Former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam visited Swaminarayan Akshardham in Gandhinagar to see the spectacular Sat-Chit-Anand Watershow.
He was greeted by the sadhus in traditional manner with a garland and recitation of Vedic mantras.
When the show began, Dr. Kalam was intrigued by the character Nachiketa and by the message of atma and Paramatma conveyed by the Watershow.
Afterwards he met all the young children who play the character of Nachiketa and appreciated their efforts, “You are doing a great service to the world.”
He also added, “Students from one thousand schools from every district of India should see this show.”
Dr Kalam was also introduced to the sadhus and volunteers involved with setting up and running the Watershow.
He then spoke with Pramukh Swami Maharaj on telephone and appreciated the show's message.
Finally, before departing, Dr Kalam signed the visitor book, “Swaminarayan Akshardham at Gandhinagar has given great divine message to the nation, ‘Create young Nachiketa’ India needs. I am sure thousands of young students in India, must see this, the best spiritual show ever. India definitely will get hundreds Nachiketa. My regards to Maha Pramukh Swamiji for this great spiritual contribution.”
