Sadhu Prof. V.Rangarajan in his speech briefly elaborated his life time dream of consecrating a Bharatamata temple and the uniqueness of this temple. He briefed the audience on the unsuccessful attempt of a renowned freedom fighter and saint, Subramania Siva, to build a temple for Bharatmata, on the lines of worship of Bhavani Bharati conceived by Mahayogi Sri Aurobindo, and how this dream has been fulfilled now. He also mentioned out, how close this project was to the heart of his Deeksha Guru Yogi Ramsuratkumar of Thiruvannamalai. Many years before he had promised this Sadhu that this project will be successfully completed by the blessings of Father.
