They started for Hyderabad on 9 December. On the way, Baba said he was hungry. What did he ask for? Some very peculiar dishes: “Norina’s nose, Jafrabadi buffalo, salad of a lock of Mansari’s hair, curry of the tail of a frog, and soup of Gaimai’s hand!” Such humorous, delightful interludes were welcome and the time passed happily as Baba distributed puffed rice, peanuts or sweets among the group.

On Saturday, 9 December, while discussing the opposition, Jal Kerawalla asked Baba why he did not come out and crush this slanderous antagonism. Baba gave this reply:
But they have not yet reached the point of crucifying me! This is nothing compared to what I want. Be prepared for that. This is only the beginning — mere child’s play! I warned you some time ago to be prepared for opposition on a much more serious and larger scale than this.
