Sarosh and Viloo’s son, Merwan, returned from England and was to get married to Anita, his Swiss fiancée. One day, he and Sarosh came to Guruprasad, and Merwan said, “Baba, I want your blessings on my wedding day.”

Baba gestured, “Granted,” and instructed that after the wedding in Ahmednagar, the bride and groom, and Sarosh and Viloo should come to Guruprasad to see him.

The wedding was held on Thursday, June 27th, 1963. That day, Baba asked Eruch to phone Sarosh and find out how the preparations were going. Irritated, Sarosh shouted over the telephone, “Tell Baba it is raining hellishly here! We have had to change the wedding arrangements to inside.” When Eruch related this, Baba just listened and did not comment.

The next morning, the wedding party came to Guruprasad. Among those present with Baba were Adi and Rhoda Dubash. After the usual greetings, Baba asked Viloo and Sarosh about the wedding. Viloo complained, “Baba, it rained so much!”

Baba replied, “Well, your son asked for my blessing and I gave it to him.” Turning to Rhoda Dubash, he pointed his finger at her and stated, “Ask her what happened on her wedding day.”

A similar incident occurred to Rhoda back in 1945, in Pakistan. Not believing in Baba, she had issued a challenge to him, saying in her heart: “If you are what they say you are, you will send me heaven’s blessings on my wedding day!” And likewise, it had poured down rain that day. Rhoda had never mentioned this incident or her challenge to Baba. When Baba addressed her, she was so taken by surprise, she could only gape. In her heart she had known it was Baba who had sent his blessings on her wedding day, but now God himself was confirming it.

Eruch said, “Well Rhoda, what happened on your wedding day? We are waiting.”

Rhoda began to narrate the story and while she was speaking, Baba interrupted to remind her, “You did not tell them that, after throwing this challenge at me, you completely forgot about it until after the wedding,” which was indeed true.
