--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where is this place located?  
Ans. the place is Singapore – Gardens by the Bay
What were you trying to achieve?  
Ans. I found this landscape extremely charming. The baby is sculpted and is as it were hanging or floating in the air. Only the right arm of the baby is touching the ground while the entire body appears to be above the earth! When I stood there with my camera the baby was at my eye level.
What challenges did you face
Ans. My challenge was I wanted to capture the three dimensional form of the baby. 
How did you overcome them?  
Ans. So I went to different angles but this was the best angle I felt as correct because of the darkish shadows on the right side of the baby's body gave that extra dimension.  The black clouds on the left upper corner of the photo enhances the white sculpture. This landscape is a masterpiece in art in the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.

Aum Happy Independence Day to everyone!
==================================
Swami Vivekananda's one quote on India – What she is :
-----
If there is any land on this earth that can lay claim to be the blessed Punya Bhumi, to be the land to which all souls on this earth must come to account for Karma, the land to which every soul that is wending its way Godward must come to attain its last home, the land where humanity has attained its highest towards gentleness, towards generosity, towards purity, towards calmness, above all, the land of introspection and of spirituality — it is India. Hence have started the founders of religions from the most ancient times, deluging the earth again and again with the pure and perennial waters of spiritual truth. Hence have proceeded the tidal waves of philosophy that have covered the earth, East or West, North or South, and hence again must start the wave which is going to spiritualise the material civilisation of the world. Here is the life-giving water with which must be quenched the burning fire of materialism which is burning the core of the hearts of millions in other lands. Believe me, my friends, this is going to be.

Vedanta in Santa Barbara
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pravrajika Krishnaprana mataji was on a two-day visit to Singapore on her way to Indonesia and Cambodia. She visited our ashram on the 2nd morning and had lunch prasad with us. In the evening I saw her at my Gita class and hence after completing my Gita class in 30 minutes I requested her to speak to our devotees about Santa Barbara. This is a sub-centre of our Hollywood Centre in USA. She was initiated by Swami Prabhavanandaji and had her monastic vows from Swami Aseshanandaji. For nearly 45 years she has been associated with Vedanta work. Devotees were pleased to listen to her when she traced the history of Vedanta Centres in USA and how the SB centre came up and became an established Convent for nuns. She was accompanied by Kalidasi, one senior devotee of the Convent.

AUM Happy sacred Sunday!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today is the English date of Master's mahasamadhi. This morning by His grace I inaugurated the Yoga Class by lighting the lamp kept before the Holy Trio at Sarada Hall within our Singapore Mission campus. The students coming from all walks of life belonged to the 54th batch. The Yoga classes are run by Nikam Guruji Yoga Institute which has trained instructors who all devote their life of teaching free of cost. No fees are charged for the Basic Course of 12 weeks span. In my speech I explained what concentration does mean. Mainly shuddhikaran (cleansing techniques) and a few relevant asanans are being taught in this course. Sri Atul Deshpande the Master of NGYoga Institute informed me that 148 candidates joined this course and about 50 had to be kept for the next term.
