14 September"Nolini-da, I have written a poem on Amrita-da. I would be extremely grateful if you would translate it into English."
"What is wrong with you?"
"Nothing is wrong, but if you would translate it I would be very glad, grateful and proud."
"In that case, leave it here on the table." Smiling, he said, "Sincerity always pays."
