MANTRALAYA MAHAKSHETRA

HOW A COWHERD BECAME A DIWAN

Once in the village of Kandanathi, he preferred the but of a poor boy, named Venkanna. Deeming it a God-sent fortune, he satisfied the Holiness with feast and puja. Gratified more with his devotional fervour than the dishes offered, he asked Venkanna at the time of parting to remember him in times of crisis to tide over it. The boy received his blessings and forgot all that happened. But after sometime, he went to forest for getting fuel. It so coincided that the Nawab of Adoni named Siddi Masudkhan came to the same area for hunting. Then a messenger came to him with a letter. Being unlettered, he asked the boy Venkanna to read, but he was also illiterate. Though he confessed, the conceited Nawab threatened to hang him by the next tree, if he could not. Sweating all over, he remembered then Sri Swamiji's assurance and prayed to him mentally. And lo! unknown to him, he read from first to last letter, with ease and grace. And it was the news of his army's success in the war against his enemies. Jumping with joy, he took Venkanna to his capital and gave him a job. And also facilities for further education. His interest in education soon made him a great scholar. Learning, the Nawab made him Divan. It was all due to Swamiji's blessings, he knew. And he clung to him by prayers.
