An anonymous devotee from shirdi came to Nimongaon and applied the sacred Chandan (which was applied on Saibaba Idol in Shirdi) and put a Shawal (that was put on Saibaba’s Samadhi), just before the start of the funeral procession.

He took birth in December 1917 under miraculous circumstances through a miracle done by Shri Shirdi Saibaba. The story goes like this:

During December 1917, plague was playing havoc in Poona. Hence, Somanath (Nana Saheb Nimonkar’s son) decided to go to Nimongaon along with his 2 year old son Gopal Rao. On the way they stopped at Shirdi for Baba’s darshan. When they were leaving Shirdi, Baba gave them Udi and said “Pora la jiv lav” (save the child). Somnath thought that Baba had blessed his child Gopal Rao and hence he gave him some Udi.

They reached Nimongaon and found Dattatreya (brother’s son) at death’s door. The child, only 12 days old, was blue and cold, and was gasping for air. It was then that Somnath realized that Baba had given him Udi to save Dattatreya’s life. Frantically he searched for the Udi. But it was lost during the journey. Somnath took the child and sent a fervent prayer to Baba to save the child.  Baba came to his aid and after 15 minutes, the body temperature returned to normal, the breathing grew steady and the baby’s condition improved. The child was thus named “Datta” (i.e., God’s gift).

Saiamrithadhara.com prays to Shirdi Saibaba on behalf of lakhs of Sai Devotees to rest his soul in peace and to give strength to his extended family members at Neemongaon to bear this loss.
