After Shrimati Durga Mai's son took his B.A. exam, he was afraid of having failed and seemed depressed.

His mother came to Kainchi, and telling Baba of the situation, she asked whether her son would pass the exam or not.

Baba at once said, "Fail-Pass," and smiled.

All the devotees present laughed. Then he said, "He will pass and get a job in a bank."

The boy's name was published in the pass list, and later he got a job in a bank.


Three Sons

In 1968 Rajinder Anand came to Kainchi with her mother for Baba's darshan.

As soon as Baba saw her, he said to her mother, "Get the marriage of your daughter arranged." He gave Rajinder two rupees and sent them away.

They came out of the ashram, got on a bus for Haldwani, and sat down. When the conductor came to give them tickets, they found that they were two rupees short of the fare. They paid with the money that Baba had given to Rajinder.

While they had accepted the money from Baba very reluctantly, they came to understand that his purpose in giving it was to save them from that embarrasing situation.


Whereabouts of a Missing Person

In 1932, Jagdev Singh came to see Baba with a subordinate Sikh officer. Speaking about Baba's greatness, Jagdev Singh told the officer that Baba would answer his question correctly even if he did not ask it.

The sikh officer wanted to ask something in particular about his friend Gainda Singh, whose son had disappeared in grief after the death of his wife, but he did not say anything to Baba.

Looking at him, Baba said, "You want to ask about Gainda Singh's son who has run away from home. The boy has been asking the priest in the gurdwara(Sikh place of worship) at Amritsar to take him as a disciple. His wife has died and his mother is alive. The priest is not inclined to make him a disciple without his mother's permission."


Ordinary Problems

One day I was irritated by an itch on my head. Although I did not have lice in my hair, I suspected them to be the cause.

I asked Dwarkanath, who was standing nearby to look, but he did not find any.

At that very moment Maharaj sent for me.

I bowed before him and sat on the floor by his takhat. Without saying anything, he patted me on the head and rubbed it for a while.

I got much relief from it.

Both of us were silent, no one uttered a single  word.


Two More Children

In 1971, my wife's health deteriorated gradually until one day her condition became serious. I was worried about her and went to the ashram to tell Baba of my concern. The sun was setting, and Maharaj was sitting alone in his kuti, facing the window. I bowed to him from outside the window, went into his room, and sat facing his back on the floor by his takhat.

Some moments passed in silence. Then Baba suddenly turned around and showing two raised fingers, said, "Two more children are yet to be born."

He then became serious and sat quietly facing the window.

In the mental state I was in, at that time, I could not understand him. My wife was at death's door, and Baba was saying two more children were to be born. It came to my mind that my wife would not die if two more children were still to be born. Surely she would escape death. I felt a little more relaxed. I offered pranaam to Baba and went back home.

Then I began to think that my wife was aging and that if she was going to give birth to more babies, she would not be able to withstand the physical strain.
