In the month of March, suddenly I got an offer to attend a training at some other place, where my husband was already going as faculty. So he planned in such a way that it becomes a family trip and all of us can go as kids were also having holidays and also we can visit our native place, which is nearby. But one of my projects was ending on 31st March, for which I has to do lot of work and submit the report before 31st March. In between this training had come, which was from March 18th -23rd and it was impossible to finish the entire report before 18th and even after coming back within a week as lot of work was left. So I was so tensed.
I wanted to go for the training as it was a combined family trip, but the problem was how will I finish my work. Then I came to know that office has also given permission to attend the training, so certainly I had to go. But what’s about my report? At least it needed some 10-15 days work and I was so tensed how to manage this. In fact there was no way out to complete this entire work before going for the training or after coming from the training as in all I was wasting 10 days for the training as we were going by train. I had only BABA to save me, but everything seems impossible as things cannot be done overnight.
I was thinking why at all BABA planned this training if there is so much tension. But BABA had planned something else for me, which was much more greater a reward and was absolutely beyond my imagination. What actually happened is that just two days before going, I came to know that people are taking extensions of their project for 2-4 months. Many people in my office did this. But again this was a big problem for me as my Boss is against extension. So I just sidelined this thought and couldn’t dare to ask him for the same. Then my other colleagues convinced me to request my Boss for extension as this extension was very beneficial for me for some other purpose. As I had no choice, I went to talk to my Boss regarding the extension and by BABA’s grace and to my surprise he readily agreed. My happiness had no bounds and I could not believe that BABA will solve my problem like this. One I could peacefully attend the training program and visit my native place. Second, my project also got extended by which I got extra benefit. And during that time I really needed a break. This is the greatness of BABA, which no one can imagine in his dreams also. I could never believe that this could ever happen that too so easily.
Not only this, the tickets which we had booked for the trains, were not confirmed. Only one ticket out of three got confirmed. So my husband suggested that one person along with my younger son (who is not 5 years old and so doesn’t need ticket) can go and the remaining two (myself and my elder son) can go by plane. But that spoils the entire purpose of the journey so we were again in lot of tension. I tried from other sources like railway quota etc. But everyone said that there is no chance of confirmation at it was 1st class ticket. But I told my husband that you should not worry, BABA has planned this trip for us. When He has cleared such a big hurdle, then confirmation of tickets is nothing in front of that. Have faith on him and don’t change the program.
BABA will definitely confirm the tickets. Till the last moment we could not know about the tickets and we had not booked the taxi for going to the railway station. Though the chart gets prepared before 4 hours of the departure of the train, but that day we were not able to know anything. BABA was simply testing our patience. And just before one hour, when the train had to leave we saw that all the tickets got confirmed. Who else other than BABA could do it as I even tried from MP quota and they refused. So BABA planned by beautiful trip and also made all arrangements for that. BABA, YOU ARE GREAT!!!
So all I can say is that SAI BABA is very much here, there, everywhere. He proves this again and again. He is there to listen to all you have to say. He fulfils all our righteous wishes and suppresses bad desires through appropriate experiences and makes us realize the futility of those bad desires. He always comes to hold my hand, when I go through a very rough time. His mercy is great and really I have no words to explain that how He dig me out from all obstacles, what I am facing or have faced before. SAI manifests Himself in so many ways just to fulfill the wishes of His devotees. He listens to your innermost thoughts and reciprocates His love in response to our deep longing for Him. Sometime we can think that there no response for our prayers. But all you have to do is to show patience. SAI BABA knows when to give. But it is sure that HE won’t let us down. Don’t get despair. HE is sure to help us. So always chant.
