Once he went to mosque to met Baba, he told to booty that “what astrologer told to you, did he tell any death will come to you? Well you don’t get panic or afraid, go with piece and let me see how death will kill you”. Booty alone used to go to take rest under the tree. Suddenly he saw a king cobra nearby, his servants tried to beat it with the stone. So booty stopped it & asked the servant to bring a stick, during that time the cobra has vanished. So booty remembers baba’s words don’t afraid & he happily memorized Sai Baba.
