Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
At around 9.30 am, I precisely smelt something burning like rubber in the office upon which I asked my colleagues from where this smell is coming from and if they notice anything. Well to my surprise, they did not smell anything as such. Still I kept smelling the same, hence on my own I went and checked everywhere yet there was nothing. So as usual, I kept on chanting Shri Sai’s name as I understood it was not normal that I am smelling something which everyone around is not sensing at all. As soon as it was noon, I took the car and came home directly as usual. I met my uncle at the front door and he was along with the maintenance-boy whom I greeted. While opening the house door, I could hear some noise up. I was evidently suspicious. Immediately I went up the wooden stairs along with my shoes on to find out the reason for the noise and at that very moment I just could not believe what I saw, there was clouds of dark smokes rushing from my room. Obviously I understood there is fire inside, still thinking I will be able to extinguish it with a bucket of water or with a blanket, I went inside the room. It was a very bad thing to do. I could feel the burning heat engulfing all over the body, the flames were of orange-reddish colour and I straight away ran out of the room leaving 1 shoe while doing so. It was a hell like horrible moment yet I had to go through it. I rushed down and called my uncle who came running with the cleaning boy, they seemed to be even more shocked than me as they were here from the time I left for office. So they never expected not even dreamt that such a disaster will ever happen. The fire brigades, police investigators, central water authority, electrical board, neighbours and on top of all, the city media were present. It was a chaotic situation.
Recently I was told that I acted like an insane person at that time as I kept on shouting; “Baba, Baba, Baba!” It was a real chaotic mess in the upper floor. All the rooms turned out black due to the intense smoke. Thank Guru Sai, my parent’s rooms were closed and yet the key was in my room. I had to keenly search the key among the debris in the evening to sleep in their room. After everyone left, the house was in a wild state and that of my so called room was just unrecognizable like that after a tornado but here it was a fire one. Nothing was spared, simply nothing. There was no bed, forget the mattress, only springs were left, no cupboard, windows were blown out, no door itself, just total unimaginable burnt rubber-type waste and smoke. Chaos is only a word here, it was worst and unseen. Yet I took pictures of every rooms. I had to call my parent in that state of mind. While talking to my dad, I almost broke down but thank Guru Sai, I could speak. Being my dad’s habit, he put the cell on loud speaker mode by which my mom heard fire in my room. She just could not accept this horrific news and there was shooting pain in belly button (dad narrated later). Their main concern was my wellbeing and mom’s guilt was that she should not have left me alone. But then, what has to happen will definitely happen whether anyone is around or not! Everything was burnt, dark and smoky yet my faith was firm, brighter and stronger than ever. I am aware of the fact that everything happens for a reason. I do not know the reason but I accept the fact that our Sadguru knows what is best for us. What the Sadguru allows to happen, cannot be futile.
The investigation could not be concluded as nothing was sorted out to be the cause for this ravaging fire. The insurance has already expired and was not yet renewed. For no practical reasons, some so called close people openly said: ‘Oh why couldn’t Your Baba saved your room in which He appeared?’ Others said may there was ‘Sani dorsh’ (Saturn Impact) in your horoscope and that’s why this happened that too on a Saturday. Some said ‘how many times we told your parents that there are so many evil-eyes and jealousies on you! Now see where all these accumulations have finally led!’ Whatever others said did not make a change in me as I strongly feel Shri Sai kept me under His wing all the time. Not even once did my parents say a word about what happened. My mother was extremely grateful that not even a single burn was on body and I was indeed safe. The total damage was massive costing a lot yet with Shri Sai’s divine providence, the whole house underwent a major re-looking. All savings were being used. Interior decors are sublimely exquisite and it is unimaginable that within such a short period of time, tremendous changes took place. After all, everything is for Shri Sai only. Nothing is ours, just nothing! His Will, will be done for sure! Who are we to object and argue? Is it going to change anything by doing so?
Exactly one year after this incident, I was in India for a pilgrimage trip coordinated by the best planner ever- our Sai Samarth only! Firstly to Tiruchendur Muruga’s Temple at the sea-shore. To Isha foundation, Coimbatore and finally to our heaven on this earth : Shirdi! Every single atom in Shirdi is divine for the fervent soul. Sitting in the Dwarkamai and singing the Dhoop Aarti are unforgettable moments. Which child will not feel contented at the maternal house and most comfortable in the mother’s lap?! The whole month of May 2016 is astoundingly unbelievable yet true. Every single detailed is meticulously handled by our all in all, Shri Sai Baba and yet He seems to remain aloof from everything. Coming from the pilgrimage trip, my mother had to attend a graduation at the Royal College of Surgeons in Bahrain. By Shri Sai Samarth’s grace, I only had to accompany her. We had to go to Dubai first and stayed in the Oberoi for four days which was like an adventure. All our seats were reserved in Emirates Business class which was like unimaginable. The cabin crews were very committed in attending to all needs and even advice about the Emirates Skywards which we never knew its meaning nor existence. Everything went on by the loving grace and definitely it was beyond expectation. Recollecting those moments, make emotions to surge to its highest level and bring tears indeed but not because of what happened but because of His matchless love! Yes, this abundance of Sadguru Sai’s unconditional love, makes one to cry like a baby and dive in the vast ocean of gratitude.
For our sure security, our parent takes measures and provides the service of bodyguards and so on. But certainly, let alone die, no one is really prepared to be burnt for someone else, yet Shri Sadguru Sai Baba has done it again. That same room’s wall had the miraculous appearance of Shri Sai’s face along with His life size picture from Shirdi on my first visit, full of holy books on Shri Sai’s
Then I had to go stay with my extended family whom I haven’t spoken to for 10 years. We had to wait for 5 months to meet the requirements of visa application and It was really difficult for me and my husband to stay apart so I started forcing him to tell the solicitor to apply in March when we really should be applying in May. So she booked the appointment for 8th march 2016, I was so happy and one night before the appointment I received a call from my husband that it has been cancelled because our lawyer wasn’t sure whether I will submit all documents when attending appointment or she submit in London directly. I got so angry with my husband, I fought with him so much; told him to change the lawyer in ager, I fought with Baba so much I told him so many bad words but after sometime realised that maybe it happened for a reason and of course Baba saved us and stopped me attending the appointment because if I attended that appointment straightway I would’ve received rejection which means going to appeal which will take months after rejection.
Then she booked appointment for 23rd march 2016, I don’t know what came in my mind, I called my husband told him to ask the lawyer if there’s appointment for first week of April which means we will have paperwork for March as well. So he called our lawyer and she told us that you are lucky you called because there was only one space left for appointment that day. And then we husband planned to visit me and this is the first time we planned to go Shirdi, everything went to nicely. We did Baba’s Darshan in Shirdi for the first time and we loved every second of it. From there we directly went to my appointment, I felt very lucky that I took Baba’s blessings before my appointment. In February I started doing Baba’s 9 Thursday fasting and this time I enjoyed fasting so much. During this I used to spend quite a lot time with Baba because I was alone in India. In April after applying for my visa, everyday I used to wait for their call or message, I completed my fasting on 14th April, we received no answer, another Thursday gone and I got call my friend that she received her visa when she applied same day as mine. That day me and my husband broke completely and we cried so much and thought they will take very long to decide my application because of my overstay in England and generally they will straight way reject my application if I overstayed in England and I asked Baba to show me sign that You will grant my visa (to answer me you give me a flower) next day afternoon my grand-mum (who travelled from Canada to India urgently because I was getting life threatening messaged from our far relative) told me that some Baba gave you flower, He was wearing orange clothes and told you to keep flowers everywhere in the house. I was happy when I heard that but I that period was so difficult due to problems in family that I didn’t want to take my hopes high and what If I get answer in negative.
My fight with Baba continued, when I was sitting with Him, from nowhere a cockroach came out of the table where Baba was sitting and went straight underneath my suitcase and when I went to remove the cockroach from my suitcase, there was lizard sitting underneath the suitcase which made me to remove my suitcase outside and that time I felt Baba telling me to get ready, it’s time to go! But again I thought its me over thinking then on 3rd may I received a call from my husband that they made a decision on our application and they sending to Jalandhar blue dart office. Oh my god! My legs were shaking, I could not just talk, I was happy but very very nervous and scared. So next morning on Tuesday I went to pick up my parcel and they said they haven’t received it, call on Thursday to check if we got your parcel. These two days were most difficult for us, it was decision of life and death. So on Thursday, I went in the afternoon as they called me that it’s there now. That half an journey to their office made my body numb completely and this side my husband is very nervous, panic, scared to know the decision. As soon as I open the parcel the first line I red “your application is successful” Oh my Baba, You saved us, You saved us. That one line changed our life. We owe You everything my Baba. Then straight we went to Baba’s temple in Jalandhar and of course I was over the moon to found out that finally I will be going back to my home. This all happened because of my Baba only because of Him, I love You Baba.
So I called my boyfriend around the 3rd week, and he agreed to set a date to meet a few days later to help me solve the fake problem I told him about. When I finally met him, we spent a nice day together, But at the end of the day he broke up with me, saying that we have too many problems, and he said he had cheated on me by sleeping with someone when he was overseas. I was devastated, Totally heartbroken. That my boyfriend did this to me, and also that Sai Baba let me down. I stopped praying to Baba then. I stopped praying to any God. I was depressed and could not do anything. I asked my boyfriend after the breakup if we could still continue messaging as it will be easier for me to cope with this and he agreed. I did not know if I still had hope or not. Then 2 days later I started talking to Baba again, saying that please make him want me back, and make him run back to me and struggle to get me back the same way I struggled to get him. Even if You think he is not good for me, please at least make him want me, then only my mind will get peace. And Then 4 Days After The Breakup Came The Miracle. He asked if he can call me and talk to me. So i talked to him, and he said that he was not happy about what he did to us, and that he wanted me back. He said he had not slept with anyone, but had lied about that just to get away from me. But, he said that he did indeed had feelings for another girl during his overseas trip whom I thought was his close friend only. But he said after he left me, he realised that he can’t stay away from me and was in a lot of pain while away from me. He was really down and really wanted me back and was upset with himself that he did this to us. So after telling him that he has to stop everything with the other girl and I will not tolerate anymore lies, we are back together now.
So everyone who is reading this, don’t ever give up on Sai Baba, He may seem to disappoint you at first, but when the time comes, He will give you what you want. Earlier I had gotten so many hints that I will not get my boyfriend, but I did not give up on my prayer and faith. And see where I am now. So please, you don’t give up too. Baba is great, Baba is everything. Even if I thank Him a billion or infinity number of times, it’s not enough. He gave me back my life, my soul, my happiness, my everything. He will do it for you too. Even if people tell you that someone is not meant for you, don’t listen to them. Just pray to Baba and never give up. You will get what you want, have faith. Now I am slowly completing whatever I had vowed to Sai Baba to do when I get my boyfriend back. Om Sai Ram, Sri Sai Ram, Jai Sai Ram.
Before 2 days he had an interview, they asked my husband to wait as the results were to be declared then and there. He texted me and asked me to pray for the results. I opened the live Darshan of Sai Maa where I could feel He was smiling, I kept on praying. As soon as I prayed my husband was called inside by the director and he was told that he has been selected. There were very less chances for him to get selected and it is a complete miracle how it happened. Today he went to confirm about the joining, again I was praying and getting positive signs and finally he got the joining date in the next week. Thanks a lot Sai Maa for being there with us always. We love You a lot. One more miracle happened today itself. My husband was doing a certification course and was studying to appear in the final exam. Today when he went to appear in the exam he was told that throughout the training he has performed excellent and he has already passed the exam. Soon he will be getting the certificate without even appearing in the exam. Thanks a ton Sai Maa. Keep us under Your wings always. Om Shri Sai Ram.
