When during his detention, in the Aga Khan Palace, Bapu went on fast, Ba often felt that in response to her prayers, God would save him and, instead, take her away. So when a sister from the Ashram visited Bapu at the time, Ba said to her, when the latter was returning home, "Please do not fail to send me the sari, specially made for me out of the yarn spun by Bapu with his own hands. For, I would like it to be used as a shroud when I am dead."
Alas! this pious wish of Ba was at last fulfilled on February 22, 1944.
