SHIRDI PROTECTION THROUGH FLOUR

SHIRDI PROTECTION THROUGH FLOUR                        

Once, cholera broke out at Shirdi. Many people died of this epidemic. But the village doctors were over-joyed, as they wanted to charge very high fees from the patients. People had to buy their medicines at the highest rates. However, the epidemic of cholera did not come under control.

Thinking cholera as an incurable disease, the rivals of Sai Baba alleged that the natural disasters, like the epidemic of cholera, came to Shirdi with the inauspicious arrival of Sai Baba. So, Sai should be cast away from Shirdi and thereafter the epidemic would also disappear. But every body turned a deaf ear to the allegation of Sai's rivals.

Sai Baba's heart melted at the miserable plight of the dying patients. He offered them 'Udi'-the holy ash from the burning flame in the Dwarakamai Mosque. The patients recovered immediately. But the number of patients were so large that Sai Baba's 'Udi' ran short. But Sai Baba made up his mind to drive out cholera from Shirdi.

 

It was Thursday. Sai Baba got up early and began to grind food-grains. After lunch, Sai Baba asked Shama to spray the sanctified flour all around Shirdi. Shama sprinkled the miraculous flour around the village and gradually, the cholera disappeared and the people of Shirdi heaved a sigh of relief by the grace of Sai Baba.
