Tiruvalluvar was a
great saint of Tamil Nadu. He lived long, long ago in Madras. He was a poor weaver. Vasuki
was his wife. She was very dutiful. One day Vasuki was drawing water from a well.
Tiruvalluvar called her. Vasuki left the rope and bucket half way down the well. She
hurried to her husband.
Lo! The rope and the bucket hung in mid-air! Vasuki waited upon her husband. Then she
returned to the well. She drew up the bucket. Another day Tiruvalluvar was eating cold
rice. He said to Vasuki, "Will you fan it? It is too hot." Vasuki fanned it. Hot
steam came from the cold rice! Such were the powers of the saint.
