Rabda: My Sai . . . My Sigh
Rabda has lost much in life and now he wants to lose his life too. But destiny saves him. As he lies distraught and broken on the hospital bed, he has a visitor—Sai Baba of Shirdi himself. From there, together with Baba, he embarks on a journey of understanding his life, of how his anger affected his past life and how it has now cast a shadow on his present. Many truths of life and living begin to unfold. Through Baba’s conversations with Rabda emerge Baba’s philosophy and his teachings. Powerfully written, this novel is an anecdotal path to understanding faith, hope and surrender, and Sai Baba of Shirdi.
