A Day in Vrinda Kunj

While walking by the banks of the almost empty Yamuna river,  dada said, “Why aren’t they making new libraries instead of new temples?”. As we cracked a few light hearted silly jokes our eyes laid upon a library.

Two or three steps inside Yamuna Kunja(the library) and I saw a Jagannath idol kept directly before the gate. Dada wondered why  Vaishnava’s of Uttar Pradesh would do that. The spot felt diverse. A couple of steps more and we saw sign boards, calendars, and publications written in Bengali. Delighted and intrigued in equivalent measures,  we found a monk there who told us about Vrinda Kunj.  Pleased by our curiosity he agreed to take us there.
