more incidents and predictions, direct or
indirect, in riddles. These have been narrated to
Shri P.N. Razdan by several people during these
years of migration, since 1990 onwards. Among
those who have narrated these are some
eye-witnesses to these events and include Shri B.N.
Wali, Shri O.N. Warikoo, Shri Shanti Sus, Shri O.N.
Thusoo, Shri Ghulam Mohd. and many others.
of success in every field
Mohamad Abdullah Malik (*) is a pious and devout
Muslim spiritualist who spares no pains to help
the poor and helpless people. One of his intimate
friends told me that from the very start of his
service in an important department of the
Government, he has been and is spending a
substantial portion of his salary (and now his
pension) to mitigate the sufferings of the needy.
and his friend B.N.Wali, shared all sentiments,
feelings as thoughts as well as spiritual
experiences with each other.
He reminds me of that great unmatched Headmaster
of C.M.S. Central Biscoe High School who was
famous for his scholarship in English, Urdu
Persian, Sanskrit and Arabic, his saintliness
sociability together with a commanding roar like
that of lion, perfect human attitude and self
sacrifice. No doubt that he could spend much on
widows, as Malik Sahib. He saved from drowning in
river Jehlum his neighbour at mid-night (a suicide
attempt to escape painful illness), in mid winter
when he was a septuagenarian. The residences of
both were close by on the river bank.)
his academic merit and general intelligence, Malik
Sahib failed in his departmental examination in
his first attempt. After this he filled in his
examination form for a second time, when he tried
to persuade his friend also to take a chance. But
since the latter was a fresher in service he
declined. A few days later, when Shri Malik had
completed his examination, he asked his friend
just to see Swami Ji in this connection as till
then he had heard much about his spiritual powers
from others. Shri Wali did as desired. He told
Swami Ji about his friend, Shri Malik's concern.
Oddly enough, Swami Ji's reply was direct and
spontaneous as if he knew everything about him.
friend Mohd Abdullah will pass all
examinations," Swami Ji said.
hearing about the prophecy, Shri malik showed his
inclination to pay his respects to Swami Ji in
person. Both went there after a few days and Mr.
Wali introduced his friend repeating his previous
concern and request to Swami Ji. The passionate
appeal evoked a quick and positive response. As
narrated to me it stands as follows:
yak taraf/Mohd Abdullah malik Yak Taraf
Hukum Swami Nandlal;
Abdullah sub imtihan main pass.
on one side; and Mohd Abdullah Malik on theother;
By Order of Swami Nandlal, Mohd Abdullah Malik
passes all examinations).
said order was written by Swami Ji himself and
handed over to Malik Sahib before getting it
the first part of the prediction obviously meant
that Malik Sahib would succeed irrespective of
examinations, the second part predicted his
success in all aspects and tests of life. This was
substantiated by the events that followed. To Shri
Malik's dismay his name was missing from the list
of successful candidates. The pass percentage of
successful candidates was only 18 %. When they
contacted Swami again his reaction to this was the
same as before. And when his attention was
subsequently drawn to the list of marks cards
issued under the signature of the All India Chief
Registrar, Swami Ji was consistent in his
Ji wrote again and dictated the order for the
so-called record, before its issuance to Mr. Malik
in person. The order read as:
Ba Hukam-I Swami
Nandlal, Mohd Abdullah Malik, Walado
- Malik, Sakin - Srinagar - sub imtihan main pass
order of Swami Nandlal, Mohd Abdullah Malik s/o -
Malikr/o - Srinagar, passes in all the
the meantime, there was a violent demonstration in
South India in protest against the low result
percentage. The basis of the massive
demonstrations was the usual complaint that a
large proportion of the questions were out
investigation the grievance was found to be quite
justified and genuine. And so, the concerned
authorities were compelled to approve an increase
of 10 per cent marks as grace marks to all the
candidates. This raised Mr. Malik's score from 52%
to 62% when the requisite pass percentage was put
at 60%. Mr. Mohd Abdullah Malik was as such
a transcendental intuition Swami Ji possessed.
the Husk: The riddle of failure
early seventies one Superintending Engineer's wife
had made her daughter to deposit fees for getting
her Mathematics answer books re-checked in
Matriculation Examination in the J&K School
Board of Education; the basis being that the girl
had subsequently solved the whole
paper correctly at home.
of her over anxiety and concern the girl's mother
went to seek Swami Ji's blessings in the matter.
No sooner did she enter the jam-packed room she
was greeted with a riddle addressed to the whole

this was a negative reply to her wish, which the
lady could not understand. The lady, in self
deception, left convinced that something good was
being done in favour of her daughter, as expressed
by her to the author. But alas! to her dismay, the
final outcome of the re-checking was negative.
is exactly what the Swamiji had actually conveyed
to her in the riddle, but she had not understood
the meaning behind it.
a similar case of B.Sc. Examination, a certain
candidate, one Sh. Quasba was indirectly asked to
see the concerned Board authorities about his
actual results. The candidate is said to have
taken it lightly as he had the impression that
nothing concrete had happened before, nor did he
expect it to happen then. But all the same, his
parents insisted that he should deposit the
re-checking fee. On re-checking some discrepancy
was found in the marking of the papers and he was
declared successful. This was narrated by the
candidate himself to the author.
