Meher Baba Huma was a famous spiritual leader of India. He was born in Merwan Sheriar Irani on February 25, 1894. He led a normal life and grew up like any other boy, going to school and college and finishing education. The life history of Meher Baba is a very interesting and an extraordinary event. During his early years he showed no inclination towards spirituality.

At the age of 19, he once met an old Muslim woman named Hazrat Babajan and Meher Baba began his spiritual journey from then on. Meher Baba was hailed as 'Parvardigar' which means God is the ultimate support. The famous Sai Baba of Shirdi gave him the name of Parvardigar in the year 1915. His spiritual identity was revealed to him by Upasni Maharaja, another great spiritual master. He was considered by Upasni Baba to be the "Ancient One" in the year 1921.

Huma was essentially the pen name that Baba undertook to write his Ghazals and poetry. He is considered to be a great Urdu poet and his poetry spoke volumes Meher Baba Huma about spiritual knowledge and how to live life in a fruitful way. He spoke at length about conquering ones desires for vices and how the good always wins over evil. His Ghazals were published in the newspapers in Bombay and were read with much enthusiasm and admiration. He was fluent in Persian, Urdu, Hindi and Gujarati. One can find powerful influence of Sufism also in his ghazals and poetry.

He had two major accidents after which his ability to move around became very limited. His pen name Huma essentially refers to the Egyptian phoenix that burns itself after a few years only to rise again from its ashes. His condition became better in 1914 under the care and supervision of the great Guru Hazrat Babajan. He also toured the West and imparted discourses about the effects of drug abuse and how it does not lead to any kind of spiritual consciousness. After being confined to a wheelchair for almost an entire year, he finally breathed his last on January 31st 1969. Thus, was lost a great spiritual leader and a revered Urdu poet.
