Guruji said, “Tum nahin ham school chalaayege beta”.
Tiwari of Delhi has been a staunch devotee of Guruji since 1980’s. Like other devotees, he also awaited the auspicious Bada Veervaar for placing his problems before Guruji. But the way Guruji met people, some time in his bed room and mostly moving in the unending que, the time span was always short with him. Tiwari would say one or two problems and forget the rest always. He some how realized this fact and decided to write all items on a paper in future so that he was able to read out all problems to Guruji. In fact Guruji was too fast to turn to the next person on account of the heavy rush though he listened to each one but for a few seconds only.
On one such occasion when Tiwari’s turn came, he remembered the list and so put his hand in his pocket so as to read out the problems. Guruji looked at him and said, “Rahne de, mujhe pata hai jo tu likh kar laaya hai. (Ok ! Ok ! Let it remain there as I know what ever is written in the list.) Then Guruji spoke out all the items listed in the paper and said, “Yahi likh ke laaya hai na?” (Is that all in your list ?)
It was amazing for Tiwari. Guruji verbalized the total list from one to all as if He is the writer Himself. God “The ultimate knower” is a phrase i know from my childhood. Today I am being unanimously forced to add & say that Guruji “The ultimate knower”.
In the simple life of this couple, the final decision over any vital issue must be taken by Guruji and so both of them reached Guruji on Sunday. One Sunday they showed a document of residential flat to Guruji and sought blessings. But Guruji didn’t approve it and said to cancel that deal. Tiwari said that the token money of Rs. Ten thousand has been paid which shall be forfeited in that case. Guruji didn’t bother and said, “Minoo puchh ke ditta see ?” (Did you ask me before giving ?) And then suspended the topic.
After lap of some time, Tiwari and his wife Shashi went to see a land recommended by some friend. Looking at the barren land Shashi out rightly rejected the proposal but Tiwari was some how convinced. So they both went to Guruji on Sunday and prayed for his decision. Guruji said, “Plot lelo our chaar diwaari kar lo”. (buy the plot and raise the compound wall and make a room also.) Guruji further said, “It will be good to run a school there”. Tiwari said that how could he think of the school since he had no experience at all. But Guruji said, “ Tum nahin ham chalaayege beta”. (I will manage it, not you). Shashi said that the name of the colony is Nihal Vihar and she didn’t like that also. At this Guruji said amusingly, “Yeh Nihal Vihar tumhen nihal kar dega beta” (this name will make you prosper my child). So the plot of 100 yds was purchased and a small room was built with a sign board bearing the name Bal Vikas School. Just as they did so three children were admitted and the school was started. After some days Tiwari asked, “ Guruji, sirf teen bachhe hain, school kaise chalega”? At this Guruji said, wait and watch, there would be many students shortly. Next day ten new students were admitted and in another week more students came for admission and in a short time the room was full and the space fell short. Now it was time to think of a bigger land. In the meantime some person approached Tiwari and offered him a big plot worth 5.5 Lacs. After saying ok, Tiwari went to Guruji again and said Guruji, “Mere pas itne paise nahin hain, payment kaise hogee ?” (Guruji I don’t have that much money, how would I arrange the payment ?) Guruji was in a very light mood. He said, “Paise ka intezaam to maine karna hai, tu ja aur apna kaam kar”. Knowing his need, a friend approached Tiwari and gave him two lacs without charging any interest. Likewise some other relative gave three lacs and the payment of plot was made right in time. Now Tiwari again utilized a Sunday and prayed to Guruji for money to construct the school building. Guruji said, “Jis tarah plot ke paiseon ka intezaam hua hai usi tarah building ka intezaam bhi ho jaayega.” (You never know. The building funds shall also be arranged just as the payment of land).
Tiwari had a friend working in a bank who was aware of Tiwari’s need of funds for construction of school building. Some thing strange happened. The manager “Loans” in his branch got transferred abruptly and his seat was offered to him with immediate effect. He called Tiwari and asked him to submit an application for construction loan. Within a week or so the funds were available and the school building was raised in a short time. It all was so much charming that Tiwari and Shashi were bewildered to watch what ever was happening. The time passed and the total loan was repaid within three to four years. The words of Guruji, ‘That He will run the school’, have been exactly authoritative. Tiwari simply sits in the office and the school is running successfully of course with a moderate effort put by the Tiwari’s.
The exciting and glamorous thing is that every thing what ever is happening was told in advance by Guruji many years back.
Thou art the knower of our future O’ master,
Guru dev ! Kripa keejiye—
