During the New Life (1951), one of the bullocks from the caravan had been given to a friend of Kumar’s named Lekh Raj. Lekh Raj was the founder of Nanhi Duniya, a school for deaf and mute children in Dehra Dun. When Baba gave darshan in Dehra Dun back in November 1953, the children came with a long flower garland and crown for him. On his birthday that year, the children sent a unique greeting card. It was a small portrait of Baba painted on a sliver of tree bark, and beneath it they wrote: “Give us speech, O silent Meher Baba!”
Baba sent this telegram in response:
Your love for me speaks more than any speech, and the only thing worthy of hearing is my Word of words. I send my love blessing to you all of Nanhi Duniya.
