Say "Tirupati" and watch the reaction, rolling the eye balls from corner to corner- uttering 'Namo Srinivasa' twice, a bearded sadhu looks at you from top to toe, if it is in the thritha kshetra, atop the highest summit, like Kedar; muttering "Om Venkatesa", a priestly looking man instantly folds his hands, if it is in the upper gangetic plain near Haridwar; 'Voh Srinivasa Mandir' darts from the lips of a saffron-clad sanyasi with palms joining, if it is in Varanasi; "Will you do me the favour of dropping this note into Hundi?" comes a genuine request from a gray-haired spiritual pandit, if it is in Ayodhya; 'Balaji Bhagawan' leaps out from the mouth of a pot-bellied saint, while his urchins clapping hail Govindaa, Govinda in ecstasy; if it is in erstwhile Bombay Province; "How lucky are you Bablaji to belong to that sacred place" saying, a Bengali Babu pats on your back, if it is in Calcutta; "Elumalai Sannidhi" is heard anon from a pious man with upraised hands in an act of prayer, if it is in the Kanya Kumari; "Ah! Tirumala Timmappa" is the joyous exclamation that escapes from a Kannadiaga, if it is in the former Princely State of Mysore, etc., etc., etc., will greet your ears, while scene after scene of the persons reacted fill your soul with devotion.
