Sheela’s father Bhau Kalchuri joined Meher Baba as one of the mandali (intimate disciples) in 1953. Four years later, Baba called her mother, Rama, Sheela and her brother, Mehernath to live in His near proximity, in Meherabad. The Kalchuri’s had many opportunities to be in the Beloved’s presence. Sheela’s first-person account paints a vivid, intimate portrait of life near Meher Baba, from the perspective of a child and teenager. The book details an inside view of what it was like to be around Baba in an intimate environment.
