Dr. Grigor Velev story with Baba Vanga
Story told by Dr. Grigor Velev – PhD in pathology
I saw Baba Vanga for the first time in 1967. I was an assistant at ISUL (Institute for Specialization of New Doctors), and every month we went on business trips to different hospitals around the country to conduct consulting. In this year, we had to visit few hospitals in Blagoevgrad, and I was together with three other PhDs – Dr. Goranov, Dr. Sharankov, and Dr. Delizhanov (all deceased now). When we finished our work at about noon time, Dr. Sharankov said: – Let’s go and visit Baba Vanga to get a closer look at her phenomenon while conducting her séances. He called some friends of his from Petrich, and we all went.
Baba Vanga accepted us very cordially – she had a special affinity to doctors. We attended two of her séances as spectators. The first visitor was a man from Serbia. Directly from the door she told him: – Look, don’t be mad. What people are saying for your wife is not true. Look after your kids – you have a full house with children, and don’t pay attention to people’s stories.
When the man walked out her house, Dr. Sharankov asked what were people saying about his wife and Baba Vanga said: – His wife is a total slut – there isn’t a man from the village that she hasn’t slept with. That’s why he came to ask. They have 5 children in the house…
– Why didn’t you tell him – asked Dr. Sharankov with a dose of curiosity.
– Do you know how crazy are the Serbians? He will go and behead her with his axe. Why should I tell him?
