The same day, Meherjee was depressed because he had been dismissed as Baba's personal attendant. Baba first teased him, but then he joked with him to appease him.

The following night, Baba beckoned him...

"Ask of me whatever you want and I will give it to you. The sky, the depths, the earth, the waters — anything that you may desire. You have only to ask for it." Meherjee humbly replied that he did not want anything.Baba insisted, 

 "Oh for God's sake, ask for something! I am happy tonight and I will give you anything you want." Meherjee persisted, saying that he did not want anything other than to serve him well. So Baba reinstated him as his orderly, and Meherjee was satisfied.
