GROUP FROM BASTAR: Guruji, we are 25-30 volunteers and teachers from Bastar, we want to ask you one question Guruji. Bastar, which was once famous for environmental beauty, peace and simplicity, is today being surrounded by violence, drugs and alcohol addictions. Guruji, how and when can we get freedom from this?

GURUDEV SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR: The first thing is that we want freedom from such happenings, and people like you and many youth, who want freedom, can work towards this. Once we start taking the right step in the right direction, and work with this intention that is in the mind of many youth - that we need peace, we need to get out of this menace of drugs and alcohol - we will be able to do so, then we are in the right direction.
