Good to know that they are learning and implementing something from their marketing partner's book.

Is this going to be done only in Pune, or extended to other cities where Don Bosco institutes exist? I guess Bangalore with the proximity to Toyota, and Baroda with proximity to the General Motors plant might be good locations to do this--the companies do good, get some PR mileage out of it, and the boys benefit by getting good training that they can use to earn their livelihoods. With the growing number of cars on the road, the demand for trained mechanics ca only increase.
