Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade: When Baba Enjoyed Music At Dwarkamai
I got up early in the morning, said my prayers, and began the usual routine of the day when Narayan Rao's son Govind and brother Bhaoosaheb came. They arrived at Amraoti from Hushangabad some time ago but not finding me and my wife there, came here to see us. We were naturally very glad to see each other and sat talking.
We began our Yoga Vashista somewhat late as Bapusaheb Jog was busy. We saw Sai Maharaj go out and again after he returned to masjid. He was very gracious and repeatedly gave me smoke out of his pipe. It solved many of my doubts and I felt delighted. After the midday Aarti we had our meals and I had a few minutes rest.
Dixit was delayed longer than usual at the masjid. So he began Ramayan later than usual and we could not finish a chapter as it was both long and difficult. Then we saw Sai Maharaj at the masjid. He had music.
There were two dancing girls who sang and danced. Later on there was the Sej Aarti. Sai Maharaj was very kind to Balwant, sent for him, and let him spend the whole of the afternoon with him.
