In a convocation, held at Rajbhavan Hyderabad, the assembled media and academic community watched a saffron robed hare krishna walk in with gown and hood to receive his doctorate. The Governor greeted with 'hare krishna' and a broad smile and spoke in praise of Hare Krishna movement for few minutes.
