Today Baba woke me up at 4 in the morning and asked me to pick only the red bundles. On our way to the stand, I asked him why we were putting up the shop so early today and that too with so many red roses. ‘’Today is Rose Day’’, said Baba. I enquired what it was. He said, “ it is our Diwali beta, the time of the year when Goddess Laksmi is the most generous.”
