Mridu-di's affection

Mridu-di got married at the age of twelve. Her husband died when she was thirteen years old. She was so fortunate. At that tender age, she was able to place herself at the feet of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

Such affection she had for me! From the street I would hear her call, “Hey, Chinmoy! Hey, Chinmoy!” And if she did not see me throughout the whole day, in the evening she used to go to my sisters' house to bark and scream: “Where has Chinmoy gone today?”

Even if she saw me three times during the day, she always showed the same affection. Her affection was in screaming and shouting! Others used to say she was crazy.
