While, once I (Kakasaheb Dixit) was in Shirdi, I received letter from my brother that Balu Kaka and Nanasaheb Karamvelkar’s wife were seriously ill. This matter was made known to Lord Sai Baba. On being asked about Balu Kaka’s future, Lord Baba said, “He will get cured soon.” When the case about Karamvelkar’s wife was made asked, Lord Baba exclaimed, “Hasn’t she come yet?” I told Him that she has not come to Shirdi and whether a message can be sent to call her here. Lord Baba replied in affirmative. After some time news came that Balu Kaka got cured completely and the lady (Nanasaheb Karamvelkar’s wife) had passed away.
Krishnaji Narayan alias Chhotu Bhaiyya working as a Magistrate at Harda had written a letter on February 11, 1924, which is as follows:
I suffered from a very peculiar type of disease since long and whenever I had food, it would come out by vomiting. Many physicians and ayurvedic specialists were consulted but to no effect. The problem still persisted giving me much trouble. My father’s friend Shri. Sadashiv Ramchandra Patvardhan sent me a good doctor from Nagpur with a request to start treatment for my ailment through him. The doctor was old. He prepared medicine and carried it to Harda. At first, he gave me three packets of the medicine. I partook one packet in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Due to these dosages of the above medicine, I started suffering from Diarrhea. I had to pass motions many times still it was 8 PM. I got so much weak so that I had no strength left to get up from the bed. Seeing my deteriorating condition, the doctor and my family members expressed a sense of fear. They went to pooja room and prayed for me. I was then given medicine to stop motion. Even then the motions did not stop till 11 PM. Then the doctor advised my father to stop every treatment for my disease and continued that only the grace of Sadguru Lord Sai Baba will help to cure me completely. After about 5-6 years I went to Shirdi for Lord Baba’s Darshan with my friend. Neither of us told Lord Baba about my suffering. Lord Baba did not talk about it as well. The following year I, with my brother Narayanrao and few of my friends again went to Shirdi on the occasion of Guru Purnima. We all went to Dwarkamai and sat near Lord Baba. Soon then Mausibai came and Lord Baba asked her, “Mausibai why so late?” She replied that she was suffering from continuous vomits and that’s why she was late. Lord Baba smiled and said, “You always eat raw food and hence this problem occurs.” Immediately Mausibai threw herself into the Feet of Lord Baba and requested Him to cure her. She was blessed within no time.
Lord Baba then kept silent for a moment and then pointing towards me said to Mausibai, “Even this person is suffering from the same kind of illness like you for quite a long time. Although he consulted many, he has not recovered.” Lord Baba then advised me to stop all medications and assured me that henceforth I am relieved from continuous vomits. It has been eight years now and the disease has not reoccurred. I took medicine for about 10-12 years but Lord Baba’s words removed the ailment from its root.
