After Ba's death, Shrimati Sushilabehn —the wife of Manilal Gandhi and Bapu's daughter-in-law — came from South Africa to meet him. While talking to him, she just remarked casually, "Bapu, you seem to be feeling so lonely."
At this Bapu grew serious and answered, "In my life Ba was woven like warp and woof. So
without her I do feel, indeed, very lonely."
