Priya’s first encounter with Osho was when still in the womb. When Priya was 4 months old, Osho told her mum: “Priya is my child, I will take care of her”. In this episode, Priya talks about her love affair and special relationship with Osho and how Osho guided her in her life through hard decisions and tough times. Priya has evolved in a wonderful, mature, and educated lady who is equally comfortable in the inner as well as the outer world.
