PRACTICALLY NO SLEEP

Bal Natu

 
Baba told everyone some of the hardships Gustadjee had borne, such as the time he had subsisted only on water for six months.

Or how, in the early 1920's, he had been ordered by Baba to sit up all night with Babajan, attending to her every want. He used to return at dawn to Baba's toddy shop, stopping on the way to buy some spinach for one paise that he simply boiled and ate without even adding salt.

This was his entire diet and he would then work all day in the toddy shop until it was time for him to go to Babajan. So for three years, in addition to subsisting on such a meager diet, Gustadjee had practically no sleep.
