For Christmas in 1935, Avatar Meher Baba sent this telegram to His close ones in America and Europe:
On Christmas Baba and the women mandali were at the famous Marble Rocks near Jabalpur. The diary [belonging to Mani Irani, Baba's sister] records 'After Arti & presents, we went boating at 9:00 a.m. between the Marble Rocks - v. [very] beautiful. Baba put His hands in the water and Gai [Gaimai, Eruch's mother] said, 'How long the Narbudda [Narmada River] has awaited you.'"
