A poem by Aditya Nair one of the participants of the UTSAV course.

1700 of us were waiting on the first day…..

All eager for UTSAV to get under way…..

It was the first course of its kind…..

Much different from what I had in mind…..

Dinesh Bhaiyya conducted Soorya Namaskar without mercy…..

After all, we were all aged between 18 and 30…..

Bawa enlightened us with knowledge that was witty…..His way with words is a thing of beauty…..

With great Music, the first day was signed off…..

Those allergic to Spirituality also took their hats off…..

Thus went the first, second and the third day…..

With Dinesh & Bawa leading the way…..

Showing us, how ancient techniques and knowledge when combined…..

Can help us make cleaner, greener and happier times…..

How, when the youth combine to do Service and Meditation…..

Every Success, every Failure becomes a mere transition…..

There, I learnt that a smile is cool…..

To heal broken hearts, it is a great tool…..

The last day was the greatest of my life…..

It was an ‘Open For All’ and the energy was high…..

Bawa’s knowledge reached an encore…..

I sang with Vikram till my throat was sore…..

All in all, a great experience…..

With Dinesh’s resilience…..

Bawa’s brilliance…..

And Guruji’s omnipresence…..

So if you think your City, your Self and you Soul needs some love…..

Get yourself registered for the next UTSAV…..

Meeting with Bawa

Met Bawa today at someones residence in Bawdhan. I wanted to meet him since the past 2 days ,but for some reason or the other couldnt do so(One of them – my vehicle being confiscated by the traffic police for parking in the NO PARKING zone on FC road.  …..;) …. took a lot of time to get it back….:) ) Finally, I reached the house where he was staying. Met him in his room. Was there with him for 15 minutes or so.He just stared at me (for some time) said nothing. It felt very nice after meeting him. Met Srividya there too. She s going for the YES+ TTC (probably) . All the best to her for her future endeavours with AOL….:). Bye for now….:)

Happy Blogging and Jai Gurudev!!!
