Last month I was travelling back from the Ashram in Tellicherry with my friend Brijesh Tolani. On our way to Bangalore we were driving through a very bad stretch of road close to Kabini when the car hit a crater. Brijesh who was driving, muttered ‘oh that is a bad one’. Within a few seconds, the emergency oil lamp lit up. He immediately pulled the car over. By now, it had started raining heavily and we were stranded in the middle of nowhere. This was an elephant corridor. Just then an Ambassador which came behind us stopped and the driver told us that all our oil had leaked at the crater behind. He then drove off.
We prayed silently to Divine Mother. Mother help us out of this situation. Brijesh was very cheerful. He told me – ‘Rajesh nothing can happen to us. Mother is with us’. Within minutes he dialed his friend in Bangalore – Vikram. Vikram Nanjappa used to head one of the branches of Jungle Lodges Resorts. The Kabini branch of Jungle Lodges Resorts was just 2 kms away from us. Within 45 minutes, help was at hand. The car was towed away to the resort and we were dropped off at a hotel at a place called Hand Post which was the nearest place about 20 kms away. Vikram’s wife Shyamini got her driver who stayed at this place to book a room for us. The hotel was brand new and we spent the night peacefully.
The next morning, another friend of Brijesh’s – Sachit had arranged two mechanics from Mysore to visit us. They found out that the oil filter had broken. It was replaced and we were safely on our way back to a peaceful drive to Bangalore. Divine Mother made our journey a most memorable one. Thank you Mother.
