officer at once decided to donate a sum of Rs.700/- the amount spent
usually for it every year from his own savings. And it is said that
it is being received from his successor even today. Indeed a great
punishment! Better atonement!! Best historic proof!!!
In the recent year; one Tahsildar of Changannur, a pious officer,
performed in an elaborate manner a 28-day-Utsavam with pomp and
splendour. During this period, the Mother had menses. The officer
with a view to completing the Utsavam as planned, turned a blind eye
to the occurrence and hushed it up using his official powers. Could
he hoodwink the omnipresent MOTHER? Would she endure this
desecretion? Result: His wife had profuse bleeding.
Untimely too. Enlightened by Munro's experience, he offered special
pujas as an act of atonement. His wife got relief. So the belief
gained currency and fortified the potency of the MOTHER and respect
for age-old belief. Would any heckling 'ISM' blink at this? With
what could it measure that divine sport? It is not literature to set
aside labeling it as fevered flight of imagination, but pure history
recorded with distilled facts and dates at it. Skepticism or
agnosticism must remove the coloured glasses soon; for getting
better perspective for their own benefit first.
