Murli Kale was Kalemama's son and was with Meher Baba since the Prem Ashram boys days of 1927. Murli and his elder brother Shreedhar were amongst the fist 10 students of the Hazrat Babajan School at Meherabad in 1927. He was also Baba's New Life Companion. Murli later became a qualified Homeopath, and attended the Homeopathic dispensary at Meherabad Ashram, as a Doctor. He gave medicines to the mandli and the poor villagers. Later Murli accepted the conditions of New Life and joined New Life. Baba highly appreciated Murli for his implicit obedience and jolly mood in adverse conditions as a Mandli and as a New Life Companion. There are many humorous stories of his jolly mood during the hardships of Ashram days, available in various books and references on Meher Baba. Murli also wanted to go to England for higher studies in Homeopathy and Baba had his passport made, which he but could not use. Later in 1951 Baba, through a New Life Circular permitted Murli to settle at Jabalpur and practice homeopathy, and Murli came to Jabalpur in 1952. At Jabalpur he started a Meher Charitable Dispensary, and a number of new Baba lovers came to know of Baba through him, and he was always a source of joy and inspiration for the Baba lovers. He often visited Baba during the darshan programms. He married Sulbha and a son Niket was born to them. When the child was born, Murli sent a letter to Baba from the child himself, with the thumb impression of the child.  Baba in His reply acknowledged that it was perhaps for the first time, He was writing a letter  to a child who was not even a month old. On  Feb 6th, 1977, Murli became one with his Beloved Meher. Later Murli's son Niket married Meera, one of Meher Baba's very well known disciple Pankhraj's daughter, and they still carry the torch of Meher Baba's love ....
