Information

(? 08.1992), sadhak. Lived in Ashram. Was present at meditation on the Day of Siddhi. Dyuman ("The Luminous one") was the name given by Sri Aurobindo. He came to live at the Ashram on 5.5.1927. He cleaned the carpet of Mother's room every morning when Mother was in the bathroom. Then he cleaned the staircase. He served breakfast, lunch and dinner to Mother. He was the supplier of food for the Ashramites and in charge of the Dining Room. He went to the farms to look after the work there. He was often seen with a straw hat on his head on his way to the farms.

Dyumanbhai had an anecdote to say about Mother and organic farming. Mother once said to him when he was serving soup to her, "I hope you are not giving me poison in it." Mother meant the chemical fertilizers that went into growing the vegetables for the soup. Dyuman, then and there, decided to grow vegetables himself by the organic process for Mother's soup.
