Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Dear Hetal ji, I am Chandana, a physician. I am currently residing in the USA. I have been reading these experiences of devotees for the past few months and wanted to post my experience if my problem was solved. Kindly don’t reveal my identity to anyone. I also need solution to a problem which has remained unsolved for the past 3 and half years. Thank you for all the work. We need such blogs and groups to share our thoughts.
As a PU college student, I had visited Sai Baba temple in the late 90s, but not until I came to the USA. Did I become an ardent devotee of Lord Sai? I always aspired to be a physician and with all the hurdles, God showed me the path to reach where I am. I would like to share a wonderful experience, which I had not too long ago and had promised to share it with all of you if I found a solution to this problem.
I was doing my residency and was on a dependent visa and my husband was doing his fellowship. My husband wanted to do a fellowship before he started working, which meant extending his visa status and stay in the USA. Though we started the process 6 months in advance, the Indian consulate was notoriously unfriendly. We had to spend Lakhs of rupees and approached 2 people in India to get the work done by the Indian government. Meanwhile, I was on a dependent visa and was running out of time, since I would have to discontinue my job if my husband's visa issue wouldn’t resolve. People at my work place forced me to go to India to change me dependent status to independent status. I felt so helpless at this point. I kept begging Sai Baba to help me day and night, visited the Sai Baba temple almost daily. Time was running out and finally I had to leave to India to change my status otherwise both of us would be without a job in the US. Finally I booked my tickets to India.
Incidentally, during my last visit to India, I wanted to visit Shirdi as a pleasure trip. I had booked my flight tickets, but I had canceled it for various reasons. A thought came to my mind that I should visit Shirdi this time. The moment I landed, I tried to get tatkal tickets to Shirdi. My husband never believed in Sai Baba, he kept using the words Fakir/Muslim etc. So I never expressed all my feelings about Baba to him. I did mention to him that I want to visit Shirdi. It so happened that he with the help of his friend got us tickets to Shirdi just within one day. I was surprised. To our surprise, the day we booked our tickets, my husband got an email saying that his visa issue is resolved and he could start his new fellowship. I visited Shirdi and had really satisfying Darshan twice. I was very happy. I had my visa issue resolved after I got back as well. This is definitely a miracle. My husband never accepts this in front of me. But when I got back from India, I saw him lighting a lamp to Lord Sai Baba photo of mine, which I had for few years now. That’s enough, I guess, I don’t want him to frankly express his feelings like me, but in the bottom of his heart, he realized his mistakes. Thank you Baba.
Meanwhile, I got a fellowship as well. We found a decent career for all the hard work. I am really happy that Lord Sai showed me the right path at some point in my life.
That was what I intended to share with all of you.
I have been fighting with another major problem since the time I got married to my husband for the past 3 and half years. I don’t know how to solve the problem. I have a very nice husband who is very supportive and is a real gentleman. We haven’t been able to have kids until now. Physicians don’t think we have any medical conditions. I wish Baba will help me and give me a kid.
To all the devotees there, I sincerely wish Baba will help you lead the right path always and will solve your problems. Let’s continue to keep in touch through this blog in the future. If Baba grants me a kid and solves this problem of mine, I will post this experience again.
