TK was facing personal problems. So he visited the Haji Malang dargah (a shrine built over the grave of a revered religious figure, often a Sufi saint) on the outskirts of Bombay. Things hadn’t changed in his favour even six months later. That’s when someone told TK to visit the “bigger” Khwaja Muinunddin Chisti’s dargah in Ajmer, Rajasthan.
But at the Ajmer dargah, the head baba (priest) took one look at TK and said, “Beta, tumhara khaataa to pehle hi Haji Malang mein khool gaya hain. Tumhara upaye wahin milega.” (Son, your account has already been opened in Haji Malang. You will find your solution only over there).
P.S: This was the first time that the Ajmer baba was meeting TK and nobody had told him of his Haji Malang visit.
