I WAS CONSCIOUSLY AWAKENING
Arnavaz N. Dadachanji
Mehera was standing nearby and Baba turned to her and asked, "Mehera, do you know her?" Mehera replied, "Yes, Baba, she's Arnavaz." I was pleased that Mehera remembered me, as I had seen her only rarely. Baba then turned to me and asked, "Do you know her?" pointing to Mehera. I said, "Yes, Baba, she's Mehera."
Mehera looked very beautiful in a simple plain white cotton sari with a green border. When I looked at her face, radiant with love for Baba, I was deeply touched and loved her immediately. At that moment she carved a niche in my heart that has been there ever since.
It was then that I understood the special position she had with Baba. Nobody ever explained it to me, nobody ever told me, not even Baba, but I knew. It was a natural understanding that came to me. Later I realized the significance of this particular meeting; I was consciously awakening to my deep connection with Mehera.
