On the first day of the sahavas, November 4th 1955, along the way from Meherazad to Meherabad, Baba picked up Meherjee Satha at Akbar Press. As the car wended its way to Meherabad, suddenly a buffalo turned in front of them, and Eruch hit the brakes. The car swerved and was narrowly saved from plunging into a ditch by the side of the road.
Baba asked, “Who took my name?”
Eruch said, “I was speaking with you so, for me, there was no question of taking your name.”
Kaka Baria said his attention was focussed on looking after Baba’s personal belongings, and Meherjee Satha replied that since he was travelling in the same car as Baba, there was no need for him to repeat his name.
Baba reminded him, “Remember to always take my name when anything untoward is about to happen.”
