HE HAD A LIVELY LAUGH

Bal Natu

 
Baba was on one of His mast tours. The compartment in which the Baba party was traveling was not crowded. Two elderly ladies were sitting on the other side.

During the journey they saw Baba using gestures to convey some instructions. The conversation was either in Gujarati or English. Baba's personality naturally arrested the attention of the two ladies and they closely, though not directly, watched Baba's gestures.

One of the venerable old ladies conveyed with motherly affection to her companion, "How proud a mother would be to have such a robust and handsome son. But what bad luck that he is dumb!"

Some of the mandali overheard this remark, spoken softly in Hindi. When they told this to Baba, He had a lively laugh.
