February 25, 2012


A contingent of over 1500 devotees from Adilabad arrived at Prasanthi Nilayam on 24 Feb 2012. They held a  procession last evening featuring folk dances, ritual rallies and  fireworks
bringing to the Ashram town of Puttaparthy much  gaiety and celebration. 

This evening they provided a  variety show in Sai Kulwant Hall comprising of  Dances, Burra Katha, Hari Katha, Poetry, Talks, Video Clippings and Songs.  A small girl anthropomorphising Adilabad started the programme with a talk of gratitude followed by a dance to the tunes of 'Sampoorna Avataram'.

The masters of ceremony then took over the stage . They described the gaiety of Namasankirtana, chanting of God's name,  which is taking Adilabad by storm. They described the various folk art forms like Burra Katha and Hari Katha , revived thanks to Baba that are flourishing in Adilabad . 

Devotees then lined up to tell their stories of love and transformation. The Hari Katha artiste mentioned how on a trip of service, Baba ensured that food never ran out at his home, a
Sevadal described how Baba answered his 'test' by making him listen to his favourite song, 'Deivam Manava Roopamlo'. Another child rendered poetry while her father mentioned how Baba saved them from a hail storm . A volunteer mentioned how Baba's Vibuthi saved the family cow.

This was followed by a folk dance presentation, where children invited the villagers to Puttaparthi through the song, 'Puttaparthi ki pothamu, ra ra Raamaiya'. Three senior scholars then rendered  poetry with a background  of  video clippings of Baba's Discourse to Adilabad devotees.  A couple of group songs followed where all the devotees waved placards which read, "We Love You Swami". This was followed by a Mangalam song during which time 108 devotees presented Arati to Bhagawan.
It was an evening of Love,Devotion and plenty of Nostalgia.
