In my childhood I used to make tiny models on Krishna Janmashtami. This year 2019 Feb-March I started getting these thoughts, why haven't I ever made anything such for my dear Baba yet? Then my ideas, thoughts started expanding. How about if I make the whole Shirdi in my house. As it's my deepest desire to reside in Shirdi till my last breath.. Every night my head used to burst with so many creative ideas and excitement and couldn't sleep. But I kept procrastinating, as I didn't want to rush and create anything shoddy but the best. Baba wanted me to make this Shirdi as alive as possible. Then as these thoughts kept growing stronger and stronger everyday and the desire to create, as usual Baba started to manifest. Through messages on my Whatsapp, FB accounts and encouraged me to start soon. For instance, never before I saw anyone putting up small Shirdi models in Whatsapp status. Very clearly Baba showing me rough idea how to make it. Interestingly lot of times, after getting up I check my phone and there is Baba's message or answer to my thoughts/doubts I have a night before, mostly through some good soul's message or post. Every night I kept thinking to start this model but somehow I wasn't able to start. Then one fine morning I got this message, "You have the ability to create,don't doubt yourself.. .." and like "Start now, there will never be the right time to start. As you go, tools will be provided... " It literally gave me goosebumps when I read "tools will be provided..". Then a night before Gurpurnima I saw Baba and Ganesha in my dream. Seeing Ganesha means green light.. OK start the work now😊. So then, Baba made me start the model exactly on Gurpurnima day this year. I bought a hard board 23 inches by 33 inches, Wrote Om Sai Ram with haldi and chandan on it and started with Dwarakamayee first. I usually worked on the model at nights. As it's very quiet and peaceful and the moon at night helps me with my creativity and imagination. I used to light a lamp in my temple, sit in front of Baba put on Sai Bhakti Radio on my phone and work on it till late night. Lot of times I felt Baba was watching me build this model and helping me. During the making, Baba literally did keep providing me tools, ideas etc. HE IS THE ULTIMATE DOER NOT ME😊🙏. THE CREDIT DEFINITELY GOES TO HIM🙇♂️.
For instance to make the water feature, I wanted the smallest water pump and not very expensive one. I struggled a bit for that. Then one fine day after checking with all the shops since a month, I entered one last shop. Before entering I was talking to Baba in my head, "now this is the last option Baba
