Highlights of the day..

As promised, Daaji revisited those specific areas at 6 o’clock in the evening. It had started raining once again, in spite of the bright sunlight, and this resulted in a wonderful double rainbow in the sky. The atmosphere was ethereal.

 

The rains in Kanha have finally come to a halt. The sun continues to play hide and seek with the clouds in the sky.  

Daaji went for a walk at 7 a.m. While the rain showers from the skies have temporarily ceased, he continues to shower the surrounding plants with his love and care.

 

At 10.45 a.m. Daaji visited the pond in Saireddyguda village, which is three kilometers away from Kanha. He went around inspecting the work and discussed the plantation drive proposed for that area with Saravanan and Satyan. He spent time planting six trees, including the Arjun tree (Terminalia Arjuna) and Mahogany.

Daaji then slowly walked up to the top of the mountain created there and suggested names of the species to be planted as part of the plantation drive in that entire area. He distributed prasad to all the workers and returned to Kanha.

Throughout the day, Daaji was busy inspecting various places on the premises. He checked out the pond near Madhuvanam, and from there he went to the pond behind the main kitchen of Kanha. He took a round of the entire area up to the Heartyculture dairy, inspecting each and every corner.

Daaji was very sad to see the surroundings unclean, with waste materials lying here and there. He asked the team of workers and volunteers in each area to make sure everything was cleaned up. Daaji left the place with a sad heart, saying he would come back in the evening to check the progress of the work.

 

As promised, he revisited those specific areas at 6 o’clock in the evening. It had started raining once again, in spite of the bright sunlight, and this resulted in a wonderful double rainbow in the sky. The atmosphere was ethereal.
 

After a round of the ashram, Daaji returned home. He was accompanied by Nimo, the Iranian architect, and his wife.
 

At home, around 7.15 p.m., Daaji observed Nimo facing difficulty in breathing and suggested he do some pranayama. He called for Vishnu, one of the Yoga trainers at Kanha, and asked him to demonstrate a few breathing exercises. Both Daaji and Nimo joined Vishnu in the pranayama.

Daaji conducted a short meditation between 7.30 p.m. and 7.50 p.m. Thereafter, he invited everyone to join him for dinner.
