MOHKAM & KUSUM SINGH

MOHKAM & KUSUM SINGH

Coming from Delhi, Kusum Singh’s husband, Mohkam, was a cynical sort of fellow and was skeptical about Baba’s claim to godhood. He was reading the popular science-fiction novel Chariots of the Gods, in which it claimed that God was an astronaut from another planet. As they sat before Baba, he nagged his wife and told her to ask Baba which planet he was from. Kusum held up her hand and said, “Baba, my husband wants to know which planet you are from, or which you belong to?

Baba laughed and remarked, “I do not come from any planet-all planets come from me!”

Mohkam was having trouble with his back and Kusum asked if they should have Dr. Kenmore adjust it. Baba remarked, “No, I am the biggest doctor. My nazar is on him!”

In mid-November 1961, Manohar Sakhare and his wife Mona, Kusum Mohkam Singh and other staunch lovers of Delhi wrote to Adi about their idea to set up an information booth with Baba literature at the Indian Industries Fair, soon to be inaugurated in Delhi. Adi consulted Baba about it, who gave his approval, and a parcel of pamphlets and books was sent. Many came to know of Baba through their efforts, which also proved a catalyst for their counterparts in America during the World's Fair in New York in 1964.
