IntroductionAuthor - K. R. Vaidyananthan
A Brahmin from Kerala went to, Kashi to have darshan of Kashi Viswanatha. There he met a group of sanyasins. One of them asked him where he hailed from. The latter replied "Talasseri" (as Tellicherry is known in Malayalam).
"Is it Talasseri where the holy Tiruvangad is situated was the next question.
"Yes," the Brahmin replied.
"Then, why should you leave such a sacred place and come all the way to Kashi?"
the sanyasins asked in chorus.
