us witness the miracle now. Many of the places in Maharashtra are associated
with Parasurama. Though his birth, education, exploits, conquests took place in
this region, he is not so popular, say ardently adored as the other deities like
Vithoba, Khandoba, Bhavani etc. May be due to his settlement after giving the
conquered land to Kashyap.
Yet there is one temple exclusively dedicated to him.
And strangely enough it was built by a Muslim woman in token of her gratitude
for the benefit received. Sounds odd, isn't it? Nay it is quite in consonance
with his odd character. Wasn't he catholic in his religious outlook? Did he ever
distinguish one from another?
