I had Sai Darshan in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on September 27, 2015 evening after an interval of more than 4 months and that too during convalescence period of Illness. Prior to this visit, I had Darshan of Shri Sai in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on May 8, 2015 prior to my surgery for cancer of Right Upper Gum.
I got operated for removal of malignant tumour with reconstructive surgery on May 13, 2015. I was hospitalized up to May 20, 2015 and being discharged from hospital same day evening I am in post-operative convalescence at our Bangalore home with periodical check-up at OPD of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore. I started receiving post-operative radiotherapy treatment from June 22, 2015 for destruction of microscopic cancer cells so as to prevent spread of cancer in adjoining part of Right Upper Gum scheduled for 5 days in a week as OPD procedure in Department of Radiation Oncology Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore. On August 14, 2015 my post-operative radiotherapy treatment course was completed and convalescence period of illness commenced. Now time has come how the side effects of radiation subside and how much my physical shape, size and function of face return to lead normal life.
I have been engaging my time mostly using the social media networking website Facebook and my blog website of Yoga and Spirituality during convalescence period of Illness. As a Yoga Practitioner and Shirdi Sai devotee, on May 21, 2015 through Social Networking in Facebook, I posted about my swelling of right upper gum diagnosed as cancer and that I had radical excision surgery to that effect on May 13, 2015 for information to all my Facebook friends, relatives and family members at large with the message that “Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life”. I got quite a good number of likes and comments for the way I am fighting against cancer with much mental and emotional strength. Since that day, I am regularly posting my posts in Facebook on morning quotes, health magazine, photos of my remarkable events etc. on day to day basis. I am reciting morning prayer, listening spiritual bhajans of Shirdi Sai Baba and reading Shri Sai Teeka in Odia daily in morning, noon and night. Subsequent to publication of my article Power of Faith in Spiritual Life in Yoga and Spirituality on May 1, 2015 before my surgery for cancer, in post-surgery recovery period on June 6, 2015 I have published my article Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life in my blog website of Yoga and Spirituality, on July 1, 2015 the article The Significance and Purpose of Prayer was published followed by my last articles Overcoming Misery due to Illness and Managing Convalescence Period of Illness published on August 1, 2015 and September 1, 2015 respectively in the blog website of Yoga and Spirituality.
On September 24, 2015 Thursday during check-up at OPD of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore, the surgeon opined that the wound of Left Thigh created for reconstructive surgery had healed up and I can take up tap water head to toe open bath followed by medium distance journey inside city. Thereafter accompanied by my son, I had Sai Darshan in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on September 27, 2015 Sunday evening.
I pray to Sai Baba for my early recovery and rehabilitation in convalescence period of Illness during post-operative cancer surgery and post-surgery radiotherapy so that I can have his Darshan in Ashram again at short interval.
