Mrs. C.Lalitha (70) is a housewife hailing from a rich landlord family married into another landlord family. She helped her husband to discharge his responsibilities as the eldest son and, with his cooperation, helped both the families - the family of her in-laws and that of her parents to tide over crisis after crisis. She describes here how Bhagavan rescued her from serious consequences of an accident.

'I am the eldest issue to my parents. My husband also is the eldest to his parents. Thus we had to attend to responsibilities of both the families. By God's grace, we could discharge our responsibilities to the satisfaction of all our family members and could settle down for a peaceful life in the spiritual environment of Gokulam.

In 2003, my second son invited us to his house in Bangalore city for Deepavali. When we went there, he had fever. By the evening, it shot up. My son's-in-laws are also devotees of Bhagavan. We put some vibhuti on his forehead. Luckily my daughter-in-law who would be always on the move owing to her official as well as service activities was there in the house that day. She knew driving. So she took him to a hospital and got him admitted. There it was discovered that he was suffering from a rare and dangerous type of pneumonia. Luckily, he could get proper medical attention in time, which helped him recover.

After about a month, we all went together to Tirumala after the recovery of our son from the serious ailment. When our people were shopping, my son's mother-in-law and I were chatting in a corner. At that time the temple authorities had raised some scaffolding there. As monkeys were playing on the scaffold, one of the rods got loosened and fell on my head and also on my shoulders. I fell unconscious. My relative immediately applied Swami's vibhuti on my forehead and began calling for help. Though some crowd gathered around, none of them could be of any help. Just at that time, a well-built person, wearing dhoti with zari border, came, lifted me up in his hands, took me to an ambulance and made me lie down in it. No knowing how an ambulance came to be parked there at that moment. When my people came and wanted to thank him for the help, he was not to be seen.

I was taken to the Ruia Hospital at Tirupati of the TTD and was given free medical attention by the Temple authorities. I had a fracture of my shoulder bone. More serious than that was my head injury. I was facing the danger of losing the sight of my right eye, besides running the risk of going into coma due to a blood clot in the brain due to that injury.

After initial treatment at Tirupati, my sons wanted to move me to Bangalore as there is Neurology Department in the Sri Sathya Sai Super Specialities Hospital, Whitefields. But the Authorities there did not agree to admit me being involved in an accident. My son Pradeep and my daughter-in-law, and other members of my family are all devotees of Swami. All of them naturally were praying to Bhagavan. By Bhagavan's grace, the same Hospital Authorities agreed to reconsider and admit me. And they did so even when it was past midnight, which was very unusual there.

By Swami's grace, I did not lose my eyesight. The clot in the brain also got dissolved gradually. My shoulder fracture also got healed. I am able to attend to my normal work without any difficulty including seva activities.

Though this incident made me experience physical discomfort and pain, the whole treatment both at Tirupati and at the SSSIHMS, Whitefields, Bangalore made me experience the 'treatment of love' with absolutely no financial implication at all, which is a gift of the Divine to me. When I wrote a thanking letter to Swami, He so benignly stopped in front of me and took it with a smile.'
