The memories travel with me each day .. they reside by my side , by my reach, by ever within the read of some immediacy .. that is him , Babuji .... and all that was his and his mind was there for me .. and is for the rest .. each moment a craft to be learned to be in awe of and more so now when his absence be real .. and unadjustable ..”

What a life .. what a mind .. what exuberance .. and what an introduction of his for this ..let me be .. in his Glory and in his thought .. that enough shall be my wanting and no more .. for there shall be space for none after ..”
