The evening programme commenced at 1700 hrs. with two of the speakers, one apiece representing both boys and girls who had once been students of our Primary Schhol recounting the 'wonder-touch' of Baba,whom they called "The Mother With The Love Of Thousand Mother".
Speaking first, Ms Sonia Thakar, of batch of 1996-2003, who had her stint in professional journalism with famed TV channels, took the audience down the memory lane touching upon 'LOVE', the golden thread that links Him with His properties. Studying under Swami's umbrella has been a wonderful experience with values coming to the fore at every step, every day throughout...as a continuous learning experience, said a grateful Sonia narrating beautiful tales of His Touch Of Love. At a time when she entertained serious apprehensions about joining a TV channel, that was in the news for wrong reasons indulging in spreading negative propaganda about Bhagawan, the speaker narrated how subtly Bhagawan guided her to clarity through a Divine discourse.
Talking about Miracle Of His Divine Love, the speaker also narrated a couple of incidents wherein two families were saved from gruesome road accidents, unhurt. Lavishing special praise for the wonderfully dedicated teachers at the Primary School, the speaker paused a question, ...In gratitude, what should we do? ...we should be able to follow at least one of His teachings, said Sonia ending her exhilarating speech at a positive note, ...let's step into 2013 as Sai is foremost in our thoughts, words and deeds, practising Love All Serve All.
Sri Sai Gunaranjan, of batch 1987-2002, who is the founder of United Care Development Services, a philanthropic forum taking active role in social service, spoke next calling it a Home Coming... Speaking about the dedicated devoted teachers at the School, Gunaranjan said, actual learning happens outside the classroom with Bhagawan at the centre. The great Mother that He is, Bhagawan balances it so skilfully as a Mother and extreme task master, Who pushes His students to the extreme to bring the best out of His students. His subtle influence helps His students to stretch beyond the boundaries.
Touching upon his area of social activities, Gunarajan opined that evil is rampant in today's world not because it is stronger but because good ones are silent. 'Giving' is inevitable in man's life, by default, as he has to leave everything when the final call comes; so, it is a matter of choice for man to decide when and where he practise the act of giving and sharing.
A bouquet of songs by the alumnni followed, interspersed with beautiful narrations of wonderful tales with Bhagawan. Songs for the evening were: Pyare Sai Hamare..., Tu Pyar Ka Sagar Hai..., Someone Above To Guide Me..., Maula Maula Mere... and Mother Of Mine....
A short video on the Primary School followed, wherein Bhagawan spoke of very high of the wonderment called Sri Sathya Sai Primary School.
