Sai Sister Chandrima Ji from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am Chandrima. I am an IT professional from Kolkata. I am a strong tech savvy person, but deep faith in spiritualism. I feel Sai Baba’s presence in every moment of my life. Hetal Ji, I want to pay my gratitude towards you for building and maintaining this wonderful blog for Sai devotees for knowing and sharing our experiences related to our beloved Baba. You can edit my posting anywhere you feel. I have come in contact with this blog about 4 months back. Since then I am addicted to this blog and start my day at work after reading the experiences of Sai Baba miracles worldwide.
When I was about 6 years old, I came to know about Baba from my Aunt, who used to stay in Haridwar and often used to visit us in Kolkata. Sai Baba was not that much familiar to Kolkata people at that time (About 25 years back). So I was not very much devotee to Him at that time. My first attachment with Baba happened in the year 2004, when I went to Pune to join in an IT firm, after I got selected through campus recruitment on completion of my engineering. Baba was a very familiar household name in Pune, which I understood once I reached Pune. But I was not that serious about Him at that point of time also until a miracle happened in life.
After joining to the company, some disturbances started with my work life. I got placed to a very bad project, where people were not at all cooperative towards a new joinee like me. They used to scold me like anything, whenever I did a small mistake. Every day there were lots of issues. Working time was very long as I couldn’t finish my work in time. I used to miss my lunch and dinner quite often and was becoming ill day by day. Every night, I used to call my parents and cried like anything expressing my frustration. They were also very worried and asked me to resign and to return back to Kolkata. But without another job in hand, I was not ready to quit. But the situation was becoming worse day by day and I was so scared that they might sack me as I was a trainee and they won’t confirm my job at all.
Then one evening, My roommate, who was also in the same office, told me that she would visit Shirdi with one of her friend, so I should accompany them. Immediately, I agreed. Next day, it was a working day for me, but I applied for leave and my boss rejected it. But, I simply ignored it and started towards Shirdi that night itself by a bus with my friends. That night, I had tremendous headache and was unable to bear the pain while traveling by the bus. Still I tolerated my pain and prayed to Baba silently to remove my pain and tortures in work life.
We reached to Shirdi early in the morning next day. That time also I was feeling very down both mentally and physically. We went to a hotel to get refreshed and purchased red roses and sweets. Once I put my first step, the very miracle happened. A cold breeze touched me all of a sudden from nowhere as it was not at all breezy weather and suddenly I felt a divine presence around me, which can only be felt and cannot be expressed by words. Immediately my headache just got vanished and my mood was uplifted like anything. We saw the morning Aarti in Shirdi and the feeling was so divine. We purchased Baba photos and came back to Pune that afternoon with a very positive spirit.
The very next morning, I went to office and I was told that I am thrown out of that project. On the same day afternoon, I got allocation to another project, which was simply superb. People were extremely cooperative and helpful. The boss was a very nice and kind hearted person and I continued in that project very peacefully for 2 years. This is all happened by Baba’s grace only. This is the first Sai Baba Miracle in my life. It was in the year 2004. After that I have experienced many miracles for last 9 years. I will share all of them in my subsequent posts. We should start and end our day with our beloved Baba to sail through in this world peacefully. May be you we are facing some tough time for some times, but it’s a learning experience, which Baba is teaching us for making us stronger and to make us realise the meaning of Shraddha and Saburi. We should be confident that if we try all our ways and still don’t find a suitable way to cross a hurdle, Baba will be there expanding His kind hand to hold us for crossing our barrier. Om Sachhidananda Sadguru Sri Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai !!!
