deity is renowned as a bestowed of children to the childless parents. A special
feature that greets the visitors here is that the childless parents bathe and
feed the local children sumptuously to wring the benedictions of Bhagawan for
Santanprapti. When their wishes are granted, they come later with the children
in the month of January to offer prayers to the Lord and participate in the
festival celebrated to mark the joyous occasion.
Another tradition that strikes
the eyes is , the fish in the river, opposite the shrine are fed with maramaras,
biscuits and coconut kernel by the women, if ever they find that their breath
milk is quite inadequate to feed their children. When the fish are fed, their
wish gets fulfilled - secretion of milk increases, sufficient for their infants.
Faith does succeed, where grief groans under the dread weight of ignorance.
