Guruji was standing on the roadside in East Patel Nagar along with a few Shishyas and was delivering discourses on spiritualism.
It was night time and this was the usual style & practice of ‘The Super Master’ to shower His blessings on Shishyas. Just standing on the road side, distracting our minds from the vehicles rush and sounds in the atmosphere; and demanding total attention & focus on ‘Himself ’ and His discourses”.
Normally, the Gurus select a solitary place where there is no disturbance so that the discourse goes on un disturbed. But strange and different are the ways of Guruji who would use His own, unconventional styles to educate His disciples. He demanded full attention while the atmosphere was crowdy and noisy, as the roads are. Therefore knowing Guruji and understanding Him is beyond our calibre.
Once, when He finished up, I asked for permission to go to Chandigarh next morning, which he happily gave.
I some how was not satisfied with His immediate ‘Yes’.
I asked, “Guruji aap ne poochha nahin ki mein kyon jaa raha hoon ?
(By the way, Guruji you didn’t ask me the purpose of my going ?)
Guruji said “Haan beta, mein jaanta hoon, tu haryana se factory delhi shift karne ki permission ke liye jaa raha hai.” (Yes beta, I know, you are going for the Government’s permission for shifting your factory from Haryana to Delhi).
I further asked, “Guruji, kaam ho jaye ga ?” (Will the job be done, Guruji ?) Guruji said, “Nahin beta” (No son !)
I said, “Toa mein nahin jaata” (So, then I should cancel the programme)
Guruji said, “jaana hai beta, aur iske baad, do baar aur bhi jaana hai”. (You are supposed to go, not once but two times more also)
And– it happened as Guruji had said.
I had to go to Chandigarh for three times and then one fine day I received the permission letter from the Government of Haryana, allowing me to take the factory to Delhi along with all registrations and licenses.
When the Distt. Industries officer gave me the letter of permission; he could not believe his eyes and said, “I have seen such letter for the first time in my life that the Government is allowing a unit to shift to another state. He asked me sarcastically, “Aap hein kaun Sekhri Sahib?” (Who are you by the way, …Sekhri Sahib ?)
I recollected and realized, when Guruji was scolding me for not coming to Gurgaon regularly, I had complained that most of the time, I was on the roads, going to Haryana factory from Punjabi Bagh, then from Haryana to Daryaganj show room and then back to Punjabi Bagh.
At this Guruji said, “Tum factory Haryana se Delhi le aao” (Ok ! You shift your factory from Haryana to Delhi.)
I said, Guruji, “Haryana Government permission nahin degi” (Govt. of Haryan won’t give permission.)
At this Guruji said, “Permission Government ne nahin, meine deni hai”. (Its me who will sanction you the permission, not the Government.)
And…!!! This is what happened in my case. There is no other example in the history that an industrial unit got permission to shift to other state with all rights and registrations without any conditions imposed.
Guruji’s favourite word is ‘Heela’.
Heela means an intermediate arrangement created by Guruji Himself for solution to the problem placed before Him by the Shishyas and the general public. Guruji used to say, “Beta mein to Heela tayyaar kar deta hoon. Uske baad kaam toa apne aap ho jate hein.” (Son ! I simply barge in with my creation of an intermediate arrangement. I do it and forget. The work then, is done automatically)
In my shifting case also, the Heela was created by Guruji. That was marvelous. It played a unique role never heard or seen before:-
A few days had passed since Guruji commanded me to shift the factory to Delhi. An unexpected thing happened in the club where I play Tennis in the morning. After the game, I was relaxing when suddenly a player friend just asked me if I had any problem in Haryana state. He further said that his friend was an influential person in the state and was eager to oblige him as a good friend.
I told him that I wanted to shift my factory from Haryana to Delhi and permission from the Government of Haryana was necessary.
My friend took me to his friend and asked him for the required favour. He agreed and called us at Chandigarh (Capital of Haryana state). He exercised his influence and helped in the shifting process.
People said that this job was next to impossible, but it happened. This is the so called ‘Heela’ of Guruji which He created in that night on the road side, when I wanted permission to visit Chandigarh.
It was not expected that my friend would ever ask me if I had any problem in Haryana state and then introducing me to his friend, then exercising his influence and getting my job done which was never precedents before. I am sure, this is the ‘Heela’ of Gurudev.
In nut shell, if ever any one placed his problem before Guruji and He agreed and said “Ho jaye ga” then the problem was over. May the job be whatever difficult, it was done.
When people came to express their thanks and gratitude, Guruji’s expression was just normal and never with any excitement, as if cracking a soft nut.
