12. SITA RAM JI’s FLIGHT TO BOMBAY
Sita Ram ji, a prime shishya of Guruji was working in American Express Bank at a senior post. He had an independent office and Guruji would visit him in the evenings, after his working hours.
Once, Sita Ram ji asked Guruji for permission to fly to Bombay for attending an urgent meeting. Guruji said, “Ok, let‘s leave together for the airport, after dropping you, I shall proceed to Gurgaon” On reaching the airport, Guruji said, “No situ, the Guru never drops the shishya. On the contrary, the shishya should drop the Guru.
Therefore, let’s go to Gurgaon, and you can come back and get your flight. After reaching Gurgaon, Guruji asked Sita Ramji to have a cup of tea and proceed to the airport. Since Sita Ramji was running short of time, he hurriedly had his tea and requested Guruji to tell someone to drop him off at the airport. Guruji asked him to go out and find someone. Sita Ramji came out of the Sthan and saw a man on a two wheeler, who had just arrived to have blessings from Guruji. Sita Ramji took him to Guruji and requested him to instruct the man to drop him off at the airport.
As the man left the room, Sita Ramji said, “Guruji, the flight is bound to have left before I shall make it to the airport since I am late……..
“Guruji said, “mera shishya jane wala hai, to flight ud kaise sakti hai uske bina ?”
( My shishya has to go, how is it possible for the air craft to take off without him ?)
The man dropped Sita Ram ji at the airport and as he approached the boarding pass counter he came to know that flight had actually not flown. The reason stated was that the captain was not satisfied, he wanted some checkups regarding the engine and the engineers were working on it. He was asked to collect the boarding pass and board the plane.
So -How can the plane take off, if Guruji is giving tea Prasad to His Situ ??
