94. Ba's faith in Bapu
During his detention in the Aga Khan Palace, one day Sushilabehn asked Bapu to tell them the story of his own life, rather than tell them some other stories, as he had done a few times on being requested by Manubehn. So Bapu began to relate his autobiography. Talking one day of how Ba had overcome her orthodox views and ways, he said, "In this she received considerable help from the other women members of the family. They all brought home to her repeatedly that her first and foremost duty was to follow her husband. In doing so, they argued, even if some of the traditional observances were infringed she would incur no sin. I must say that as Ba gave me her heart, her head followed gradually in its wake. Thus, she has taken part in all my activities intelligently and enthusiastically."
