On March 7th, (1927) Chanji brought all his relatives from Poona to Meherabad. Chanji’s brother, Naoroji H. Dadachanji, had taken a contract to build a boys’ hostel for Parsis in Poona and had been living there with his family for some time. Naoroji’s family consisted of his wife, Bachamai; three daughters, Arnavaz, Nargis and Rhoda; and a four-month old son, Tehemtan.
With them they brought a rather reluctant young relative who lived in their same compound in Poona. His name was Meherjee Ardeshir Karkaria. Meherjee had been induced to come with them on a picnic to Ahmednagar. When the Dadachanji family reached Meherabad, they were deeply moved by the radiance and glowing features of the Master at their first sight of him.
Baba had been gazing at Tehemtan and took the boy in his arms and kissed him for a long time. From that day onward, the Dadachanji family began being absorbed in the Master’s divine love. In the evening, Naoroji, with his family and Meherjee, left.
(Meherjee soon joined Baba and remained His life long disciple. He also travelled with Baba on several of His tours in India and abroad).
(The Dadachanji family has remained till date the foremost Parsee-Zoroastrian family to remain in Beloved Baba’s fold).
