The newly wed couple shifted to a rented house in Petin sahi for a while before another man named Sanjay Das alias Pupa entered in the life of Sarojini. After some months, Sarojini slowly started transforming herself into a god woman and introducing herself as Premamayi Krishna Mata.
Her first ashram came up near Shivaji Nagar area of Tulsipur shelter square with the help of Pupa and her ashram started moving from place to place a while and finally to her permanent ashram near deer park that was built on govt. land.
