RUNAWAY BUS!

Dr. Abdul Ghani

 
Once Baba and his party were traveling in a motor bus from Bombay to Poona and Mr. R. K. was driving the bus that day. When the bus negotiating the tortuous and steep climb in the Western Ghats near Khandala, Mr. R. K. all of a sudden discovered that the brakes were not functioning. The bus began to roll back slowly and Mr. R. K. was nonplussed as to how to control the bus which was slowly but surely heading towards a deep ravine.

The mandali taking in the situation got panic-stricken and one after another began jumping out of the bus for safety. Mr. R. K.'s actions were paralysed for the time-being and he couldn't even think of saving himself. During all this panicky situation Baba kept seated in the bus and refused to move even when a member of the party tried to help him out bodily.

Everybody thought the worst was going to happen as the bus was dangerously approaching the brink of the ravine. Just at this crucial moment Baba was seen to lean heavily on one side of the bus and instantly to the surprise and relief of everyone, the bus came to a stand still only a few inches away from the yawning chasm beneath.
