On 15th April`2010, in Wellington's Lower Hutt Suburb Wainuiomata in New Zealand, 
a Sri Lankan Christian Developer was developing a new Subdivision, in his 10 acres of land.

While digging the field, a Digger found a solid object, about 6 to7 feet under the ground. 
He stopped digging immediately and lifted this object out of the ground. 
The Developer, on seeing that this solid object was the Statue of some Deity, halted further digging and got the Statue cleaned.  
He then called a Hindu Priest to identify the Deity, as he himself was not sure about it.
The Statue roughly 2 feet tall, happened to be of Shirdi Sai Baba in a sitting posture.

Soon, water started coming out from the place where the digger had found Baba's Statue and slowly it turned into a small pond. 
Hence, Baba's Statue was put on a small wooden pallet and now rests floating in the pond, at the same place.
Also, apparently the Developer has decided to leave this particular spot untouched and re-develop another area.

It has to be noted, that the Shri Shirdi Saibaba Sansthan of New Zealand had organised
Two Aarti's on 04th July`2009
in Wellington  along-with distribution of Bhajan books to devotees. 
Ever since, the Sansthan's members in Wellington were conducting regular Bhajans and Shej Aarti, every Saturday. 

So, while Baba once again proves his Omnipresence, the New Zealand Sai Sansthan,
 is regarding it as a good Omen for their plans of building Sai Baba's Temple in Auckland.
