Sai Sister Krunal has returned from Shirdi and wishes to inform how the prayers reached Shirdi and details of her trip. Here I am forwarding her mail.
Om Sai Ram
I have just returned from Shirdi this morning. Please inform everyone that i have prayed for everyone who mailed me. Everyone's prayers was kept by me at Dwarkamai at the time of Shej Arti.
I am going to write my trip in detail. Please don't get bored.
My journey started from Ahmedabad around 10.45 am at Friday and we were 18 people from family and we hired one mini bus. Everyone was so eager to meet Baba. We had also planned to go to Nashik, Trambakeshwar, Shani Signa and Saputara.
As monday was Mahashivratri. We decided to visit Trambakeshwar early on Saturday. We visited Nashik and Trambakeshwar on Saturday. The time went on. The driver was driving since Friday night. It was 8.30pm on Satuday in Trambakeshwar and he got very sleepy and told us to stay overnight at the place. But everyone was very keen to reach Shirdi, he told us that ,"I am trying to reach but if I feel that I cannot drive. We will stop there only". Everyone agreed. At that time I felt we would not reach Shirdi in night. I prayed Baba, "Please Baba I want to come this night" and can you believe when driver started bus it was drove continously and did not even demand a cup of tea!!! We reached shirdi safelly.
Then in the morning everyone were every tired and we woke up around 8 am. I wore my new white clothes. I was sad because i wanted to wear them in Kakad Arti. We were in queue at 10 am. It was every long wait. We attended Madhyahan Arti, standing in front of TV monitor while standing in queue. Our turn came around at 2pm in afternoon. I saw Baba's Murti and felt very thankful for calling me.
By that time i told Baba to listen to everyone's prayer whosoever had sent their wishes to me. Also offered laddu which we took from our home specially for prasad. Then we went to Shanidev at 6 pm and retured to Shirdi at around 10pm.
After taking dinner i went in Dwarkamai. As i went there and was sitting Shej Arti started. It was very blissful to attend both Artis. But my wish was to attend Kakad arti with my new white dress. I was regreting that i missed that chance. At around 11.45 pm i took bath and wore by orange dress and went in queue at 12.30 midnight. At 3.40 am we were taken to hall. At 4 am Bhupali began. What i saw Baba was wearing orange and yellow coloured clothes. I felt so happy and blessed. I was sitting was exactly in front of Baba. I forgot all my grief. Only one thing that fascinated me that i got darshan by standing very close to Baba. Then i went to Dwarkamai, Chavdi, Nanavali's tomb and Abdulbaba's cottage. I also went to Laxmibai Shinde's place, saw nine coins & place where baba used to eat at Laxmibai's home. Then went to musieum, Gurusthan and Lendibaug where lotus were beautifully planted. I also had Mukhdarshan.
When I went for Udi, packet giver was opening new lot and he gave me two packets. I also bought Sai Satcharitra from there. In short I had very great feeling to go there. But was very sad to leave Shirdi. I also prayed Baba to fulfill my wish and call me again as soon as possible.
