Excerpt from a room conversation with Ram Jethmalani, Member of Parliament, on April 16, 1977, Bombay
Prabhupada: I was cooking in my hands. So for one man sitting I was cooking not less than for ten to fifteen men.
Tamala Krsna: What was the idea?
Prabhupada: The idea is everyone wanted some food prepared by me. They wanted my preparation. All right, do it.
Tamala Krsna: All the devotees in the early days.
Prabhupada: No, not devot... When I was doing here and there. Like Dr. Mishra's place.
Tamala Krsna: He was very fond of your cooking.
Prabhupada: He got a good cook without paying. (laughs) And I had no other alternative. I liked it.
Tamala Krsna: Was he paying for the foodstuffs?
