Making a Cow-Herd into the Diwan:

As usual, he went to forest for grazing the cows. It so coincided that the Nawab of Adoni named Siddhi Masud Khan came to the same area for hunting. Then a messenger came to him with a letter. Being unlettered and as there was no one educated in his hunting party, he asked the boy Venkanna to read, but he was also illiterate. Though he confessed that conceited Nawab threatened to hang him by the next tree, if persisted. Sweating all over, he remembered then Sri Swamiji's assurance and prayed to him mentally. And lo! unknown to himself, he read it from first to last letter with ease and grace. And it was the news of his army's success in the war against his enemies. Jumping with joy, he took Venkanna to his capital and gave him a job. And also facilities for further education. His interest in education soon made him a great scholar. Learning, the Nawab made him Diwan. It was all due to Swamiji's blessings, he knew. And he clung to him by prayers and waited for opportunities to repay his indebtedness to that illustrious Acharya. whose alchemic touch could change lumps of clay into dazzling diamonds.
