|'Ravi Bhaiya' or 'Ravi sir' has been an inspiration and role model for many generation of singers that included Ashwath also.|
Several days later, when Ashwath offered a rose to Swami before the Arati, Swami asked,
|Bhagawan Baba playing the cymbals as a student sings during a Trayee session.|
|... for God knows far more than Google can ever know! :)|
“Where place are you from?”
“Swami, from Coimbatore...”
“Which place in Coimbatore?”
“Swami, Sai Baba Colony.”
“Ah! Your house is near my house only!” said a smiling Swami.
Ashwath also smiled for he stayed very close to a temple of Shirdi Sai Baba after which the area had got its name!
“You shifted to this house on June 13th.”
This was something about which Ashwath had no idea. So he simply nodded. That night, when he called up his parents, he asked whether they remembered when they had shifted to the house. After some discussion, his mother said,
|Ashwath first sought Swami to offer his music; he then offered his music seeking Swami. It was a small but|
very important transition... (Ashwath with Swami in Kodaikanal)
