A crowd of people were waiting for someone to come out of the car in the motorway service area. When he came out, he came towards me. He had bodyguards keeping the crowd distant. Because he was wearing a mask, I couldn’t recognize him, but l placed the Bhagavad Gita in his hand. He said to me, “l recognize you. You are someone famous.” l replied, ” l am not famous. l am a man of God.” He said, “If you’re a man of God, pray for me.” I replied, “If you read this book, l’ll pray for you.” He assured me that he would read the book and asked me, “What’s your name?” I replied, “Raffaele. What’s your name?” He said, “Simon.” I asked him if I could take his photo, and when he took off his mask for the photo, I recognized Simon Cowell 😁
Many people have the impression of him being very harsh, and sarcastic, l felt he’s a sincere good-hearted man.
