MOTHER RAJARAJESWARI OF CHOTTANIKARA

 

THE EPISODE OF KANNAPAN

According to the local history, the present town and its surroundings were but a thick forest infested with wild animals, wilder bigots and wildest naradhamas living by way lying and taking out the valuable from the innocent travelers. Among them there lived a blood - thirsty bandit by same Kannapan. He was terror to the people, and created new records in ruthless extortion and torturous methods. 

He was a beef eater too. One night he managed to take a bulky cow home seizing it from a herdsman for slaughtering. But to his dismay, it disappeared into the forest snapping its thither. Anon he went in search of it and trekked miles and miles in the thick forest, but to no effect. He retraced his steps. When back home a pleasant surprise awaited him. To his infinite joy, he found the cow in his garden, cares by his only daughter, the apple to his eyes - nay, his very breath.  Nothing he liked most than this young lively lark, who used to regale him with her play and pranks during his short stays in the house.
