Nirmala was Kalemama’s daughter-in-law and was married to Babu or Shreedhar Kale. Babu alongwith Murli was one of the students in Hazrat Babajan School started by Meher Baba in 1927. Later he became a Teacher in his sisters school Sanjeevan Vidhyalaya, Panchgani near Pune (India). At Panchgani he met Nirmala and they married but the tie did not last longer. Nirmala got a job as Metron of Central Jail Jabalpur and moved out while Shreedhar remained in Panchgani scool till last. Nirmala requested Baba to release Murli from ashram life and after New Life Baba issued New Life Circular no 27, releasing Murli Kale who thus came to Jabalpur to practice Homeopathy. Murli later married and settled at Jabalpur until 1977 when he passed away on 6th Feb.
Nirmala was a poetess and wrote many songs to Baba which Baba apreciated. Once Baba remembered her very much and asked Mandali to write to her conveying his blessings. When Nirmala passed away in 1968 Meher Baba sent a Telegram that she now rests in Him.
