    Barack Obama's letter of Appreciation
    While Obama was on his campaign trail, he heard about Akshaya Patra mid-day meal programme of India and took time off to send a congratulatory note. In the note sent to the head of Akshaya Patra office in Boston, he writes, “Your use of efficient and innovative business practices to scale up in just a few years from feeding 1,500 school children daily to almost a million is a powerful demonstration of what’s possible when people work together.

    Could you please elobrate which part you found the so called "Evangelist chanting" in the above video or in the Akshaya Patra Program...so far I have not seen any Hare Rama Hare Krishna devotes going and converting other religious members to Hindu faith in the name of charity work in my 27 years life period...

    I used to dismiss ISKCON as Abrahamic version of Hinduism. However, I now realize that this is the correct method to counter Christian evangelism.
