“Now, let us turn to another sparrow (Baba’s word, meaning devotee). One lady in Burhanpore saw in her dream Sai Baba coming to her door and begging Khichadi (rice cooked with dal and salt) for His meals. On waking up she saw nobody at her door. However, she was pleased with the vision and told it to all, including her husband. He was employed in the postal department and when he was transferred to Akola, both husband and wife, who were devout persons decided to go to Shirdi.
Then on a suitable day they left for Shirdi and after visiting Gomati Tirth on the way, reached Shirdi and stayed there for two months. Every day they went to the Masjid, worshipped Baba and passed their time happily. The couple came to Shirdi to offer Khichadi as Naivaidya but for the first 14 days, somehow or other, it could not be offered. The lady did not like this delay or tardiness. Then on the 15th day she came at noon to the Masjid with her khichadi. There she found that Baba and others were already sitting for meals, and that the curtain was down. Nobody dared enter in when the curtain was down, but the lady could not wait. She lifted up the curtain and entered. Strange to say that Baba seemed that day hungry for khichadi and wanted that thing first, and when the lady came in with the dish, Baba was delighted, and began to eat morsel after morsel of khichadi. On seeing the earnestness of Baba in this respect, everybody was wonderstruck and those, who heard the story of khichadi, were convinced about His extraordinary love for His devotees.”
