Pravrajika Bharatiprana:





Udhbodan: I was then a pupil in Sister Nivedita's School at 17 Bosepara Lane (Baghbazar, Calcutta). One day, after school, Sister Sudhira took four or five of us girls to Mother's house. Mother was sitting cross-legged in the Master's room: Kusum-didi was reading a book. As we bowed to her, Mother said, "Sit down, my dears." She asked Sister Sudhira, "I do hope you are well? So, school is over now?  Are these your pupils?"





"Yes Mother, they are," Sister Sudhira replied.





"What nice girls," Mother said. Then observing me, she asked, "From which family does this one come? She looks a nice girl."





"From a brahmin family, Mother, they live near here."





Then Mother asked Kusum-didi to read from the book. I believe it was a copy of Krishna-Charita. Mother laughed when she heard the story of how Shri Krishna would steal curd, milk, and cheese.





"What a naughty boy!" everyone said.
