Monday, November 5, 2007 - Devotees and youth from Orissa are here in thousands, and this evening they presented a cultural programme. Some legislators and State Ministers from Orissa are also here. Bhagawan came to the stage area at 5.10 pm and the devotees brought up some items for Blessings, following which the programme began with a theme song on Bharat. A half-hour drama entitled "Secret of Happiness" followed, portraying the dictum that one gets joy by giving joy to others. Bhagawan came down from the stage to stand among the participants and grant them group photographs. Gotipua dance followed. This is traditionally performed by young boys dressed as Odissi dancers, performing many breath-taking acrobatic feats in their portrayal of the eternal Love of Radha and Krishna. Bhagawan Blessed the performers with group photographs and clothes. Ten minutes of Bhajans by the Orissa devotees followed as prasadam was distributed, and Swami accepted Arati at 6.30 pm.
