Anonymous Devotee from USA says:
Dear Hetal Ji, I would like to thank you on behalf of all the Sai devotees for the great work you are doing. Here is my second post. I came to United States of America in the year 2011 for my Master’s. Lot of good things happened before coming and even after coming. I am done with my Master’s and was looking for a job her in USA. At that point of time, I came to my sister’s place, who lives in USA as well. My parents started looking for a groom for her. We used to think a lot about the person, who is going to enter in to her life. Even I felt little scared. She left everything to Baba.
I got my job in three months after my graduation and I moved to another place. As this is my first job, I was little panicked. I looked for accommodation in that place and found one apartment, but it was almost two hours drive from my office and there was little issue regarding the room and roommate. So, all of sudden we should look for another room in the same place. We got to know this in the midnight and I was having my flight to that place early in the morning. My sister felt very tensed regarding my accommodation in that place. Somehow we were able to manage for one day with temporary accommodation as we got to know that my sister’s friend’s friend is living in the same place.
On the same day, I started looking for roommates in a local website and I found one apartment, which is open for accommodating one female and this was posted on the same day. I called up her and spoke everything clearly and was all set to move to that apartment. After entering in to the apartment within few minutes, I saw Saibaba’s idol and immediately I asked my roommate if she is a devotee of Saibaba. She told no and that idol was her old roommate’s one. But, after seeing Baba in that room, I felt His presence. After few days, suddenly while I was browsing internet, I got an idea to search if there are any Saibaba temple nearby. Finally, to my surprise, I found Saibaba temple nearby. It’s just six miles away from the place where I am staying and the office is also very close to my apartment. I used to take a cab every Friday. Though it’s little expensive, I thought I can effort it. I used to go every Thursday and use to attend Aarti.
In the same month, my sister’s wedding got fixed with a person, who lives here. They met and decided to marry and their wedding date got fixed. Initially they thought the wedding will be on Wednesday and all of sudden within few hour’s the wedding date was fixed and to our surprise it’s on Thursday. I and my sister felt very happy for this. We thought this was her wedding gift from Baba and yes we felt His presence. I was little worried whether my director and manager approves leave as It was just a month after my joining. One Thursday, I went to my director and asked for time off for three weeks to visit India for my sister’s wedding and they approved my leave.
We did shopping and everyone was excited. In the mean while my brother-in-law got his H1 stamping done and my parents also got visa for USA. We planned for a three weeks trip to India and me and my sister had an idea of keeping Saibaba’s Bhajan in our house before wedding. But I though it will be little burden for our parents at this time. Once while we are talking to our parents on phone, they told that they are having an idea of keeping Baba’s Bhajan in our house the day before wedding. We felt very happy and said yes.
I and my sister thought of visiting Shirdi in this three weeks trip. The day we landed in India, we went to Shirdi with my cousin. The trip to Shirdi was really awesome. After coming from Shirdi, we went to our place and met my parents. The wedding was after ten days of engagement. We felt little tensed as the time is very less, but because of Baba’s grace both the engagement and wedding went well. My brother-in-law was very sweet person. All of us were very happy.
I am back to USA and also back to work. After one month, due to company’s budget issue, the entire team got released from the project. I felt bad, but I was little happy that at least I had my job for one month after coming from India. It’s almost a month I am done with my job. I am waiting for a job, so that I can support my parent’s financially as they are also in need of money right now after my sister’s marriage. Hoping for the best and rest is left to Baba. He’ll definitely look over. Thanks to You Baba for staying in our lives.
