The airport, spread over 4000 acres, can handle 11 million people per annum with 27 aircraft movements per hour and an estimated 550 movements in May 2008. At its peak, it can handle 720 aircraft movements in a day.
You are right, its the new Bengaluru Airport.
Well, after a rejuvenating TRM with 1000 teachers from all over the country and of course Guruji, I checked in at 12 noon at counter 2 (you can see in the pic above) for my 1.00 pm Mumbai Indigo flight and sat on the bench exactly opposite (you obviously cant see in the pic) and after some amount of calculation, speculation and haa-naa haa-naa, finally did my Short Sudarshan Kriya.
I must admit, I was very concious, especially while doing the Bhastrika. Thoughts like 'what if someone objects?', 'if some passenger waiting besides me complaints then what?', 'what if some security guy actually comes up to me and stops me?'; and to counter these thoughts, phrases like 'Dont be a football...', 'who cares', 'SoHam SoWhat', 'I am not harming anybody', 'let me do what I feel is right' etc were going like a merry-go-round in my mind. Till when I chanted Om and the chattering stopped as I went into kriya.
A thought that really helped was, "if young couples hugging and cuddling is not objectionable then why cant I do pranayam and kriya?"
And what hit the final nail in the coffin was, "on the other hand I am only blessing the airport with more satva" and that triggered in me, not only total acceptance, but also a sense of righteousness and pride.
Within moments, peace dawned and the smile that took off from the lips, spearheaded through the cheeks, transcended the ears and soared into higher levels of my (inner) atmosphere.
