The Gayitri Photo was taken when we visited Dwaraka to see my friend Suresh my best friend who stays at Dwaraka,we visited all the holy places the most important being the temple of "Lord Krishna" to whom we prayed to give our son a boy.
When we told the temple priest our request he told us " If you want some favor from God you have to give him something and he will give it on a condition that you will visit him if your prayer is granted,we just gave a coconut and requested our favor for a son to our son.
By the divine grace of "Lord Krishna" my son's wife is now pregnant and we are very anxiously waiting for the baby's birth.My son was very fond of Krishna and it was his wish that we do Arati to Krishna whose photo was adorning our prayer room but we were not doing Arati to him.We started doing Arati more than 34 years ago and doing till today daily.
