Sangli

I am just back from a whirlwind tour of centres in Sangli and the adjoining regions. The visit was essentially a precursor to Bapu’s visit to Sangli scheduled for April 2013, and intended of course to take stock of the level of preparedness of our various upasana centres which are coming together to organize yet another historic event but also along side to understand their problems and concerns, if any and to fine tune their focus on the preparations if required.

We were in the midst of planning Bapu’s visit to Jalgaon. It was the year 2011. Around the same time volunteers from Sangli had come to meet me at Happy Home with a request that Bapu visit Sangli. As I was talking to them, all of a sudden Bapu entered my office and joined us. The volunteers from Sangli were absolutely thrilled! They could now put their request directly to Bapu To their astonishment and joy Bapu readily agreed to visit Sangli and also a few other adjoining places.

Enthused and delighted with this, the volunteers of Sangli set about their preparations for Bapu’s tour. They conducted more than 1600 Gunasankirtans across Sangli and its adjoining areas. Finally Bapu’s tour was planned for April 2013. My visit to the Sangli region last week was mainly to oversee the preparations of the visit.
