06.29.13_16.Carp“As he’d done when we’d walked the streets of New York City, he instructed me how to walk the paths of Raman Reti—how to deal with the monkeys. First, you carry a stick with you. We grew up in kind of tough neighborhoods. He sometimes said that the choice for him of which way to walk home was whether to get beat up by this gang or by that gang. So, he knew how to deal with the streets and taught me that. And the way to deal with the monkeys was to just glance at them once to let them know that you know that they are there. Then you go on your tramadol way. So, he had a walking stick with a few designs on it that was a little smaller on the bottom than the top. One morning, there were some Vraja-vasi boys playing with a small ball, and we grew up playing stickball, so he reversed his cane and had the boys throw the ball to him  like he was lining up at the plate, playing stickball in the dust of Vrindavan. It made a powerful connection for me.” — Kalachandji das
