Under the moon light with cool breeze around ones face soothingly whispered echoes of joy, the times of togetherness to be in bond of relation with one another under the name of DON BOSCO was the focal point of celebrations atmosphere.

The rhythematic steps according the fine tunes of Navajeevan boys were cream part of the days celebrations for which crowed roared aloud with wow of admiration for their performance. The play that they staged with title ‘Pay it back’ depicted the lives of the street children and their achievements in life with the help of the Salesians.
