Between You and Us

Dear Reader,

Sai Ram and warm greetings from Prashanti Nilayam. As is only to be expected, this issue has a strong Sivarathri flavour. We hope you like the items we are featuring for you, especially the walk down memory lane.

We have now published over 10 issues of H2H in a row, and the wonderful, indeed the unbelievable thing about it is that every issue has appeared exactly on the dot that is, on the morning [Indian time of course] of the due date. This has happened every single time, and we owe this commendable punctuality entirely to our colleagues in S.N.Informatics who are most active in making this electronic magazine a reality, besides adding their own special touch of elegance. We in SGH salute our colleagues in SNI and publicly express our deepest gratitude for their sustained assistance in this and so many of our other joint ventures.

As soon as this issue appears, our friends in SNI will take a break [well deserved of course], but we of the SGH Team and Prashanti Digital Studio cannot afford to so relax. In fact, right then we would be running around trying to get everything in position for the first-ever live telecast of Sivarathri proceedings. Imagine that! Even as we here in Prashanti Nilayam have Swami’s Darshan, hear Him and sing Bhajans on that holy day, so would millions all over India, thanks to the live telecast. In fact, there is a move for devotees to assemble in the various Sai centres and sing the same Bhajans that we shall be singing here! Fantastic, is it not? A whole country resounding with the Name of the Lord, all sung at the same time! If that is not a miracle, what else would you call it?

For the record we must state that once before, on the occasion of the Unity Cup Cricket Match [in December 1996], there was in fact a live telecast from Puttaparthi, but that telecast was arranged by the National TV namely Doordarshan. This time, it is our crew that will do all the camera and audio work.

Wonders will never cease and the way things are going, it may well come to pass that on 23rd November, 2005, that is on the occasion of the Eightieth Birthday of our Beloved Swami, we may have an Outdoor Broadcasting van in the Hillview stadium to bring the proceedings live, not merely all over India but over the whole world!

By way of wrapping this up, we urge you to look up what Swami told Hislop about the Glory of this Avatar!

Wishing all of you, wherever you are, a Blissful experience on the Holy occasion of Sivarathri.

Jai Sai Ram.
