All through her life always Ba paid great heed to the smallest detail to Bapu's food — the extreme cleanliness of the utensils used, the proper preparation of bread, vegetables, etc. Even during her last serious illness, just a few days before her death, one day she said to Manubehn, "Bapu's bottle for molasses is now empty. Have you got more of it ready?"
Manubehn replied, "Yes, grandma, it is on fire and will soon be liquefied, when I shall
pour it into the bottle."
Ba rejoined, "But if you want any immediately, I have plenty of it."
