COWAS MANEK VESUNA
One of men who was meeting Baba for the first time was Cowas Manek Vesuna, 31. Cowas had heard of Baba in 1945 from Dr. Alu Khambatta, who was then living in Navsari. Cowas was in charge of a post office in Sachin, and no sooner had he been given the Master's Discourses, than the railway line between Navsari and Sachin was breached, and all traffic remained suspended for nine days.
As all mail was halted, he had nothing else to do but read the volumes of discourses one after another.
Cowas' first reading of the Discourses convinced him that Meher Baba was the person who was worthy to be a "true guru." He knew he was destined to have Baba as his Guide, and his first physical contact with Baba strengthened that feeling. About his first meeting in Surat, Cowas later related, "Baba looked directly into my eyes, as if to confirm that age-old connection of the past."
