Bishop of Mangalore Diocese Dr Peter Paul Saldanha on Sunday , 6 September 2020, blessed the newly-built Assisi Studio for recording at Jail Road, Bejai. The studio was inaugurated by Very Rev Dr Alwyn Dias, the Provincial of Holy Trinity Capuchin Province Karnataka. Fr Chetan, Capuchin, the PRO of  Udupi Diocese anchored the programme.

The Dignitaries present on the dais were Bishop Peter Paul Saldanha, Fr Alwyn Dias the Provincial of Holy Trinity Capuchin province Karnataka, MLA of Mangalore City South Shree Vedavyasa Kamath, Managing Director of Daijiworld Media Mr Walter Nandalike and famous Music Director as well as Producer Mr Ashwin Pinto. Fr Stephen Dsouza, Ast Manager of Assisi Press welcomed the dignitaries.

Following the inauguration and blessing, the guests were entertained in the studio with instrumental tune of the Hindi song "Ek Pyar Ka Nagama Hai' sung by Lata Mangeshkar, led by group leader and renowned musician Patrick Pereira on guitar, Prakash Karkala on Saxophone, Ashwin Sequeira on Drums, Floyd Pereira on Bass guitar and Dr Senek D'souza on rhythm guitar.  

In his inaugural address, Bishop Peter Paul Saldanha said, "These days communication plays an important role in the world. Communication skills are very essential in life, because if we do not communicate, there won't be unity. Without communication, we will not be able to understand each other. Humans communicate with other not only by face-to-face communication, but also by giving information via the internet and printed products such as books and newspapers. Many people believe that the significance of communication is like the importance of breathing. Indeed, communication facilitates the spread of knowledge and forms relationships between people".

Bishop further said, "Communication helps to spread knowledge and information among people. Besides, the advent of the internet not only allows people to have better access to knowledge and information in all fields, but also makes it easier and faster to contact with the people around the world. Undoubtedly, the sharing of knowledge and information process cannot function without communication. Moreover, communication is the foundation of all human relationships. At first, strangers start talking and getting to know each other, and then the relationships are formed when they have more interaction and communication. Communication helps people to express their ideas and feelings, and it, at the same time, helps us to understand the emotions and thoughts of others".

While concluding, Bishop said, "It is no doubt that communication plays a vital role in human life. It not only helps to facilitate the process of sharing information and knowledge, but also helps people to develop relationships with others. Therefore, the importance of communication cannot be underestimated. Every day, we communicate with a lot of people including our families, our friends, our colleagues, or even strangers. We should learn how to communicate effectively to make our lives better. If we learn communication skills, we can even talk to God. It should also be noted that the media plays an important role in the field of communication. And therefore, the Capuchin Fathers decided to have this 'Assisi Studio' with an aim to communicate with each other and unite hearts. My heartfelt wishes to the entire team at the Studio".

Also speaking on the occasion, MLA Vedavyas Kamath said, "I am confident that Assisi Studio will play an important role for those who want to unleash their singing and music talents. In the present world, everyone looks for a variety in the music field, and this studio will help them exhibit their hidden singing or music talents, and make use of this quality platform to record their art and explore other areas. Today people are eager to listen to positive news, feel positive energy, where presently the digital world partially helps everyone to remain positive. It would be helpful if Assisi Studio strives hard to keep people positive with their new venture and new projects. My sincere wishes for the success of this Studio".

In his speech Fr Alwyn Dias said, "This studio was set up on the principles of St Francis Assisi. My sincere thanks to everyone who helped in starting this unique studio in the city.  The success of the studio was due to a large number of donors, well-wishers and generous people, and I look forward to their unstinted support and encouragement in future too. Through this Studio, we want to convey a positive message to the society, and welcome everyone to the studio to experience  the state of the art technology and feel the difference."
