At the house of the Kasera brothers, Pran Nath and Priya Nath could be seen running about wildly in theirs shoes on the white mattresses that were strewn on the floor. The Kasera brothers conducted their business while sitting on these mattresses. Ganni Lal Kasera found himself getting peeved, and said to the boys with sarcasm: “Are Saahab! Are Baabu Saahab! Gaddon par boot mat laao! O Sahib! O Sahib Gentlemen! Don’t bring your boots on the mattresses!”
The boys narrated these sarcastic remarks of Ganni Lal to Shri Nathji, who was very concerned about them. He saw the beginning of impertinence, howsoever small, in these words addressed to the children. They showed an irreverence, which could worsen if not checked.
Shri Nathji had often quoted the words of Shri Babaji Maharaj:
“Chhoti se chhoti buraayi barri se barri buraayi ki ijaad hoti hai!”
“Even the smallest of faults is the foundation of the greatest of evils!”
However Shri Nathji was there to rectify the faults of his devotees and they came back to the right path very quickly.
Shri Nathji had also said: “Babaji used to say that a man should be judged by the smallest of his actions and not by the big assertions he made in life.”
Ganni Lal was the most business-minded of all the Kasera brothers, but had a devotion in Shri Nathji to equal that of his brothers.
In one of his letters to Shri Nathji he had been very concerned about the illness of Mateshwari in the cold weather at Mussoorie and had written:
“Of what use our living in the world if we can be of no use to you! Alas, would that we had the money to buy a bungalow for you in the plains so that you would not have to live in the cold weather of Mussoorie. The illness of Mateshwari has wrenched my heart. I find myself so helpless, so useless.”
Albeit Shri Nathji’s stay at the Kasera brothers’ house at Hathras soon came to an end.
As Shri Nathji often said:
“Ek din aataa hai ke sab ek dream ho jaataa hai! A day comes when everything becomes a dream!”
