AGRA - SIVA TEMPLE 

The priest elated at her devotion and faith in Lord Siva advised her to perform with austerity a special puja lasting for 11 days for her lord's safe return. She accepted and started the vrata after consecretion by the priest with Rudrabhishek. The dedicated lady strictly adhered to the tenets of the vrata like river bath; wearing prescribed dress; walking bare foot to the sanctum, and chanting Panchakshari - OM NAMASIVAYA sitting in padmasana posture. This she continued for eleven days with utmost strictness and offered ritualistic worship as instructed by the priests. 

The vrata was consummated with Maha Rudra patham on the eleventh day. As in custom, she presented valuable gifts to the priests and assembled devotees. No sooner did the formalities reach the "Finale", there arrived then a messenger with a letter addressed to her. The contents plunged her into ocean of joy; for, it was from her lord Col. Martin, who communicated of his resounding victory in the battle and it was quite unique. He added that his miraculous escape from the grave danger was due to some unseen super-human power; for, his coming out unscathed was so overwhelming unlikely to occur in war theatre, and the whole army felt delighted. 

The grave danger having been passed off, he was returning home victoriously and shortly would meet her. She instantly folded her hands and uttered loudly that it was Lord Siva who was instrumental for his safety. So her faith mounted higher resulting in visiting the temple everyday morning and offering bhaspabhishek to the Lord. Hindu adorers extolled her tenacious dedication and started emulating her.
