Hanging up on the Master

I have an amusing, inspiring and illumining story about Ketan the great.

Last night he phoned our Madrid hotel from America. The switchboard connected him with my room. When I said, “Hello,” Ketan said, “Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! I wanted to speak to Bipin.”

I said, “Give me some news.”

He said, “Oh no, they have made the wrong connection!”

I said again, “Give me some news. What is happening in New York?”

But Ketan just hung up. I was begging him to give me some news, but he got upset and frightened and just hung up.
