My First experience dates back to the time when i had done my graduation and had applied for masters. I scored 1st division in my graduation and had extra weight age as i had kept ‘honours’ as a subject in my graduation. So i had filled forms for masters in almost all the colleges of my city. And once after submitting the form i was going back to my home, and on the way i just closed my eyes and thanked Baba that i was able to submit the form successfully despite the long queues. And just as i opened my eyes, what i saw was a complete surprise. I saw a medium sized Idol of Sai Baba, white in colour, under a tree, which i had never seen before at that place. I was astonished to see this view. This experience brought massive happiness to me. Finally the counselling day came. The counselling in all the colleges was on the same day and at the same time. I had different ranks in different colleges in which i had filled form for masters. So i went first to that college, with my father, in which i had good rank, hoping i would get admission in that college. But while the counselling was taking place, i realised that the competition was huge and i had very little chance of getting admission in that college. So we requested the Mam to kindly allow us to go to other colleges to attend the counselling so that i did not miss my seat. She allowed us to go and asked us to return within 2 hours. So, my father and i went to other colleges.
While on the way, i just closed my eyes and prayed to Baba to please help me. I opened my eyes and saw Baba’s Picture in a car going on the same road. I took it as an indication that Baba was asking me to keep patience and faith in Him. We went to all other colleges and got disappointed as the cut-off percentage was very high in all other colleges and all the seats had been occupied. But in one college (lets name this college ‘B’), the authorities told us that we could come next day to college and might get admission. After that, we returned back to the first college within 2 hours. I came back to the first college. So i attended the counselling and here also the cut off was very high and all the seats got occupied. I returned home & was disheartened. The very next day we went to college B where the authorities had asked us to come the next day. We went there and talked to the lecturers and got to know that i had no scope of getting admission in this college as i had not attached my ‘honours’ degree with my form. Therefore, i did not get weight age and thus i could not get any seat as my rank had gone very far and i did not qualify for the remaining seats. Hearing this, i cried in front of the lecturers as i had lost all the hopes of getting admission in regular master’s degree. Seeing me crying, one of the lecturers advised me to fill on the spot form in another branch of this college. I filled form in this college and to my surprise i got admission and while i came crying out of the college B, i closed my eyes and asked Baba ‘will i get admission?’ and when i opened my eyes i saw a big Picture of Sai Baba on the rear windshield of a car in front of me. I somehow again got an indication that Sai Baba was asking me to keep faith and patience and then i got admission due to Him.
I was very happy but something inside me was going because the college in which i had taken admission was very far from my place and i had no idea how i would go to college as i was not perfect in driving on busy roads. It was 12th July, when i got admission. The next day was my birthday i.e. 13th July and it was a Saturday. So on 12th evening, i got to know from a friend of mine that the college from where i had done my graduation had got affiliation for masters as it was doubtful before that my college might not get affiliation for masters. So i had just filled a form in my college, without any hope. The counselling in my college was on 13th July (my birthday). My friend asked me to visit the website of my college and check my rank. I checked my rank and it was quite good. I had a feeling that i could get admission in my college and later on i would get migration done from the college in which i had already taken admission to my college if i get admission here and i could get my fee refunded.
The next day i went to my college with my mom. After long wait and patience, i got my name in the waiting list and they asked me to come on 15th July i.e. Monday as 14th was Sunday. I had full faith that i would definitely get admission in my very own college which is very near to my place. On 15th i went to college in the morning, and Mam asked me that she would definitely inform me when any seat is vacant as i was the first one in waiting and i got a call from her in the afternoon that i had finally got a seat in my very own college. I was so happy and my mother, hearing this news, got tears of happiness in her eyes as after a big struggle i got admission in a perfect college, which is near to my place. I went there and deposited the fee and finally got admission in my college. I thanked Sai Baba a lot for this. Really, Baba is a Saviour. He helps us, guides us and protects us. I used to dislike my college in my graduation days but now i just love my college because it is the right place for me as all the lecturers know me very well and since it is the first time that our college has got masters course, so all the faculty members are very concerned about the students and they work very hard on their students. And my performance has also improved as compared to my performance in graduation.
So in the end i would just like to say a huge, massive thank You to my Guarding Angel Sai Baba, Who has been constantly helping and taking care of all of us. Thank You Sai Baba and would also like to thank everyone who has shared their experiences on this page which has added to our faith and confidence in Sai Baba. Thank You Sai Baba Thank you all.
