Meher Today – 6th September
6 September 1933
On 6 September, Baba went to Alamai Katrak’s home where he played carrom for a while before leaving for Nasik at 3:15 that afternoon.
6 September 1957
On Friday, 6 September 1957, Baba visited the home of K. K. Ramakrishnan in Kirkee (107/5 Range Hills), where many of the Poona Center workers had gathered. Baba met with them for a while before visiting Gadekar’s and then departing for Meherazad in Meherjee and Adi’s cars, as before.
Baba had contacted a few masts in Poona. One day Jalbhai brought a Christian named John, whom he had spotted wandering in the bazaar. Baba had not worked with this man before. He said, “He is not on the Path [planes], but he has some hawa [breeze] of it.” The man appeared mast-like, speaking fluent English, but his sentences were without rhyme or reason. He was rather distinguished looking, had a beard, old clothes and a somewhat courtly manner. Baba was very happy to contact him and enjoyed his nonsensical talk.
6 September 1964
On Sunday, 6 September 1964, Baba too was taken to Ranade’s Clinic for an X-ray of his kidneys. He went at 9:30 A.M. with Eruch and Goher. Adi had gone in advance to make sure everything was ready.
There had been insufficient rain that year, and the farmers’ crops in Ahmednagar District were failing. Drinking water was likewise becoming a problem, as the wells were drying up. Around noon on the 6th, after Baba had returned from Ahmednagar, 30 Arangaon villagers came to Meherazad in bullock carts, singing the whole distance of about fifteen miles. They hesitated to enter the compound because of Baba’s seclusion, but hearing their ringing acclamations, Pendu went to speak with them. Coming back, he informed Baba, who called them into the hall at 3:00 P.M. “Tell me truthfully, why have you come here?” Baba asked.
They told him of the critical water situation and impending famine and asked for his blessing of rain. Baba replied, “Don’t worry; I will see to it.” He distributed prasad, and after ten minutes the villagers left. On their way back, rain began falling. Hailing Baba, they reached Arangaon.
