Swami Arupananda:

Jayrambati, 8 May, 1913:

Radhu had been unwell and her crazy mother was scolding away. Addressing Mother she said, "You have been giving my daughter medicines to kill her." Beginning with this she went on to say whatever came to her lips, till at last uncle Varada was summoned and he berated her. Mother had reached the limit of her patience and she too rebuked her. "I shall put an end to you today. If I do so, no one on earth can save you. And I shall not be committing a sin but a good deed."

Later she said to me, "I was married to such a husband who never so much as spoke to me slightingly. Once at Dakshineswar I carried some food to his room. Thinking it was Lakshmi and not I, he said to me as I was coming away, 'Close the door as thou goest,' using the familiar second singular (i.e. thou) as is the custom (in Bengali) when addressing juniors or inferiors. I answered, 'Yes, I am doing so.'

"He was embarrassed when he recognized my voice and said, 'Oh, it is you! I thought it was Lakshmi. Please do not mind my addressing you that way.' Even the next day he came before my room and said, 'Look, my dear, I could not sleep last night, wondering how I could speak so rudely to you.' And now we see how this creature abuses me day and night!...."
