Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
I was called in at 1 p.m. by Bala, because of severe pain in the left arm. She was crying, squeezing her arm. It is a case of neuralgia... I thought, “What will the Force do, after all? she will have to suffer...” and just read what happened! I applied Liniment chloroform locally and gave a pill of aspirin. In about 15 minutes she fell asleep – had beautiful sleep till 3 p.m., when someone woke her up; and lo! the pain had gone! What do you think?
Refuse to think – lost the habit.
Do you know what my weight is? Only 51 kg – 112 Ibs – 8 st. I was staggered to find it so low, wondered how I was walking about!
Quite a respectable weight. I used in the nineteenth century to walk about with less than 100 – found no difficulty.
Here is a letter from Mulshankar in answer to my question enumerating the troubles of his leg. What do you say to it as a doctor and especially to the behaviour of the two bones? Kindly return the document along with your remarks.
