIL 6, 2011: April 4, 2011 was declared a National Holiday in honor of the Maharashtrian Festival Gudi Padwa, a time to enter the New Year Day. We made this day a memorable one for the Institute DBYS by celebrating with the students as most of them are Marathas. The day began with Fr. Xavier Devadas giving us a message on this New Year. He invited us to live a life of love, of humility, of sacrifice by helping our brothers and sisters in need of help and by being friendly to the nature at all times.

The World Cup Final left a striking mark on our hearts and minds. With India winning the Final’s which sets us (Salesians) to organize a Dawn to Dusk Cricket Tournament having seven teams. The teams were further divided in Pools A and B. Round one had six over’s each and the semifinals had eight over’s, for the teams to either make a power score or to chase the power score. The two teams named Friends and Yarana made it to the finals. Finally it was Yarana that drove their score to eighty three out of nine over’s which kept the Friends team on pins and needle by taking all wickets and winning the Final’s.

The presence of Fr. Xavier gave a boost to all the players and the viewers of this Lagaan to feel the punch of this New Year.The setting of the sun left the boys with the slogan, yeh dil mange more Aaahhh…
