Dear readers,
Happy Thursday and happy Baba's day to all .

Baba when conversed with Mhalsapathy he would tell him about the future of Shirdi. Baba would say "Aree Bhagat this little village will become a famous place of pilgrimage .Huge palatial buildings will come up. Pilgrims will flock to this place from far and wide .Highly placed officials and famous people will visit Shirdi.There will be much pomp and show ,Bhagat .In fact people will be crawling like ants”.

While I am writing this I have goose bumps all over and a thrilled feeling how Baba indicated all this years back and we are reading this and witnessing it now .We may have not witnessed what Baba said at that time to Mhalsapati ,but we are witnessing what He had said now(at present time).

Mentioning about future I also recollect once to Shama and Tarkhad Baba spoke of the future of Shirdi and said that "Golden Days are ahead of us." How can witness all this today.No wonder such high end facility are coming up for Sai devotees .Few days back I had posted about Sai Golden kalash ,Prasadalaya,Sai in Gold ,Gold sheets ,SaiNagar Railway station and its video, commencing of train to Shirdi and now the plans goes one step ahead for Airport,Sai Ashram ,and Super facility Hospital .
Here is a cut out details from news paper attached below for devotee's information . Jai Sai Ram .
