Sri Rama draped in the dress of a servant followed be his dutiful
brother Lakshman went to the chamber of Tanisha in the dead of night
and handed over the entire amount of six lacs misappropriated by
Gopanna for temple purpose. Though wonder was knocking at the door
of his conscience, he directed them to remit the same to the
treasurer with a note under his signature. On counting to the last
pie, the treasurer, issued a receipt to be shown to the jailor for
immediate release of Gopanna. On production, Gopanna was freed, but
he was struck with wonder, nay turned mute and motionless at this
mysterious happening. Even the Nawab, treasurer, and jailor could
not believe as how such huge amount was obtained by the imprisoned,
who was practically denuded before imprisonment? Who were the two?
How could they manage to come to the chamber in the dead of night ?
Did they, by the way delude the three into believing with the
payment of such huge sum? Was it a fact or delusion? It was neither
a lie, nor delusion; for, the exact amount paid was in tact.
Gopanna was released with a clean chit. When the wonder ceased to
operate the Nawab reinstated and honoured him fittingly be making
several endowments to the temple. Moreover,
he decided to present to the presiding deity of Bhadrachalam temple
some offerings - Pattu Putam and Pearls every year during the
Kalyanotsavam festival celebrated on a grand scale. A farmana was
issued anon to this effect.
