Leicester will see the influx of devotees from around the world as the Saint will be spreading his message on love, peace and harmony along with serving mankind. His Holiness also known as Pujya Bhaishri will be reciting from the Shrimad Bhagvatam, a Holi Hindu Scripture.
The organisers of the event named ‘Krishna Speaks’ are making provisions for the elderly, disabled and the young alike, ensuring that we can all come together and enjoy a 8-day festival and be in close proximity of the saint.
Priti Raichura, spokesperson from the organising team ‘ Krishna Speaks’ explains "We are working with the multi-agency statutory teams to ensure we make this event accessible for everyone, there is nothing better than having the young and the elderly coming together on one platform to celebrate, love peace and spiritual harmony."
The organisers are encouraging young people to come forward in a run up to the event asking them to adopt a grandparent over the 8-days. The scheme will enable young people to help look after the needs of the elderly during the festival, and at the same time listen to the recital and enjoy the event too.
Dina Mistry, a young professional from Leicester is overwhelmed with the opportunity of adopting a grandparent. She enthuses "I think this is a great opportunity to enable us to serve our respected elders and welcome them to this once in a life time Katha. It is going to be an amazing event, I’ll definitely be adopting a grandparent over the 8 day Katha."
The idea of adopting a grandparent arose after the organisers visited a few care homes to invite them to attend the event. Dipak Lakhani: Managing Director of Pauls Fruit and Veg, and one of the sponsors of this recital describes "Hinduism promotes serving our respected elders, and we thought it would be nice for the younger generation to help serve the elderly during the 8-days to make their experience as enjoyable as possible. The youth will also benefit from potentially developing and establishing a long standing bond with them. We hope that the youth continue to meet these individuals in their care homes and spend time with as they would after the 8 day Katha.”
