Abinash Aind writes:
I am from Odisha. I actually wanted to join some priesthood congregation because these religious people are known to everyone in my region. I knew only priests who worked for the welfare of the society and for the poor people. I did not know anything about the Christian Brothers. I joined this congregation when I was inspired by Br. Sameer in a vocation camp. As I lived with the Brothers I came to know many things about them. I liked the way they relate with the people and their teaching. I have spent almost four years with the Brothers now and know many of them. They are very talented. They are good at playing guitar, singing, doing craft work, cooking etc. These types of things inspire me to continue in the Brothers and I also want to become like them. At the moment I am in Bhopal doing my Orientation programme. I am happy to be here.

I am 20 years old. I have five members in my family. I am from Jharkhand and its district Simdega. I studied in Brothers school in Bongera, where I was taught by many Brothers. I was really impressed by their teaching, their living style, socializing with all the people without any discrimination. When I saw these things I also felt like to do similar things with the brothers. Therefore I told Br. Sameer about my desire to join Christian Brothres and through him I joined. Now I am very happy to be in the Brothers. Presently I am in doing pre-noviciate course in Bhopal.

I am from Odisha and my district is Sundargarh. In my family we are six members - my parents , two brothers , a sister and myself.
In 2015 I went to a vocation camp in Kalunga and there I met Br. Sameer and a few candidates. I was inspired by the words of Br. Sameer and showed interest in joining the congregation. Thereafter Br. Sameer called me for a vocation camp in Kolkata for three days. In that vocation camp some brothers came to interact with us and they told us about the brothers. They do teaching, social work and running big institutions. This conversation attracted me to join the brothers. So,I joined it in May 2015. Now I am here in Bhopal and am doing my orientation programme.
