Is Arvind Kejriwal good news? Or just paid news?!

I can say Arvind Kejriwal has been a friend of ours since quite some time.

Europe 2011 – B

We will be spending a week in Berlin attending the World Culture Festival at the Olympic Stadium which celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Art of Living, doing a YES!+ Advance Course and soaking up the physical presence of Guruji.

A Navjot, an Anniversary and 2 Birthdays
