2 December 1960
On the morning of Saturday, 2 December 1960, 100 poor persons from Pimpalgaon Village were brought to Meherazad. Baba washed their feet, bowed to them and handed each ten rupees as prasad. He allowed Ben Hayman and Joseph Harb to help in the work. He positioned Ben on his right and Joseph on his left, during the first half of the program. Ben passed a ten-rupee note to Baba for each poor person, which Baba handed to them.
Joseph was busy giving Baba water and handing him the towels. He was keeping careful track of the number who had been washed and was amazed when, at exactly 50 (half), Baba reversed his and Ben’s positions. At the end of the program, Baba went to his room to rest, as his head ached from all the bending down.
