Shirdi Diary by Shri G.S.Khaparde - Part 27

1912 February 8 Thursday

I got up for Kakad Arti, & after it began the routine of the day. Narayan Rao Bamangaonkar got permission to return. So he had some-things for delivery at Amravati from my wife, & actually left by a tonga. Before he star, Ganpatrao, the son of the Karthari of my relation Mulatik of Satara came with the customary presents of Sesamum for Tilsankrant. They consist of very artistically made things out of sugared sesamum. Balvant for the first time in these three weeks, ventured out as far as the Masjid & put his head on the feet of Sayin Maharaj. He has improved so far. Ganpatrao wishes my son Balvant to go with him to Satara for Ranga Panchami. I referred him to Sayin Saheb. The midday arti went off as usual except towards the end, when Sayinsaheb exhibited anger. We spent the afternoon as usual in Dixit reading Ramayan & I reading to myself Das Bodh. We held our Panchadasi class also in the morning. We saw Sayin Saheb at his evening stroll. One Mr Kulkarni has come here from Bombay. He has a laboratory there where he tests ores etc. He said he saw me at Surat in 1907. We sat talking about old things. At Bhishma had his Bhajan & Dixit read Ramayan.

1912 February 9 Friday

I got up as usual, prayed, and attended the Panchadasi class. During it We saw Sayin Maharaj go out. After finishing the class I went to the Masjid. Sayin Baba was in very good mood. The young boy Kishya whom we call Pisya came there as usual. On seeing him Sayin Saheb that Pisya saw a Rohilla in his previous birth, that he was a very good man, that he prayed long and came as guest to Sayin Saheb’s grand father. The latter had a sister who used to live separate. That Sayin Saheb was a young boy himself then & playfully suggested that the Rohilla should marry her. This was to be and she did eventually marry her. The Rohilla lived there with his wife for a long time and ultimately went away with her, no body knew where. He died and Sayin Saheb put him into the womb of his present mother. Pisya, he said, would by very fortunate and the protector of thousands. The Midday Arti passed off as usual. During it Sayinsaheb said something to Shivanand Shastri & made signs. The Shastri unfortunately did not catch their import. Sayin Saheb made signs to Bapusaheb Jog also. Mr Oke pleader of Thana is here. I asked him to remember me to Baba Gupte & other friends. In the afternoon there was Ramayan read by Mr Dixit as usual. Then we went to see Sayin Saheb go out for his stroll and in the evening attended the Sheja Arti after the Wada Arti. At night Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dixit read Ramayana.

1912 February 10 Saturday

I attended Kakad Arti in the morning. Ganpatrao obtained permission this morning to go to Satara with my son Balvant. Madhava Rao Deshpande was with them at the time. I, Bapusaheb Jog Upasani & Mrs L Kaulgi, had our Panchadasi class & after it I went to the Masjid. Sayin Baba was in a very pleasant mood and said that his body had been severed from his legs, that he can raise up the former but not the latter. He said he had a fight with the Teli, that when he was young he raised money for family purposes and agreed to serve the creditor to repay the debt, but he found he could not work, so he applied marking nut to his eyes & another irritant (Shar) to his body and became ill. He was laid up for a year, but as soon as he recovered, he worked night and day & paid off the debt.

He sat talking very pleasantly but towards the end of the mid-day Arti, began to exhibit signs of impatience. Mr Gadre pleader of Nassik is here. I met him in Dixit’s Wada & sat talking with him. I knew him before. Mr Dixit read Ramayan in the afternoon & at night. Bhishma had Bhajan in the evening. Ganpat Rao & my son Balvant went today to Amravati. From there they will proceed to Satara. We naturally miss them much.
