In the middle of the night I was slapped by some one two three times, but I could see no one I was scared and frightened and ran out of the room.
Charu’s music teacher Indu Prakash has been quite familiar with my family. He was a regular visitor here to give music lessons to Charu.
One morning I went out and found him lying on the sofa in the living room. Seeing me he got up to say good morning but I asked as to how he was sleeping in the drawing room. He said some thing strange, “I was sleeping in the Guruji’s room. In the middle of the night I was slapped by someone two three times, but I could see no one.
I was scared and frightened and ran out of the room. I wanted to go home but the outer gate was locked. So I could not manage to go home therefore I came to the living room and passed the rest of the night on the sofa.
Guruji’s room in Punjabi Bagh Sthaan is exclusive, a place of worship. None enters there except the family members and that too, if some prayers are necessary. No one takes it casually and hardly some one sleeps there unless permitted by Guruji’s Shishya or some prominent family member. Those who are desirous to bow down their heads for the sake of some boon, would be permitted to enter and touch their foreheads on the tail of the bed. For peace or for some spiritual reason, they seek permission from the Shishya, but that is only in day the time while Seva continues.
After going through the narration it is more than clear that Guruji is choosy about sharing his room in the night time. It can be assumed that he has the choice to allow or to disallow people to sleep there. Though there are some evidences when some people were particularly advised to clean his room and pass the night on the floor and the their desires were fulfilled. Like a couple from Bombay was commanded by Punchu to sleep in Guruji’s room for 21 days. The result was wonderful. They got the child after many years of marriage. This couple is a regular visitor at Bombay Sthaan. The Shishya Sunny and his wife Punchu do Seva on some selected day s every month.
