Where culture meets the stands of technological modernization

The morning alarm went off and it took my sleep away. With half sleepy eyes, my hands quickly scrolled down on my phone but suddenly it stopped. It was the date which put me into a realization that I have survived a fortnight in this theoretically unfamiliar place. Well, the clouds of my past few days seem to play distinctively alive as I lay back to relive the aroma of my recent experiences.

The thrill and curiosity doubled as I stepped in Ahmedabad. I was an anxious newcomer in the city who jittered about the language barriers. The conversation between myself and the cab driver would cover any term’s syllabus as it covered numerous topics. I quickly made this newly acquainted person my language teacher for a while and picked up certain Gujarati words such as ‘sue che’ meaning how are you, ‘majama’ meaning I all alright, ‘saru’ meaning all good and ‘barobar’ meaning perfectly alright.

It took me around forty minutes before I found myself within the premises of Trimandir in Gandhinagar, where one would find me for the next couple of months. There was this huge complex named as Business Park which stood right in front of me and which would be my workplace for a while. They had their office placed on the third floor of this building.

Back at the office, I somehow managed to occupy the best seat beside this huge glass window. My dreams and my thoughts start to get trapped with nature by the vision from this enormous glass window.

Before passing, he blessed Pujya Niruma and Pujya Deepakbhai with siddhis required to conduct Gnan Vidhi ceremonies.
