Ms. R. Savitha, a student of the First Year B.Sc. (Hons) of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Anantapur Campus narrates an experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan in her own words.

'My grandpa was a stout, healthy man. When he was 78 years old, he had mild heart attack. He was admitted to the Apollo Hospital. I was then in my 8th Standard. One Dr. Ramachandran attended on my grandfather. All the tests were done. When the ECG / EEG was taken, it showed three major blocks in the heart, and a few blocks in the brain also. It was a very critical case. He could not be operated upon because of his age. So the doctor prescribed a few tables, and discharged him. Fifteen days later, he collapsed again and was taken to the hospital. As a little girl, I could do nothing. So, I prayed.

My grandma was a very courageous lady and believed that her husband would survive. My grandpa too chanted Sai Gayathri regularly. Since he showed improvement, the doctors discharged him. He was asked to go for a check-up after three months. They gave him a lot of tablets. My Balvikas teacher gave me Swami's vibhuti. My grandma gave him vibhuti in water everyday. My grandpa was also confident that Sai would heal him.

After three months, my grandpa went to the hospital. Dr. Ramachandran told him that a pacemaker could be provided as open-heart surgery could not be done. Everything was ready but the operation was cancelled due to some technical problems. This happened twice. Finally, Dr. Ramachandran told us that they would do an angiogram to ascertain the position. Accordingly, my grandpa was taken to the operation theatre. After a few hours, Dr. Ramachandran came out exclaiming 'it is a medical miracle. There are no clots in the heart and the brain!' The doctor had seen my grandma always reading Swami's books. So he said 'amma, your Baba has saved your husband. He is perfectly all right. There is no need for any pacemaker.' My grandma burst into tears of joy. My grandpa is hale and healthy even today. And, this is not due to medicines but due to Swami's blessings. It is obvious that when faith and confidence coincide, a miracle occurs. Bhagavan has given the gift of life to my grandpa.'
