Meher Today – 10th September
10 September 1922
On Sunday, 10 September 1922, a snow white pigeon flew into the Manzil. The bird looked ill and exhausted and, when an attempt was made to catch it, it was easily trapped. The bird was taken to Baba, who lovingly held and caressed it. But it was so sick it was unable to walk. It was an exceptionally beautiful bird, and Baba looked after it the whole night. The next day, he told the men that despite his care the pigeon had died. He had been up three times during the night to nurse it. He told all the men to come and see the bird, for it had died in a peculiar position — on its legs with its head bent — as if offering namaskar (salutations) to Baba.

Baba bowed to 220 poor (167 men and 53 women) from eight surrounding villages and handed ten rupees to each as prasad. Noshir Irani and his brother Boman were permitted to witness the proceedings as they had donated the Rs.2,200 amount given as prasad, as per Baba’s request of them. (“Baba has no money to give to the poor,” Eruch had written them, “and give he must!”)
