Kaka Dixit visited Ahmednagar for election work. Next morning after finishing bath, rituals and breakfast, Kaka Dixit sat down leisurely to have a chat with the family members of Balasahib Mirikar. The topic of Sai Baba came up all of a sudden! Kaka Dixit was happy that Mirikars too were Sai devotees. He therefore expressed his desire to visit Shirdi for Baba’s darshan. Hearing Kaka Dixit’s desire, Balasahib suddenly remembered Baba’s picture! He got up quickly and uncovered the photo of Sai Baba kept in the center of the hall.
The first darshan of Sai Baba in a sitting posture on a large stone in Dwarakamayi thrilled Kaka Dixit. He felt Baba’s grace on him! It fascinated Kaka Dixit at its very first sight! A picture of a simple Fakhir! Grey beard, an imposing look, a kind expression, torn clothes, piece of cloth on his head with a big knot protruding on its left side. Style of sitting with right foot folded over the left one resting on the ground – all these exhibited a rich simplicity of a Loving God! Kaka Dixit had a feeling of achieving something he had missed so far in spite of his having everything in life! The lotus feet of Baba attracted him, and he gave them a permanent place in his mind. He shed tears of joy in fulfillment of the emptiness of his life. Kaka Dixit spoke to his hosts – “Balasahib, this very moment, I feel, my life is complete! Now I am looking forward to my visit to Shirdi.”
