Highlights of this post:
When she was around 22 months old, my parents have come from India to see all these activities of her and spend some time with her, celebrate festivals with us. Two days before Dussehra my daughter suddenly coughed all night and next day she had fever but no cough. On Dussehra (24th Oct) early morning around 3:00 am she woke us up. We observed that she was breathing very fast as high as 80 times per minute approximately. So we rushed to emergency and she was given oxygen supply through canal as she was breathing really fast. Then she was shifted to intensive care unit, as she needed oxygen supply. On 25th and 26th all her tests were negative so doctors couldn't understand what was happening with her. On 26th i.e. Thursday my husband visited Sai Baba Temple and prayed for her wellness. Priest gave him Baba Vibhuti and asked to mix in liquids and offer her. We did the same and next morning reports showed that she was diagnosed with viral pneumonia. Then next day they said it could be bacterial as well, so they started with antibiotics.
On Saturday night, she was complaining about some pain on her right side and was not willing to sleep on her back, and instead was sleeping on her left. When they took x-ray on Sunday morning it was shown that her right lung collapsed. So, they needed to insert a tube into her chest to remove the air around the lungs and to bring the lung back to its shape. Then they said she needs to be sedated and put onto the ventilator. But there is a risk to this, which is due to the pressure from ventilator there is a chance for the left lung as well to get collapsed. All these are life risky problems. By Baba's grace 2 chest tubes were inserted on time. It was a very tough day watching her going through all these while we were expecting that she would be fine and we would be home in a day or two. Luckily we have very good friends who have been with us through all these and have taken care of us without hesitating even for a second and prayed for her wellness whole heartedly. She looked like she was getting better. Then the chest tubes got clogged so the doctors removed them and placed a new tube.
On Wednesday evening few friends visited to see her. While talking to them I realized that her lips, palms and feet were turning blue. I started to panic but the nurse said these things do happen. I walked out to meet few other friends and cried for some time and then when I came back to her room I was shocked to see that she was going through very tough time. She was struggling to breathe and her vitals were all very low and doctor and nurses trying very hard by providing oxygen supply through a hand pump. There was a second when it looked like they missed her pulse. After trying for 2hrs they said they need to put her back on ventilator as they can't go on providing oxygen with hand pump. And they weren't sure if she would co-operate with the ventilator. They asked us to spend 2 minutes with her. It was extremely hard for us to see and listen to all these. Then they kept her back on ventilator and were observing her. They asked if we have any religious person like priest who can come to the hospital and pray for us, and then we said no. I was holding Sai Satcharitra close to my heart and was praying Baba please save my daughter. My husband was holding Bible asking please save her. My friends with us and at other places, my brother were all praying for her. After sometime her vitals looked ok. We started to feel better.
Later, they took an ultrasound scan and said that there are fluids developing around her heart and if they increase she needs a surgery and they do not have that facilities available there. Hence we need to shift to another hospital as they have the paediatric cardiologist and equipment there. But as she was on oscillating ventilator she needs to be shifted on hand pump oxygen supply in helicopter and it is very risky since she is already tired she might not co-operate until she reaches and settles at the other hospital, the whole process might take an hour. But staying back in the same hospital was also equally risky, hence doctor said it was our choice to stay back or shift. It was the extremely tough situation for us. All our friends, relatives said we should shift but we were scared to take any decision. Then one of my friend opened random page from Bible to know the answer for this situation and when she opened the answer was something like "My men would come to you and take everything on their shoulder and they will breathe for you". Then with confidence we said we will shift. Doctor and 2 nurses arrived and took her to the new hospital. By Baba's grace she reached there safely and each day she was getting better and this miracle happened on Thursday early morning.
Another miracle was that evening when we went to temple one of our friends were performing Pooja for my daughter so they told the priest about us and he said he would come and see her. Within less than 24hrs of we saying that we do not have religious person to come and pray for us, Priest himself said that he would come and see her at the hospital. Next day Priest has come to hospital to see her, blessed her and prayed for her. He also suggested us few rituals to perform for her wellness. After shifting to the new hospital, my daughter was getting better each day, though with few ups and downs in between. All my husband's colleagues, friends, my brother, everyone came to see her and prayed for her. Next Thursday due to her progress they removed the ventilator, also started reducing sedation and after 2 days they removed her chest tube as well. Though some air developed around her lungs again, they said it's quite small and there is always a possibility of this happening due to the pressure of removing the tube. Then next day she started eating food, recognizing us, playing and talking and was shifted to the general floor. On Thursday she got discharged. That evening we went to temple to get Baba's blessings. We could get through all these situations with Baba's grace, blessings, and help and with support of His men who are in the form of Doctors, Nurses, Priest, Parents, Friends, Relatives and Well-wishers. Om Sai Ram.
Computer Management in 2011 at Nashik. I don’t have any experience, i mean i did not have any computer knowledge at that time, because i am from Marathi Medium. I had just completed my degree in B.A (English). At the very beginning of college day, i never thought that the field i have chosen is wrong. Due to Sai Baba’s grace, i managed it and I got 59.45% marks in academics. I got some awards in sports also. Next Year, i became a Class Representative. The main thing i want to tell you, i had never joined any extra class during academic year. But i had to join project class because one of my best teacher strongly recommended me to join project class to get maximum marks for first class or to get good marks. But the teacher got transferred in another college.
In first Year, i got special award from this teacher for good performance in study progress. When i got the surprise gift from teacher, i was so humble and i had tears in my eyes due to my efforts. I used to sit in library till 8 pm. Initially, i don’t have any vehicle to go home. I used to go home by walking. Then after some months, i got a bicycle. Every member of the college thought good about me, because i was good, dedicated student regarding my career. Right from library to student, teacher to peon, everyone knew that i am talented & my behaviour is good. Apart from this, one thing is that Great Sai Baba Helped me. In third semester, i failed in two subjects. Not just me but other students from my class also failed due to university mistake in Paper Checking. We fill up revaluation & rechecking form. The fee was very high, near about Rs-840 to Rs-900. We also had to fill up the Exam form for those subjects. If the result would come positive, then it’s fine, but if not, then it would be very difficult for us to get a job because of reappear in two subjects.
Finally, few days were remaining for the exams of 4th Semester & two subjects of third Semester with 200 marks of project. It was very difficult to manage. I used to cry due to injustice with me. I had written good paper but how & why it happened. Everyone was shocked that i failed in two subjects. I just kept my burden on My Great Sai Baba, please do anything for me. I just want first class Marks. The main thing which i forget to tell you, i used to visit Sai Temple before going to college every day in morning & evening also. Sometimes i used to be there for Aarti of Sai Baba. The temple was near to my college campus. I used to listen Aarti with full of devotion. I had a laptop, on which there was Sai Image (Still the image of Sai is on desktop) on my desktop. I pray God to solve my problem. My room partner used to say me that you are very great Sai Baba devotee, your problem will be solved definitely. They always used to take inspirational things from me because some of them were UPSC & MPSC Student. When i took admission in 2011, i started to do fast on every Thursday.
Finally, my result came on 27 July. My friend told me on Facebook via chat that result is declared by university on net. Download PDF & check it out. I downloaded it and i saw that i passed in first class. I had no bound of joy. I said to Baba that You really saved my life & fulfilled my wish. I said to Baba, to be with me & my family and bless us always forever in crisis. That time, i was in Mumbai for 1 month course of website. There was also a Sai Baba temple. I used to take Darshan & blessing from Baba. My friend also just took my seat number & checked. He instantly told me that congratulations, you have passed with first class (Aggregate 61.27 %). But He was failed. I said don’t worry be prepared for next exam. He was also a devotee of Shri Sai Baba. Then i informed to my family, i have passed with first class marks, so not to worry. Baba Saved me.
I want to tell those who are reading this post just keep faith on Shirdi Sai Baba & keep trying your best. Do not give up. Just be free & feel that great Sai Baba is always with you, where you go. Baba never wants His devotees to fall. Just surrender yourself to Sai Baba Lotus Feet & never doubt on Him. If you have ever visited Shirdi then definitely take Udi (Vibhuti). Keep Udi with you. It will protect you in health related problem. Shirdi Sai Baba protects their all devotee like Mother & always loves His children. *Mere Sai Nath Sabke Sath*, *Sabka Malik Ek *, *Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Parabrahma Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.* If anyone of you wants Shri Sai Satcharitra (In English or In Hindi) then message me on this mail Id.
wonderful tonic which all the Baba devotees drink with eternal bliss every day. Baba is working in your form, i am sure of it. I have been a devotee of Baba from 2010 actively, though my dad had been to Shirdi in 2000 and had got Sai Satcharitra. But then it took 10 years for me to come close to Baba. It might be Baba’s wish to call me when He feels as i am eagerly waiting for His call to Shirdi. I feel extremely blessed that at least now I got the grace of Baba without which I can’t imagine my life any further. Few experiences I would like to share it to all Bhaktas and mainly as a Samarpanam at the Lotus Feet Of my Saviour Baba.
It was in 2010 that I got my first job when Baba had blessed me with His grace when I had lost all hope in my life as I had been a fresher for one and half years post my engineering. I had attended nearly 20 interviews but finally all failed. I happened to see the Baba answers site at this time asking Baba if at all I would be able to work in my life as one must get job immediately as a fresher or else there is no chance of getting a job for a fresher after 1 year as the next batch would come in. Baba gave me the answer that "You will gain success through one woman". That came true to each word as that woman was my Amma and it was she who told me to give a last try for a job where there were candidates of nearly 3000 as students of 3 batches were called 2008, 2009, 2010. I was hopeless as how am I to get out of this 3000. Nearly 5 rounds were conducted and I was told I will be called in a week if selected. I received no calls for nearly a month. I had lost all hope and one fine day I received a call from HR stating I could join on coming week. Today if I am a Software Engineer that is just because of my Baba.
Second experience that I wish to place before Baba is as follows. My mother is diabetic from four five years and no proper doctor could suggest a solution to this and as a result her sugar levels were uncontrolled always. 3 months before, we happened to test her sugar levels which resulted in reading of 290 after food when it was to be within 140. Doctor had told the level has to come down as Diabetes is a silent killer and it could cause various other problems unexpectedly. Doctor suggested her balanced diet with medicines as usual telling us to come after 3 months with results of HB A1c that will show the average reading of 3 months along with individual readings. I started praying to Baba that I somehow need the sugar levels to be normal as I love my Amma so much to core. I started giving Udi mixed in water to Amma and I too started having it telling Baba that please accept it as if my Amma is having it for her. Baba had replied "You will get Success". I had promised Baba that I would read the 11th chapter of Sai Satcharitra 11 times before I take my Amma for all the test. Likewise I surrendered reading Sai Satcharitra the night before the test. The next day we had it tested and found all the readings to be exactly Normal range readings because of Baba’s blessings. Before food reading is 109 and post food reading is 140. Everyone in family were so happiest and surprised to see the report. I was so speechless that I do not know how to thank Baba for all the support He had been showering on me.
Third experience I would like to tell you all is that recently I had chance to experience another miracle in my life. I go to office in AC bus (MTC) and the AC in the bus happened to stop working as it was overcrowded. So the driver announced that the bus would stop at one stop before my stop. I just spoke to Baba in my mind that it would be good if it would stop at my stop as its just one stop short of it. I kept praying then suddenly driver told that he would stop at my stop as he was not able to take a right turn to take it to the garage. I was so happiest as Baba had proved as usual that He is there with us to fulfil all our wishes be it how small or big. And also my stop is not the last stop of the bus as it had more ten stops to go but because of Baba I was blessed to get down at my stop. Everything is possible only because of Baba and we just need to make Baba our friend and have Full, Complete Faith with Patience for all our problems and wishes. Baba’s miracles are unfathomable and May Baba shower His blessings to all. Boliye Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Jai Sai Deva! Jai Sai Deva! Jai Sai Deva.
During my adolescence age, I had problem with my periods. It was very much irregular and it was because of my family history and it was commonly called as PCOD. I think where many women suffer out of same these days. I was worried because whenever I had visited a doctor they used to frighten me that there may be chances of infertility if it’s not corrected and regularized. Somehow due to Sai's grace, I was introduced to a yoga master a year and a half before marriage. He taught many Asana to correct my problem and like a lucky charm it started working and it got regularized. I am a girl who is very fond of kids and love playing with kids. My marriage also got settled luckily after that by Sai' grace. He sought a very nice person as my life partner and coincidently my marriage was held on Thursday for which I felt like being blessed by Holy Sai. After my marriage I happened to move to my in laws house. After a month, I skipped my date and I got anxious about my problem reoccurring and also it’s an old fashioned tale where mother in laws will be concerned about our date.
I was insisted to do a pregnancy kit test by my In-laws and I was not willing to share my problem with them. The test gave negative results even after 45 days, they were wondering and they suspected there was some problem with my health. I felt very dejected and use to cry in front of Sai Ram day and night. I couldn't control my emotions, and used to cry to Sai asking for a kid whenever I see a baby on road or park thinking of my problem. But Sai never leaves His kid abandoned, suddenly one of my teammates gave me suggestion to check with a Gynaecologist for treatment of PCOD and she took me to a Gynaecologist. I told the doctor about my condition, but the doctor didn't want me to go for treatment first. She asked me to do a clinical test that day which was my 46 or 47th day. To all of our (me and my friend) surprises the result was (weakly positive), which means it will be positive in another week. I can't be more thankful to Sai in all my births for whatever He has done and given to me, and within 10 months I was blessed with a cute boy baby and I always get reminded of this Leela of Sai and share my experience of Sai with friends who wants to be blessed with a baby. So I really ask devotees to leave your burden in Feet of Sai with full patience and belief for He is there to take care of His daughter/son.
divorce. When i got the news of my sister, i suddenly took Sai Baba’s name and i really don’t know how, Sai Baba entered in my life and showed me the path. Baba came in my dreams and He gave me a message that He will save my sister's marriage. From that day onwards i started believing in Sai Baba.
I prayed, cried and begged for my sister’s marriage life. It was my sister’s mistake. She used to chat on whatsapp late night, which her husband noticed. He said that he will give her divorce and put our family in shame. I told my sister to believe in Sai Baba. I asked Sai Baba to save my sister’s marriage and i will bring her to Shirdi. I had never visited Shirdi, but i went to Shirdi with my mother, father and my children. It was not possible to take my sister with us. Then suddenly Sai Baba gave me a thought to carry my sister’s and her husband’s photo. I took the photo, kept it on Baba's Samadhi and prayed to Baba to bless this couple. Still nothing happened. My sister’s life turned to worse and worse. I use to read Sai Satcharitra. One day, i read Sai Baba's answer that evil spirit has to be removed. Then i send my mother to one Fakir and he did something. Side by side, i did my Nine Guruvar Vrat, which gave me immense result. My sister’s husband was not talking to her. Suddenly he started talking with her. Now by the grace of Sai Baba, both wife and husband are talking. I am very grateful to Sai Baba for coming in my life, showing me the right path.
soul mate before marriage, my dream came true only because of my Love (Baba) grace. I always follow Baba’s instincts. I heartily thank Baba for giving me a good family & moreover giving me a wonderful opportunity to share sweet experiences about my Sai Papa. I love You Baba with no limits.
