Meher Today – 27th August

27 August 1929

Baba left Nasik for Meherabad with the men mandali on 27 August. After driving about 77 miles, Baba asked the bus to be stopped a few miles from Rahuri. The group got out and Baba sat down under a tree to discuss their future plans. As the sun was setting, Baba suddenly requested that his arti be sung. This was done and the mandali bowed to him and took his darshan. The discussion continued for another five minutes, and Baba surprisingly wanted the arti performed again. Thus, after a lapse of several months, Baba had the whim for arti, which was sung to him twice.

Seeing Baba, Jimmy became completely his. Nariman and Arnavaz were to have a close connection with the Pimpalgaon estate in years to come. They too had been invited and had come a few days beforehand. Dr. Deshmukh would never miss such a chance to be with Baba, and he was present with his wife Indumati.
