I presented a paper in the conference "The Future of India - Through the Eyes of an NRI" - Photos of Swamy Ramdevji's visit to UK

I presented my ideas on subject "corruption free India" in the conference "The Future of India - Through the eyes of an NRI". This conference was held in London, UK on Sunday 22nd September 2013.  There were above 5000 applications to attend this conference, out of them, only 500 were invited to attend as guests.  All conference attendants are brilliant and bright individuals, successful in their own professions.  Twenty speakers from around UK, who are well known for their work in the country - are invited to speak on particular subjects.  There were total 5 conference subjects.   I was humbled to share the stage with them. This conference was live telecast around the world by Astha TV. It has reached a billion people around the world.

Dr. Jasdev Singh Rai giving his speech on subject "Corruption-free India". Dr. Jasdev has written and published academic papers on ethics, gender foeticide, anti-terrorism, freedom of conscience, conflict resolution and corruption in India. In addition he has developed and written a critique on Universalism for UNESCO in the ethics agenda for UNESCO.

Hindu Forum of Britain has officially got involved in the visa immigration issue related to Sri Baba Ramdevji. I am glad Keith Vaz has readily agreed to meet with me and Sasibhai at his residence. Hindu Forum representatives helped to resolve the issue.

At the airport before going in to speak to the Immigration Officials

Swamy Ramdevji's press conference at the Heathrow airport after he got back his passport. UK Immigration officials offered apologies for the inconvenience caused and they also gave TWO years multiple-entry visa to Baba Ramdevji. We are all glad that it was a happy ending.
