Mandapa das Remembers Srila Prabhupada

Following Srila Prabhupada

Interview DVD 08

Mandapa: I was working for the national airline Qantas in Sydney, and Prabhupada came through actually on his way back from Melbourne. I had access to the reservation system, so I put the VIP comments in the computer program; and when Prabhupada came through, they looked after him very nicely. I went over there and offered him some Seven Up or some drink like that, and Prabhupada looked at me because I was in my uniform, of course, being a traffic officer there at the airport. So I offered my obeisances in my uniform, and I think Prabhupada was a little bit surprised. He said, “Who is this boy?” So Srutakirti prabhu said that I was in Melbourne at the events in the last few days. But it was nice, I felt very happy to do that.
