The Sai Baba Of Shirdhi who is considered to be the last walking God on earth and worshiped by billions around the globe always believed in simplicity and had no greed for any material gains but instead had only one objective in mind and that was service to the poor and needy and make them self sufficed by all means. For Sai Baba Guru is God and the one who surrenders to his or her Guru in totality is considered the true disciple who can ultimately reap the real fruits of the Guru’s blessings.The Guru will take care of such disciples, protect them and finally lead them to salvation. It should be complete and total surrender on the Guru’s feet with special emphasis on “total” and any doubt or mental reservation on the part of the disciple will not only be unproductive but will also render him as a non- achiever. Sai Baba who reigned as a spiritual leader, the greatest saints of all times finally became God who walked on earth by his infinite miracles for the welfare of the hapless, poor and needy including the lepers who not only became economically self reliant and got cured from the dreaded diseases but also achieved salvation by His grace and ever lasting divinity.

I honestly consider my good luck and feel it my proud privilege for having been able to compile articles on Sai Baba, the real incarnation of Lord Shiva and Vishnu Who not only provide me special potential to do so but also gives enough knowledge to be able to pen my inner feelings about Baba. Baba was and is so great, omnipresent and omniscient that storehouse of knowledge and senior journalist like Rangaswamy Parthasarthy has also written lot about HIM and shed special light on Baba’s karmas for the welfare and upliftment of the poorest sections of the society during His lifetime.Lot and lot has been written about Baba and His miraculous feats for the last hundred years which has not noly benefited billions of His ardent devotees world over to follow His most precious sermons and religious discourses and imbibe them within themselves for attaining purity of mind, heart and soul but Baba’s blessing and divinity has also given complete BLISS to them who pray in veneration at HIS pious feet in total surrender. Let’s therefore know about Baba’s actual existence as a HUMAN and his various feats and miracles during his lifetime in Shridhi where  he came as a fakir through a marriage party(Baraat), was teased by children and frowned upon by sceptically villagers initially and later on remained to reign as a spiritual leader thus finally becoming the most sought after and adoring spiritual leader of all times.
It is said that Sai Baba was five feet six inches tall, neither stout nor lean. His complexion was Golden yellow, his eyes bluish, which shone bright mysteriously in darkness. Indeed His eyes were the object of wonder to the devotees. His nostrils were prominent. At the time when Sai Shradhanandji, who has given the above description of Baba in the book titled, God Who Walked On Earth- The Life and Times of Shridhi Sai Baba,authered by Mr. Rangachari, Sai Baba had some of His teeth missing and the rest were not pure white, rather pale.He never brushed His teeth but only rinsed His mouth with a little water every morning. He did not drink tea but did not ask His devotees to abstain from them. He never disclosed anyone how and when He got into the habit of smoking a pipe. He always used the same clay pipe although devotees often offered Him many pipes which he did not use but stocked them in the hollow portion of the Masjid Wall.
The piece of cloth tied around His head called Kafni was very rarely changed and never washed. Whenever Sai Baba decided to change His Kafni, He sent for the local tailor and said, Get me a Kafni,. When it was given to Him He always paid the tailor more than its worth. Left to Himself Baba spoke very little. He always preferred to be a silent spectator than to be talkative. He was more at the receiving end, always chanting God’s name within Himself. Baba usually remained calm and quite and spoke only when absolutely necessary. He never laughed loudly but smiled quietly. Whenever a devotee approached to Him for Darshan, He glanced at him. Sometimes He did not even do that. He adored children very much and whenever got the opportunity, played with them merrily. He never sat leaning against the wall in the mosque. Even when he sat with His legs outstretched, He always sat a few feet away from the wall. He never slept during the day and seldom visited any temple in Shridhi during his lifetime, may be because since He Himself was the God in Himself, the real an true incarnation of Lord Shiva,Rama, and Vishnu.
Sai Baba used to usually get His head shaved. Marthand son of Mhalsapati said that on certain occassions Baba sent for a barber, Balanari and had His head shaved completely. After the haircut Baba used to put His hand into His pocket and pay the barber whatever came to his hands. But it was always much in excess of the normal payment for a shave. Baba maintained a small beard. He had a wide forehead and always wore a plain Kafni.
The clay pipe was often renewed by His devotees who used to encircle Him whenever the pipe smoking session was in process by passing the rustic pipe to each other one by one. Baba never had any reservation of sharing the pipe though it was also smoked by one of the lepers’.In one of the notings in his diary by his devotee Kharparde, it is revealed thus,” Today I have shampooed the legs of Sai Baba. The softness of His limbs is wonderful. This example shows how privileged His devotees felt by washing his legs”.
Similarly a woman devotee of Baba has also recorded her emotions and impressions about Baba’s personality,:” There was such power and penetration in His glance that none could continue to look into His eyes.One felt that Sai Baba was reading Him or her mind through and through. Soon one lowered one’s eyes and bowed to Him. One felt that He was not only in one’s heart but in every atom of one’s body. A few words or a gesture would reveal that Baba knew all about everything else. There was nothing else to do for one except to submit trustfully and to surrender to Him in totality. And then He was to look after every minute detail and guide one safely through every turn and vicissitude of life. He was in real sense an Antaryami, call Him God or Satpurush or a walking humanitarian on earth born for the welfare and well being for the humanity around the globe.
Baba was so reserve from within and completely devoted to GOD that His words were always short, limited, pithy,deep, full of meaning and well balanced. He once said,” Though I have become a fakir, have no house, wife and though devoid of all the material gains, I have stayed at one place, the inevitable Maya teases me often. Though I forget myself, I cannot forget her. She envelopes me. This maya teases God Brahma and others as well then what to speak of a poor fakir like me? Hence according to Baba, those who take refuge in Lord will definitely be freed from the clutches of Maya with His grace.
An ardent devotee of Baba said : many saints went into a trance or samadhi, forgetting their body and they would display their supernatural powers and knowledge through such feats. But in case of Sai Baba He never had to go into a trance to achieve anything or reach any higher position. As Baba was always exercising a double consciousness every moment , the ego called Sai Baba and the antaryami, superseding all egos and finally resting in the Lord, the Parmatma. Baba was always in the state of exercising and manifesting the powers and features of both states of consciousness. The devotee says: When I sit in His presence I always forget my pain, nay,the body itself with all its mundane concerns and anxieties. Hours would pass and I would be in a blissful condition unconscious of the time passing. He was all in all for us and we could never think of His having limitations.
One notable instance of Baba’s miracle was when a portion of the mosque which was in a very dilapidated state, started to crumble with a loud noise while Baba and His devotees were taking the afternoon meals,”
On seeing this, Baba lifted his hands in anger and said loudly: SAHA, SAHAR,” meaning wait, wait. And suddenly the noise stopped and after the meal was finished and everyone came out comfortably, a big portion of the dilapidated mosque came down with a shattering noise and huge bang, exactly at the place where Baba and his devotees were having the lunch. Lateron the renovation work of mosque was taken and the dilapidated mosque repaired, forthwith.Similarly Baba used to used His intestines regularly by vomiting them out first and after adequately cleaning them would swallow them again. This miraculous feat is also something never witnessed anywhere in the world. Such supernatural power was He. There are hundreds and thousands of such instances that prove beyond doubt that Sai Baba of Shridhi was not an ordinary saint or a spiritual leader but a God in Him self who till today is providing overall bliss, all round progress and prosperity to billions and billions of his devotees around the globe with His blessings and divinity.OM SAI RAM.

I am shocked, astonished and rather surprised to know as to how a flamboyant saint in saffron giving so much to his countrymen through Yoga, famous nationally as well as internationally for mobilising millions n millions of people of India against the then ruling political dispensation, four years ago, called Congress Party, on the issue of corruption and bringing back black money stashed in foreign banks in few months is today extremely mum and ignorant on this pivotal issue and busy in minting thousands of crores through outsourcing half of the products, thereafter allegedly stamping them as Patanjali products and selling them gigantically all over the country and even abroad by advertising them spending hundreds of crores thus enticing people to buy these products.

Today, Patanjali has assumed global significance and reputation and there is hardly a single product that dosen’t bear the Patanjali brand name. Baba Ramdev who few years ago along with his partner Balkishan against whom cases of fake passport etc were registered during the previous Congress regime travelled on bicycle and had few thousand Rupees as bank balance are today the richest businessmen with a worth of more than 50 thousand crores travelling in expensive airconditioned cars. It’s an irony: Baba Ramdev’s basic agenda and his public pledges and commitments of bringing back black money stashed abroad after his government comes to power at the centre have been forgotton, all commitments betrayed and people of the country befooled.

There are news items of Patanjali allegedly seeking favours and political patronage from the current political dispensation in power if not directly then indirectly. His several protest demonstrations right from Jantar Mantar to Ramleela ground to various parts of the country during the Congress regime at the centre against black money stashed abroad and corruption blaming the then party in power n assuring the people of doing the needful if Modiji climbs on the political saddle have taken the back seat and not a single word or statement is heard from Baba Ram Dev’s mouth, now, the same saffron clad Baba who from Ram leela ground during crusader against corruption icon Anna Hazare’s rally skipped clandestinely in the form of a woman wearing the female clothing/ attire and prior to his escape publicly claimed of fulfilling his bring black money back to India from banks abroad not once but repeatedly. Ironically, the same Baba is now busy in propaging his products through highly expensive advertisements branding himself as an iconic personality, appearing on TV reality shows, hob nobbing with the political highups, addressing prestigious India Today Media conclaves addressing the rich, elite, affluents and the top corporates of the country to the utter dismay, surprise and shock of one and all.

What a dramatic and meterioric rise in just two decades, from a Bhoosa carrying saint on bycycle to a Patanjali corporate, worth thousands of crores being counted amongst the top few rich of the country. But the people of the country are still questioning: What has happened to his repeated public commitment of bringing back, the black money worth 22 lakh crores stashed in foreign banks, about which he used to talk and publicly pledge so much during rallies and mass political campaigns in 2013 drawing crowds and support for BJP. Propagation of Yoga and awaring people nationally by baba Ramdev is definitely worth praising but the way he has given up his mission of bringing back black money stashed abroad which used to be his single point agenda four years ago has given an unambiguous impression that now he has fully compromised with the powers that be and deflected from the targetted goal that ultimately gave him so much of name,fame, wealth and physical comforts. Today he is more a celebrity of reality shows than a saint with a mission to change the society upside down as a crusader against corruption Anna Hazare. What’s your take friends?

THE INTERFERING ONE:

Relatives are kind of people we are always afraid to meet. Relatives of Indian families have a big problem of interfering their nose in every matter whatever the reason is they have to become MILKHA SINGH of every family…  they  be like  “KAISE LADKO SE BATE KARTI HAI API BETI” “MERI CHINKY TO PURA DIN GHARME REHTI HAI” . THEY CAN’T cook up their own food until they properly interfere in every matter.

THE “CLOSE” AUNT WE HAVE NEVER MET:

These are the kind of relatives whom we have never heard about! Infact we have never met to them in our entire life, and suddenly miracle happens in our life and these relatives come and start explaining their relation to us. They be like  “BETA MUJHE NAHI PEHCHANA”? “KITNA CHOTA SA THA JAB TUMHE DEKHA THA” “MAI TUMHARE PAPA KE BEHEN KI SANS KI CHACHI KI BETI”. Biggest trouble in our life is attending these kind of relatives!!B612_20161124_225136

THE COMPARISING ONE:

Well these are the kind of dangerous relatives one could ever have!! They act like that they are the only RD SHARMA in this world who could give better proofs and theorem’s. They  never miss a chance of comparing us with their kids! Some of the famous dialogues by them are

“MERE BETE K TO 95% AE THE BABLU ITNA PEECHE KAISE RHGYA”  “ARE APNE TO ABHI SE PHONE DILAKE BACHE KO BIGAD DIYA MERE BUNTY NE TO 12 KI BAD PHONE LIA THA”

THE  SHADI KARADO ONE’s:

They have an eye sight problem with themselves actually our age seems to be double to them than what we actually are!! They think us as if we are lying on our death bead and still unmarried!! They are more concerned for our marriage than our parents.

“BETA KITNI BADI HOGYI HO SHADI KYU NAHI KAR LETI” “ARE MAI LEKE AUNGI TERELIE EK ACHA SA LADKA”IMG-20170201-WA0062

THE SANSARI ONE’s

Their pet dialogue – “UTHO UTHO AJ SAB MANDIR JAEGE”

For them praying a best solution to every problem, the can get rid of them easily by consuting to a baba. They can give just a single solution and that is “ BHABHI HAWAN KARWALO” sab thik hojaega!!B612_20161113_131547

RELATIVES ARE EQUAL TO FREEKA GYAN BATNA ! ALL OFF YOU MUST HAVE THESE KIND OF RELATIVES IN YOUR FAMILY AND YOU COULD RELATE TO THIS EASILY!!
