MEHERA WAS THE QUEEN OF HEARTS
She told us stories of saints and Perfect Masters — Tukaram, Tulsidas, Dyaneshwar and others. We listened with rapt attention as she spoke so beautifully that it was as if the scenes were taking place right before our eyes.
The stories we most enjoyed were about Lord Krishna, how mischievous He was with His Beloved Radha and the gopis (milkmaids) and how they danced the divine dance in ecstasy. Sometimes Mehera would giggle as she spoke, showing the childlike quality of her heart.
