                  For the next ten years detailed dates are very hard to obtain.

 

                  May - Merwan was doing his final exams at Deccan College.On one of those days he was riding his bicycle the College along Malcolm Tank Road near Char Bawdi, when he noticed large crowd surrounding the old lady Hazrat Babajan who was seated under a neem tree. Merwan had passed by & knew her, she was well regarded by the local Mohammedan community, but he never paid much attention to her.

                As he rode by he happened to glance at her & at that moment she looked at him & nodded to  him to come to her. He got off his bike & walked over to her. She was extremely happy to see  him, she stood up with her arms spread out wide, embraced Merwan as if she had just found  her lost son. Tears ran down her wrinkled cheeks as she repeated " Mere piarra beta" .." My Beloved Son "......)

                  Merwan was speechless & stood motionless like a statue in front of her. He felt as if he had an electric current throughout his body. He was also experiencing his consciousness merging with the Ocean of Bliss. Although very dazed he still managed slowly to walk home. He left  his bicycle behind.

He gradually lost interest in all his studies and sports.

For the next 7 months, he would be with Babajan everyday & late into the night. They seldom spoke.

 

             1914

 

                        One night in January, as he was about to leave, he kissed her hand and she in turn held his face in her hands.

                  She looked into his eyes & kissed him on the forehead, she then turned to her followers and pointed with her little finger to Merwan and said " This is my beloved son,..... He will one day shake the world and all of humanity will be benefited by him". Merwan just stood there, he had lost his grip of his mind somehow he walked home, arriving at 11PM, he went straight to bed.

                  For the next 9 months Merwan lived without sleep, his eyes were galssy- staring, sitting motionless  for hours, his diet was almost non-existant. During this time, W.W.1 had started in June. 

                  Merwan decided to go to Udwada, on the coast in Gujarat, a holy place for Parsis in India, the original fire was brought here from Persia 1,200 years prior & the original fire was still burning. Merwan went  with 6 others, they spent 3 days there and each day Merwan would lead them to prayer in the temple.

They would then sit under the palm trees or walk along the beach. Merwan had paid for everyone's fares & expenses. From Udwada they went to Navsari, Surat & Broach - along the western coast,  staying 2 days in each town. When  they arrived in Bombay, they stayed at Panday's Dharmashala   ( rest house ). They hired a boat & visited the Gharapuri Caves on Elephanta Island, some 3 miles from Bombay harbour in the Arabian Sea.

                 Two days later, they went back to Poona. Merwan was introduced by his friend Khodu a recent immigrant from Persia - Beheram  known as Behramji - he was 22 years old. Merwan started to teach him to read & write Persian - he came daily.

 

             1915

                  April - Merwan left by train for Raichur, but got off at Kedgaon - 50 miles      ( 80 Kms ) from Poona. He enquired  to see Narayan Maharaj - he was told to go to the temple of Dattatrey, Narayan was seated on his throne. When he saw Merwan, he asked the crowd to disperse. He rose & went up to Merwan and led him to throne and made he sit on it. He then garlanded him from one from around his neck & offered him mango juice. Merwan stayed over-night & left the next morning back to Poona. He was back within 24 hours.

                  Several days later, Merwan & 3 others went to Bombay, where they met the Chargeman of the city, a 6th plane saint- Tipu Baba, then they went to Aurangabad where they met a 7th plane saint -  Bane Miyan Baba - his master was Sai Baba. Two of the men went back to Poona, Behramji & Merwan then went to Nagpur to meet Tajuddin Baba, upon arrival they had to take a tonga for another 7 kms to the town of Vaki Shariff. As they approached Taj, he was holding roses in his hand and he then limped towards Merwan, silently, he then caressed Merwan's cheeks and forehead with the roses. They then left for the station - Taj called out "My rose, my heavenly rose ". As the train pulled out, Merwan muttered "Taj, Taj !  My Taj ".

                  Later, Merwan went with his friend Khodu to see Sai Baba at Shirdi, as they approached the village, the villagers  had blocked the road, they had instructions from Sai, not allowing anyone through. They  waited under tree, even through the night - it was very cold & Khodu shivered all night. In the afternoon, Sai sent word he'll see them ( he was 77 at the time ) - he was seated  in his mosque "The Mother of Mercy" . Khodu was beckoned first & when he bowed down to him Sai slapped his back hard. He then enquired who his friend was ? He  replied " His name is Merwan......." Sai went off & came back, this time Merwan was streched full length on the ground. Sai uttered in a very deep voice "Parvardigar". Merwan rose & Sai paid obseisance to him & cried out "Parvardigar" & beckoned the  two to walk on & again for the third time he cried out "Parvardigar". 

                       Immediately, Merwan & Khodu walked to a Hindu temple 3 miles away. It was the Khandoba temple & Upasni Maharaj was seated on its steps. As Merwan approached, Upasni stood up, picked up a stone & threw it with all his might & it struck him on his forehead, exactly on the spot Babajan kissed him. Baba always had a perminent scar . After spending the rest of the day & night with Upasni ( Khodu was waiting outside ). The next day Khodu took Merwan back to Poona & cleaned the deep wound & dressed it.

               Once a month, Merwan would visit Sai Baba & Upasni Maharaj. At the same time, he had a job as a clerk, then  a school teacher at Nargol village in Gujarat, he lasted only a few months & returned to Poona.

 

             1916

He moved with Rustom & his family to Calcutta. After 3 months he returned to Poona. Whilst in Calcutta he was pesterd by an owner ( Cavas Khateo ) of a theatre troupe - Khatao Theatrical Company. He was offered management of the company. Merwan  turned him down numerous times, now in Poona, he wrote to Cavas he'll take job. The troupe travelled to Lahore. Several weeks later, Cavas dies & the company is disbanded. Merwan returns to Poona. During this long periods, Merwan was pounding his forehead continually. Meanwhile, Merwan's father - Sheriar is taken to Bombay for an operation. Merwan took over the running of the Sheriar Cafe.

 

             1917

 

                   In the beginning of the year, Sheriar sold his tea shop, borrowed money, obtained a licence to open a toddy shop on Sachapir Street. Merwan worked every day with his father.

               Feb.( 16th ) Merwan composed a gazal and posted it under a pen name of Huma - to a Gujarati writer - Soma ( Sohrab Muncherji Desai ) of Navsari.

                  April - Merwan was invited to attend Upasni's foundation-laying ceremony of a medical dispensary in the town-ship of Sion in Bombay. Merwan met a disciple of Upasni's - Gustadji.... Merwan returned to Poona & worked at his father's toddy shop working 2 hours per day & visiting Babajan every night.

                 One day, Merwan's friend Bailey who had already enlisted in the British Navy & had active duty, was on leave & he met Merwan & persuaded him to join the Navy as well. He was taken to Navy headquaters & signed up - his family was not aware of his actions, When his father found out he refused to give him permission to join - he went to the headquaters & used his influence to remove Merwan's name. Before Bailey was posted overseas ( Aden ) , he went with Merwan to get Babajan's blessing - she foretold certain events that would affect him some years later.

              In July, Upasni Maharaj moved from Khandoba's temple to the village of Sakori. Merwan was a regular visitor. His new abode used to be cemetary grounds. Merwan would travel by train to Sakori and he would make many over the next year.

 

             1918

 

                  August ( 1st ) Behramji procured a licquor licence ( in his name ) & in partnership with Merwan opened a toddy shop at 723 Kasba Peth Road on a fishing wharf of a river. Soon afterwards, his friends started to call him Merwanji, then later to Merwan Seth. He was still pounding his forehead daily, for up to 4 hours.

                 October - Sai Baba dropped his body & was buried.

                December - Merwan Seth's baby sister Maniji was born - he was 24 years old.     

            1919

                  Later during the year, Sheriar Irani ( Merwan Seth's father ) purchased the house across the lane from Pumpkin House - the new address was ;   765  Butler Moholla - this house was more spacious, which was needed for the 7 children.

                 August - Merwan Seth and many others from Poona & Bombay went to see Upasni at Sakori. After blessing the Zoroastrian group they left by horse tonga in the evening to the train station in Rahata. They all took the train but Merwan Seth & Behramji got off at Belapur & indicated they were going to see Tajuddin Baba in Nagpur.

                 During the year, Merwan Seth built at his expense the first temple in Sakori for Upasni - to perform his arti. Later on, he & Sadashiv went with Upasni to Benares to honor Sai Baba. Upasni had taken Sai's charge which upset many Muslims that a Hindu would be chosen & Brahamin's were upset that he would even honour a Musim. Large amounts of food had been bought for this big occassion & many refused to eat, so Upasni ordered the food to be thrown in the river after the poor were fed. The priest relented, Upasni forgave them, but refused to feed them. He then told Merwan Seth & Sadashiv to go south to Jagannath Puri ( was a city on the eastern coast ), while he returned to Sakori. They stayed at a rest house in a temple. They bathed in the sea & then took the train west to Kharagpur, the next day. They stayed with Upasni's devotees & then onto Nagpur. When they  arrived he made Sadashiv to swear that he'd take flowers & fruit & give them to Tajuddin Baba. But everytime, he would arrive, he'd learn that he just left, he repeated this for 3 days on a 18 Kms trip,  finally met him. Taj revealed that he was with Merwan Seth every time. They then left by train to see Upasni at Sakori and onto Poona after a month's journey.

               After a few days in Poona, Upasni called Merwan Seth, Sadashiv to Sakori & then onto Nasik. The 3 then walked the 4 miles  from Nasik to a Hindu temple in the jungle called ' Mahadev ' temple. The next day, Upasni took them to the village of Gawalwadi, where they climbed the mountain of Bhorgad. This is where Upasni spent a whole year in a cave repeating God's name. They stayed  the night in the cave & the next day, they walked back to Nasik & then departed for Sakori. When they arrived- Upasni stayed & Merwan Seth & Sadashiv went back to Poona.

 

          1920

 

Merwan Seth spent most of the year in seclusion. Later in the year, Merwan Seth & Sayyed went to the cave that Upasni Maharaj used at Gawalwadi. Merwan Seth stayed in the cave for 40 days,Sayyed would bring milk daily for Merwan Seth as he was also fasting, from the village. When they returned to Nasik, Merwan Seth stayed at Sayyed's home. In the presence of the other men staying with them,  Sayyed proposed a new name - all agreed on Meher Baba.

                  Soon after they returned to Poona, everyone called him by his new name - Meher Baba.

 

          1921

 

              Earlier in the year Meher Baba met two Irani sisters Freiny Driver & Daulat Irani - she had two daughters -   Mehera & Freiny.

                  In Ahmednager, Gulmai & her husband Kaikhushru, built a new house which was named "Sarosh  Manzil", they invited Upasni Maharaj to cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony. Their sons- Rustom & Adi drove to Sakori in the family automobile, Upasni happily came, but he invited Meher Baba who came with Gustadji the next day from Poona. This was Meher Baba's 1st visit to Ahmednagar.

                 Upasni & Meher Baba stayed for 7 days as honoured guest. Adi became seriously ill during this time, he was nursed back to good health by the 2 masters. Just as Upasni was to be driven back to Sakori, he made a pronouncement to all present " When I provide Meher Baba with the engine, your prophet Zarathustra will manifest ! " Meher Baba & Gustadji both departed for Poona.

                        July - a prohibition movement started in India & protests against liqour & toddy shops arose. 

               Meher Baba closed the toddy shop in Kasba Peth and left Poona due to the prohibition of alcohol and went to stay with Upasni Maharaj in Sakori. He returned 6 months later to Poona. Meher Baba regained his normal consciousness of the world - this process had taken 8 - 9 years.

 

           1922

 

In January, Merwan left Sakori as a  fully Perfect Master. As he rode away in a tonga to the train station, his  Master - Upasni Maharaj saluted him as Adi-Shakti --- the Avatar. 

                    Merwan took the train to Bombay and went to Munshi Rahim's house on Charni Road. Munshi helped him with his first bath in 6 months. He was almost 28 years old.
