Mehera J. Irani

"Now we'll go home," Baba told us. As we were walking back through the shade of that lovely grove of pine trees Baba heard whispering and giggling behind Him. Baba turned around to see Mani and Katie whispering together and looking as if they wanted to say something to Him, but did not know how to begin.

So Baba asked, "What were you talking about? What is it?"

"Oh, Baba," they replied, "we would love to learn to swim."

"Swim?" Baba said. "You want to learn how?"

"Yes, Baba. How lovely it is here. The sea is not at all rough. This is the perfect place to learn!"

Baba turned and looked at me. "If Mehera says yes, if she wants to learn how to swim, then you can, too, otherwise, no."

"Mehera, say yes, say yes," they cried.

I told Baba, "Baba, I hadn't thought of it, but it would be nice to learn. I really don't mind either way."

"No," Baba said, "the others can only learn if you want to."

"Mehera, say yes, say yes," Katie and Mani together begged me.

So I said, "Yes, Baba, it would be nice."
