The programme started at 9.30 with the chanting of the Bhagavad Geeta by the inmates of Anandadham, children and mothers who had come for Mathru puja. Mananeeya Lakshmi Didi explained to them that the urgent need of the hour today was to understand the importance of the Bhagavad Geeta in daily life.
