There was a time in Lucknow when R. R. Khanna had sought a better job. He had approached Shri Nathji and said: Huzoor, many people of status come to you, which include Maharajas and businessmen and Ministers of the government. Can you recommend me to any of them?
Shri Nathji said: They come to me to take something from me. Would it not be strange if I were to ask them for something, even for you? You must ask only of God!
Khanna imagined that Shri Nathji was probably not interested in recommending him for a job. No matter, then, he said, I have a large circle of acquaintances, I will be able to find something, I’m sure.
Khanna went around to all his influential friends asking for help, but none of them came to his aid. He was tired. In frustration and despair he sat down under a tree in a garden. Shri Nathji’s words echoed in his mind, that one must ask only of God. No sooner had this thought entered his mind when a man approached him: Are you Mr. Khanna? I have an interesting offer of a job.
