Meanwhile, Baba had assigned different duties to Jal Kerawala, among them being to find a good boy, befitting the ideal description, and bring him to Baba. Jal would daily bring one boy after another, all of whom Baba would feed and give new clothes to, and then return to Jal. This saddened Jal, who thought himself a failure in meeting Baba’s requirements. He had no idea that Baba’s work was something quite different, which he was doing while feeding and clothing the boys. Whenever questioned about the work done with the various types of boys who had come to him, Baba remarked, “Through them I am working with the youth of the future.”

About that picture of Baba with the cricket team in 1907, Baba remarked, “For so many years I was searching for the one ideal boy, but when I saw that photograph, I thought: ‘I have found the ideal boy.’ “
