As I said, I am a post graduate student in a medical college in India. It has become increasingly difficult to get a postgraduate medical seat from this year due to change in the nature of regulations. I completed my MBBS in December 2011. Owing to the fact that I was preparing for MD entrance, I was sitting at home without going to work in spite of having a degree.
That one year of preparation was extremely challenging because of tremendous pressures and expectations from all sources. Meanwhile we were unable to find a match for my brother and he was of marriageable age. Also my father wished to build a house in our hometown. Somehow we were not able to initiate it. So all our prayers had 3 wishes in it: a MD seat for me, a suitable life partner for my brother and a house as per my parents wish. Sai has made all these come true.
During this one year regularly and sincerely I prayed to Shri Sai. I brought His idol home from the nearby Shirdi Sai Baba temple and worshiped. I did Parayan of Shri Sai Satcharitra many times. I also used to read this blog regularly. And by December 2012, a lot of miracles happened. I was supposed to write an exam in another city, which was very far off. It would take me two days at least and also multiple modes of transport like flight, bus, car etc. But that exam was my dream exam for admission into a reputed college. My brother was supposed to accompany me as my friends had already made their arrangements. Brother applied for leave at his work place and booked tickets for the two of us.
Somehow in the last minute, while I was filling application, I realized that there was no seat in general category in the specialty of my choice. I believe it was Sai Leela. And it completely changed everything. I decided not to go for the exam. My brother was bit upset as he had to cancel air tickets and that involved a loss of few thousand rupees. Then to my surprise my friends, who had gone had some major loss during air travel, which cumulative ran to a lakh or so. Worse still the exam was cancelled due to some reasons and it was rescheduled for a later date. The re-examination was a very tough paper, which only few people cleared. Sai saved me from all this!
Then I had to write a common exam for applying for all colleges. I could not get centre anywhere nearby. All nearby state centres were booked. By Sai grace, I got centre in my hometown in a slot of my choice. So we all went to my hometown and my brother utilized his earlier applied leave for this. After many years, all four of us traveled to native place together.
During our trip my father was able to start the home construction work. I wrote my exam. And to everyone’s surprise, my brother met a prospective alliance and both families finalized the wedding. Last week, marriage was held in my hometown. Despite all oddities that came in way of the marriage, with just Parayan of Sai Satcharitra, all the obstacles were cleared off. Then in the month of February 2013, I cleared the MD entrance of the same college in which I did my MBBS. Even though my rank was not very high, by Sai grace, there was so much unexpected movement in the list and I got my choice specialty easily. I am a day scholar as my father is also a professor in the same medical college. My MD is expected to get over in 2016 March and in 2016 April my father is to retire from here. Sai seems to have planned everything in our best interests.
After 1 week of joining MD, I had lot of tearing in my right eye. My specialty involves the use of microscope for long hours. I use spectacles and last year due to being busy preparation, I did not get an eye check up done. I thought maybe my power has changed. One evening, I went to a private eye clinic, where I was incidentally found to have unacceptably high pressure in both eyes. I was shocked as my career could be doomed even before it started.
I then went to a nearby shop to buy something. There I was totally disturbed by the thoughts of what would happen to my career. In that shop, I noticed a huge Shirdi Sai photo. I enquired from the shopkeeper, where he got that photo of Sai. He said it was sent to him from Shirdi. I kept staring at that picture for a while and that shopkeeper gave me two small calendars with Sai photo on the opposite side. It was a Saturday. I had to wait until Monday afternoon to get a consult in my hospital. The specialist, whom I met, checked the pressures himself. I kept chanting Sai’s name hoping for the pressures to be normal. But then he told me that the private clinic people were right and my pressures were high in both eyes. My body went cold.
Then he checked again to see if the pressures had already caused any damage to the nerves in my eye. Surprisingly it was fully normal. He then told that it could be possible that my cornea were thick and that the pressures maybe a false high value. Being a medical student with being topper in eye exam in my medical days, I knew that whatever he was telling could be true, but it’s not common. That was when I remembered that I had read an experience of a Sai devotee in this very blog, where such an incident was described. Then I hope wished and prayed that I also should also have a thick cornea and that this whole glaucoma threat should just pass off. I kept chanting at the back of my mind Sai’s name. And guess what my cornea was found to be very thick! I cried all the way back home being so grateful to Sai for His miracle. I just had a minor change in power in my right eye, finally which got corrected with glasses with corrected power.
Sai You have blessed us with everything that we asked for. I apologies to You for all the mistakes that I have done and always wish to be under Your care. Please crush our ego and always hold our hand at every step.
Shri Satchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
