Mumbai, Nov 7: The ‘prasadam’ offered in the form of a coconut at the popular Ulepady Gudde temple, situated in the boundary of Mulki near Mangalore, has sprung a surprise.
Sridhar Kundar, a petty shop-keeper operating at Vakola, near Miranda Compound, Santacruz East in the metro, has arrived recently at his native place after 9 years in metro, who was presented with a few coconuts as ‘prasadam’ when he visited Ulepady Gudde temple, with known divinity attached since ages. He has placed the ‘prasadam’ at the altar in his house. He observed that one of the coconuts had shrunk in size after few days. He broke the shell of the coconut to find the copra resembling Ganapati positioned on a mouse, believed to be his carrier.
Moreover when he broke the shell of another coconut, he found the copra resembling the Ganapati with an elephantine trunk. Both of them were seem to be co-related, to the dismay of believers!
