 In my family, wherever we move, we bring this picture with us. It reminds me of home, and that God is always with me. The photo is 8 inch by 11 inch, and is framed with wood. The picture is of a man who could perform miracles, as he was blessed by God. He would help many people with his powers. Sai Baba was a kind man and he was willing to do anything to help anyone, even though he had little. My grandmother gave it to my mother before she was going to immigrate to America, and it has come with us to every house we have ever moved to. I don’t remember any time in my childhood that we didn’t have it at my house. I pray to it every morning, for Sai Baba’s blessings. On holidays like Holi and Diwali, we read prayers in front of it, and stories in Telugu, my language. It’s always been there, and I hope that my mother will pass it down to me when I’m older and start my own family.
