Uttar Pradesh.

Mr. C. L. Kaw retired in 1997 as the Chairman, Railway Board, New Delhi. An ardent devotee of Bhagavan, he narrates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'I was working as General Manager, Eastern Railway and I had come on leave to Delhi. It was the first week of February. On 31st May, vacancy of a Member of the Railway Board was occurring. In the Railway Ministry papers are generally processed one month in advance for filling up a vacancy. Thus, in the present case processing would normally start around the 1st May.

While I was in Delhi in the first week of February, on one day early in the morning at about 4:30 a.m. when I was alone in the room and fast asleep, I suddenly woke up and I found Swami near my pillow. He asked me 'when are you coming to Delhi?' I replied 'it entirely depends on You, Swami'. He smiled and blessed me, and then went away. The whole incident was so real that I could not think of it to be a dream. But what puzzled me was that when vacancy of the Member was to occur at the end of May, why Swami was talking of my transfer to Delhi in the first week of February. Moreover, I never had the privilege of seeing Swami in my dream, let alone getting a vision. When I went to the Railway Board on the day later, the then Chairman, Railway Board, of his own accord, told me that the file regarding posting of Member (Traffic) had been moved on that day. I was really amazed at this. Subsequent developments showed that in spite of the fact that my name was not recommended at the lower level, it was at the highest level that discrepancies had been pointed out in the proposal and my name was finally approved.'
