DHARMADHIKARI G. K.

DHARMADHIKARI G. K.

K. Dharmadhikari of Betul was secretary of Kaka Saheb Kalelkar as associate of Mahatma Gandhi who came to meet Meher Baba.

The result of Chanji's meetings with Mahatma Gandhi was that Gandhi sent his colleague D. B. Kalelkar to see the Meherabad ashram. Kaka Saheb Kalelkar, 54, accompanied by his secretary, Mr. Dharmadhikari, was brought by Adi Sr., Nusserwan Satha and Chanji from Poona on the evening of 22 July 1939. Baba had already gone up the hill when they arrived, but knowing that Gandhi's representative was traditional in his views, Baba had instructed four or five of the men mandali that they should remain in their respective rooms and pretend to be meditating when Kalelkar was given a tour the following day. The two visitors were given the privilege of sleeping that night in the Rahuri Cabin.

In 1958, G. K. Dharmadhikari of Betul was  walking away after taking darshan, but on Eruch's remarking that he had found out about Baba through Bhau, he was called back and given another embrace.
