MA PAUDI

Many persons are supposed to have seen supernatural occurrences like the sudden flaring up of the bright light at the top of the temple pinnacle, which has the Chakra and Dhwaja. Such occurrences have taken place whenever there were greatcalamities or during occasions of great joy. There are still many people who remember that there was a very bright glow when the great flood of 1927 had threatened Seraikella town. On 27th July, 1927, the river Kharkai rose unprecedentedly and half of the town was washed away and the other half, including the Palace, Court and the Kutchery, was in imminent danger.

The glow brightened as the danger heightened and it faded away as soon as the peril passed off in a couple of hours. Ma Paudi has also been a source of inspiration to a number of literary men of that area. Folk stories and folk songs have grown out of the abiding faith in Ma Paudi. The liquidation of Seraikella as aFeudatory State has posed a problem so far as the temple of Ma Paudi is concerned. The temple was located inside the Palace of the Raj and no Devattar property had been specially allotted for the maintenance of the temple. As already explained, Ma Paudi + is venerated throughout the area and worshipped by all.

After the State's merger, the burden of upkeep of the temple has fallen wholly on the private purse of the ex-Ruler of Seraikella. The restrictions on the darshan, described earlier, still remain, but the maintenance now has become a problem. It is understood that the ex-Ruler has made a suggestion to the Government that the image of Ma Paudi may be installed in a temple meant for the public and that he be fully exonerated from the cost of maintenance in consideration of his present reduced means.
