“Once, Kaka Mahajani went to Shirdi from Mumbai. He wanted to stay there for one week and enjoy the Gokul Ashtami festival. As soon as he took Baba’s darshan, Baba asked him, “When are you returning home?” He was rather surprised at this question, but he had to given an answer. He said that he would go home when He ordered him to do so. Then, Baba said, “Go tomorrow!”
Baba’s word was law and had to be obeyed. Kaka Mahajani, therefore, left Shirdi, immediately. When he went to his office in Mumbai, he found his employer anxiously waiting for him. His Munim, i.e., the manager, suddenly fell ill, hence Kaka’s presence was absolutely necessary. He had sent a letter to Kaka at Shirdi, which was redirected to him at Mumbai.”
“Now listen to another story. Once, Bhausaheb Dhumal was going to Niphad for a case. On the way he came to Shirdi, took Baba’s darshan and wanted to proceed to Niphad immediately. But, Baba did not premit him to do so. He made him stay at Shirdi, for a week or more.
In the meanwhile, the magistrate at Niphad suffered intensely from pain in his abdomen and the case was adjourned. Mr. Dhumal was then, allowed to go and attend to his case. It went on for some months and was tried by four magistrates. Ultimately, Mr. Dhumal won the case and his client was acquitted.”
“Mr. Nanasaheb Nimonkar, Watandar of Nomon and Honorary Magistrate, was staying at Shirdi with his wife. Mr. and Mrs. Nimonkar were spending most of their time in the Masjid with Baba and serving Him. It so happened, that their son fell ill at Belapur and the mother decided, with Baba’s consent, to go to Belapur and see her son and other relatives and stay there for a few days, but Mr. Nanasaheb asked her to return the next day.
The lady was in a fix and did not know what to do, but her God Sai came to her help. While leaving Shirdi she went to Baba, who was standing in front of Sathe’s wada with Mr. Nanasaheb and others, and prostrated at His Feet and asked His permission to go. Baba said to her,“Go, go quickly, be calm and unperturbed. Stay comfortably at Belapur for four days! See all your relatives and then return to Shirdi.” How opportune were Baba’s words! Mr. Nanasaheb’s proposal was overruled by Baba’s decree.”
