MAY 26, 1964 – JAWAHARLAL NEHRU “COMES’ TO BABA.
PREVIOUSLY IN 1963, Baba had instructed Amar Singh Saigal to inform the Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, to come to Guruprasad to meet him. Although Saigal informed him of Baba’s wish, Nehru did not take the time to come.
After Baba’s arrival in Poona that year, when Bhau was on night duty, daily Baba asked him, “I am in seclusion and what will happen if Nehru comes abruptly?”
Bhau replied, “Nehru won’t come like that, Baba. If he wishes to see you, first he will send someone to make an appointment, and when he does, we will inform him that no meeting is possible because you are in seclusion.”
“What will happen if he comes without an appointment?” Baba asked.
“It cannot happen, Baba. Nehru is too busy!”
“But if it does?”
Thus the questions and answers would go back and forth every day with the watchmen.
But on May 26th, at about 2:30 P.M., Baba announced to the mandali, “Jawaharlal will come to me soon; he will have to come!”
Baba also commented, “Due to his sheer energy and will power, Jawaharlal has recovered rapidly from his recent stroke. But if he gets a second heart attack, he will not survive but will pass away instantly.”
Twenty-four hours after Baba’s statement, Nehru’s death was announced over the radio. Eruch’s brother Meherwan phoned the news to Guruprasad at 2:30 P.M. on May 27th. Only then did Bhau grasp how Nehru could “come” to Baba without an appointment.. .
