Remembering 3 handkerchiefs..

Mani S Irani's 1962 diaries are being put on Tavern Talk and I have the pleasure(?) of translating the Gujerati writing along with Meherwan Jessawala. I was particularly delighted with this snippet which shows Baba's divine and human sides so clearly.

Baba gestures "I am able to control and remember everything in the Tri-Bhuvan (three worlds) but minding these three handkerchiefs and remembering where they are is a headache." The God side of the God-man can keep an eye on and remember everything in Creation and beyond, but the Man side gets a headache from just having to mind His three handkerchiefs!! Such a Beloved, such wonderful grace to be able to recognise Him in this Advent. Jai Baba.
