MUMMY WAS VERY DISTURBED ABOUT HAVING DISPLEASED BABA
But Baba was also exacting. Once He had ordered some chapatis for the
masts early in the morning. Since the day's chapatis had not yet been
rolled and baked, Mummy sent the previous day's stale chapatis for the
masts. Baba was very upset and sent the chapatis back with a message:
"I do not want my masts to get sick from your stale chapatis."
Mummy was very disturbed about having displeased Baba, and she began
to cry. When Baba came to the kitchen and saw her crying, He said,
"Do you remember the Song of Mira — 'Make me Your slave, my Lord'?"
