Breaking of oath
In the moth of June 2006 we were told that there might be a change of our shift timings. The present shift was good but the news shifts would be graveyard shifts. It would be difficult for my parents to be awake till late nights just because of me and I did not like it. I was angry with our deva that he was the one who showed me this job and now why is he changing my shift timings, when I was comfortable with the previous one. First I was angry with him but as usual I went to his feet later. I prayed to him that our shift timings should not change and something wrong should happen if they decided so. I took and oath of leaving potato till my wish fulfills. I was very careful and avoided potato, asking each and everyone whether a potato is mixed in the curry whenever I used to have my food. I thought, now I am so careful and how can he change my shift. It’s impossible; he has to keep my old timings. One evening my aunt brought samosas and starting distributing to every one in our house. Generally I don’t eat samosas. But I woke up from sleep and as soon as she asked me, I was feeling hungry and took the samosa and ate it, forgetting my vow. Days passed on I didn’t remember about that incident. All the days I was thinking that I was successful with my vow. But our sai wanted me to remember it and hence a flash appeared and all of the sudden I remembered about that incident. I did not fell disappointed but I felt that it was another miracle shown by our baba. This means if baba knows our wish would really succeed then he will encourage us. As in one of the chapters in SSC baba said “sitting in this masjid, I never speak untruth”. In my case he already knew that my shift timings were going to change. And I am sure there might be some good reason for that. Who knows, some one else might be in need of that shift timings. As I have told earlier if it really happens then baba shows us the confidence but if it won’t then we shouldn’t blame him. And as my vow failed, our shift timings also changed. om sai ram.
