Today is 19th December On the same day in 1997 Gopal Rao (84), grandson of Nanasaheb Nimonkar passed away. He's the little boy in the photo of Baba going to Lendi Baugh.
He used to sit on Baba’s lap and eat Prasad given to him by Sai Baba! Whenever the family members asked him to describe Sai Baba, he used to say "Saibaba was very handsome. He was tall, healthy and very graceful!! Whenever he used to sit in the Dwarakamai on his seat while talking to the devotees, he looked like God to us! He used to prepare ‘Khichadee in the Copper Handee kept on the burning fire of the fire-place,[ the Choola] ! To my surprise, I have always seen him stirring it directly with his own hand without any big spoon or any long sapine!!’’ Sai Baba’s eyes were very big and attractive with a sharp look that used to penetrate in to the heart of the person very easily. His eyes used to capture the heart of the person immediately. But, they were also full of great love and compassion like the ocean of love for the human beings.
