Self composed poem on Don Bosco by Dimitri Mallik – Class VIII A
Hateful strife filled the blue oceans and seas
Amidst mankind faith and love seemed amiss
From Heaven the Lord looked upon the earth
He saw the world quite devoid of mirth
The aimless youth laving their homes
Were wasting their energy on the roads
Thus to alleviate the on growing rift
He gave the world Don Bosco his greatest gift.
Don Bosco the father and friend of Youth
Was the epitome of honesty love and truth.
An apostle of Mother Mary and a servant of God
He taught with love and not with rod
He taught the youth t learn and pray
And do what can be done each day
He loved peaceful and cheerful din
His motto was run jump yell and do not sin
He thought every moment a priceless treasure
He loved God without any measure.
He preached it is better to correct one’s faults
His teachings were precious like gems in vaults
He founded the Salesian family which educated the youth
With guiding principles of holy faith reason and truth
Across the world his teachings spread
To the youth he became a dear friend.
O the harp of love he struck the first chord, though he was a man, the world called him a man of God.
Self composed song by Shreemanti Datta – Class VII
- Dominic Savio the Symbol of Courage
The courageous Riva inhabitants
Presented a brave penchant
To be a light to millions
And a guide to all
Planted the seeds of bravery
And that of equality
To the vast extent of infinity
The powerful and inspiring personality
Had to face many facilities
But still was firm to his resolution
Because he desired for a vast transformation
- His service as a Role Model
He always guided people to God’s path of enlightment
And filled people with enchantment
He was saturated with the qualities of a true human
For the purpose of serving all men
His modesty and carefulness distinguished him from the rest
He always fought back with the sword of honesty to all the odious test
Served as a guide
And today is a pearl to every eye
