12. Ba's Simplicity
Among Bapu's close associates, Ba's belongings,—the bed-roll and the box,—were the minimum. None could ever beat her, in spite of their best efforts to have the fewest wants and yet living a life of beautiful simplicity. Referring to this aspect of her personality, Bapu once said, "Even I, who have always been so keenly intent on observing uttermost simplicity, have twice over of what Ba possesses."
