SAI PARUSHAH (1820-1890)
Sai Parushah was born in Rohri
in 1920 in the house of Shri Hansraj, who was
goldsmith. His first name was Paru. His mother's
name was Chandibai. His parents were very religious
minded. They had two other sons also - Chandumal
and Jethomal. After finishing schooling he joined
service, where he was first a policeman and then
became the Subedar. Soon he married Gangadevi,
the daughter of Jhamandas goldsmith.
One day after finishing his duty he came home
and was about to take meals, when a policeman
came to tell him that he was wanted by the captain.
He went and did the job. When he started to take
food, again another messenger came to call him.
This ired him, and he went to the Captain and
keeping his official dress before him said, "
Sir, I am leaving your job, now I shall serve
the real Lord." The Captain tried to make
him understand but he said he was fed up with
the world. He walked down the distance and reached
his in-laws, who also rebuked him saying, "Since
you have left the job, you are unemployed, so
we shall not allow Gangabai to go with you."
He requested them, "At least let me see her
face for the last time." When his wife came
out he said, " Goodbye mother Ganga; farewell
to you." Parumal came back to Rohri and sat
on a tree in the dargah of Sai Bedal. Thereafter,
he spent twenty five years in doing Bhakti under
that tree. Now from Parumal he became Parushah.
The title of 'Shah' was given
to him by the faqir of Bhit Shah. Paru Shah was
a maser of miracles. Sai Vasan Shah was a special
disciple of saint Paru Shah. He was always in
a state of ecstasy.
This beloved saint of Sind, went
the way of all flesh on a Basaint Panchami night
