48. Bapu : "Tell the beads of your grandma's name, kahana!"
In 1938, when Ba went to Rajkot to take part in the Satyagraha campaign there, Bapu found it difficult to look after Kahana, their grandson, who was his grandma's pet. So one day he said to Kahana, "Tell the beads of your grandma's name and lo! she will straightaway come and stand before you."
"Give me a rosary then," said the little one.
So Bapu gave a rosary to him and he began to tell its beads. "But the grandma has not as yet come," complained Kahana crying, after a day or two. So Bapu sent him back to his mother.
