Restoration of Mrs. A.K.Varma
SAIRAM TO ALL OF YOU.
I wish to share one incident that occured while i was at Sri
Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar, Ooty. This incident happened in the year
1986. I was in my class IV at that time.
Mrs.A.K.Varma rather called by the name Mother by one and all in
the school from the staff to the smallest child was in her ripe
old age working as the principal of the school. She was one of the
most loving mothers. She gave the same love to one and all in the
school. One fine morning we all were told that Mother was no more
and she is dead. At that time there were only few classes in the
school and so the number of children were not many. But whoever
was there, all of us plung into deep grief. As children it was
something unbearable for us to hear that our mother was no more
In the meanwhile after the doctors completely declared that they
are no chances of her reviving, Mrs.Nanjan (wife of Mr.Nanjan who
was the president of samithi in Ooty and also who had given the
school premises live in the same building with his family as all
his daughters were teaching at the school and he is the father of
our dear late SRI RADHAKRISHNAN - the only person who got the
oppurtunity to serve SWAMI till his last breath) went iniside
Mother's room and applied some vibhuti to her body which swami had
given them earlier.
LO! after some time, there was a sound from Mother's room, she got
up as though one awakened from deep sleep and called for
assistance. She was alive!!! We all jumped with joy when we heard
this, all the children were literally jumping and running all over
Immediately she went to Prashanti Nilayam to have Swami's darshan.
Swami told to her, "I have extended your life, come and stay with
me." So she came back to Ooty to bif farewell to all of us. Tears
were flowing down every child's eyes when she began to leave. None
of us wanted her to leave but it was the Command of Swami. She
came to Prashanti Nilayam and lived in WEST PRASHANTI - 1, on the
ground floor. I took oppurtunity whenever i got to go and meet her
as i shared a very intimate relation with her. She could recognize
me very well after so much lapse of time also. She had adopted a
small boy from a prison in pakistan and brought him up. Of course
this was long back, but i just wanted to mention about her pious
Later, after finishing my class-VII, we were transferred to Sri
Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School, Prashanti Nilayam. When we
came for evening darshan, we could see her sitting in the front
row on the ladies side, sometimes when i got an oppurtunity, i
would waive my hand to her, and she would give a smile.
Later around 1992, i dont remember exactly the year, (pardon me
for bad memory) during the evening rounds, Swami told her,"Varma,
your time is over, u have to come back to me". The following day
she breathed her last. She passed away without any pain.
Very few are such kind of people in this world. To tell a little
more, it was becoz of her i joined the school in ooty. My parents
were not devotees of swami when i got admission in the school. My
mother wanted to send me to a boarding school in ooty as she was
very much concerned about my education. So she sent me alongwith
my father for a preliminary round to show me the school life at
different schools and which ever i selected, they would join me
there (my mother was afraid, if i did not like the school they
joined me as per their choice, i might run away and get lost). So
i went to ooty when i was 6 yrs old and my father took me around
many schools and we spent time in each school. When we reached
Swami's school, and i entered the office room, Mother came towards
me and first took me in her arms. She showed me the complete
school buidling and talked me to little things. And that is how i
chose the school. So Swami had brought me to his education system
through the love and affection of this GREAT LADY.
My pranams to her HOLY SOUL forever.
I thank you all for this oppurtunity to share one of the miracles
happened in front of me.
