Engineer Baba

Maharaj Raman GiriHe lives alone in a small hut beyond the small temple at Kolpeshwar, which in turn lies beyond the small village of Urgam in the Indian Himalaya. He has a Masters degree in engineering and speaks impeccable English, but these simple facts are not the remarkable things about him.

As we left on the long walk back to the road, his last words to me were, "You’re always welcome here. Come whenever you like. Stay a few days."

Beautiful. I especially like the grey hair against the grey background. It emphasises the wonderful skin.
I'd go and stay with him any time!

I have no doubt you'd both greatly enjoy it, RR. The conversations would be wonderful.
