During the detention of Bapu and his party in the Aga Khan Palace, in Poona, one day Dr. Gilder received as a gift a parcel of mangoes to mark the 29th anniversary of his wedding. On this happy occasion, accordingly, he was the recipient of congratulations from all quarters. Incidentally, however, Ba asked Bapu, "How many years ago is it that we were married ?"
Bapu burst into laughter and then, as it were, to tease Ba he said to those present
at the time, "It seems Ba, too, wishes to celebrate her wedding anniversary."
Whereupon all joined in the laughter, not excluding Ba herself, though at first she had
felt somewhat annoyed at what Bapu had said.
