Who has stolen my chaddar?

Gurukripa Dasa: January, it's quite cold in Delhi. It was middle of the day. Delhi wasn’t polluted like now; it was a beautiful city - big wide streets, no traffic, no pollution. Prabhupada was sitting on this, there was a balcony, he was getting some massage, getting some sun. So Yasodanandana... Prabhupada had two chaddars exactly, one he gave me and one exact replica, that somebody had given him. So Prabhupada left that chaddar on the roof and went to his room.

So Yasodanandana, I tricked him, I said, "Prabhupada left his chaddar up there. You can get one just like mine." So he went and took it. About ten minutes later we heard, "Who has stolen my chaddar?"

Whoa, I was laughing because I knew Prabhupada was going to do that. Yasodanandana, he folded it up, he put it on the back of his head, and crawled into Prabhupada’s room like a dog. He said, "Prabhupada I just found it on the roof," and he gave him the chaddar.
