I work as Head Cashier in UCO Bank. Recently, I got transferred to Osmanabad. It was great feeling to be just 80 kilometres away from hometown.
UCO Bank is government bank. So internet connected in government banks is BSNL. And server fails many times in month. Customers and employees get irritated due to this failure.
In previous branch, I used to take receipts from customers and tell them that I will credit the money when internet connection is available, payments won’t happen as it is risky to give money without debiting the money from account of customer. If internet doesn’t work till 5 pm, then we would travel to nearby branch of UCO Bank as internet connection would be available there and we could credit money in customers account. In previous branch, nearby branch was 12 kilometers away. So it was easy.
But after getting transferred, today that situation arose when internet connection failed. I was taking all cash and receipts and told them that cash will be deposited in account after internet comes.
After realizing the number of receipts I have taken, my senior asked me to not take so many receipts as we may have to keep the cash in our locker room, without depositing in customers account, if internet connection doesn’t come. And it will be at my own risk. And next day, I may have to face wrath and irritated customers. I ignored my senior and said to myself that I would travel to nearby branch to deposit money in account. As soon as I was thinking on this line, when reality hit me. Nearby branch was 65 kilometers away. Realising this, I went to branch manager, I asked him the solution to problem of internet connection. He showed me whatsapp group of IT cell of our UCO Bank and branch manager from all of our branches in Pune Zone have posted messages of crashed internet connection in all branches.
According to some of my colleagues, internet is down all over India in UCO Bank. Some said it is just local BSNL problem. From 3 pm internet has crashed, now it was 4.30 pm. After inquiry to my previous branch, they said that, internet is available to our nearby branch. Nobody really knew, what exactly was the problem with internet.
Going to nearby branch which was 65 kms away was out of question at 4.30 pm. Maybe I would have to wait till 9 pm, which had happened few times before in Osmanabad. I was quite irritated. Suddenly out of nowhere, I remembered Om Swami’s face.
After remembering Swami’s face, this were the thoughts that went through my mind,
“आप कुछ भी कर सकते हो स्वामी, The Rainmaker book में आप ने बरसात को भी कंट्रोल किया था। बरसात तो कुदरत ने बनाई है, इंटरनेट तो इंसान ने बनाया है। इंटरनेट आप कंट्रोल कर सकते हो आराम से। मुझे नहीं पता कुछ भी, अगर मेरी भक्ति सच्ची है, अगर आपका grace मुजपर कायम है, तो आप इंटरनेट वापस लाएंगे। आप मेरी एक भी इच्छा नहीं पूरी करते, अभी ४.४० बजा है, आप ५ बजे तक इंटरनेट कनेक्शन वापस लाएंगे। आपको कुछ भी इंपॉसिबल नहीं है। नहीं तो मेरी भक्ति झूठी है, मैं ढोंगी हूं, और आपके लिए मैं कोई मायने नहीं रखता।“
As this thought process was running through my mind, another thought came to my mind, to restart the computer and refresh everything. Exactly at 4.54 pm, internet connection was back. Swami has granted wish of his rebellious and arrogant child.
I was overwhelmed and flabbergasted by his grace. I just couldn’t control my excitement. I deposited money in customers account with speed, thinking that, “Don’t know how long Swami can hold the connection. I need to free him from my burden as soon as I can.”
All I can say after this experience is: He is no ordinary being. He was monk till he got Divine mother’s vision. After her vision, he is none other than Devi. Paramshakti.
Jai Shri Swami.
