Mother had gone to Lucknow to attend a marriage, in 1989. When Shri Mataji came back to Delhi, the flight was delayed and we had arranged a public programme for Shri Mataji in Noida. By nine o’clock Shri Mataji had still not arrived, because of the delayed flight. At nine thirty, Shri Mataji came and addressed the audience, and said She was happy that they had waited so long for Her, and apologised for the unavoidable delay. But Mother is never away from Her children. She is always there.
This point was proved after a few days. A few photographs were taken by Raja Ch.’s father with a very ordinary camera. When the pictures came out and were printed, Shri Mataji was present at that place, Noida, at about eight o’clock. At that time Shri Mataji was in the air, in the plane. In the pictures Mother was on the stage at Noida, and those pictures were taken much earlier. In one of the photos you can see the people preparing the garlands and the aarti tray on the stage, and if Mother had been visible to those people, this would not have been going on.
