Prayer for Water Answered in Nepal

A tube-well was successfully drilled in Baluwa Village, which had no access to water previously. No trace of water was detected in the first attempt to drill, even to a depth of 140 meters. Later, a hydro-geologist stated that the geological characteristics of the area did not support tube-wells. A final, desperate attempt to drill was made at another spot, along with prayers offered to Sathya Sai Baba. This time water was found, and on the same day, streaks of vibhuti and yellow kumkum appeared on a photograph of Sathya Sai Baba. In gratitude, the ecstatic villagers started singing bhajans daily and greeting Sathya Sai volunteers with “Sai Rams.” An SSIO volunteer was assigned to teach the villagers bhajan-singing.
