'When I look at the youth of today, I am amazed at their talent' - This seems to be the inarticulate expression of all who have been present at this year's Boscotsav. Such talent, such potential, such creativity and Don Bosco Liluah has been privileged to provide a platform to showcase these rare abilities through Boscotsav - 2016 'Heaven of Talents' .
