Getting closer, we saw people were pushing each other to force their way to get a darshan of Mahaperiyava. There was no discpline or any kind of orderliness. The local police was merely watching and did nothing to regulate the crowd. In such a situation, the best we could do was to get just a glimpse of Mahaperiyava and that too from a distance. It left all of us in deep disappointment. I felt so frustrated that I picked up an argument with the policemen who were not doing their jobs to regulate the crowd. In my mind, I prayed and wished to have Mahperiyava's darshan again, not just a glimpse but for a much longer time.
Many weeks later, I got a phone call from my company's manufacturing plant in Ranipet that the Kanchi Acharyas (all three of them) would be visiting the factory next day and I was invited to receive Them!
Aho Baghyam, Aho Baghyam, I was indeed blessed to receive Mahaperiyava with Poorna Kumbam honors. He did not enter the factory gates but permanently entered into my heart forever! No doubt, Mahaperiyava answered my prayers so graciously that I spent over one hour with Him accompanying Him on the road.
