Tell Kyra to Keep Painting

‘Tell Kyra to keep painting,’ Swami instructed in a dream a few days back. Now, Kyra, my daughter, is no artist, although she likes to draw like most children. It is music that she calls her best friend, because it calms her. Yet this dream is special to me because Kyra has been quite sad … Continue reading

A Love Story Rewrites a Life Story

This is not a typical love story but then I am not a typical person either. This is a story that began with love, was infused with love and continues to be the deepest source of love in my life. It began on an ordinary day but in an extraordinary way. The 8th day of … Continue reading

How My Heart Was Humbled and Healed by Him

When people ask me, “What is your qualification?” I always respond saying, I am a Sai student. I strongly believe that this is the only true qualification that I have. Born in Hyderabad, I had never known of Sathya Sai Baba, until 1992. As a schoolboy I saw a cover story in a magazine and … Continue reading

Nourishing Blood With Love – The Haemometer Episode With My Beloved Swami

An important facet of the Master is that for Him nothing is trivial or important. What is important for you is for Him too. That is the way He wins hearts. And that is how Sri Sathya Sai won my heart! I did only two years of my schooling in the Sathya Sai Higher Secondary … Continue reading

“Did you have ragging in your college?” asked my friend. “Er.., No! Not really” I blurted. Last week, I was sitting with two friends, when one of them asked me which college I was educated from.  I said I studied from Sri Sathya Sai University, in Puttaparthi, India. The question that followed took me by … Continue reading

Lemon juice was being served optionally, to riverside walkers like me who insist that music, … Continue reading

God’s Delays are not His Denials

This is a famous quote that I have heard a million times. Well, not a million times, but it feels like that! It is one of the all-time favorite phrases to be used while consoling someone who is in despair. Even I have made use of it on many occasions – “Hey! Don’t worry. Things … Continue reading
