Ravi Mariwalla, hails from Mumbai. He was blessed to be part of Bal Vikas and Pre Seva Dal and spoke in Baba’s presence in 1979 in Mumbai and again at Parthi in the same year. From then on, he had a strong desire to study at Baba’s college. Bhagawan gave him this opportunity in 1982 and he studied there for nine years. At Swami’s college, he was part of the Speakers group and the Brass Band and participated actively in various Service activities. Through these nine years he had many opportunities to interact with Bhagawan. His parents and sister too were also blessed by Bhagawan. He also accompanied Swami to Kodaikanal and Chennai. He was also the blessed recipient of three Gold Medals for distinction in MSc, MBA and the All Rounder’s Gold Medal- from Bhagawan’s own Hands!
The highlight of his time with Swami, came when, after obtaining his MBA degree, Bhagawan asked him to work as one of the first employees of the Sri Sathya Sai Super Specialty Hospital, at Prasanthi Nilayam. Ravi served at the Hospital for 14 years in the Cardiac Surgery departments playing multiple roles including serving as a full time Clinical Perfusionist.
Ravi considers it a blessing to share with the community, the memories, learnings and insights he has gained.
