His eyes beamed bright, bright enough to light up the dark summer evening that had engulfed the familiar sight around us. His bright eyes focused on me as if recognizing me from long past as he pointed with his right hand towards a large Pipal tree by the temple in the ashram yard. He gestured me to sit with him...
