The Light of the World School (LWS) in Miao Diocese in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh celebrated the feast of Don Bosco on January 31, with an exhibition to promote friendship with nature. The Theme of the exhibition was ‘Peace with Nature’.

The paintings and models the LWS students prepared for the exhibition focused on the care and appreciation of nature and on living in peace with it. Green energy, windmill, recycling,carpooling , forestation, and kitchen gardening models drew much attention of the audience. The children also held placards with themes like ‘Be a part of the solution, not part of the pollution’ and ‘Trees are the poems that the earth writes upon the sky’ at the entrance of the expo to send out a strong message.

The school patron and the chief guest, Salesian Bishop His Excellency George Pallipparambil of Miao appreciated the children for choosing such a relevant theme. Echoing the words of Pope Francis in his 2015 encyclical “Laudato Si” on the care of our common home, the bishop said the fate of our tomorrow depends on what we do with the nature today.  St. John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco, is a 19 th century apostle of youth who founded the men’s religious congregation of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) that has a strong presence in the north-eastern states of India.
