Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Coming to my experience I have been an average or I can say below average student all the time. I don't know for some reason I couldn't concentrate on my studies. Even in my graduation I didn't do well because of which I had one arrears subject and therefore I couldn't get my graduation certificate. I tried to clear the arrear but because of my health issue and other reasons I was unable to pass the exam. Later I wanted to do job. But because I didn't have certificate I was afraid that nobody would give me a job. Then I did a diploma in computers and I secured 88% in that course by Baba's grace. Then I thought it's the right time to try for IT jobs. I tried for 1 year but I didn't get any job. Later one day I received a call from a consultancy mentioning that they had a position in one of their client location and if I was interested I would have to join immediately. I immediately said yes and next day a person from the consultancy conducted the interview with me. I spoke to him confidently (I always believe it was Baba who made me talk so confidently). He said I was selected and I need to send the soft-copy of certificates to him. I was worried but by taking Baba's name I sent him my diploma certificate. Believe me he didn't say a single word and I started for my job the very next day. And the wonder part is before I got selected for this position another person was already selected but he got another job and he left this position. That person’s name was SAI. When the consultant told me his name was SAI, I was just wonder stuck. Our lord SAI wanted me to take that job, and that is what I understood from this experience. It was such a wonderful experience working with very nice people. Though I had some fears inside me, it’s Baba Who made me overcome the hurdles.
I got very good appreciation for my work from the client. Sometime later I had to leave the job because as I had to go to my hometown. When I was leaving the job everyone from my team and other teams as well came and gave a very good farewell. I cannot forget ever in my life those wonderful moments. For more than a year I had no job and couldn't do any other stuff like business. I was becoming restless day by day and finally decided to move to the place where I previously worked. When I tried to contact my previous client, she said right now they didn't have any openings. I didn't know what to do other than praying Baba to help me. I tried applying to other consultancies and luckily they called me for interviews but I wasn't successful either some other person had more experience than me or I didn't have the skills that they needed. I was getting down day by day. I was asking Baba, is this the reason that I didn't study properly and now I'm suffering for it. Then one day I got a call from a big company for interview and I attended for the same. While I was going for the interview in a cab, the driver said why are you nervous and I said I have an interview. He said don't worry; you are definitely going to get this job. But later I heard from the consultancy that I didn't get through. I was getting depressed and was asking Baba to help me. I started reading Sai Satcharitra and also the devotees’ experiences on this blog. Then after few days again I got a call from the same company that I was selected. I couldn't believe myself. See how Baba helps His devotees at the right moment. Then I remembered the cab driver’s words and now I believe that it was Sai who talked to me in the form of the driver. Now I was going to join on Vijaya Dashami day. Baba's plans are unimaginable. And also one thing to say that my friends and family prayed a lot for me to get this job. Friends, I believe if we are unable to help anybody at least we can pray for them, prayers have so much powers. I have decided when somebody is in need of help, if I'm unable to help them directly I will definitely pray for them. Thanks a lot everyone for reading my experience. Sai bless you all with good health and success. Love You Sai.
I had never imagined my H1 would be picked/get approved for the first time I applied. I am not even sure my employer did apply H1 for me as I was not having any job at that point of time. I just asked Baba to do what was needed for me, to be frank I was reluctant in applying H1B for the first time of my OPT Period, reason being I don’t want to make the probability of getting picked more difficult for the people who were in their final term of applying as I thought I still have 2 more chances with the OPT Extension 24 month rule. After a month, government had made few changes to the OPT extension policy, which in my case was impossible to get the extension. I was in complete daze, I was not following up with my employer about my H1 visa application as I stated earlier. All of a sudden I got an email saying my H1 got picked, but that didn’t give me any sort of relief because I didn’t apply with client letter and also my area of study was different from the Job I was doing. My then situation was, if I didn’t get my H1 approved I should have to leave the country, all these were happening during the first week of May. Me, neither my employer was sure of getting it approved reasons being no client letter and different area of study. I didn’t have proper sleep for one week and just one thing was in my mind all the time ‘Om Sai Ram’ and I think I was also requesting Baba to show up in front of me; You know what? The following Thursday I got a call from my employer stating “my H1 was approved and that was not a simple/common thing to happen, with the documents we submitted and with current approval rate”.
I was speechless and kneeled down in front of Baba for the miracle He had shown to me and that made me to see/acknowledge the presence of Baba around me all the time. I am indebted for the love and support Baba is showing towards me and I just wanted to chant His name and try to follow His teachings for the rest of my life. Om Sai Ram! Peace be to all; Hetalji be blessed always.
