Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
“TOMORROW I SHALL ENTER THE LUNATIC ASYLUM.”
Baba got fed up with this unworthy demand for miracles and one day, he declared: “Tomorrow I shall enter the Lunatic Asylum.” And the next day he did what he said. But the way he did it was strange.
Next day at dawn, Tajuddin Baba stood stark naked in front of the European Ladies Tennis Club. The ladies approached the police to put him in the lunatic asylum in Nagpur. And the District Magistrate of Kamptee cantonment issued the order. A few days later, the English ladies saw him walking on the road towards his house at Kamptee. They proceeded straight to the asylum to blame the police for setting the mad fakir free. But their amazement knew no bounds when they found that he was not let off but was very much in the cell, securely locked up in the asylum. At that time, the Chief Doctor of the asylum was Dr.Abdul Majid. One night, when he went around the hospital, he found that while all the other lunatics were locked up in their cells, Tajuddin Baba was loitering in the verandah of the cell. The doctor quietly went to the attendant on duty and took him to task for his negligence, for leaving that lunatic free.
But the surprised attendant assured Dr.Abdul Majid that he did lock in every lunatic securely. He personally led the doctor to the particular cell of Baba Tajuddin to prove his claim. Dr. Abdul Majid was stunned to see that this time Tajuddin Baba was inside the cell, securely locked up. This miraculous incident convinced the doctor of the real nature of Baba Tajuddin’s madness and henceforth Dr. Abdul Majid lived only as his devotee, seeking his blessings and guidance in everything he did. Later on, his experiences of Baba’s divine powers were numerous.
