Region 4- Sathya Sai Baba Centre of Narborough Road, Leicester Global Service Day

The Sathya Sai Baba Centre of Narborough Road, Leicester celebrated Global Service Day on Sunday 22nd July, 2012, at Birstall Village Hall in Leicester.

On a surprisingly bright and shiny Sunday morning about 60 elderly guests were picked up from their homes by our volunteers. Upon arrival at the village hall, our guests were gleaming with joy. It was a day for our guests to entertain, to be entertained, to talk to someone, to be respected, to be appreciated, to be spoilt and to be LOVED.

After a humble welcome and refreshments the spiritual atmosphere was set with prayers and bhajans by the youth. This was followed by entertainment which included some interesting and funny Shayari (poetry) by Bhavanbhai, jokes by Chiragbhai and an interactive presentation by Dipakbhai. Some of the guests also had an opportunity to dance. Lunch time arrived fast; a scrumptious hot dinner and Gulab Jammu were served. Despite all the Gulab Jammu getting finished, there were enough for all to relish. During lunch there were live Bollywood songs being sung for entertainment. After a hearty meal, some of the guest played Bingo and others opted to go for a walk in the park to enjoy the weather. Again there were some more Bollywood songs, some of which were sung by the guests. This was followed by tea and biscuits whilst a general knowledge quiz was played. The day ended with some more devotional songs, the Shirdiwala Sai Baba Qawali and Aarti which was conducted by a few guests whose birthday fell around that day. The guests were then taken back to their respective homes.

All the guests had a lovely time and asked us when next programme would be. Oh and of course...the volunteers had a great time too. With a nice satsang, lovely food, a good catch up and plenty of smiles, it was day that was enjoyed by all.
When everyone is Happy, Swami is Happy!

Be Happy and smile!

Victory to Sai.
