That is why I have to feed them and that I throw the flour to them. She again asked Baba whether there is "Jari" "Mari" (Durdevatha). Baba replied there exists "Durdevatha but they won't do anything harm to us". For that she told Baba that some were dying on account of Durdevatha for which Baba told that Durdevatha was scolding me to allow her to enter the village. At that time, I request the Almighty and gave her the allotted persons to her. Again she asked Baba, "whether there are evil sprits" Baba told that there are evil spirits and that they won't do any harm to us". She told when she was in Naigaom in Bombay a figure of an evil spirit used to come from the well side ' and go to the room in the upstairs and disappear. Baba told her that he knows him and he was the house owner of her house and he became an evil spirit and further told her that he used to disappear only in the room where she delivered". She told Baba as to how he knew all these facts"? Baba replied that He knows her from her childhood and further told her you have forgotten me. I will call off my children even if they were one thousand miles away. My care will always be alike towards all. All men good, bad & rowdies are coming to Me I have to look for all of them.
During these conversation, she felt tired in grinding the wheat flour and asked Laxmibai to continue grinding work. All the three finished the grinding work and the Bombay lady knew well about evil spirits.
