Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
It was in the month of Feb, 2016 when unfortunately my last company (a real estate firm) had to be closed down as no profit was coming anymore and so I was unemployed. But this time the situation was very different unlike previous times. But I always had complete faith in our Sai Baba. I wanted to change my industry, I wanted to join a logistics company and so in the month of Feb itself I acquired certified trade and logistics professional from Dubai trade. After my cancellation of previous working visa I still had a month's time to exit the country. I tried few hands but nothing worked out and so I had to leave the country and had to come back on a 3 months visit visa.
I forgot to mention I am married and I had to leave my wife as she couldn’t quit her job and so it was a very painful time for both of us. I came back in the month of March and thus I started applying and updating my resume on all the job portals. In the mean time I thought to join one of my friend’s company who is a customs broker which is related to logistics. It was just to gain some practical knowledge and not exactly for salary, which will add up to my resume as I had never got any experience in logistics before. From the job portals I hardly got any calls because the time was not good in regards with hiring of employees throughout UAE. I got a couple of calls from references but nothing worked out and my visit visa of 3 months was going to end. Throughout these times I just prayed Sai to help me to come out of this situation. And so the day came (mid June) when I had to go and exit again from the country and on top of it my passport was too expiring in the month of November 2016 and I had to renew it. So the first thing I did when I went to India was that I renewed my passport. Even at that time I had witnessed Sai miracles in regards with passport renewal formalities. So on June 27th 2016 I came back to UAE in search of a job once again. During these 4 months I was upset, exhausted, irritated, frustrated, angry, helpless and of course jobless. I was thinking why Sai Baba, why? Whenever I prayed You, You have showed Your miracles but why it’s so that this time I am left out all alone?
But I knew Sai Baba is testing my faith and patience which is what Sai Baba says to all His devotees. And so once again I started updating my resume and within a week’s time I got a call from a logistics related company. I was so happy I gave the interview and they said they will call me, I was happy as I gave the interview nicely and was expecting a call from them but at the same time I felt I lacked experience but nevertheless I thought I can make it but days passed by and no response from them. Prior to real estate I had work experience in tele-communication (collection specialist) in UAE so my mind was wandering to join back this industry as I had made up my mind not to join a real estate firm anymore. Thus I started applying for tele-communications too but side by side I didn't lose hope in logistics too. Two weeks passed by, still no calls from anywhere. I was really upset but kept my hope on our Sai Baba as always. During all these things, I always read stories of devotees from this site and other Sai pages which brought me happiness peace and a strong belief in our Sai. All these times I prayed to Sai that once I got a job I would do 9 Guruwar vrat. But I don’t know whenever I read stories of devotees some or the other did 9 Guruwar vrat before their wishes were completed and in only a couple of devotee’s stories I came across where they did 9 Guruwar vrat after their wish got completed. In my case I prayed once my wish gets complete I will do the 9 vrat but somewhere or the other my mind would say should I do the vrat before but then my mind would say no. Between the battles of my mind I came across of Sai divya pooja in one of the stories but I didn’t do it, then one Thursday which is 30th June my wife got a book of Sai from a devotee in the Sai temple. When I saw the book on the cover page it was written Sai Divya pooja and I thought my Sai is telling me to do this pooja. So on July 7th 2016 I started doing Sai divya pooja and vowed for 5 Thursdays. I asked Sai Baba either You put me into logistics job or into tele-communications but my first preference would be logistics. As I said earlier I was looking into tele-communication, I got through one of my friend who worked earlier with me in a tele collection firm in UAE. He asked me to forward my resume, which he further forwarded it to his manager. So on 14th July 2016 which was a Thursday and that too my second divya pooja I got a call from my friend’s company saying an interview appointment around 4pm. I was happy thinking at least I will join the company and start bread and butter for my family and will give a pause to my logistics dream until I get break through into it. I gave the interview and like always even they said will call back for a second interview and days passed by and I didn’t get a call.
Now the interesting part of the story begins, during the month of March, April, June I contacted one of my friend who is into one of the leading logistics company. At that time he said no hiring at the moment. So on my second visa visit, I contacted him again and he said there is a vacancy going on and so I forwarded my resume and I got a call on 18th July 2016 for an interview on 19th July 2016 which was a Guru Pournima day, I was so happy as our Sai Baba is Sadguru and interview on this auspicious day means a lot to me. Also on 18th July itself I got a call from the earlier telecommunication company (collection) where I gave the interview on 14th July saying to come for a final interview on 19th July. But deep in my mind I was happy for the logistic interview. So on Guru Pournima day I gave the interview for the logistic company. There were 2 rounds, as it was a contact centre executive job role but nevertheless I was happy as being a logistics company. They said they will contact me within 2 days as the vacancy to be filled were plenty and many candidates had come for the interview. In the mean time I didn’t go for the final interview of tele-communication Company because here my Sai Baba was planning for me. He purposely didn’t want me to join tele-communication (collections) and so he gave me an opportunity of an interview in a logistic company.
So two days passed after 19th July, Wednesday and Thursday and I didn’t receive a call or a mail from the logistic company but in that two days wherever I went outside I was seeing all red-white colour, I was thinking is Sai Baba giving me an indication that I will be selected because the logo of that logistic company is red and white as well as I was seeing their vehicles wherever I went, I felt happy but at the same time I felt sad of not getting a call or a mail. On top of it Friday and Saturday are holidays in UAE in most of the logistics company. So my last hope was on Sunday 24th July. As I know it’s a long story but I am cutting it short on morning 24th July I prayed first Shirdi Sai Baba online live arati as I always do that and then I checked my mail and there it was the mail which I was waiting for so long of being selected . I felt so happy and after 5 months of long wait finally I got a job all because of our beloved Sai Baba. Really His two principles which are Shraddha and Saburi are really important in every aspects of life. I love You Sai Baba a lot. I have attached 4 pictures two of them are question and answer which I did during my job hunt times, 3rd picture is of Dubai Sai Baba temple and 4th picture is the Guru Pournima day (my interview day)of Shirdi Sai Baba which I clicked it the moment I saw it, as the best part is Sai Baba wore a red colour cloth which again is my company logo colour and Baba giving me a hint that this logistic would be mine (Due to format of the submission form, only one picture got attached and uploaded in this post). Anant Koti Raja Di Raj yogi Raj Par Brahmah Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
This thing happened to me when I joined my first job. That day was my father's retirement and I was supposed to take my mom to the function. I promised my mom that I'll be home by 4'o clock. The day before I told my manager that I would be leaving early as I need to attend the function and he agreed for it. Next day I went to office as usual. After some time my manager suddenly came to me and asked me to drove till Nzamabad(200 km away from Hyderabad) for a function to be attended and he promised that we would be back before 4. As it was my first job I agreed for it. But Baba gave me a sign not to go. I ignored it and went to Nizamabad. I couldn't fulfil my promise which I made to my mother. And none of us attended my father's retirement function.
There is another incidence where Baba saved my life. I was studying MCA . Through a network, I met my school friend. So we decided a date to meet. On the meeting date, my mother got a dream in which Baba asked her to read atleast 5 aadhaya's of Sai satya vrat. At that time she was unable to understand the importance of reading. And as usual she did the reading. While I was about to leave from home, my mother applied Udi on my forehead and asked me to take some Udi in mouth. I took my bike, went to the meeting spot where my friend was waiting. We both decided to go to some restaurant and chat there. So we both were riding on my bike. While I was about to take a u-turn on the road, suddenly a car came from behind and hit my bike. And our bike skid for a distance and we hit the divider. Luckily we both were wearing helmet so we escaped head injury. But we got some minor injuries on hands and legs. When I told this to my mother then she realized why Baba asked to read those aadhayas. While I was working, I fell in love with a girl (she is my distant relative) whom I have met on social site. I asked Baba shall I propose her or not. And Baba gave me green signal for this. Everything was going on fine until my parents decided to look a match for me. Just not to hurt my parents, I didn't tell about my relationship initially. For many proposals, kundali was not getting matched and it got rejected. I was happy for that. But for one of the match kundali got matched. So I thought that I need to break-up my relationship as I didn't want to hurt my parents. I said ok for the marriage. After some days my parents were looking for an auspicious day to conduct engagement ceremony. In the meantime I asked Baba about the marriage; he said that marriage will happen within relatives. Then one day suddenly my father got a call from the girl's mother and she told that they don’t want to continue with the alliance as girl's father slipped in the bathroom and it will take time for him to recover. My mother felt very sad for this. Then one day Baba gave me strength and I told about my relationship to my father. After seeing the picture, he told me that they have already seen her in one of our relative's marriage. But at that time they cancelled because she was studying at that time. But my father accepted my proposal and we got married. After successful completing 4yrs of marriage, I came to US for job purpose. It all happened because of Baba's grace. He told me that "visa mil jaayega"(I would get Visa) and I got visa stamp in December. In March I came to US and started looking for a job. Within a week I got an interview call from one company. I asked Baba about this before going to the interview, He told me that I would get success. After the interview was done, they offered me my offer letter but I didn’t join the company because of less pay. Then again I started looking for another job. And my job search went on for more than 3 months. I used to cry in front of Baba's picture. Baba was testing my patience which I was losing. But I was having firm faith in Him. And after some months He gave me a job that too for a long term. Thanks a lot Baba for always being there for me.
