Miracles Do Happen
« on: February 27, 2009, 11:11:16 AM »
It was 10th June 1940. The radio announcede the fall of Paris to
Germany and the entry of Italy into the war against Allies. At about
3 am, Bhagavan, Narayana Iyer and G.V. Subbaramayya were at
work in the grinding room.  GVS just now heard the rumour that to counteract the action of Italy, Turkey had declared war on the Allies.
GVS asked Narayana Iyer who was the latest arrival to the grinding room from the town, whether he had heard the news on radio.  But,
before Narayana Iyer himself could reply, Bhagavan Ramana said:
"No. it cannot be true."  Narayana Iyer confirmed this rare reply of
Bhagavan, and turning to GVS, observed: "France, a first rate Power, has fallen in three days.  Then do you think, Britain can hold out longer than three weeks at the most?  Bhagavan, upon this, again observed:  "Um! - But Russia..."  Abruptly Bhagavan cut short His speech and resumed silence.  Neither of them had the courage to
ask Bhagavan Ramana, what Russia was going to do, though it was strange that Bhagavan should mention Russia, who was at the time friendly to Germany.

It will be remembered that war broke out out between Germany and Russia only one full year afterwards, and it was in fact, Germany's
attack of Russia, (Seige of Stalingrad), that turned the tables and the tide of fortune in favour of the Allies. 

Here was afforded a peep into the Omniscience of this seeming recluse who was supposed to know nothing of the world!
