Khushalchand of Rahata
“Baba loved Ganpat Kote Patil of Shirdi. He loved Chandrabhansheth Marwadi of Rahata equally. After the demise of this Sheth, Baba loved his nephew Khushalchand equally or perhaps more, and looked after his welfare, day and night. Sometimes in a bullock cart, at other times in a tonga, with intimate devotees Baba went to Rahata. People of that village would come out, with band and music and receive Baba at the gate of the village and prostrate before Him. Then He was taken into the village with great honour and ceremony. Khushalchand took Baba to his house, seated Him on a comfortable seat and gave Him a good meal. Then they talked freely and merrily for some time, after which Baba returned to Shirdi, giving delight and blessings to all.
Shirdi is midway and equi-distant from Rahata on one side (south) and Nimgaon on the other (north). Baba never went beyond these places during His life time. He never saw any train nor travelled by it. Still, He knew exactly the timings of arrivals and departures of all trains. Devotees who acted according to Baba’s instructions given at the time of taking His leave, fared well, while those who disregarded them suffered many a mishap and accident.”
