While writing this post, i am excited as i will be leaving for Shirdi today evening.
Two days before i was disappointed on a matter which ultimately disturbed my blog work planning. It seemed as if i cannot move ahead and would not be able to share something special with you all on occasion of Diwali. My younger brother saw this. Of course, my disappointment displeased him. He suggested me to do something unique. But i could not think of anything. Then all of a sudden he said that he will make a power point presentation using few pictures of Shirdi Sai Baba and add some teachings along with pictures. I did not deny and allowed him to move.
Few days before, we celebrated my brother's 20th birthday and he received a sweet idol of Shirdi Sai Baba seated in a swing (see the picture below) from his friends.
It was a wonder for us to think how his friends thought of this gift. Admist this discussion, my brother said that many a times he refers incidents of Sai Satcharitra to his friends suitable with circumstances. He reads Sai Satcharitra once in a year during his study break, but it was a surprise for me and my parents that it has assimilated in his heart and mind in such a way that he follows and even advices his friends and classmates. He even added that knowledge when kept with ourselves loses its value in due time, but when it is passed to others, the same value is doubled. It is surprising for a boy who has just came out of his teens, to think in this manner.
His work of creating Shirdi Sai Baba wallpapers for mobile was much appreciated. Coming to the point of power point presentation (PPT), he was very determined to spread the word amongst non-believers of Baba to make them believe and believers to confirm and assure their faith. Yesterday, he skipped his breakfast and was doing the work till noon. Some sort of passion was seen in him.
When it was complete i was very surprised to see it very well organised and the way he presented his thoughts. His only motive behind this presentation is make everyone viewing the slideshow think about Sai Baba just once. It is his wish to all of you to share this PPT with your friends and spread awareness and this was in his mind while working on it. Along with pictures and teachings he has included Diwali greetings pictures with Shirdi Sai Baba made by Sai brother Rahul and Sai brother Nimesh. My special thanks to Sai brother Nimesh to send me pictures on a very short notice.
Steps to view PPT : After downloading PPT file, press function key "F5" to start the slide show and go on clicking to navigate between the slides.
I hope you all will like this small creation by my younger brother and give your valuable suggestions.
