In January 2001, while Sri Chinmoy was still on his annual Christmas trip (maybe to Myanmar or Indonesia) he composed a beautiful song, called "Shuno Shuno Bishwa Basi" the words to which you can find here:
It's a song that's full of energy and joy. I sing it often.
When the Master returned from his Christmas trip a few weeks later, two groups of disciples, one group of men and another group of women, arranged and performed the song.

After both performances were over, and we all took prasad, one of the women singers happened to walk past Guru, still wearing her blue face paint.
"Who are you," Guru asked her, "Kali?"
The woman nodded, and Guru said, "To me, she is not blue. When I see Mother Kali, she is always golden."
