Positive Chronicles - The fakir on a horse
by Life Positive
She married at the age of 23, which was fairly advanced 70 years back. For nine years, she tried to get pregnant but could not. Somebody suggested that she do some surgery to correct her problem. Eventually she agreed.
On the day of the surgery, she woke up early in the morning, said her regular prayers, and started packing her clothes for the hospital. Just when she was about to leave, a very thin fakir mounted on a very thin horse came to the door of her cottage and said, “Do not do what you have decided to do today. Your wish will be fulfilled.” Handing her an earthen lamp he said, “Light this lamp for 15 days,” and disappeared. She tried looking for him around, but he was nowhere to be seen. She asked the neighbours, but they questioned, “How can anybody enter on a horse when the gate of the cottage was closed? Even the wall around the cottage is so high that no horse can jump it.” My mother was surprised.
Anyway, her intuition told her, “You have waited for so many years. Why can’t you wait for 15 more days and do what the fakir said?” She cancelled her surgery and for the next 15 days, lit the lamp without fail. The test next month reported positive for pregnancy! When she returned from the laboratory, to her surprise, she found that the lamp had vanished! She tried to search for it all over the house, but did not find it.
She delivered my sister that year and then three years later she delivered me. This incident affected my mother very much. She related this incident to many relatives and friends. She shared this incident with me so many times, that it got imprinted like a film in my memory.
