Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade: When Sai Baba Prepared Some Medicine
December 10, 1911
In the morning before I finished my prayer Dattatraya Chitnis, Solicitor of Bombay, came. He was a freshman when I was a fellow in the college. So he is an old, old friend. He naturally sat talking of old days and so on.
As usual I saw Sai Maharaj as he went out and later again when he returned and sat in his usual place. We all returned after Arti, The breakfast was a bit late and after it I sat talking with Upasani, later on with Mr. Nanasaheb Chandorkar.
He is the chief, if not the oldest disciple of Sai Maharaj. He is a very pleasant man, gave me his history as to how he came into contact with Sai Maharaj and made his progress. He wished to tell me the instructions he received but people gathered, and the thing could not be disclosed to the view of all.
I made two attempts to see Sai Maharaj in the afternoon, but he was not in the mood to see anybody. I saw him in the evening near the Chawdi and had a long talk with Sathe Saheb, Chitnis and others. There is one Gokhale come from Narsoba's Wadi.
He says he was directed to see Narayan Maharaj of Kedgaum and Sai Maharaj. He sings very nicely and at night I got him to sing a few Bhajans. Mr. Nanasaheb Chandorkar returned to Thana today. Balasaheb Bhate, who got a son a few days ago, lost him this evening. This was very sad. Sai Maharaj this afternoon prepared some medicine which he took.
