“His love was something that kept us to Him”
In this talk, Dr. Hoshang Bharucha, devoted lover of Meher Baba, medical doctor, and the author of Meher Baba’s Last Sahavas and Glimpses of Guruprasad, describes his last meeting with Baba on October 18, 1968. He goes on to tell a fascinating love story of a family who traveled a great distance to have Baba’s darshan. They stood in the queue for hours. So many people were in line, the darshan ended before they could even catch a glimpse of Baba. There is a surprise ending to the story of how they did indeed have Baba’s darshan that involved them being locked in a garage!

Entertaining Baba
This silent video highlights some of the joyful entertainment put on for Baba at the Center during the 1958 Sahavas. First, Lenny Willoughby leads the crowd in a rousing version of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,” with a backup band including Henry Kashouty on the trombone. Then, after a video of Baba being carried in His lift-chair by some of Margaret Craske’s dancers, we see a skit put on by a group of men dubbed, The Alligator Club. In the skit, Dana Field portrays a baby being wheeled around in a wheelbarrow “carriage” by his “mother.” Finally, there is a video of more Alligator Club members before a playful shot of Kitty Davy. Baba said that watching the Alligator Club’s work made Him laugh so hard He almost broke His silence.
