AS IF ALOBA HAD BECOME ELECTRIFIED

Bill Le Page

 
Baba was seated on the wide verandah on the large bungalow with the men mandali around Him, and whilst they were there, the man came out of the adjoining house, and began to walk along the road, passing Guruprasad. He wore a hat, walked with his head down, looking neither to left or right, and carrying a satchel. They had noticed that same pattern of behaviour before, and at the same time of the day.

Baba glanced towards the road, and said, 'Look,that man has left again!' and to Aloba, 'Go, go and find out about him, who he is and what he is doing.'

As soon as Baba said this, it was as if Aloba had become electrified. He leapt to his feet, and instead of going via the porch and the stairs, he swung straight over the balustrade, jumping ten feet to the ground. He then ran full speed the hundred plus meters to the gates, and because they were closed, he did another cartwheel over the railings that bordered the property.

Baba, watching all this, exclaimed, 'Look at that fellow! He gives me a heart-attack. To give him any order is a dangerous thing!'

All the mandali watched in amazement as Aloba obeyed Baba, and wondered how the man also did not have a heart-attack with Aloba suddenly materialising before him as he did! In time Aloba returned with all the information one could ever possibly want of a person.
