The group at Nere Village (SKS Chakshu Foundation)
Went with Ms Maya Shahani to the beautiful residence of Mr Nirbhay and Ms Urmila Jain who with the help of the Rotary have adopted around 64 villages. Each village has a population which ranges 150 to a 1000 residents.
I am told that to empower the women was a mammoth task. They had to convince them to come when the children were in school and the house chores were done...
Sometimes those who had already experimented would attend the other villages to empower the other women...
IN the picture on the top you can see me with the 'President' They sang a beautiful song whose message was that we have to build a better beautiful world!

Ms Sangeeta Jani conducting an Art of Living Course at Nalanda Parel after we performed the puja...
We opened Nalanda...At Kamala Mills Compound, Lower Parel, it is over a 3000sq ft hall to bring knowledge and empower humanity...the concept of ancient Nalanda...A treat for the mind body and soul...
It is a culmination of 5 yrs that We did in the Times of India...
24th of March 2007
I was on the dais with the Governor of Maharashtra and so many dignitaries...but it is not the joy of the ego...it is the joy of knowing that this is what I was meant to do in life and that God carried me through....and that more than the people, He has honored me
Then I got the following via email:
As consciousness shifts, there are certain requirements for those who choose to shift as well. Those requirements are of Universal Law, and cannot be denied...
These keys are based upon the sacred geometry of the star tetrahedron..
The Keys are as follows:
We must acknowledgement our self perfection –
Acceptance of the journey for which you have come – why fight the very things which you have come to learn?
Accept Your Power – You are great and mighty. True Power comes not of ego, but the collective One of your Spirit... True Power is that which is Love, the intentional living as co-creator from within all opportunities that are offered you.

This is my Krishna. I left Him for 'looking after' with my so called 'Loved ones who had at that time (and at this time) were/are not on great terms with me due to probably old Kaarmic debts. 'The loved ones' wanted to Keep my Krishna...So I left Him with them... and they returned Him to me battered and bruised (Leg and fingers broken) I believe that my Krishna took the hits that were meant to be for me and As such... No I have not put my Krishna into the Sea...I have kept Him. He will go with my ashes when I go and He steers me accross the Ocean of Samsaara.
Also see photos and read how I celebrated Women's Day.
