Mrs. Malanbai daughter of Shri D. R. Joshi Devgaonkar has suffered from T. B. After all medicines having failed, she insisted on her being taken to Shirdi. When brought to Shirdi, Baba asked her to He down on a blanket and take nothing, but water. She carefully followed these instructions but after a week or so, she died one early morning. Baba was then in the Chawadi and for the first time in Shirdi History Baba did not leave Chawadi though it was past 8 A.M. The daugh­ter's parents, with heavy hearts were preparing for the funeral when Malanbai appeared to breathe, opened her eyes and looked round about as if much frightened. Then she said "A black person had been carrying me away, very much frightened, I cried out to Baba for help. Baba took His Satka and gave him good cudgeling snatched me away and and carried me to Cha­wadi." She gave a correct description of Chawadi. Just at this time, "Baba left His Chawadi bed bawling out striking his Satka against the ground and came shouting to Dixit wada where the girl had put up; seeing Malanbai restored to life, there was joy all-round. Is it not the greatest of all the supernatural powers of Baba (Giving life to the dead) ?

The mother was very much pleased to see her son back at home and was convinced that Baba was omniscient. In the meanwhile a person of his village being attached with cholera approached him, he administered to him Baba's holy ashes and he was cured. This led to people to think that he was a physician. The holy ashes however soon exhausted and so Haribhau was embarrassed as to how he should deal with another cholera case if he got one. But luckily for him the cholera left his village and casually met one Marwari merchant known to him. The merchant seeing that a simple devotee had come to meet him told Haribhau "Look here, my brother is seriously ill, all physicians and doctors have tried their utmost to cure him, but they have all failed now since you are Shri Sai Baba's devotee, if your Sai Baba is really a saint, he must cure my brother through you. Haribhau saw the patient found the case to be serious, was therefore anxious to slip away but as it was night, he could not leave for home. At night when Haribhau bhajan (prayer) time became due, the patient himself made the necessary preparations for bhajan and through out the Bhajan sat concentrating on Baba's Photo. This surprised all and the Marwari now said "whether the patient dies or survives I will have his medicines from none but you." To avoid the responsibility, Haribhau purposely quoted his fees in excess of those of the Civil Surgeon at Rs. 200/- The marwari agreed to that. That night Baba appeared in Shri Haribhau's dream and told what the disease was and the medicine to be prescribed for it. Haribhau prescribed the said medicine and the patient started taking this medicine. The patient fully recovered after a time and so the marwari offered Rs. 200/-, the stipulated fees for Shri Haribhau, but Haribhau would not accept it stating that he had done nothing it was his Guru's Work. Marwari could not rest satisfied till he made good Haribhau's labour in some form or other. So he bought a scarf worth Rs. ?00/- and going to Haribhau's hours, when he was out and left it there. Haribhau could not refuse the acceptance, but he felt that the price amount of the scarf should be sent to Baba. However he was penny less and Baba had also left off His body in the meanwhile, offering his night prayers, tears rolled down his eyes. That very night Baba appeared in his dream and said "There is famine all round at present, so sell the scarf and purchase rice from this amount of Rs. 200/- and sell it under price for the present. Carry on this business till the amount of Rs. 200/- runs out. Then sell lice at profit and you will be able to made a living." Following these instructions, Haribhau prospered and became 'nappy and then never thought of deserting home.
