This morning also Swami went on a round in His chair a few
minutes past 8 o'clock, and stopped for a few minutes outside
the interview room talking to someone there. After this,
Bhagawan came into the Bhajan Hall and asked those students who
were going home to come forward - as they came up in a line, He
gave each one vibhuti prasadam, spoke a few words with some, and
gave padanamaskar to most. This went on till 8.50 am when Swami
went into the interview room. Later He returned for the Bhajans.

In the morning, Swami came just before 8 o'clock and sat onstage
for some time. Then He asked to be wheeled in His chair along
the ladies' side, and completed a full darshan round again in
His chair. After that, He went inside the interview room and
came later to the Bhajan Hall for bhajans. In the evening, after
a full darshan round, Swami went inside. Just past 3.30 pm, He
went on a round of the upper portico, interacting with those
seated there, and slowly came into the Bhajan Hall from the rear
door. Inside, He spent nearly an hour, interacting with some
students and teachers there. Later, He went inside the interview
room and came out during bhajans.

This morning, the Vizag group once again got a chance to sing
for Bhagawan, this time in the Bhajan Hall. Swami came for
darshan at around 8.45 am, and soon came into the Bhajan Hall.
After a bhajan or two, Bhagawan got up and moved among the Vizag
youth, talking to some and taking letters from a few. This was
their cue to start singing group songs, including the Pallaki
song which they sing when they go for village sevice activities.
At the end of their nearly hour long song/bhajan session, Swami
Blessed roses held by many of them and retired after Arati.
In the evening, again Swami wanted songs to be sung during the
Bhajan session, and this time it was the Hindustani vocal
singers of the Music College who got the chance to sing. After
the first Ganesha bhajan, they began with Meera songs and also
sang popular songs by Hari Om Sharan and others. This session
also lasted for nearly an hour.

Youth groups from Hyderabad and Vishakhapatnam (Vizag) had also
come prepared with musical programs for Yugadi. This evening,
Swami gave the Vizag youth the chance to present their hour long
song programme, starting just after five o'clock.
