Baba cures both physical and mental afflictions


Baba cures both physical and mental afflictions.

With the permission of Shirdi Sai Baba I begin with my Sai Baba experience. Whenever my family and I faced any problem, Sai Baba has rescued us. A few years back I was immersed in my work and I was totally self centered - thought only about my success, bank balance, etc. and I did not socialise nor did any social work. At that I got a call from Sai Baba to visit Shirdi, may be it was a sign for me to mend my ways.

On October 5, 2003 we reached Shirdi. My wife was suffering from physical discomfort; but I did not pay attention to her. We reached Kopergaon, which is on the way to Shirdi. We took an auto rickshaw there, after fixing the fare charge of Rs. 60/- . But as soon as we reached Shirdi, the rickshaw driver started asking for Rs. 80/-. I got angry with his demand and told him that ‘I would report this matter to the police’. On this the rickshaw driver replied that ‘You keep your money with you and I will think that I gave the money to a beggar
of Baba.’

This was our first visit and we were doing everything in haste. As a result of this we forgot to climb the three steps of the Masjid. But, we realized that without Baba’s permission no one can climb the steps. And those who do, their wishes are fulfilled by Baba.

After coming back from Shirdi I immersed myself in work. My wife’s ill health was getting worse with each passing day; yet, I couldn’t pay attention to her. On December 4, 2003, when my wife called up and cried over the phone, I hurriedly went home. I and my landlord took my wife to Wockhart hospital, where Dr. Chandrashekhar did Colonoscopy and Biopsy and told us to do CT scan immediately; because he suspected cancer. My family’s difficult times had begun. Dr. Chandrashekhar advised us to visit Dr. Nandkumar from Malaya Hospital. I admitted my wife to Malaya Hospital on 9 and she was operated. From that day I started chanting ‘Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai...’. After the operation we had to do a course in Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. But, in Bengaluru, since, I did not have friends and relatives I started feeling lonely and helpless; so I decided to do the rest of the treatment in Kolkata. We sold off all our things for handful of rupees and went
to Kolkata.

In Kolkata we found out that Radiotherapy was not so good, as it was in Bengaluru. Again we decided to go to Bengaluru to Malaya Hospital and do the Chemotherapy. In a few days we realized our condition was pitiable. At that time I recalled the words of the rickshaw driver and it saddened and filled me with remorse. From that day we started chanting ‘Sai... Sai...’ day and night.

Dr. Nandkumar Jairam told us to meet Dr. Kilara for Chemotherapy. When we met Dr. Kilara, he told that this treatment has no guarantee of curing the tumour, which was not treated even after operation. The doctor persistently gave us no hope and said only a miracle can save her.

My wife got depressed and started crying and said that I don’t want to undergo the treatment. I told my wife that I believe in miracles. We have to fully submit ourselves at Sai Baba’s Feet and leave everything to Him. When all the roads close, Baba creates a new path.

When out of six cycles of Chemotherapy, three were completed then the blood test showed that the diseases had come down from 75.9 percent to 1.9. The doctor was taken aback by surprise; but was happy for us as this was rare. After the complete treatment when the CT scan was done, an astonishing thing happened, not a single cancer tumour was found! Even more astonishing was the fact; in any Chemotherapy hair loss, weight loss, and ill health are the side effects. With Sai Baba’s Grace my wife was exempted from these side effects.
Today my family - my wife, me and our daughter are ever present to Baba’s Kindness. I have also realized that one should serve the society in whatever way we can.
