CHATTI BABA'S PECULIAR HABIT
Narrated by Krishna Nair
One day Baba asked me to go and ask Chatti Baba whether he wanted bath. I did so and at first he laughed, but then agreed. Baba gave him a bath. During the bath Baba gestured to me to ask Chatti Baba whether he felt cold — I asked him and he replied, "Cold? I'm on fire. I am burning up!"
I felt puzzled and asked, "You took bath with icy-cold water and yet you say that you are burning!"
Chatti Baba looked at Baba and said, "This fire is burning me."
