I'VE GOT TO GET WELL!
Arnavaz N. Dadachanji
Baba was in Bombay, this time staying in the family home of Kaka Baria, one of His mandali. Since Baba had not placed any restriction on our visiting Him, we could go at any time, and when we went for His darshan, my mother told Baba that Dara had double pneumonia. As we were taking our leave, Kaka Baria came to us and said, "Do you know what happened? Yesterday Baba, out of the blue, told me, 'Bring antiphlogiston. I want to apply it to my chest. I've got double pneumonia.'"
Kaka Baria knew that Baba did not have double pneumonia, but
knowing the unusual ways in which Baba worked and having been
trained to obey His every order without question, he brought the
salve quickly. Baba, applying it to His chest, said again, "I've got
double pneumonia. I've got fever and I've got to get well!" Dara's
condition improved rapidly and he recovered. If Kaka Baria had not
told us this story, we would not have known how directly Baba had
intervened to save Dara's life.
