This morning, Bhagawan sat onstage after His darshan round from 7.40 to 8.15 am. Later, in the Bhajan Hall He again interacted with some of the MBA alumni who were still here, and created a ring for one of them. After He retired to His abode, there was some unusual activity going on there - and at 11.30 am, Swami left in the Mercedes accompanied by Mr. Chakravarthy, Secretary of the Central Trust. The Porte car followed the Mercedes, driven by Bro. Satyajith. Bhagawan took the road to Bangalore, but returned to Prasanthi Nilayam around 12.45. In the afternoon also, Bhagawan sat onstage after darshan for around half an hour from 4 pm.

This morning, Swami came for darshan around 7.20 am, and called some of the MBA alumni for an interview. These were the participants of the panel discussion yesterday. Around 8 o'clock, the interview was over, and the alumni had hopes that Swami would speak to all of them. But Bhagawan chose to go for a drive in His car. The car drove out of the Gopuram gate, and immediately returned! Then the alumni were asked to go inside the Bhajan Hall and they rushed in - filling up the Bhajan Hall in seconds! Instead of speaking to them from a distance, Bhagawan very lovingly went around in His chair up to the very end of the Hall, speaking to most of the alumni individually, calling by name students who had passed out years and years ago! Many an eye was filled with tears at the Lord's bountiful grace. Most of the morning Bhajans were also sung by the alumni, till Bhagawan returned to His abode after Arati at 9.20 am.
In the evening, Bhagawan gave an interview to some devotees from Thailand. Evening Bhajans began at 4.50 pm, and once again, some of the alumni got a chance to lead the Bhajans.
August 20th and 21st, 2005
The alumni of the School of Business Management of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning have gathered for a meet, titled 'Reconnect', for the 20th anniversary celebrations of the founding of the School. On 20th morning, nearly 500 of the alumni were present, and were sitting in the front part of Sai Kulwant Hall where the students usually sit. After darshan, the alumni were asked to go into the Bhajan Hall, and Bhagawan entered from the interview room. From 8.30 to 9 o'clock, Bhagawan spent time with them, going along the Bhajan Hall centre aisle like yesterday, making two rounds this time.
In the afternoon, the official programme of the 'Reconnect' meet began. A
detailed report of the meet is given at the
official website of Prasanthi Nilayam.

This evening, Swami went into the Bhajan Hall at around 4.10 pm. Around 4.30, He went in His chair down the aisle in the Bhajan Hall, right up to the very end. Then He went back to the front of the Bhajan Hall via the upper portico, thus granting close darshan to a large number of people.
