An elderly lady by name Kamala Ammal of Matunga, Bombay, was in Shirdi for the Punyathithi of Baba in 1943. Her son was in war service. She was in great agony and sought Baba’s help. She was occupying a room next to the Samadhi. At 8 p.m. in the dark, she moved on, not knowing that the steps behind the Samadhi had no parapet wall, (at that time) she fell down on the stone surface. Her knees forehead was bleeding. When offered medical help she declined, stating that when she fell, a male with a lit lantern stood by her side and gently passed his hands over the hurt portion of the body. When she looked up it was Sai Baba Himself. He told her she would be all right and that He would look after the welfare of her son.
