Meher Today – 14th August
14 August 1949
At the beginning of August 1949, Baba informed the mandali that he would be coming to Meherabad from Meherazad to “discuss and decide about the mandali’s future.” Five days of meetings were scheduled from 15 to 20 August. Arrangements were made in advance for the out-of-town lovers invited to the meetings to stay at Meherabad. They arrived on Sunday, 14 August 1949 and included Minoo Kharas (from Karachi), Pappa Jessawala, Gadekar, Ghani, Was Deo Kain, Harjiwan Lal, Daulat Singh and a few other men. All were advised that during the days of the meetings no one should be absent.
