Case Study: True Freedom from Struggle : Vimukti Pothnal
I am Mrs. Neelamma W/o Mr.Monesha, residing in udbal of Manvi Talukam in Raichur, Karnataka. We live a hard life, which is below poverty line. We use fire wood for cooking our daily food. It is routine job for us to go the fields in search of firewood, sticks etc. Now the fields are owned by individuals and there are no much plants and trees where we could collect the wood. In the rainy season it is very difficult to find firewood. During this season at times we had to go empty stomach to bed. The government has some facilities to such people like us. But our illiteracy and ignorance has made us vulnerable to attain them. We only could implore God’s blessing and mercy upon us.

“I am a Teacher, I am not a soldier, but I go for war everyday and hold in my hands the most powerful weapon in the world. My army consists of naïve and untainted minds, to whom I offer my battle scars - the gift of knowledge and wisdom, my mentors have taught me before. I train my army not with guns and bombs, but with books which are just as explosive. I am not a doctor, but I treat their wounds, not with bandages and antiseptic, but with words which are just as therapeutic. I have won many battles in my life; I have healed many maimed people. I am a Teacher, and I am proud to be one...” With these feelings the faculty members and the Students of St. Anthony’s PU College & Darshan College celebrated the Teacher’s Day.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
