Dr. Ghani was staying with Baba in Mahabaleshwar. He was joking with Baba on May 22nd, (1947) and when he said something in a lighter vein about Baba, Baba at once composed this rhyme about himself as Fire:

“Baba is Fire!
When you feel cold
And sit near the fire,
It drives out your cold
And makes you perspire.

When you feel hungry
And cook on the fire,
It gives you your food
For which you aspire.

But if you, like a fool,
Try to play with the fire,
It may burn you so badly
That would make hell admire.”
