I had taken the responsibility to lead the September walk as Mr. Ramanathan was away. To me, it was a challenge as usually I do not go for the walks. The walk was at the usual East Coast Park. The park is a beautiful place and is always enchanting. We were 10 of us, including Uncle Kashyap. It is always a sheer pleasure to see his zeal and enthusiasm even at his age to attend the walks and take pictures of the participants. For this walk, we also had a very young participant, daughter of our young members, Anuvrat and Auropriya - probably one of the youngest participant till now.
I was walking with Uncle Krishnamurthy and Mr. Kiran. Uncle Krishnamurthy narrated his career life. It was yet another fine example of how life flourishes with sincerity, dedication and hard work. As we finished the walk, we realised that we had walked for about 6.3 kms. It is truly said that the journey of life becomes easy and pleasant with the right travellers.
We then proceeded to Arjun Madan's residence for prayers and brunch. He had created a very serene atmosphere and arranged for a delicious brunch.
The morning ended with watching Deepika, Ananya, Akash, Shiv and Priyanka rehearsing for an upcoming offering based on Gita for Krishna Manjari. Swati had taken up the challenge to prepare it with these 5 children.
It was yet another lovely Sunday which left me feeling blessed.
Om Namo Bhagvate Shri Aravindaya Sharnam Mama.
