Every day Saint Satramdas Sahib would go to the samadhi sahib of his beloved father Saint Khottaram sahib. which was a little away from Raharki Sahib.
He used to take prasad, flowers, agarbatees, food for animals and birds, water and would also do shabd keertan as an offering at the Samadhi Sahib.
During those days there were no dams to save and store water and sometimes the over flowing water from Sindhu river would enter the land (in local language it was called Char or latte) and would make it soft and when the water used to return back the local people used to sow chickpeas or peas on that soft land. But during the remaining part of year there used to be scarcity of water. Due to the scarcity of water animals , birds and the local people would face lot of difficulties.
People used to travel to far off places to the wells to get water to drink and also for their other daily requirements.
Due to this problem men, women and children used to face a lot of problems and they used to take their pet animals also to far off wells, ponds and potholes for drinking water. Every one was helpless.
Once when Saint Satramdas Sahib was going towards the samadhi sahib of his beloved father Saint khottaram Saheb for the offering a Darvesh Menahal Fakir who lived in Raharki Sahib came to meet Saijan along with Hindus, muslims,milk men, shepherds and the local people and said ” adorable Satguru the words you speak always are full of the divine grace of the beloved lord and always come true, so we request you to please pray and shower your blessings so that all the difficulties which everyone is facing due to the scarcity of water come to an end.”
when Saint Satramdas Sahib saw the sadness and helplessness of the people he drew a line on a particular area of the land with a stick he was holding in his hand and said that very soon a big river will emerge from this marked area and it will spread happiness to all the living beings of this city and even the other far off places, he also said that this river will bring joy and happiness to all the people of the places from wherever it will flow and will make the land fertile and there will be big reservoirs of water and since all this is demanded by Darvesh Menahal for the benefit of the people this river will be named after him. Within a few days the irrigation department of the British government held a survey of that area and selected the same place which was marked by Saint Satramdas Sahib to build a canal for the utilization of water from sindhu river and it was named after Menhal fakir and was called river Mahi which runs through the centre of the blessed village of Raharki Saheb.
Since Saint Satramdas Sahib had marked the place for river Mahi or Mahi wah while going to the Samadhi sahib of Saint Khottaram sahib. The Mahi river flows through the center of Big (Wadi) devri Sahib and the water of the river has by making the land fertile given abundance of green grass and food crops to the people living there making their lives happy and prosperous.All men women and all the other living beings are benefited by Mahi wah or river by the grace of Saint Satramdas Sahib.
When Mahi river was finally built and its water started flowing Darvesh Menhal got its inaugartion done with the hands of Saint Satramdas Sahib in the presence of all the British officers and the local people.
Menhal Darvesh told every one that due to the blessings of Saint Satramdas Sahib by marking the place for the canal the prosperity of all the living beings belonging to this place, became possible, he said that nobody had even had a dream of such a canal but only saint Satramdas Sahib made this possible for the benefit of not only the human beings but also for the benefit of birds and animals as this river has quenched the thirst of every one and made the land prosperous and he also prayed that may God showers his blessings every time in every activity and occupation on all of us.
