Meher Today – 5th February
5 February 1941
On Sunday, 5 February, Baba again departed from Jaipur for Delhi to contact masts with Chanji and Gustadji. At the Delhi station, Baba and Gustadji sat near the telegraph office, while Chanji went to look for Kaka, who was arriving by a different train. Minoo Kharas of Karachi had suddenly been ordered to go to Delhi on official police work, and Chanji was shocked to see him standing on the platform. Since Baba was traveling incognito, as per his standing order, Minoo covered his eyes when he saw Baba and turned away. Chanji asked him to help find Kaka and then leave, without meeting Baba. “It’s a torture!” Minoo pleaded to Chanji — but he obeyed.
