Meanwhile at the bungalow, on that same day, as Katie was carrying a kettle of hot tea, she slipped, fell and got burned when the hot tea spilled on her. Kaka was shaving at the time in his room, and seeing her fall, went to help her. At that moment, Baba appeared and harshly castigated Kaka. He demanded, “Why did you disobey me? According to the list of orders, touching women is forbidden!” Kaka replied he was sorry; that he forgot, and was only trying to help her. Baba scolded, “Had you taken the order seriously, you would have remembered it. You think you have done a good deed, but you have no idea how much you have hurt me. Even if Katie had died, you should not have touched her. Then I would have been proud of how obedient you were. But her fall has made you fall, in disregarding my order.” Later, Baba forgave Kaka.
