COME AND GO AT SAPS BID

There is a saying in Shirdi that the devotees come to Shirdi or depart from there at Sai Baba's will. Those who violate Sai Baba's dictates, invite misfortunes for them.

Once it so happened, that an Englishman, called Wilson Grooze, came to Shirdi with Nanasaheb Chandorkar. Wilson had heard a lot about Sai's miracles. So, he persisted with Nanasaheb to take him to Shirdi. Nanasaheb told him that he could see Sai Baba only if Sai's desire prevailed. Wilson was taken to Shirdi by Nanasaheb Chandorkar. But when he was climbing the steps of Dwarkamai Mosque, he slipped down again and again. In the end, he was compelled by some unseen power to stay in the courtyard and have a sight of Sai Baba from there.

Wilson took it as his insult and hurled abuses at Sai Baba. He also got ready to return from there. On the other hand, Sai Baba asked Nanasaheb to prevent Wilson from leaving the mosque lest some fatal incident should happen to him. Nanasaheb passed on Sai Baba's message to Wilson. But he turned a deaf ear and loading his luggage in a tonga, he left Shirdi.

Hardly had Wilson's tonga covered a small distance that the horses began to run fast in fright. As a result of this, the tonga was turned upside down and Wilson was dragged for a long distance. Wilson was so badly injured that he was hospitalized and kept confined for a long time.

 

After some time, Wilson recovered and paid a visit to Shirdi out of great reverence. He bowed before Sai Baba and apologized for his fault.
