  1. R Sridhar says

    Just came across this article.
    Sri Vedamurthy was my good friend, and he narrated another incident connected to this article.
    It seems ‘The Hindu’ paid him Rs 500/- (or so) for this article.
    Sri Vedamurthy immediately converted all to Re 1/- coins and left for Kancheepuram.
    He sought permission from Maha Periyavaa to do Pada Poojai with these coins.
    Maha Periayavaa immeditely put his Divine Feet down from the mena.
    Then Sri Vedamurthy submitted each coin at HIS feet and it took quite some time.
    Maha Periyavaa just sat silently throughout this period.
    What a GRACE and What a Blessing.
