111. Ba - A poor man's wife
In connection with the cremation of Ba, Shri Shantikumar suggested that some sandal­wood be used for fuel. Bapu protested and said, "Ba was a poor man's wife. How can a poor man afford any sandalwood?"
Whereupon the Superintendent of the Yeravda jail informed Bapu that they had some sandalwood in stock.
Bapu answered, "Then you, I mean the Government, can use sandalwood if you so wish, and, I would have no objection."
