If Guruji wants any work done, He likes it done yesterday… Bau likes it done the day before. That’s how he came to the planet 40 years ago, a month before he was due 🙂 His sense of urgency coupled with a style of having-all-the-time-in-the-world and topped (rather cherry whipped creamed) with a magnificent sense […]
