Baba saw on old woman who had no means of livelihood and no family of her own.
Her suffering touched him, and he immediately took her under his protection.
He gave her a place to live in the ashram and provided her with food and other facilities in her old age.
Later she needed personal care and was unable to cope with life at the ashram, so Baba arranged for her boarding and lodging in Haldwani at the house of Vinod Joshi, the manager of Kainchi ashram. Joshi's mother looked after the old woman, and when she died, Baba got her last rites performed by Purnanand Tewari and her twelfth day rites performed at the ashram.
