One day, in the Ashram at Sabarmati, at noon, when it was extremely hot, Ba was seen going in the direction of the kitchen. She was in search of Pyarelalji, who had not as yet reached Bapu's room to massage the latter's feet with ghee before he had his midday rest, as was his daily practice. On the way
Sushilabehn just asked Ba if there was any particular job to be done at the
moment as she seemed to be in such hurry, and if so, she would at once undertake
to do it.
"No, Pyarelal would not like to miss the opportunity to massage Bapu. However, please
go and find out where he is. But if he is still having his food, then please do
not call him."
