The Ahmednagar bhajan group sang as Baba sat on a dais under the shamiana and handed out prasad to the many people who had come from distant places such as Bombay, Poona, Hamirpur, Nasik, Surat, Pathardi and Calcutta.
Nari Contractor, the famous Indian cricket player, and the Maharani of Baroda were also present. Baba had also brought the women mandali from Meherazad, who watched the proceedings from behind a screened-off area. Lunch was prepared for them and Baba, but Baba had not time to eat and took the food with him to Meherazad.
