Blessed Devotee who Experienced Baba’s Miracle before 1918
LOST & FOUND
M.R.Tagare worked as a doctor for Sakarwadi sugar mills near Shirdi. In 1914, he wished to encash his war-bonds of Rs.2500/-. Thus, he proceeded to Kopargaon Post-office in a bullock-cart. He had a bag containing the war-bonds, kept at his side. Enroute, he was busy chatting with a fellow passenger. To his utter dismay, he noticed that there was no bag beside him. Thinking that it must have slipped and fallen on the way, he stopped the cart and went in search of it. He trudged back for about a mile or two, searching diligently for it. But, alas, the bag wasn’t to be found. Disappointed and remorseful about this, he went to Kopargaon as he had to visit a sick friend. That night he couldn’t sleep and tossed and turned, thinking about the loss. At midnight, he got out of bed and went and sat near Baba’s photograph, praying for help. When he heard a voice saying, “Cease worrying.” The voice reassured him and he fell asleep.
Next morning, he made the ‘house call’ to his friend who lived in a village nearby. He examined the friend and prescribed the necessary medicine and sat a while chatting. He mentioned to his friend about the loss of his bag, enroute. A little girl, standing nearby, ran and brought a bag, saying, “Is this the bag? It was found on the roadside yesterday.” Thrilled, the doctor took his bag and upon examining the contents, found that the war-bonds were intact.
He mentally thanked Baba for His help.
