I am narrating this part of my life and how my Shraddha and Saburi on Shirdi Sai Baba stayed firm. I have experience many Sai miracles, some of them you do not even noticed, but Baba has His hand in everything and is always watching upon His devotee.
Hi Everyone, I would like to share how Sai helped me in every way and still is. I got my first IT job. All was well till I started having issues with my Team leader. I am a person has always worked hard. I was always eager to learn. One day I was escalating an incident, I accidentally called the second level instead of the first. I apologies to that person and re-escalated the incident to the proper channel. My team leader looked at me and said why you called the wrong person. I said it was a mistake and I have rectified the situation (all is good now).
Next day, he had a meeting and said we need to discuss. In the meeting he mentioned that I am doing very well (one week before he cancelled my contract). On Diwali day, I finished work at 11 pm. My team leader came up to me and said that he will need to review my performance. Astonishingly I asked why! He said my performance is not good. I re-iterate what he said last week. Not knowing what is going to happen to me in the coming week, my mind was started wondering. I just bought a new car (loan and rental to pay). All of the sudden, I realised that if my team leader does something like cancelling my contract, I should have a backup plan.
SAI, I always had faith in Him. On that Diwali day, after finishing work at 11 pm, I thought to myself why not to go to Baba and ask why bad things are happening to me. I went there. Temple was closed. I could see Baba in there from the window. I prayed and then went home. I arrived home and I parked the car on the street. I had a pizza box and can of Pepsi in my hand. That was for my dinner at work. But I could not swallow due to all these tensions!! When I got out of the car, I saw an old man sleeping in a corner, was very cold. I thought to myself why not give him the pizza & Pepsi. He needs this more that I do. So this is what I did. I left the pizza box and drink for him and went home, thinking possibly next week may be the last week at work.
Eventually, week after Diwali, was my last week at work. I did not get to know this until Friday, when they called me in the meeting room and said we are cancelling your contract and you will get 1 week of salary. I was about to burst into tears. I left work without saying goodbye to anyone. I have always worked hard and devoted myself to this work. I went home, and told my girlfriend how all this unfolded. She said to have faith in Baba and everything will be alright.
The very next day, I got a job interview and went good by Sai's Grace. They asked me if I could provide references from my previous job. I positively said okay, I knew some mates from my previous job that can assist. Unfortunately, my mates did not help. I called them numerous times, left voice mail and no one responded. In the silent I thought of Baba, then I got a call from a friend-"shafiq" and he was shocked to hear that I was sacked. He said do not worry, he will give you reference.
After 1 week at home, I had lots of interviews, it was like the employers were presenting themselves. I had difficulty to choose the job. Finally I chose to work for Boeing airlines as an IT support and luckily reference check went good. 2 weeks after, I got a call for a permanent job and with a good company. I thanked Baba wholeheartedly for helping me. I am still working in this company, got promotions (Sai Kripa) and one day I saw the HR person that sacked me, she was coming with my present manager and my manager said this is me. He has been with us for long now and we appreciate his work.
I quizzed my manager about the HR person; he said she just joined here. Further down the Track, I saw the Team leader in the Car park basement one morning, when I parked the car and was going to work. He was struggling to pay for the Car park (does not know how to operate the ticket machine). I was in the queue and did not realise it was him at that moment. I politely asked can I help you. He turns and was shocked to see me. I helped him and he asked me what am I doing here? I smilingly answered that I work in this building now. Sai does not let anyone down. He keeps all His promise
