I am still brave

Gargamuni: In the photo, myself right to Srila Prabhupada, behind is Srutakirti his servant and left to Srila Prabhupada is Rupanuga Swami. While in Calcutta Srila Prabhupada liked his morning walk at Victoria Memorial. Once Srila Prabhupada recollects that, "That was built in memory of Victoria. It was done imitating the Taj Mahal. It took twenty years. Sir Rajendra Nath Mukherjee of Martin Company, he took the contract. And after finishing, he got this title 'Sir.' And when it was being constructed, I went to the top by crossing the scaffolding."

When Brahmananda told Prabhupada that, "So you must have been very brave." Srila Prabhupada said, "Yes, I am still brave. [laughter] Otherwise how could I come alone to preach Krishna consciousness? I am still brave."
