(To read that again, go here). Now a second US city has joined this trend! This is the city of Little Rock , in the central state of Arkansas , where the mayor Mr. Jim Dailey, has proclaimed November 23 rd, Swami's Birthday, as Sri Sathya Sai Baba Day.

Little Rock is the capital and largest city in the U.S. state of Arkansas with a population of more than 183,000.

The city derives its name from a small rock formation on the south bank of the Arkansas River La Pétite Roche (the "little rock") and is famous for being former US president Bill Clinton's seat of governorship.

In his Proclamation Mr. Jim Dailey, the Mayor, has given some august comments on Swami, His life and mission. As an official declaration it is a joy to read and we are sure that you will agree with the mayor’s opinion
