27 – 28 February 2011, Hyderabad
Amma took the occasion to launch the Amala Bharatam Campaign in Hyderabad, and each of the students of Amrita Vidyalayam school here received handkerchiefs which they were encouraged to use instead of spitting on the ground. The students, and the entire assembled crowd, received a personal demonstration from Amma on how she envisions using the handkerchief in a hygienic and sustained fashion, carefully folding it over after use.
On the other hand, the dedicated Western children were doing a commendable job off stage, preaching and practising Amma’s ABC message. For people in thousands, it was a unique sight – foreigners working for Indians.
