Shirdi Diary by Shri G.S.Khaparde - Part 34

1912 February 28 Wednesday

I attended the Kakad Arti & was on my return praying when Dhonde Baba arrived from Poona. He returned recently from Burmah and I sat talking with him about the health of my friend Tilak and the state of his mind. It is as good as it can be under the circumstances. He wishes me to return to my practice at the bar but that depends upon what Sayin Saheb orders. We held our Panchadasi class and Mr Balasaheb Bhate attended it. We saw Sayin Saheb go out & later on I went to the Masjid after he returned. He asked me if Jivamuni would pay. I could not make out what Jivamuni meant but replied that Jivamuni would if ordered. He said Jivamuni would not. He gave me a lot of fruits & sweets. The midday Arti passed off as usual. Today was Ekadasi & nobody except myself & Raghunath had a breakfast or the midday meal. Dhonde Baba also fasted. He returned to Poona about 4 P.M. with Bhau son of Dada Kelkar. We then continued our Panchadasi class & in the evening went to see Sayin Maharaj at his stroll. He was in a very pleased mood walked light, made jokes & so on. After the Wada Arti Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasbodh.

1912 February 29 Thursday

I prayed in the morning and held our usual Panchadasi class. While we were at it Sayin Baba passed through and we saw him near the Sathé Wada. He appeared very much tired. I saw him again after he returned and he appeared to be in a very placid mood. He said that Balasaheb Bhate was a Khatu, that his wife was a “Saliu ” i..e. weaver & that his son Babu was also a Sali. Sayin Saheb said further that Wassudeo Kaka, was a Rajput in his former birth and bore the name of Jaising, that he was fond of meat & that Sayin Saheb & others used to make him very angry by asking him if he wanted the head of a goat, that this Jaising had three sons who served in the army and a daughter who turned out bad, became the keep of a Barwar, bore children by him and died thus. The midday Arti passed off as usual except that Waman Tatya who came after it & wished to worship got a good harvest of hard words. After the midday meal I lay down for a while & then we continued our Panchadasi class till evening when we went to see Sayin Saheb at his stroll. After the wada Arti I went to the Masjid to attend the procession to Chavadhi & the Sheja Arti there. Sayin Saheb exhibited an angry mood, abused those that had got on to the roof of the Masjid for lighting lamps, and at the time when the procession started he threw his stick at Mrs Tai Jog the wife of Bapusaheb. At the Chavadhi I thought he would beat Bapusaheb Jog for he approached the latter held his hands and demanded why arti was done, but after a while he beat Bala Simpi with his stick and later on TrimbakRao whom he calls Maruti. Bala Simpi ran away but TrimbakRao received the blow standing and prostrated himself before Sayin Saheb. I think he received a full measure of favour and got ahead by at least a stage. Sayin Saheb was talking loudly when we returned. I sat talking with Balasaheb Bhate. Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasbodh.

1912 March 1 Friday

I attended the Kakad Arti &then after prayer held our Panchadasi class but both Bapusaheb Jog & Upasani delayed as they got themselves shaved & we could not actually begin until Sayin Baba went out & we saw him near the Sathe Wada. When we did actually begin we made progress. I went to Masjid about 11 A.m. and Sayin Baba seemed to be in a very good mood but looked very much tired. Trimbak Rao came very much near to abusing Fakir Baba for what appeared to me to be a very trifling matter. The midday arti passed off as usual. Sayin Baba remembered Mr Dixit, Nanasaheb Chandorkar & Sathe. After meals we continued our Panchadasi class & made good progress. We saw Sayin Baba at his evening stroll & at night there was Bhagavat & Dasabodha read by Bhishma. He also did the Bhajan and Bala Saheb Bhaté attended. A Teli living opposite to us died in the evening. His wife Sattrabai & daughter Gopi used to work as our domestic servants.
