During this period, one occasional visitor was Minochar Nusserwan Kharas, 22, of Karachi. Minoo, as he was called, had come to Nasik to attend the Police Training School. Minoo had always been interested in finding God and had many questions about the meaning of life. And although he had been raised a Zoroastrian, he had put up pictures in his room of Christ, Ram, Buddha and various holy men.

In January of 1932, a barber came one morning to shave Minoo and, when he saw all the pictures hung around the room, he asked Minoo, "What in the world are you doing here in this Police Training School?" He pointed away from Minoo's quarters and suggested Minoo visit a certain holy man who resided nearby.

"To whom are you referring?" Minoo asked.

"Shri Meher Baba," the barber replied.

Minoo had heard this name a few years before in Karachi and seen Baba's photo in a Gujarati newspaper.

On Sunday, 17 January 1932, Minoo went to Baba's residence at the Circle Cinema, where he met Ramjoo, Vishnu and Chanji, who informed Baba that a visitor had come. About his first meeting, Minoo later wrote:

Within minutes ... the man called Meher Baba suddenly came out to the compound and stood in front of me ... Then and there I felt within me my voice saying, "Minoo, here is God whom you have been searching for." And from that moment of spontaneous joy and bliss, my search ended ... The moment Baba's eyes fell on me, for the first time in my life I felt a most peculiar and indescribable sensation in each and every atom of my whole body. It was love at first sight.

And from that moment of spontaneous joy and bliss, my search ended ... The moment Baba's eyes fell on me, for the first time in my life I felt a most peculiar and indescribable sensation in each and every atom of my whole body. It was love at first sight. 

"What do you want?" Baba asked.Minoo was silent, but thought, "If you are real, I need not speak. You know what I crave. In fact, you know everything."

Baba spelled on the board, "I have heard you completely. It is since your birth that this instinct is there within you [to find God]. Do not worry. Do as I say. Forget the 'I.' Every night go to sleep with thoughts of me."

"You are connected with me since past lives. I have to repay the debt I owe you. Not only do you love me, but I love you."

Thus Minoo Kharas came into the Master's contact and began visiting him as often as he could.
