18 September

Amrita-da said to me: "Chinmoy, come into my room. Tomorrow is my birthday, but I have started observing my birthday today. I want to give you some special food since you are a special person."

"Amrita-da, tomorrow I shall have something special for you," I said.

His immediate reply: "Since it is not easy to become a special person, I have to be satisfied in getting something special from you."

"Who says that you are not a special person?"

"Well, he who is a special person knows it and feels it."

"Amrita-da, who can outdo you in an argument?"

"Ah, I see. In that case I withdraw my point. I am indeed a special person when it is a matter of argumentation!"
