6 January 2001: (V.S. 2057, Posh Sud 11) Thursday, Rajkot, Kishore Day
Slated as Kishore Day, the evening assembly saw three dramas that showed death as being auspicious, steadfastness in one's vow and horizons of faith. The kishores held a 'niyam-tula' where they honored Lord Harikrishna Maharaj by weighing Him against their moral pledges. Finally Swamishri blessed the assembly.
