May 2, 2011 has become a golden milestone in Indian History. It was the day when a new chapter was added to the History in the land of United States of America. For the first time in the whole history of India, an Indian Saint was invited to be honored in the New York State Senate. This Saint is Pram Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swamiji.
