17 Sep 2012 – Kitty Davy’s obedience to Baba’s order

Kitty Davy was supervising the kitchen and had Baba’s order not to let any food go to waste. She was daily ordering fresh bread from the market, but each day some would be left over. One day, Kitty collected the stale bread and made bread pudding. No one liked the dish, so there was a lot left over. Now what should she do with it she wondered. Baba’s order was not to waste anything, so she could not throw it away. Failing to find a solution, Kitty sat down and consumed the dish herself in four hours, thus carrying out Baba’s wish.

 Cooking food in the other bungalow, Naja and Katie would send it over to Baba’s bungalow. One day, with Baba’s permission, bhajiyas were ordered from outside. After eating them, no one had any appetite left. The food as usual came from the other bungalow, but none touched it. Kitty was managing the kitchen and, according to Baba’s order, would not waste anything. So she sat down in the kitchen, and once again started consuming the food all by herself.

Mehera observed her and asked, “For heaven’s sake Kitty, what are you doing? You will die.”

Kitty replied, “I will die, but die obeying!” When Mehera told Baba about it, he had a good laugh. Baba then forbade Kitty from eating any more. Otherwise, knowing Kitty, she would have kept on eating the whole night.
