Rape and Male Inferiority Complex

Living with clearly contradictory values seems to come natural for Indian society. Corruption and religion can coexist peacefully. Ritual purity and abominable physical dirt can live together. We are one nation, while every State and language group derides and often hates the other. We can claim to honour women, killing her with the very idea of honour that we impose on her! We can enslave and exploit our children and claim that they are our future! We can be utterly sexual in mind and body and claim that modesty is our national virtue! One wonders whether being a woman is itself a matter of shame in India. If not, why then is there so much of female infanticide and female illiteracy? Dowry is a system in which a woman has to pay a man in order to serve him and to hand over to him absolute sexual rights over her! A man honours a woman by merely marrying her! A woman has no such claim. It is the husband who gives ``life`` to the wife, and not the other way about! When a man dies his wife has no more meaningful existence. It is a shame to be a widow! For a man to live without a wife is heroism! A woman`s economic independence is a threat to the man. So the wife is either prohibited from working, and if she works, he should have the control over her money!

The following is a forwarded email from Fr. Maria Arokiam. It contains a letter with a powerful and objective message by a Muslim, Aziz Noorani, sent through the WorldIsmailis Yahoogroup on 19 September to people of different Faiths, in the context of the global violent reactions to the denigrating movie on Islam. It is worth reading, reflecting on and spreading the message for preserving sanity and humanity. Thank you, Fr. Arokiam, for passing it on to BIS.

KOLKATA, (C.M. Paul) - Was it in the corridors of Pisana or in the aisles of the Aula Magna during the last Salesian General Chapter (2008) that the Rector Major predicted India to have 15 Salesian provinces at the General Chapter 2014?

A Visit to the Land of Saints!

It was Sunday, 25th of May and the Rector Major and the General Council were just out of a rainy experience of the Feast of Mary Help of Christians in Valdocco, Turin. As if to say that the rain had come just to spoil that wonderful Salesian Feast and the traditional profession around Valdocco, on this day it was sunny. The General Council members set out for a visit to some of the unusual Salesian places in the Monferrato region of Piedmont, in continuation of their brief pilgrimage to the Salesian places.

Thank you for summing up for us Fr. Francis Alencherry`s mission report. He has done so well during the past 6 years as the Councillor for the Missions. Since I used to go to Rome every year of the past 6 years to animate the group of SDB missionaries for the Missions, I can feel the great missionary ardour in what Fr. Francis has written.
