Baba Saved the Family of Shri Raghunath Babu Rao Sandbhor Gondeswala of Poona
He was Baba’s devotee from 10 years age. Once Panshet and Khadakvasla dams in Mula river were broken and water flown furiously and filled Poona. As usual he has gone to his office in Khadak. He came to know of the floods in ths city. He worried about his children aged 3, 6, 9 years and about his wife who were alone in his house. As the water in the river did not lessen he was not able to go to his house upto 7-30 P.M. Afterwards he has gone to his house.
He saw his house was with full of water. He saw Baba’s photo was drenched with water up to his leg, but was not spoiled like other articles. On enquiry he was told by the adjacent house owners that his wife and children were safely gone to the house of Shri Barakada (His son-in-law). His daughter on knowing that his house may be flooded with water and her father also would not be in his house as he might have gone to his office, came in time and taken all his children and his wife to her house. All were saved by Baba’s grace.
Surrender Shri Sai Completely ! Stupendous Delectation and Deliverance be there!!
