School for the blind girls gave us a very warm reception. We were given a conducted tour of the school by the head teacher. Each class we visited stood up to give us respect and many recited Hindu prayers by reading braille. It was a very emotional visit especially for the editor Shree Sunilbhai Dhanak who had a daughter who was blind and very sadly lost her few years ago. These girls at the school never forget us after we left. They sent me a Rakhi that arrived by post in London on the Rakshabandhan Day with a beautiful poem. This lovely poem that will make your heart melt is posted on the website.

Prayers by your sisters to my brother

 

Naina varshe nehna  vari  haiye  khili  phoolvel

Veera tari  beni  aaje rakhdi bandhva  aavi

Ujjaval bhale  tilak  lagavi  aarti utari

Veera na mo ma mithai muki  rakhdi bene bandhi

Resham na tana vanama  gunthaya het na preet

Bhai bahen na  veesuddh  premnu rakhdi  che pratik

Such  sampati  aavi  malo  vaso  siddhina  ooche shrung

Jagat  neeyntane  prarthana kre  veera  tari  bahen

Na  mangu  hu  heera moti na sonu chandi  mongha cheer

Pragna chakshu  prarthana kare  aam sang  rahejo  veer

Your  pragnachakshu  baheno
