MA PAUDI

It was commonly believed that Ma Paudi used to go on horseback, occasionally, to another shrine of her at humakeswari, about two miles away from Seraikella town. Many would aver that they bad heard the sound of horse-hoof oil the, road leading to Jhumakeswari. In recent years, after the merger of the States, an Adivasi police guard at the sub-divisional subtreasury of Seraikella near the Palace gate, has stated that lie saw somebody coming out from the Palace gate riding on a horse, at the dead of night, though the gate was shut.

Many living persons vouchsafe that, after the death of Ma Paudi's white horse about 20 years back, a white pony at Icha-a village some distance away-would run straight to the local Paudisthan whenever it was set loose. The owner of the pony had a dream that he should offer his pony to Sri Ma Paudi as she was without one. On an auspicious day he led the horse to Seraikella, and at the outskirts of Seraikella the horse broke away and ran straight to Ma Paudi's temple and then to the stable.

But that pony has also died and for the last five or six years Ma Paudi is without a- pony. Another popular story is about the visit of tigers to the temple. It is quite possible that, when the outskirts of Seraikella were full of jungle in the last century, tigers might have been attracted to the carcasses of the sacrificial goats and buffaloes. A few years back a Bihari treasury guard claimed that he had seen a tiger on Jeth jantal night at the gate of the Palace.
