SECURITY OF THE BOY, KHARPARDE LIFE

SECURITY OF THE BOY, KHARPARDE LIFE

Dadasaheb Kharparde was one of the trusted devotees of Sai Baba. He used to come to Shirdi along with his wife and son to see Sai Baba. Once, plague broke out in Shirdi. In those days, Kharparde along with his family was also staying at Shirdi. His son also fell a prey to plague. He suffered from high fever. Besides this, some tumours also came up on his skin. Seeing her son suffering badly, Kharparde's wife began to compel her son to go to the city for his treatment.

But Kharparde said to his wife, "Sai Baba is an incarnation of God. We are in his shelter. You need not worry. Nothing wrong will happen to our son. Sai Baba never lets any misfortune come in his devotee's life. By his grace, our son will recover very soon.

Kharparde's wife said to him, "I agree with you and understand Sai Baba's miraculous glory. But, I cannot see my son pining so piteously. We must show him to a very good doctor. So, you should hurry up to carry our son to the city."

Kharparde failed to convince his wife. Then, he went to Sai Baba and told the whole matter to him.

"It is yet over-cast. You may go after the clearance of clouds in the sky," said Sai Baba. Saying so, Sai kept mum.

Kharparde and his wife could not understand Sai Baba's clue. So, they again sought Sai Baba's permission to leave for the city. Sai Baba took off his ascetics garment or 'kafani'. When Kharparde and his wife saw the same type of tumours on Sai's body, as they had seen on their son's body, they were spell-bound by Sai Baba's miracle. They understand it very well that Sai Baba had taken their trouble on his body.

 

Kharparde's wife fell at Sai Baba's holy feet. She wept and apologised for her folly. "Now, we need not go anywhere, leaving your shelter," she said. Sai Baba, an embodiment of mercy, said smilingly, "Sai will lay down his life before any calamity occurs to his devotees. So, be fearless."
