News had already reached Bombay by the evening of the 31st. Lovers rushed to the station to catch a train or a bus or got into cars and taxies to leave for Meherabad. Some arrived soon after Baba’s body had been placed in the Tomb. Padri and Chhagan stayed the whole night in the Tomb on Friday the 31st. (January 1969).
