Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade - Day 4
December 9, 1910
I and my son intended going away today. In the morning, after prayer when we went as usual to see Sai Maharaj, he asked my son if he intended going away and added that we may go away.
We thought the necessary permission had been granted and made ready to start. Baba packed all things and engaged a spring cart and another to carry our things, and in the afternoon went to formally see the Sai Maharaj before actually starting.
On seeing me Sai Maharaj said, "Do you really intend going?" I replied "I wish to go but not if you do not permit." He said, "Then you may go tomorrow or the day after. This is our house. The Wada is our house, and why need anybody be afraid while I am here? This is our house and you should look upon it as your own house".
I agreed to stay and countermanded all engagements for departure. We sat down talking. Sai Maharaj was in a very pleasant mood and said many plea-sant things but I am afraid I did not understand him.
