Major Chadwick's Day - 17.4.2010 (7)
« on: April 13, 2010, 10:56:01 AM »
Day By Day entry 31.3.1945:-

One night, a few days ago, after supper, when Bhagavan was
resting on his cot in the verandah, east of His Hall, something
funny took place.  He was facing South.  Chadwick was sitting
behind Bhagavan's back.  Soon after Bhagavan took His seat
and leaned on the cushions, Chadwick from behind stealthily,
and unnoticed fanned Bhagavan.  When Bhagavan turned and looked,
Chadwick withdrew the fan and remained still.  When Bhagavan
turned His face South, Chadwick resumed fanning again.  Bhagavan
truned round and Chadwick stopped.  Bhagavan was left wondering
how He got the breeze.  Chadwick then laughed out and Bhagavan
joined in the laughter. 

This shows how even with such an eminent Master, a devotee
can play and both can enjoy the joke like children.
