Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hello Hetal Ji, I am a simple Indian girl who has been brought up with rich Indian values. I have firm believe in my lord Sainath. I have experienced His bless-full hand on me and my family. Although no words of mine could ever narrate His actions but through this small gesture I just want to share with my other co-devotees that Sai Baba will save you and protect you in every way and soon bless you with all you rightfully deserve. I am a devotee of Sai. I can’t think a day without my lord. I pray that You become the inspiration of my every thought and action. I am very thankful to Sai for bringing back happiness in my life after a turmoil of heart breaking events. No words of mine could ever thank for His blessings but I am just trying to thank Him this way.
Once I dreamt that I was going to some place, while I was crossing the road, I saw an old man coming towards me with a great speed. As He came nearer, to my surprise He was Sai Baba. Looking at Him, I became still. He came to me and said, “Give all that you have.” I wasn’t carrying much; whatever I had I gave Him readily. While I was searching my pockets for the last penny, my lord Sai told me, “Open your hand.” I took my hand towards Him and He started putting coins in my hand….1..2…3…4..5…….9. Looking at this I was thrilled, amazed and could only utter. ” Sai, aap mujhe 9 sikke de rahe ho (Sai You are giving me 9 coins)”. May be I was so moved that I couldn’t keep my eyes close for any long and woke up. I stayed quiet for a while and wished if I would have slept a little more and hear the reply from my dear Sai. That dream made my day and my life.
Today my biggest treasure, my husband, the biggest gift my Sai has given me and I thank Him every day for that. My story dates five years back when my family was preparing for my big day, my wedding. I am a teacher by profession teaching in a well reputed school, belonging to a middle class family in NCR. My father has spent all his income mainly on the education of us brother sisters. I was the eldest of all and both my brothers were studying then. Everyone in the family was happy and I too was excited and nervous. My wedding got fixed up hurriedly. The groom’s parents wanted an early marriage on the pretext that their son keeps travelling abroad on different projects and auspicious days are near and few, so after much persuasion my parents also agreed. So in a month’s time I was set in a new house with new faces around. In the beginning everything seemed good. People were nice and caring, husband was good, and financially things were sound. I was pretty happy with the turn of events and took it as blessing of the almighty. I had to quit my job then as I got relocated to a new place, things were okay with me as I knew I could easily find one soon. Moreover it was told to me that soon he will be relocated abroad so in any case I will have to resign.
Within a month I got a job in another reputed school of Delhi and I headed on with my profession. Life looked very smooth and peaceful to me and I was very thankful. Soon I got to know that my husband has to leave for USA on a new project. Being a newly married girl, that was a hard nut to crack but I accepted thinking of his professional growth. I continued to stay with my in-laws and working in Delhi. He was in touch on the phone. I also visited him once in US. After much wait, finally after almost a year of marriage, he took me along, again I had to leave my job. But that was indeed much awaited time for me and I thought finally things are looking brighter for me and we will get to stay together now. Things were fine till one day he told me we will be returning India in a month and I will have to stay there again for sometime till he winds up his project in USA. He told me he is in talks with his boss to assign him some UK project so he will take me there on a long term visa. I consoled myself somehow again.
We came back India. He stayed there for a week and then left for USA again. This was the time when everything shuffled up in my life or maybe it was there earlier but I could see only now. All of a sudden, he completely changed his behaviour towards me, he stopped taking my calls or whenever had to, use to speak rudely over the phone. I was puzzled and tried introspecting at my own behaviour, tried to talk to him to find what and where did I make fault so that I can correct myself, but in vain. Nothing could change his behaviour. He came to India after sometime around Diwali and told me that he has a separate life of his own and I make no match to his kind of lifestyle. Clueless and dejected, I did not know which door to knock. Finally I discussed the matter with his parents. His mother knew the exact reason but chose to stay mum. Time passed, things became bad to worse.
Finally I got to know the exact reason behind my fate. The reason was, he was lovingly involved with a girl but kept cheating on her while he used to travel abroad. She, on discovering this refused to marry him and just to show her down he married me. And now he considers this marriage as a mistake, so he wants a divorce. During all this time he was not only in touch with ex- girlfriend but also was involved with his female colleagues in a wrong way. I found all these details and pictures from his cell phone. So I was sure. Marriages may be mistake for men but can’t be for an Indian girl who weaves all her dreams around that one special person in her life. Same was true for me, and I started my struggle to bring him back to my life, making him realize meaning and purpose of marriage. But all my pain got wasted when I came to know that he is in living relation with his colleague who was a US citizen and they are planning wedding. After much talks and meeting with his family I finally came back to my parents place as they saw no hope. He had already left me saying I am not going to return India. US citizenship was the main reason behind his action.
After much contemplation, we finally decided to sort out the matter on mutual basis. I got divorced and another battle set in. The battle was to resettle my life, my dreams. I lost everything. I had to quit my job for the third time again because of him, lost those people whom I considered my family by now, my relations, my home. At this point of my time my family stood firm with me giving strength and dignity. Again looking for a fresh start, I joined in a new school nearer to my parents place. It was a difficult phase emotionally as memories kept striking back and there was societal pressure. I started living with it and moved on. I prayed to Baba. I used to visit His temple every Thursday, did Saptah Parayan. But at times life looked quite meaningless to me. That time only my mother could gather me and affirm me of a brighter future. I often used to ask Baba what wrong I did to face all this. I met this man on a Thursday, wedding got fixed on a Thursday, got engaged on a Thursday, so I was taking everything as Your blessing, so why did You do this to me. I think only my past karmas in previous births have answer to this. I even got divorced on a Thursday. Sai Baba freed me from my karmas in this ordeal.
Time passed, and Baba appeared in my dream, gave me 9 coins and everything changed slowly for better. I also visited Shirdi prayed for His blessings. I got job back in my old school, looking at my calibre the principal offered me higher classes and then I got promoted. With Baba’s blessings I met the right person, with whom I am married now and staying happily. He is the right one for me who really understands and makes me feel special always. So, practically whatever I had lost or was taken away by Baba was given back to me in a better way. I am really, really thankful to my Sainath for His gracious blessings on me. I pray to Him that no other girl should be made to suffer. Sai Ram bless all girls with a good and nice husband as I have. I definitely go by Sai Baba’s words that He takes care of you and protects you if you ask for help. Friends! hold onto Him, no matter what He will truly take you to your right place. Be thankful to Him and have firm faith, that’s all Sai Ram wants from you. Om Sai Ram. Om Sai Ram. Om Sai Ram.
