Welcome legendary Meera to your home

On the occasion of Diwali, I am fortunate to offer you a bumper gift of purity, spirituality and love.

Make a date with ‘Roopa Aur Aap,’ on Saturdays at 7 pm on Face TV (formerly Triangle TV) on Sky TV to watch a serial on Meera, one of the most ardent devotees of Lord Krishna. The first episode will be telecast on October 26, 2013.

This is the first time in the history of the international television industry that a serial on the legendary Meera is being telecast.

This is a golden opportunity to cherish the spiritual love that Meera had for Lord Krishna. The serial will educate, entertain and excite people of all ages.

The serial will be of special interest to the younger members of our communities, who have been evincing increasing interest in Indian epics and the life of pious persons.

Royal renunciation

Meera is a story of a girl who fought for her true love – the Lord himself, with spiritual magnetism that had no parallel.

A born princess, she sacrificed the pleasures of her palace and became an ascetic, begging on the streets of ‘Brindavan. Many were inspired by her infectious devotion and spontaneous love for Lord Krishna.

She demonstrated how a seeker could attain union with God only through love. Her story and struggle for her rights to worship Krishna won the hearts of people.

I am honoured that ‘Roopa Aur Aap,’ which is completing ten years of telecasting has been entertaining not only people from the Indian Sub-Continent but also our brothers and sisters from other countries of the world, including Fiji, Africa and Asia.

I have also been overwhelmed by the support and guidance extended by our communities in the successful functioning of ‘Roopa Aur Aap Charitable Trust’ and ‘Jaagriti Women’s Support Group.’

The Trust helps women in distress, especially victims of family violence and others to rejuvenate their lost charm and identity in the society.

It is unfortunate that People of all races, ages and incomes experience abuse at home in one form or the other. It is our mission to assist them to the extent possible and enable them to progress in life.

I hope that serials like Meera will inspire all of us to work towards the welfare of all peoples of all ethnic groups, thereby adding new meaning to our existence.

Editor’s Note: According to Wikipedia, Meera (affectionately called ‘Meerabai’) was a princess from Rajasthan. She was one of the most significant figures of ‘Sant’ of the ‘Vaishnava Bhakti Movement.’ More than 1300 poems, commonly known as Bhajans (sacred songs) are attributed to her. These are popular throughout India and have been published in several translations worldwide. In the Bhakti tradition, they are in passionate praise of Lord Krishna. In most of her poems, Meera has described her unconditional love for her Lord. She believed that Krishna Bhakti is the best way to live, since it liberates people from worldly desires.
