Dear friends..Om sai ram.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer in Jan 2009. In May 2009, she fell critically ill and was hospitalised. My father is an ardent devotee of baba and prayed to baba to help my mother recover so that we can all go to shirdi. But baba had other plans. My mother became critical and was in ICU. Doctors had given up and said that she would go any time. But she was hanging on, fighting it hard. Then suddenly one day, we got a message from a family friend who stay in Hyderabad that they would like to come over to chandigarh (where my parents stayed) to see my mother. They spent money to get tickets in tatkal and travelled all the way to see her and they got udi from shirdi. It was as if baba knew my mother couldnt go to shirdi, so he came to her instead. We applied the udi on her forehead and she passed away the same day. It was as if baba gave her mukti from her disease.
The same day in the morning (before my mother died) i had gone to baba's temple to pray and asked baba what will be the outcome of this torture. We knew she was dying slowly and was in so much pain. And at the same minute, my eyes saw a quotation on the wall "You will not get what you want. you will get what you need". And i got my answer.
Baba...where ever my mother is, please take care of her. I miss her a lot. Please keep her happy.
