THE PALPAYASAM EPISODE

This archamurthi developed special liking for palpayasam and visitors invariably offer this at the Ucchapuja - noon prayer time, and it is an important offering. Its specialty lies in a kind of sweetness that defies description. Its origin too is fantastic. Once it so happened the Thampuran to meet an emergency borrowed some paddy from a Brahmin living in the nearby Thalavady village, but it was not returned as promised. 

The Brahmin lacking in politeness demanded Thampuran to clear off the longstanding debt forthwith, when the Thampuran visited the temple for prayers. The Thampuran ordering the minister for immediate clearance, left the promises. The Minister managed to get paddy then and there and measured out the quality in the elephant shed if that temple and gave it to the Brahmin, but laid one condition that the entire stock must be taken home by noon puja, else the state would confiscate it. Poor Brahmin could not find labourers to transport the paddy before the hour fixed. He was helpless and restless.
