Once a college student from Srinagar, Kashmir, named Kisan Tiku, who had been constantly writing to Baba, came for his darshan. Baba embraced him, but after some time, he asked Tiku to leave with the injunction not to come back to Guruprasad again. The young man did not stand up, but said, “I will sit a while longer, Baba, if you don’t mind.”
Baba signaled to Pukar, who immediately shouted, “Are you going or should I throw you out? If you come to Guruprasad again I will break your leg! You are an ass!” According to Baba’s signs, Pukar reprimanded Tiku vociferously, and finally Tiku was escorted out of the palace.
Ordinarily such behavior would have created an adverse reaction, but in this case Kisan Tiku, on the contrary, eventually came very close in Baba’s love. As wished by Baba, that same day Pukar personally sent him all the way back to Kashmir by train, but Baba kept his “heart” with him. He had come for darshan for the first time and was treated as no newcomer had ever been treated before. God knows what Baba was doing for Tiku.
Kisan Tiku again began writing to Baba, and during a later period of Baba’s seclusion in Meherazad when he was seeing no outsiders, Baba called him there. Tiku speedily came again from far away in Srinagar, Kashmir, and this time Baba greeted him most lovingly and took him in a warm embrace before sending him back the same day.
Observing such actions, no one can truly understand the God-Man’s play!
