The secret fans33

I was running by the construction on 150th Street, right in front of Ranjana’s house. Three or four Filipino children were hiding in one of the big holes, so I didn’t see them. I was running by at an eight-minute pace, and all of a sudden I saw three or four heads. The children had been hiding, waiting for me to go by. They were so delighted, so excited to see me.

In this area everybody knows me. Sometimes they call me ‘Sri Chinmoy’ or ‘Shry’; sometimes they call me ‘chief’ even. I hear that one of our disciples is teaching in the school right across from Lucy’s street, so many children learn about me from that person.
