Nestled in the barren lands of Rayalaseema, on the foothills of Horsley Hillls is the small town of Madanapalli. My student and friend Dr. Priyam gave up a lucrative job and has committed herself to look after the Swasthya Kendra of the Satsang campus. Nestled in lively groves of exotic plants the Ashram provides free education and healthcare to people of the surrounding areas, and Priyam is the live-wire – all over the place. She lives in a small room in the health centre, and takes personal care of innumerable children. For city people like us, the Ashram is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Life slows down, needs are very few, serenity rules. I enjoyed spending a day there last week, and came back mesmerized – to the concrete jungle once more.
