Here is the original Roti

Here is the new Roti thicker than the original one.

User Image Here is the original Roti on the right and the new Roti on the left.

Recently many people in Central Texas have been blessed with a miracle. 'One Roti becomes Two' thanks to blessing of Sai Baba! Even our own home was blessed. We were pleasantly surprised by one Roti turning into two within a week at our home.

Is it a miracle or is there a logical explanation. Well. Parag found an article explaining the whole phenomenon.

Here is how the magic works. You get a Roti (or what looks like Roti) from someone who has it. You get a steel container (dabbo) put it with 2 glasses water, 4 teaspoonful of Sugar and one spoon of Chai Patti. Write 'Om Sai Ram" with Kanku. Wrap it in red cloth and keep in it front of Sai Baba's Picture for one week. A week later you open the Dabbo and you find one Roti has become two thick Roti's. Seeing is believing. When you open the dabbo you are amazed to find two instead of one Roti. Could it be the proof of Sai Baba's blessing to you? A miracle. perhaps?

Here is from a link Parag found:
'And sure enough I found my answer in something called the Manchurian Mushroom. While reading more on fungus, bacteria and yeast mixtures, I came across some more interesting stuff. Something called the Kombucha, It's a fungus-like mix of bacteria and yeast that grows in sugar and tea solution. It takes 8-10 days to grow and becomes a pancake like organsim that resembles a mushroom. What is truly miraculous is the tea it grows in. That apparently is the elixir of life and eternal youth capable of ridding you of old age, grey hair and diseases ranging from cancer to constipation.

Another name for Kombucha? Why the Manchurian Mushroom of course.

Of course those of you who pray to Sai Baba should continue to do so. Baba has never endorsed this magic and may be it is his blessing that I came across this logical explanation.

Jai Shree Sai Ram!

Here is the link to Kombucha for science nerds!

Here is the article from internet I found.

Tea, Sugar, Water and the Roti that Triples
I got a call today, from one of my SILs. She asked me if I believed in the Sai Baba.

"Which Sai Baba?", I asked? The one with big hair, hair to which mine had always been compared too? Child saint, miracle worker, bhabhuti, amrit, green diamonds and gold Rolex watch distributer? Nope, I told her, I think it's a miracle that people still haven't debunked his miracles and stripped him naked of any claims to godhood.

"No, no, not THAT Sai Baba, I'm talking about the Shirdi-wale-sai-baba".

Ahhh, him. The white haired, white-garbed saintly looking person who sits with one leg horizontally crossed over the other. I remember going to Shirdi with my parents when I was young. My father was a believer. Maybe I shouldn't be such a "nastik", maybe I should start believing in SOMETHING other than Karma. So I said yes. She then proceeded to tell me how my faith could become unshakeable belief.

She told me to visit her on Monday and to bring a round steel container and Dhs 1.50.

Skeptical old me. Of course I asked questions. Why a steel container? What was I supposed to do with it? Why the money? When I got to her house there were too other ladies waiting there.They too had round steel containers with them. As soon as I got there, the proceedings began. My SIL got HER steel container from the kitchen. She put it on the dining table along with a picture of the white-clad saint, lit an agarbatti and said a small prayer. After that she opened her steel container.

"Ahhhh! Look! My roti has tripled itself miraculously!", she exclaimed in triumph and fervant belief.

Curiously, I looked into the box. Indeed there was what looked to be one nice, big, thick, rather wet "roti", with what looked strangely like tea leaves stuck on top of it. She told us that she had been given half of this "roti" by a friend of hers and been told to keep it for week covered in a solution of tea sugar and water. At the end of the week the half would have become one and a half. Truly a miracle.

She told us to open our steel containers so that she could give us our "rotis". She then pealed off the top layer, half of a roti stuck was on top of the whole one, and gave it to me. She cut the leftover whole roti into two halves and gave one half to each of the other two ladies. For that piece of miracle we paid her the princely sum of Dhs. 1.50.

Now what? Was I supposed to eat this unappetising looking thing?

"No, no! You're supposed to create your own little miracle and pass it on!"

How, pray tell me?

All I needed to do was add a teaspoon of sugar and tea to a cup of water, stir and pour it over my roti, close my container, place a picture of the Sai Baba close to it and leave it be for a week. If I had faith and if I had prayed hard enough, at the end of a week when I opened my box, my half a roti would have become one and a half. And if that happened I was supposed to pass on the three halves to three other persons of faith, thereby multiplying the miracle and propagating the faith.

Ingenious!

But what about the money? Well, if I believed hard enough, maybe my money would multiply too!

Interesting. A sure-shot way to get people hooked.

I brought my container home, made the tea, sugar, water brew, poured it on top of my half a roti, closed the box and put it on top of the fridge along with the Sai Baba's picture that my SIL had given me.

No agarbatti and my mind was blank when I tried to pray. Such a "nastik" I am.

Being me, I googled.

And sure enough I found my answer in something called the Manchurian Mushroom. While reading more on fungus, bacteria and yeast mixtures, I came across some more interesting stuff. Something called the Kombucha, It's a fungus-like mix of bacteria and yeast that grows in sugar and tea solution. It takes 8-10 days to grow and becomes a pancake like organsim that resembles a mushroom. What is truly miraculous is the tea it grows in. That apparently is the elixir of life and eternal youth capable of ridding you of old age, grey hair and diseases ranging from cancer to constipation.

Another name for Kombucha? Why the Manchurian Mushroom of course.

Now the question is not whether my miracle will "happen" or not but what I should do with it. Should I drink the tea? Or throw it into the sea as instructed?

Greatest threat to Hindu religion comes from Dhongi Baba - Dada - Didi - Swami etc.
