54. Ba always devoted to work
Ba believed in being busy all the time, doing the various chores herself. During the five or six years, preceding her death, her health began to give way. So two or three girls always stayed with her in her room to help her. But unless she was absolutely helpless, she would not let them do any of her chores. On the contrary, if on any day any of the girls was late, Ba would do her job, as well. Often Bapu would remonstrate with her for straining herself unnecessarily, but it had no effect on her.
