Dear Sai Baba Devotees,
I wish to share my experience on seeing one of the videos of “Aai” and how it impacted me in a profound way. As in every locality, we also had a group of roadside Romeos (street doggies) wandering here and there in our neighborhood. They played, scrounged and fought over food, barked, and also picked up fights with other dogs who ventured into their territory from other streets.
This was a common scene, and equally common was people’s attitude to these stray dogs – that of callousness and ignorance. Most people got annoyed by their barking and often hurled sticks and stones at them to make them shut up or to disperse them or drive them away.
I must confess that even I paid no attention to them as such.
My family worshipped Shirdi Sai Baba among other saints, and I heard people say Sai performs miracles for those who believe in Him. I used to worship Baba’s idol along with several others in our pooja room. That was the only connection between me and Sai Baba until I happened to watch the YouTube video of the ICU miracle, which led me to see videos of Aai Maa, and I downloaded the book Sai Baba and Aai and read it. I thus got to know more about Baba and Aai Maa’s pure devotion to Him.
