One day, Mathura Babu, an affluent person, came to see him and suggested Swamiji to go boating with him on the river. They crossed the river and went to the locality called Kalai Ghata near Rana ghat. This locality was inhabited by very poor people. Paramhansa burst into tear as he saw the miserable condition in which these people lived. Most of them were famished and clad in rags. The sawant a devotee of Maa Kali. He started wailing in loud voice. "Mother see how your children live. Inspite of your presence, your sons and so much misery in your world."
Mathura Babu had a deep understanding of Swamiji's feelings. He came back to the city and bought food and clothes for the famished people of that locality. Paramhansa was still in tears and praying to Maa Kali. He regained his composure as Mathur Babu fed the poor and distributed clothes. Then, he raised hands to the sky and said " Mother, You are the last refuge!"
