Anonymous Devotee from Finland says: Hi Hetal Ji, Om Sai Ram. You are doing a great and wonderful service. My day is not complete without reading devotees experiences. This is my second experience. I request you to kindly post my experience. Please keep me anonymous. Please post this experience with this photo. This is my favorite picture, which was taken in Baba’s temple in Bangalore.
Let me now go to my experience. Like everyone say I do have lot and lot of experience in fact I can call them miracles that had happened in my life. My childhood days were the best and I had in fact enjoyed to the maximum. My life turned topsy turvy (in fact my family’s) after our Dad’s dismissal. Everything in our life was changed. I hope one can understand the difficulties a family will face, when head of the family is no more. I was in my engineering first year. My elder brother was 21 years old. My younger brother was doing his 11th standard. My mom doesn’t know anything except my dad, dad and dad from the time she was married to him.
During those days, I don’t know anything about our Shirdi Sai Baba, but surprising things was that He was always with me in my room. I really don’t know how Baba’s idol came to my room and I always carry Him unknowingly wherever I have been (like I was in hostel for my eng and MBA). One thing I am very confident is that Baba’s idol should have come to my home via my dad and I would have taken it from him (I don’t remember). If I think of having Baba’s idol unknowing (I mean here is not knowing the value of Him) for so many years is like my dad had given to me knowing he will be not with me and Baba will take care of me forever in my Dad’s place. Honestly saying among everyone in my family, I was the one who always had the best of education, best standard of life etc. everything I can say. Actually, when I joined MBA way back 2004, that is when I starting believing in our Baba. Thanks to my husband, who took me to Baba’s temple. Everything changed in my life after believing Baba. End of my third semester, I got placed and also started working immediately before my project and then my husband moved to Bangalore and just like that I went for a walk-in to Bangalore for an Indian MNC and I got the offer (but it was contract).Then I got permanent in the same company and also changed my work area of my interest. I had always been very successful in my work in this organization and decided to quit after my daughter was born. Since I was looking for a flexible work environment and by Baba’s grace, I got into the company, where I really wanted to be. In fact initially one month was very difficult, but still I got a shift to the different team and also got work from home options. I truly believe that nothing would have been possible without Baba’s grace and blessings. All time I have been doing good in my career without any break from the time I started working. But I did have my bad time career wise. Otherwise yes Baba was always giving us the best. My husband had to move to out of country for his assignment and I had to quit my job in India to join him and thought after my daughter gets comfortable and she gets into the kindergarten I will look for a job. With Baba’s grace yes she also got into a kindergarten nearby to the place, where we stayed, otherwise it was very difficult to get a place in kindergarten, when mom is not working. And she loves to be there and she also got lot of friends now. Then it was time for me to search for a job and language was a big issue and I applied for all kinds of job, but they were looking for candidates, who can speak local language. Only response I received was “Sorry we will not be able to consider your resume”. This continued and I was really upset and then not able to be at home and thinking about our future and commitments we have, I was really going mad. Then I got admitted in local language course for beginners and I was little relaxed, since I was learning something. Then suddenly one day before going to sleep, I thought let me check if there are any opening and also prayed Baba that “Baba, if at all I get something, which is similar to my profile, then I will apply for it and I should get it. Otherwise I should not find anything, which matches my profile” and started searching. With Baba’s grace, I came across a requirement, which was more or less matching mine and then I thought ok let me format my resume and apply tomorrow. And then it was Thursday, I formatted my resume and then as usual after my prayer and poojas, I applied. On Friday, I got an email for telephonic interview and then it started this way. All this was only by Baba’s grace. Yes it took three months for me to get the offer letter, but still now I joined my work and it’s a full time job here for me. Every time, I was upset I used to cry, shout and do all crazy things thinking about my plight and our commitments, but finally I will tell my husband and mom “Baba will not let me down. He is there for me. He is teaching what life is and teaching me ‘Faith’ and ‘Patience’” and I will calm down. Dear devotees I would say just have “Faith” and “Patience” and believe in Baba that “He will not let us down” and for sure will get success.
