Ageh Bharti writes about the Osho event on July 24, 2016 in Jabalpur.
The evening was organized by Ageh Bharti, at the Rani Durgavati Sangrahalaya Art Gallery, in the centre of Jabalpur City, near the Maulshree Bodhi Tree in Bhavar Tal Park.
Firstly, Osho’s sister Nisha Bharti, together with retired Vice Chancellor of Indira Kala Sangeet University, Khairagarh, Roop Kumar Soni, and chief guest, senior author, artist and president Kamta Sagar *), as well as Ageh Bharti lit the oil lamps next to Osho’s photo to start the program that began at 6.30pm and ended at 10pm.
As part of the program, beautiful devotional songs were sung by Prem Paras, originally from Jabalpur but now living in Switzerland, accompanied by the Jogees Band, Mumbai.
Shri Rajesh Pathak ‘Pravin’ anchored the event excellently. With their music, Prem Paras and the accompanying artists encouraged the audience to fall into meditation. People were blissfully swaying and many were seen with tears in their eyes in memory of their beloved master. The Art Gallery was so packed that many had to stand outside to enjoy the music from there. People admired the event and wished such evenings to be organized in Osho’s city more often.
That the event took off so beautifully in all respects was due to the help of Anand Vibhor, Kiran Bharti and Raghavendra Bharti ‘Raghu’ (Ageh’s children), Shri Navin Pande, Krishna Vedant, and Anushri Bharti and Prem Sandesh. The event received good coverage in all regional newspapers and local TV channels.
*) Kamta Sagar designed cover pages of two of Osho’s books and some of the Yukrand magazines in the early days.
