Shri Nathji had told Shri Bhutt before he left for Nagpur in 1952 that he would become a High Court Judge after going to Nagpur. Bhutt had been called to Nagpur to take up the post of a District and Sessions Judge there.
During the initial days of Bhutt’s stay in Nagpur the chances of his becoming a judge of the High Court appeared as remote as the skies above. Gangabai Bhutt had written to Shri Nathji from Nagpur saying:
“Prabhuji, you had asked us to go to Nagpur, and had told Bhutt Sahib that he would become a High Court Judge, but that does not appear to be possible. The post of a High Court Judge lingers on only on the outside.
“High Court kee judgi baahar hee ghoomti hai!”
Shri Nathji had written back:
“Baahar vohi ghoomaa kartaa hai jissne andar aanaa ho!
“Only he lingers on outside who has an intention of coming in!”
Immediately upon Shri Nathji’s return to Delhi from Allahabad on the 27th of January 1953, a letter arrived from Nagpur from Gangabai Bhutt.
Shri Ganesh Prasad Bhutt had been appointed a Judge of the High Court at Nagpur! This was one of the greatest miracles of his career. He had not stood a chance of becoming a High Court Judge, especially after his absence from the field of law for seven years during which time he had been in the War Department and the Defence Ministry, in administrative jobs, in Simla and Delhi.
Mrs Gangabai Bhutt continued:
“Your words had to come true. Despite insurmountable difficulties and insuperable obstacles, Bhutt Sahib was appointed a Judge of the High Court at Nagpur. This is all due to your blessings. The work for which you had sent us here has been accomplished.”
Bhutt Sahib became even more devoted and loyal to Shri Nathji than ever before, after his promotion to the level of a High Court Judge. The tone and tenor of his letters carried even greater reverence and humility than ever before. He always referred to himself as “Daasanudas” in his letters to Shri Nathji, meaning: the servant of thy servants.
