SHRI SAINATH told Bhagat Mhalsapathy, "ARRE BHAGAT, LISTEN TO MY FAKIRI WORDS WHICH ARE EVER TRUE. YOU HAVE ONLY DAUGHTERS BUT NO SONS. A SON IS A MANGO FRUIT, WHEREAS A DAUGHTER IS A TAMARIND FRUIT. GO AND STAY IN YOUR HOUSE. ALLAH WILL BLESS YOU WITH A SON."
This was on Janmashtami 1896 AD. Mhalsapathy left the Masjid and began staying in his house and on Janmashtami 1897 AD, a son was born in his family and was named Martand. So that Bhagat may not get too attached to his son, SHRI SAI told him, "LOOK AFTER YOUR SON FOR 25 YEARS. THAT IS ENOUGH." Little did Mhalsa know that 25 years meant the end of his own life after that. Bhagat attained Nirvana on 11.09.1922, 25 years after his son Martand was born.
Martand, like his father continued to worship KHANDOBA while also serving SAI. He was just 21 when SAINATH attained Mahasamadhi in 1918. Martand attained nirvana on 14-11-1986 aged 89. Humble Pranams to both!
