ANNADANA PRABHU OF VAIKOM

THE EPISODE OF LORD AS DRUMMER

More than feeding the hungry, he rushes with meteoric speed to the scene of calamity of his adorers on mere soulful mention of his sacred name. He rescues every devotee from both trivial and life-taking problems. At all hours and in all places. And appears in all forms. Here is an anecdote that changed him into a drummer at a particular annual festival at the tearful solicitation of a woman worshipper. It is told that once the Puthusseri family, dedicated to the Lord as the hereditary drummers, was bereft of a male member. 

There was only alone pregnant woman left in the house. In the annual festival, the services of a drummer were quite indispensable and the woman found her position miserable. Normally hereditary rights, if once relinquished cannot be got back, she did not venture forgoing the post. She poured out then her soul and let out a heart-rending wail in the night preceding the Utsavabali. Her soulful prayers were heard by the Omni - compassionate Lord.
