For a change this morning I had been to temple as momma wasn’t feeling well…She would go otherwise ;)
I am goingto this siddhi vinayak temple from my 10th standard though not regularly.
Today a strange incidence happened. I was waiting for the priest to come to offer the flowers I had with me. While I was entering, a septuagenarian old man, started talking to me saying why I wasn’t coming to temple often and why I was not seen for so many days. I was initially skeptical with whom was this old man talking to. I asked him: “Are you talking to me?” He said: “Yes, of course you”.
He started talking to me as though he knew me from many years and was saying that I always have seen you when you come here and you never talked to me. But Today I made up my mind to talk to you. I was really surprised! I have never noticed that man observing me. Hmm…I was still skeptical as to why this old man was talking like this? Puzzled look!
We spoke for about 10 minutes, after which he himself said that I resemble his grand daughter and that’s why he wanted to talk to me. He referred me as his grand daughter to the priest also. Me with a relieved look started knowing more about him.
He wished me all the best luck for my GMAT (which is very soon June 28th) and also offered me blessings which was the best part of the meeting. He also told me never to go without talking to him when I go the temple! That was a hospitable meeting that still mesmerizes me!
