MUMBAI, AUG 13, 2016: Father Maria Arokiam Kanaga, Regional Councillor for South Asia released the book, "Revolution of Tenderness" written by the Brothers of Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy, Nashik, edited by Sharmeela De Vaz, and published by Tej-Prasarini, Don Bosco Communications.
Father Kanaga complimented the brothers for writing significant reflections and stories on the theme of Mercy. He enumerated that as Salesians, the publishing of a book is of prime importance and it has great benefits for readers across the world. This is a good souvenir for the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Father Robert Pen, Rector of Divyadaan, thanked Father Savio Silveira - Vice Provincial of the Salesian Province of Mumbai - for encouraging the brothers to write their reflection and pen their thoughts on the Year of Mercy.
It was a great opportunity for the brothers to publish a book alongside the seasoned editorial staff from the Publication House of Tej-Prasarini.
'Revolution of Tenderness' is a collection of inspiring short stories penned by the young, zealous Brothers of the Salesian Order, raring to share their life-changing experiences with the rest of the world.
The stories encompass aspects such as the need for compassion; the power of genuine, active listening; the sharp contrast between 'talking and thinking with the heart vis-à-vis thinking with the mind' and amplifies examples of magnanimity and the logic of justice and grace.
A book of this kind will urge readers to be more proactive, in righting wrongs, so that we can reach out to a world that is almost at a 'tipping point', simmering in anticipation of an explosion. The 'Doomsday Clock' is ticking and the need to 'heal the world, make it a better place', is the book's war cry.
The cover design for the book has been conceptualised by Sathish Paul, sdb; book design and typeset by Surekha Gangurde; edited by Sharmeela De Vas; proof read by Verona Vaz and Father Mathew Couthino; printed at Intouch Graphics, Mumbai.
'Revolution of Tenderness' is a paper pack edition, 150 pages, ISBN- 978-81-87060-59-8, cover price of INR 150/-
