I will settle him.

Here more details are added on Narke's association with Shri Sai Baba.In last post we read how Narke was devoid by Baba for kupnis.In the first post it was mentioned how Narke travelled far for his job but there was no stability in one place.Here the post is related to Narke's job stability....

Narke's relatives were asking what will happen of him seeing that he had such unsettled course of life .Narke would go long distant so his mother also wished and prayed to Baba for him to settle near home or Shirdi .Baba answered and told them
"I will settle him at Poona”

Same time Narke got many job offers and each time he would go to Baba ,relying on his foresight and all seeing wisdom to guide he would go .Baba's choice was very strange at times.When once Narke went to ask baba about the choice between Calcutta and Burma Baba chose Burma ( distance more than Calcutta).He always would say "Go to Burma and Poona or go to such and such a place and Poona" adding Poona every time he made the selection.

Once In 1916 he had to choose between an offer from Banares of a professorship and a prospecting job at Burma. Baba told him "Go to Burma and Poona".Narke always laughed within himself at the addition of Poona as he was a Mining Engineer and Poona held no prospects for him.

It was in 1917 that the announcement was made that a Professor of Geology for the College of Engineering at Poona was wanted. He asked Baba if he should apply for the post. He said "yes' and went to Poona to see all people concerned. It was a tough work, as the applicants for the post were many and were supported by various influential persons.

After Narke left Shirdi. Baba inquired of the men there" Where is Narke gone?" They told him "
He has gone to Poona, to try for the appointment" "Allah will bless" was Baba's remark.

He then asked whether Narke had any children and was informed that several were born but none survived (they died after a very short life). "Allah will bless" was again his remark..He secured the appointment in 1918 and was made permanent in 1919 in Pune; and children born since then were not short lived. Four sons he had secured by Baba's grace.In this way Babas foresightedness came true and Narke's life gained stability.

What a wonderful leela of Baba!

It is very difficult to understand Baba most of the times. He chooses things for us that may seem strange to us but they do have some long term benefit for us.

I pray that Baba settles me as well...and every other devotee.

Jai Shri Sai Ram,

About Author.

I feel I am like a river, having my own course, stream and flow but the final destiny is to be one with the boundless ocean of my Sathguru Shirdi Sai Baba.

Amidst all the worldly rituals I am performing,I do not dare to loose sight of my Sainath. He is the sole driving force, the guide and the Supreme master.

The strings of my life are in his hand,I am just a puppet at His Holy Feet.
