Every day Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib would go to the samadhi sahib of his beloved father Aad Satguru Sant Sai Khotaram Sahib. which was at a little distance from Raharki Sahib.He used to take prasad, flowers, agarbatis, food and water for animals and birds, and performed shabad kirtan 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, and would make it softer and when the water returned back, the local people sowed chickpeas or peas on that soft land because on such soils, having good water retention capacity, its growth is abundant.
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 a lot of difficulties.
People used to travel, to far off places, to get water to drink and also for their other daily requirements from the wells.
Due to this problem men, women and children used to face many difficulties. People used to take their pet animals also to far off wells, ponds and potholes for drinking water. Every one was helpless.
Once when Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib was going towards the samadhi sahib of his beloved father Sant Sai Khotaram Saheb, a Darvesh Menahal Fakir who lived in Raharki Sahib came to meet him along with Hindus, muslims,milk men, shepherds and the other local people and with their folded hands said ” adorable Satguru, your powerful words, always come true. We request you to please pray and shower your blessings upon this land, so that due to the scarcity of water the difficulties , which people living here are facing, come to an end.”
When Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib saw the sadness and helplessness of the people, he drew a line on one particular area of the land with a stick, which he was holding in his hand, and said, that very soon a river shall emerge from that marked area, which will spread happiness to all the living beings, of this city, and even to the other far off places.
He also said that in all those places, from where that river will flow, it will bring pure joy, happiness, peace and prosperity to all the living beings, living there, and it will make the land fertile and there will be big reservoirs of water, and since all this was demanded by Darvesh Menahal for the benefit of the people, that 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 Sant Sai 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 Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib had marked the place for river Mahi / Mahi wah, while going to the Samadhi sahib of Sant Sai Khotaram Sahib, it flows through the center of Wadi Devri (big Devri) Sahib and the water of the river has made the land fertile with abundance of green grass and food crops for the people living there making their lives happy and prosperous. All men women and all the other living beings are benefited by Mahi wah (river )by the grace of Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib.
When Mahi Wah was finally built and its water started flowing, Darvesh Menhal got its inaugartion done with the pious hands of Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib in the presence of all the British officers and the local people.
Menhal Darvesh told everyone, that because Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib marked the place, for the river,the prosperity of all the living beings belonging to this place, became possible, which was a dream come true and Sant 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 had quenched the thirst of everyone. Mehnal Darvesh prayed that may Satguru Shehenshah showers his blessings upon everyone..
