    It was the year 1989.A visibly upset lady of the house went about her chores in routine fashion.Strange occurences and eerie happenings had robbed the family of peace.The small family of four spent sleepless nights and waited for answers.The parents were worried as the young son just out of school started exhibiting abnormal behaviour.His erratic behaviour was a cause for concern and the Iyer family was clueless.

    The family members were ardent Shirdi Sai devotees.On one particular occasion a family friend presented a photograph of Sri Sathya Sai Baba.Oblivious of what was in store for the family,the young lad shifted the photograph from the living room to the puja altar.A seemingly innocent act was the act of a divine will......
    The young boy had appeared for his plus two exams and results were awaited.He wished to pursue a career in commerce and the parents were anxious too.Admission to a reputed college meant high cut offs and the parents were worried.

    Miracles do happen and they were waiting to happen.The oil lamps lit on their own.Sugar candies lay strewn all around the house.On some days kumkum and haldi lay scattered.Honey started to flow from the photograph...and the lady of the house had to place a container below it.Perfumed honey was collected every day and distributed amongst devotees.Devotees flocked from near and far on hearing of these miracles but the family was still in a state of shock...unable to come to terms with such incidents.It was wierd but true.The photo would be wiped clean everyday and the miracles continued unabated.The picture was smeared with Vibhuti on some days and sometimes engulfed in a mountain of the sacred ash.

    It was a Thursday.The son went out on an errand......and returned smeared in turmeric.The young boy had an amazing tale to tell.He had encountered the saint in person who had blessed him and vanished.

    Months later the lad joined Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning and the rest is History.The family had come to believe that this saint was indeed an incarnation of Shirdi Sai & the questions were answered.

    The lad is a successful man today & owes each step of success to the great saint who left for heavenly abode today but continues to be in our midst as a guiding force.....The young man who spent three years in the lap of the DIVINE MOTHER is my dearest brother and he is inconsolable today........
