What Name ?

Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiA truck driver around the age of twenty-eight from Pithoragarh came to  see Baba at Kainchi for the first time in 1966.

He offered pranaam(a respectful greeting made by joining the palms or   bowing at the feet) and Baba asked him, "What name?"

He immediately replied, "Lalit Mohan."

Baba said, "That's a lie, Laxman Singh."

The man was surprised to hear his real name from Baba, and by way of  explanation he said, "Baba, you are right. My name is Laxman Singh, and  the members of my family call me by this name. In my childhood, when I  was first registered in school, my family wanted a better name to be  written in the school register, and they chose lalit Mohan."

This incident impressed the man so much that he became Baba's devotee, and later, the driver of Baba's jeep.
