Highlights of this post:
oath to not visit Baba, because He didn't help her, I prayed for Baba to change her mind and will post if she visits Shiridi without any issues. Yes- He did and He did many more in our life that I want to share. We were a simple, good and small family of 4, my parents, brother and me. We had always seen our shares of struggles and then standing back up with much more power every time we struggled with the blessings of Baba.
My parents gave the best of all they could provide for me and my brother. They never showed me that I am any less than my brother being a girl. We both did our masters in US and my dad always wanted us to be independent (especially me) and stand on my own feet before we started to think of marriage. They are very broad minded and grown along with us based on how their kids life and choices changed. He always encouraged us to be independent and thought us to work hard for everything and put your 200% and remaining let Baba lead us through next phase, like every parents teach their kids. I was a girl with a birth defect but nothing was holding me, my parents never showed me I was any less and showed me I deserve much more. Me and my brother are highly educated with MS degrees and with highly paid jobs and parents are equally stable except the worry of who will look against my health defect and marry me with true love. Nothing mattered my parent’s stability, wealth, our education and nice jobs. We had run into so many challenges in getting my alliances. We prayed so much to every form of higher than human and Baba was always there behind all. Just when we gave up seeing inhumanity, but Baba never gave up and we got a distant relative alliance.
He was in India, I was In US but as my dad's dream and my mom’s prayers to Baba - I was standing on my own feet and was okay to start my life with this man that Baba showed me at last moment. Parents threw a huge wedding and we came to US. Thank You so much Baba for the blessing when we were end of the ledge and gave me a company for life as my parents won't be with me always. All was pretty and fancy till we both came to US and there isn't a day till today I am tortured for money. My husband family is from farming family and ours too but my dad was first generation government job holder from my paternal family side. We are stable but I have my self respect to know that I should not give and pay to a man money who demands 24/7. Baba stood with me all through and I prayed Him asking, please get him job so he will learn how to live, love and save family. Again Baba has given what I asked, hoping things will change, but he doesn't attest me and my family as humans because we didn't give money when demanded. I am very strong and firm girl and my parents are my everything and are with me all through and being strong for me.
Seeing my struggle, my brother with great difficulty agreed to marry with lot of prayers to Baba all through, asking Baba- please guide my brother as not all life's will be same. By now, my brother became Nasthik (Non believer of God) seeing my horrifying stories. My brother agreed with a condition of not talking any penny from girl’s family, all he cared was for girl being educated and independent. Within no time, Baba You gave that perfect match of his request. We all were happy. My parents did this wedding as through it's their second daughter’s wedding. That's how we welcomed our sister in law as their own daughter. To our surprise that we never imagined my brother faced same family problems after marriage. She doesn't attest my mom, dad and never cooked a single Meal for my brother. My brother gave everything. First year of marriage, she fought to not visit Baba as she had a grudge against Baba for not fulfilling her wishes. We were at shock listing to someone with grudge on Baba. She presented every single excuse to not join Shiridi and thrown every fist in spite of we giving everything. Finally my parents and brother went to Shiridi to compete their promise. I am not saying because it's my part of story. I know what it feels when there is no support of husband or family. My brother took my life as example and wanted to give another girl a beautiful life, love and respect her. That's the greatest respect he found for women.
Once he found her, he started believing in God and actually married her in Tirupathi and huge reception exactly like mine parents did for their son and daughter in law. 2nd day of marriage, we saw our worst night mare when she yelled at my mom and treated like shit. Mom cried all through but sucked up thinking my brother will be hurt. Months passed and brother saw her true colours and was under much more pain than me as he gave everything for her and realized his trust is broken. Again we pushed through as Baba was there and helping us through. This year they faced same struggle when we planned for Shiridi. She fought and fought but my brother didn't let her win this time and took her and all family to Shiridi. Hearing the fights, I was so scared, Baba please get her to You and I will write this. He won against her and made me win to my sincere prayers. We are still suffering but Baba is there, He will take care of us. And also not to forget my brother was close to death 14 years ago, but Baba gave him life as we just visited Baba. There are so many through our life where we saw miracles. Biggest was You giving life to him, my mom’s prays every time saying You gave him second life. Baba so please help us through our sufferings. He did and He will.
I always chant Sai Baba Name. "Om Sai Ram" This is the word, i was always chanting in my mind and soul. I always talk to Sai Baba in every step of my life. Without Sai Baba i am nowhere. I love Sai Baba. I pray Him in every minute. Sai Baba is with me. One more thing, i chant "Sarve Jana Sukhino Bhavantu", because if everybody is happy, then i will be happy. I don't want to hurt anybody. But i don’t know why, due to my behaviour everybody get hurt. I don’t why it happens. During my pregnancy, i had lot of complications (Health problems and family problems) each and every day was hard for me. But i dared to live only because of Sai Baba. Only hope was, Sai Baba will be with me, will take care of me. Om Sai Ram. At midnight my water broke out and blood was showing. We were all tensed. Luckily my husband was there at home, so he immediately took me to the hospital. After 12 hours of struggle, a sweet cute baby was born. Thank You Sai Baba for Your grace. Be with me. Take care of everybody. Love You Sai Baba. Om Sai Ram.
layoffs and unfortunately from many others, I was the one too. Since I am on a work visa the consequences of losing a job is not fun. I went straight to Baba and prayed "Baba, what is all this? Why do I have to face so much? Is something wrong with my prayers?" Praying so I rested calm, wonder of wonders within three days I was called back to the same company and they promoted me after 2 months. And everything till now is going great with Sai Kripa. I believe in His great thought "Look at me faithfully and I in-turn look at you". Baba, You are protecting me as my mother and taking care of me as my father. I now have one problem, my fiancée has got a work visa with Sai Baba's grace. And since we are getting married in March, he has to go for stamping. I completely trust and believe in Sai. I know for sure He is going to shower His blessings. And one more thing to add to this, I always wanted to reside in a place close by to Baba's Mandir and recently I moved to a place which is 6 miles from my place. I am visiting my Mother Sai every Thursday from the day I moved. "Sai Reham Nazar Karna Bachon Ko Palan Karna.
