When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
The first time ever that I came in touch was when I visited ISKCON Juhu temple in Mumbai, in the summer of 2008, when I was 11 years old as part of Mumbai Darshan. I was too young and ignorant to gauge the gravitas of the temple but I do have fleeting memories. I did buy a book called 'Life comes from Life' by Srila Prabhupad, obviously not knowing the nature of the content, but because I loved reading Puranas and had a taste for similar matter, I went ahead.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
Nearest one technically is ISKCON Thycaud, Trivandrum, which is actually under construction. Then there is ISKCON Pallichal, Trivandrum, which is very far away from the city in the outskirts.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
What are your expectations from this community?
Service to Lord Vàsudev.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I'm not sure of anything specific, but I would love to make a humble effort by any means possible.
