Abdicated my Throne

Its official, I have abdicated my throne!

Last week, the Honorable Justice of the Bombay City Civil Court ruled in favor of our petition. I no longer command my domain. Let me introduce you to the new Supreme Commander of Arun’s World to the East and in the West. My daughter, Meera Arun Shanbhag

The above picture was taken at the ashram on the first day we saw her. The light on the porch was ethereal and gave her an angelic look. I fell in love, instantly!

That was the time of the Mumbai terror attacks; you may now understand why I was so emotional during that period. The curfew then had prevented us from our daily visits to the ashram. And I was MAD at the terrorists for THAT too!

But we persevered and here is Meera on the first day we brought her home in Mumbai. Mother M is on cloud 9!

We have been blessed, what more could we have asked for?

Here are a string of Meera Updates:
