WAIT AND SEE
Arnavaz N. Dadachanji
Baba said, "But it's so beautiful. Why don't you wear it?"
Mehera replied "Where can I wear it? I'm old and it won't suit me anymore."
Baba responded, "Old? Just wait and see how beautiful you'll become after six months."
Baba's words rang in my ears as I counted the months and realized that He must have been referring to this time. Mehera had always been kept in the background, but now she would participate in this darshan, and her inner strength and purity would shine for all to see.
We pleaded with her not to cry, telling her that she had to keep her spirits up, that Baba lovers had come thousands of miles and she needed to help them by displaying strength and courage.
Mehera composed herself, the doors were opened, and people poured into the hall and sat in rows on the floor.
As the clock struck nine, Eruch said to all those who had entered, "You have kept your appointment with God."
