SHIRDI SAI PARTHI SAI
PART-19

(Continued from the previous issue)

ACT THREE

SCENE 3

[ This page has lots of Graphics. Allow time for the images to download. ]

 

One day, Easwaramma is busy with household work. The baby is left on the floor. It can now crawl. A cobra quietly enters the house and slides inside. The child crawls and moves towards the snake. The mother is not aware of this; she is busy with her work. The snake and the child face each other. The snake raises its hood and gently waves it. The child smiles. Suddenly, Easwaramma sees what is happening. She is horrified and screams, ‘Snake! Snake!’ People come running in. A few are armed with sticks.

 

EASWARAMM : [to a villager about to hit the snake] Stop! It you try to hit the snake, the child will be in danger!!

KONDAMA RAJU: [to EASWARAMMA] Don’t get excited! [To villager] Don’t hit the snake. Instead, go and call Naga the snake-charmer.

VILLAGER: I shall.

 

The snake charmer is brought. He skilfully catches the snake. Everyone is relieved. Easwaramma hugs the baby.

EASWARAMMA: My child, …my child.

VENKAMA RAJU: Don’t cry. Nothing has happened to the baby!

 

KONDAMA RAJU: There is nothing to be afraid of. Our Sathya is the very embodiment of God. This incident is merely for proclaiming that to the whole world.

People disperse, discussing the incident. Many realised that there was Divinity in the child and that was why the snake did not attack the child. However, no one realised then that the child was the Incarnation of the very Lord Himself. However, later, as the boy grew up, He performed many miracles, Leelas. Slowly, many began to understand that the boy they called Sathya, was the very form of God.

END OF SCENE 3


ACT IV

SCENE 1

Sathya is now a boy about five years old. One day in the Raju house; the children are being served food by mother Easwaramma. For Sathya, Easwaramma has prepared the dish sanghati, made out of millet. [Even today, Swami eats mainly sanghati; it is a poor man’s food but very nutritious.]

EASWARAMMA: Sathyam, do you like this dish sanghati? Is it nice?

SATHYA: Yes.

EASWARAMMA: Shall I give you some more?

SATHYA: Yes!

EASWARAMMA: Seshama!

SESHAMA RAJU: Yes mother.

EASWARAMMA: How is the sanghati?

SESHAMA RAJU: It is very nice!

 

 

EASWARAMMA: You like it? Shall I give you some more?

SESHAMA RAJU: No mother, I have had enough.

EASWARAMMA: Venkamma, how about you?

VENKAMA RAJU: Mother, I will have some more.

EASWARAMMA: Parvathi, what about you?

PARVATHAMMA: Me too, mother!

EASWARAMMA: What?! Is it so good?! You always say no but today you are asking for more! ……. Seshama, why don’t you also have some more?

SESHAMA RAJU: No mother, enough! I have already had rice and other side dishes

EASWARAMMA: Great, you and your calculation! When you are young, you must eat well. I will give you some more, and you had better eat it!

At this stage, Venkama Raju enters the house.

VENKAMA RAJU: Easwaramma!

EASWARAMMA: Oh, you have come! Join the others and have lunch. It is already late.

VENKAMA RAJU: Has father had his meals?

 

 

EASWARAMMA: No, he said he would wait for you. He asked me to serve food to the children first. Please go and wash your feet.

VENKAMA RAJU: Will do!

Venkama Raju comes after a wash and sees his father Kondama.

KONDAMA.RAJU: Venkama! Why so late? Come, let’s eat.

VENKAMA RAJU: Yes sir.

 

 

Together, they sit down to have their meals.
