Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hetalji, I sincerely appreciate you for collating all the devotee’s experiences. You are doing a wonderful job by doing so and I pray to BABA to bless you and your family with abundant of happiness and joy. Hetalji your name is always included in my prayers for SAI.
Please do not disclose my details in the blog. We are from Bangalore. We (My parents, In-laws and my sisters) are ardent devotees of SAIBABA. I strongly believe His presence in any act I perform. I have many experiences which have proved SAI BABA’s existence and would like to share two of the experiences with all the devotees of SAI BABA.
- The first one is, SAIBABA saved me from a calamity. My wedding was arranged with a person in 2009 October. I met this guy through matrimony and felt he is a decent guy. He along with his mother visited my house to see me in Bangalore. The guy looked very decent and my parents and I decided to proceed further. We got a “Yes” from their side also. My joy knew no bounds at that time. I thanked BABA for showing me such a nice educated family. We had to visit his house in Andhra to go ahead with the other talks. When I met this guy for the second time in my uncle’s house, my heart didn’t agree to him. Something inside was constantly pricking me to withdraw my Yes to him. But I could not do so as we had already informed my relatives about this proposal.
We never met in any public place as his mother pretended to be very orthodox. She said she wouldn’t like her son and so called daughter-in-law to meet till the Sapthapadhi is over. I found the behavior of the family to be much weird. We returned to Bangalore and my mother had to leave to Australia immediately to take care of my sister’s daughter. We had a gap of three months as the date was decided for October. We never met after that instance. The guy seemed to be very hesitant to talk to me over the phone as well. He pretended himself to be very busy in his profession and also orthodox. When I discussed with my parents, they consoled me stating the family is very famous and is very orthodox. Hence they asked me not to pressurize him to talk to me. I too was convinced with my parent’s response and paid attention to my work.
My mother returned from Australia in September, while my father booked the marriage hall in Bangalore and we did the other arrangements also. We had to visit Andhra again, to buy the Wedding Suite and clothes for his family members. The guy’s side asked us to give money instead, so that they can buy things according to their wish. My father agreed to that also. We met his family again, in my uncle’s house and they again pretended to be very orthodox and innocent. We had to rush back immediately to Bangalore due to the death of the CM of AP.
We were engrossed in the preparation of wedding and I took leave from the Oct 16th. On the 15th night around 12.00 AM, I received a message from my cousin, asking me to check my email immediately. When I checked my inbox, I noticed a letter from an anonymous person revealing the character about this guy and his family. I came to know that he is a Psychopath and is marrying me only for my earnings. I was shocked, while I read that email as well as not surprised as I doubted their behavior from the day one. I woke my parents up from their sleep and showed them the email. My parents were also shocked and asked me my opinion. I was wonder stuck till the next morning. I also came to know that the guy had couple of police cases booked on him by his own people due to his psychic behavior. They, in-fact, left their home town and settled elsewhere only because, the neighbors were evident about this guy and his people.
On the 16th October, I decided to withdraw the wedding as we had got the evidences about him. It was a real shock for me and my parents had to put their head down because of all this. We had a huge financial loss also during that phase. We informed the guy’s side, stating due to unavoidable circumstances we have decided to withdraw the wedding. They were accusing us because they did so much of shopping with the money we gave and he tried calling me many times after that but I didn’t entertain his calls at all. I, in-fact, did not access my phone for more than 2 months.
It was a very tough phase of my life as I was totally depressed and constantly asked BABA as to why he did this to me. Why did I meet this guy and say “Yes”? Why did he betray me like this? Why my parents underwent this torture because of me? I am a person who would not like to trouble any one. So many questions occurred in my mind and I was literally going mad. But I also need to thank the person who got out the Guy’s true color and I felt it was SAI’s miracle. My parents and my sister, who lives in Australia along with her husband, stood as the backbone and helped me to overcome my difficult situation. I truly owe them my life to all of them who have got me out from the depressed condition. I have no words to thank them. SAI came in their form and relived me from the depression.
The New Year (2010) began, while I was trying to forget my past and my parents started searching proposals as per my wish. It was through my uncle we got a proposal and my father was keen on seeing them as they were our Family friends. I was truly reluctant as the family again belonged to the same place in Andhra. But on my parent’s compulsion, he along with his parents came to my house on the April 23rd 2010. I casually met him and spoke to him. We didn’t discuss any personal ideas other than our work culture in the respective firms we work. I loved his parents as they had pleasant features and they had come up in life facing lots of hurdles. It was a Saturday when I met him. It was Monday when we had to provide our approval or disapproval for this proposal. I decided to go as per my parents wish as they liked the guy and family a lot. My father called his father and provided my approval for this proposal. Whereas, we didn’t receive any feedback from them. I was very eager to know.
On the Tuesday night, we received a call from them and my parents were unavailable. I picked the phone and his father enquired if my father is available to talk to him. I said I will convey the message to my father and ask him to call them back. My father called them and they said Yes to the proposal and wanted to perform an engagement ASAP. My Joy knew no bounds. I didn’t have words to thank BABA. I was still in a confused state as I didn’t know if this was the right decision. Though the guy worked in an MNC at Bangalore, he didn’t try to meet me also. I was thinking if he liked me or if it was by parents force he said “Yes”. So many thoughts nurtured my mind. The engagement date was fixed and it was decided for the May 19th 2010 and the Wedding was decided for the August 19th 2010.
I spoke to the guy for the second time on the engagement day and was still unsure about my decision. We exchanged our numbers after the engagement and started our communication from that day. It was the most memorable time from then on. I just can’t express my feelings. It was by SAI BABAs grace that I have got the best person as my husband and a lovely family. His parents are very jovial, and very understanding. They treat me as their daughter. I would not have got such a lovely partner and a beautiful family if SAIBABA was not beside my side. I even now think what if I would have ignored that email and proceeded further? It is a real night mare for me even to this day. This proves BABAs presence and He always protects us from calamity. I request each one to surrender yourself to SAI and pray sincerely. He will always protect His children.
- The Second experience is, SAINATH got a job for my Husband. He was working in an MNC and was having a very foolish Lady boss, who was very rude. He used to work late nights because of her (Lady Boss) unplanned attitude. He could not bear her torture and I asked him to quit his job and take a break for a month and then rejoin some other firm. Initially the break taken by him was for good. It helped him a lot by completing his course and preparing for interviews. After a month when he gained confidence he posted his resume on the search engines. He was not getting calls. We were worried if something was wrong. Later on I came to know that the market is down. He is a very sincere and hard working person. But still he was not getting calls. Finally after 2 months, he started getting calls. Though he cleared interviews, he was not getting the final call to negotiate the package.
We both were very upset. I was getting burdened financially as I had to take care of the house loan and other expenses. I suggested my husband to read Sai Satcharitra. He started reading it. By Sainath’s grace he started getting calls. We also prayed to BABA that we will do the 9 Guruvar Varth. We started doing it. On the second Guruvar Vrath, he cleared an interview and got an offer letter in hand. I distributed sweets on that day in SAI MANDIR. He was not happy with the package as it had a huge amount of variable component which made very little difference in his package. We eagerly waited for an offer from a company near SAI MANDIR, which was willing to offer him the package that he wished to, but it was getting delayed as the HR was yet to receive the approval from the higher authority.
The other company pressurized him to join on the 23rd November 2011 and he was still feeling low. I constantly encouraged him to have faith in SAI. This blog gave us the strength during the tough phase. On the 22nd November 2010, a miracle happened. We had motivated our minds for him to join the organization, who offered him and he was getting all the papers ready for the joining date. In the morning at 9.45 AM, the HR from the company close to SAI MANDIR called and asked him for a grand party. She said that they are planning to roll out the offer that evening and asked him to come and take the offer letter. We both were so happy and started jumping to joy.
It was only SAI BABA’s miracle this happened. He got the offer letter with his desired package. I distributed sweets in SAI temple that evening after he received the offer letter. We also went to TIRUPATI Climbing the hill and had good Darshan of BALAJI and PAMAVATHI DEVI. He joined work after 5 months break on the 28th November 2011 only by SAI BABA’s grace. I pray to BABA that he puts his heart, mind and soul in the current Job. SAI BABA is a Karunamaye. He will never forsake His children. I cried so much out of joy after getting positive news. The belief in BABA has increased in me and my husband after this instance. I truly thank BABA from the bottom of my heart for such a joyous gift. Please forgive me for any mistakes in spellings or language.
