Mother said, "She how happy she is with such a simple gift! What simple faith! She is like a goddess incarnate! How devoted she is to Naren and how she loves this country!"
Sister Nivedita was telling Mother about her intended visit to Darjeeling. When Radhu came in, Mother cried, "Now bow to your elder sisters, Radhu."
"No, no, why should she do that?" Sister Sudhira protested. "Why not?" said Mother, "you are her elder sisters."
