Release of the book- ‘Revolution of Tenderness.’

The Staff and the brothers met in the Academic Block of Divyadaan at 8:50 am on 17th August, 2016. The Assembly was called on the happy occasion of the release of the book: ‘Revolution of Tenderness.’ Fr. Banzelao Teixeira sdb, the Principal of Divyadaan informed the gathering about the fruit of the hardwork of the MPh of the previous year. He asked Fr. Robert Pen sdb, the Rector to enlighten the brothers about the book: ‘Revolution of Tenderness.’ Since he, himself had written the Foreword for the book, he explained in detail about the process and the inspiration behind the publication of the book. He expressed that the stories and anecdotes encompass aspects such as the need for compassion, the power of genuine, active listening, sharp contrast between talking and listening with the heart vis-à-vis thinking with the mind. He highlighted that this book can be read by members of all faith. The Principal then asked Fr. Tony D’souza sdb to release the book. Known as the Angel of Mercy in our campus, our very own confessor then released the book and gave the Author’s copy to the four MPh students – Br. Jose Alunkal sdb, Br. Ravi Kotte sdb, Br. Felix Joseph sdb and Br. Nithiyan Gnanasekar sdb who compiled the book. This book has been edited by Sharmeela De Vas and published by Tej Prasarini. The staff also received a copy each of the book. We wish the budding authors to share their wisdom and experience as they grow in their Salesian Life.
