THE GIRLS HAD PREPARED A CONCERT FOR BABA
"We had to go out, one by one, and dance and pretend to sing," said Mehera. "I did it in a very modest, gentle way, not flashily, but very prettily. I mouthed the words from the singer backstage and gestured gracefully to the song."
Naja danced to a song that said:
Dolly was the shyest of the group and did not dance. Baba kept insisting that she must, so she did a few steps in the end. Then the main concert began. "We were determined to entertain Baba," Mehera stated. "We thought, 'He is going to the West so much; he will become too interested there. We must draw his attention to us also!'"
