MUSCAT Eoe1/4" The Embassy of India, Muscat, in association with Rajayoga Education & Research Foundation, organised a talk titled Eoe1/4EoLive More, Worry LessEoe1/4A[yen] by Dadi Janki, administrative head of Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) at the embassy auditorium.
Clad in a white sari, and with pure white hair, Dadi Janki is an embodiment of serenity and peace.
County had two good chances in the first half, with Dadi and Mike Edwards missing with headers.
Dadi said: "I will always be grateful to Ray for bringing me to Tranmere when he was manager.
Dadi, 31, is a busy man and the striker-cum-fashion designer is juggling Tranmere's play-off campaign with finishing off his latest collection and getting married.
Dadi went to South Korea for a training camp with Chinese side Shanghai Cosco but failed to win a deal.
Dadi - expected to join Livi's pre-season trip to Holland - flew home to Toulouse but will hold talks when chairman Dominic Keane returns from holiday.
The well-travelled Dadi is the latest latest signing by Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert.
The departure of Dadi, who did not figure in the Tranmere first-team frame this season, leaves room in Little's budget to strengthen the squad and the manager confirmed: "We are looking to do something."
Dadi scored before being sent off and winger Paul Hall headed an equaliser.
With Gareth Roberts on Wales duty, Little had no real balance on the left and threw on Dadi and Paul Brown at the break to spark a second half of dominance for Tranmere - which could not have been in starker contrast to what had gone before.
