In today's Tryst with Divinity, we bring you the third part of a scintillating conversation with Mrs. Kamala Pandya and Mr. Nimish Pandya, a dedicated wife and husband duo who have together served Bhagawan's mission for decades.


Mrs. Kamala Pandya is a two-time gold medalist from the Bombay University, once for her Bachelors in Psycology and the second time for excelling in Legal Jurisprudence in Law. She was married in Puttaparthi by Bhagawan Himself and as per His command, she studied Law after marriage and changed her profession from teaching to pleading. She is presently a practicing Advocate in Mumbai. Mrs. Pandya is also the Deputy National Coordinator of the Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas Education Program.

Her husband Mr. Nimish Gulabrai Pandya hails from a family of attorneys and is presently practicing as an Advocate in the high Court of Mumbai and as a Notary Public. He heads the law firm, Pandya & Co., Mumbai and is on the Board of Directors of many leading corporations in India. Mr. Pandya is also the National Vice President of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva organization. He is in charge of the Sai education program in India, including Bal Vikas and the Sri Sathya Sai schools and is a trustee of the Sri Sathya Sai Trust, Maharashtra state. He has been associated with the EHV program since its inception. Mr. Pandya has directed several value-based ballets and dramas with children and youth in Bhagawan's presence.

The 30th edition of SAMARPAN was held today on 17th September 2017, Sunday at the holy precincts of Dharmakshetra, Mumbai.

The guest speaker for the day was Dr Deepak Anand who spoke for more than 105 minutes about his innumerable close experiences with His Divine Master. The video of today's talk will be released soon

Dr Deepak Anand is truly blessed to be in Swami’s close proximity for over two decades. Besides numerous interactions with Swami at Prashanthi Nilayam and Brindavan, he was blessed to be part of Swami’s entourage on His visits to Kodaikanal on four occassions.

Brother Deepak Anand hails from New Delhi. He and his family had first darshan of Swami in the year 1974. Since then the family has been an ardent devotee. He joined Swami’s Institute to puruse MBA in 1997. After completing his MBA course, he was blessed and guided by Swami to pursue Ph.D. in International Finance and received the Degree from the Divine Hands in 2004. Since then he has been an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Management at Swami’s University. His father has been blessed to be editor of ‘Sanathana Sarathi’, Swami’s monthly magazine, for the last 20 years.

Throughout his career as a student and later, a staff member, Brother Deepak Anand was immensely blessed to be in close proximity of Swami. He was blessed on several occassions to speak in the Divine Physical presence. He was selected by Swami to play lead roles in various convocation dramas, directed by Swami himself. On many occassions, he was personally chosen and instructed by Swami to serve various dignitaries, on their visit to Prashanthi Nilayam. He is a prolific speaker and has been invited to various countries to share his experiences. He has recently released his book entitled, "Love Smile Now" which is an autobiographical account of his life with Swami and offers an insider’s narrative on Swami’s life, His relationship with His students and the way He moulds them by His loving touch of transformation.
