Dhananjaya : After we left George Harrison's estate, we went to Mr. Prajapati's house. Prabhupada was supposed to take some milk and maybe some halava and puri there and then go back to Bury Place. When we got to Mr. Prajapati's house, many devotees were already there. Mr. Prajapati and his wife were very expert in serving prasadam. He asked Srila Prabhupada, "What would you like?" Prabhupada said, "A little milk." Mr. Prajapati said, "Would you like something with the milk?" Prabhupada said, "Have you prepared something?" He said, "Yes, subji, puri, and halava." Prabhupada said, "All right." Prabhupada liked to take halava and puris with his milk in the U.K. As Prabhupada was being served, they brought in other preparations as well. Prabhupada said, "What is this? This looks nice." He took a little bit and then someone else came with something else. Then someone else came with something else. All of a sudden there were fifteen or twenty different preparations in front of Prabhupada. Prabhupada said, "Oh! You have tricked me." Mr. Prajapati said, "Yes! What could we do? We felt so honored that you were coming to our house that we cooked a huge feast." Prabhupada said, "But, what about everyone else here?" Mr. Prajapati said, "We have cooked enough for everybody." Prabhupada said: "All right. Everybody else should eat too." At 11:00 at night we had a massive feast. The next morning we had to be up at 4:00 a.m. because Prabhupada wanted to have darshan of Radha-London Ishvara. After staying up late and eating so much it was difficult for us to get up.
