A brief about the translator

Ms.Mani Amma is aged around 78 years, and she has first visited Shirdi in the year 1940 and has been visiting Shirdi regularly since then. Her longest stay in Shirdi was from 1973 to 1978 and during this time she has spent her time by serving Baba in the Samadhi Mandir, Dwaraka Mai, Gurusthan and Chavadi. She used to stay where ever possible, if she did not find place, she used to sleep near the Gurusthan. During her stay she started doing the parayan of Satcharitra and was complety fell in love with the Satcharitra and was impressed so much that she thought, if the Devotees in Telugu could enjoy the beauty of Satcharitra and then started translating the Satcharitra by learning Marathi and also taking help from the various devotees who used to visit Shirdi or reside in Shirdi. She could able to complete about 9 Chapters in Shirdi and then she came back to Hyderabad and completed another 20 chapters by 1983. Then she got immersed in constructing a Babas temple at Kishan Bagh, and completely forgot the translation work.  Then the editors of Sai Vani a monthy Magazine came to her and requested her to contribute some articles to the Magazine and a thought arose in Mani Amma, why not publish the Satcharitra in the Magazine, so the publication of the Satcharitra in the Magazine started and then she started to complete the remaining chapters and the translation work was completed in 1991. She then published the book and it was a huge sell out, and then 2 more editions have been printed, The Sansthan took up the publication work in 2005. We are thankful to Sai Baba who inspired Ms.Mani Amma to translate the work in Telugu.
